Built in the early 1900's, the house was designed and built to replicate the Virginia Governor's Mansion. It's Neo-Classical style boasts grand rooms, tall ceilings and sits on half an acre- in town !!. The interior has been renovated and restored while meticulously showcasing the original details. The exterior awaits a fresh coat of paint as part of the final restoration.
The 2 rooms for rent are fully furnished, and designer detailed. There's substantial lighting, closets and inviting linens.
I offer a Continental Style breakfast including fresh organic eggs from my own backyard hens which can be enjoyed either on our enclosed glass porch surrounded by greenery, or while sitting in the familiarity of the family kitchen. WiFi accessibility and cable TV keeps you in touch and ready to go.

No smoking in or around house.
Thank you so much. What a great family, host, and home in a beautiful city! I definitely recommend!
My husband and I stayed for two nights in their gorgous home and found the room to be beautiful and cozy! Lonna was very friendly and provided tons of information about local restaurants that was very helpful.
Was really kind and very hospitable!! I had a great time staying with Lonna and her family! It snowed really horribly the first day I was there and Lonna was kind enough to offer to drive me locally to look around the area (I'm new to the area and looking to rent an apartment). I was very busy with work so wasn't able to spend much time with them but the experience was great regardless! Their house is also very beautiful! Lonna was kind enough to make me breakfast every morning which I appreciated with my very busy schedule!
A wonderful, beautiful place to stay. I requested a room last minute and Lonna was very accomodating. The home is just as pictured on the site. I especially appreciated how clean everything was and breakfast was healthy and delicious! Lonna is a great host and fun to talk with, not too intrusive. Also very quiet and easy to find off the main route through the town.
Lonna made the visit enjoyable. She was exceedingly pleasant and accommodating. The Home is exceedingly attractive and the room was elegant and spacious. Access was easy: "Downtown" Montclair and the library were walking distance and NYC was easily accessible at least at the times I chose to go there. I would without question be happy to stay there again.
Since we arrived to her place we felt welcome, her husband show us around as soon we enter the house, it's a charming place I wish we had more time to enjoy the place! All clean and arranged; very polite family, if I come back I wish we can stay at this place

Originally from Washington DC, I now live with my husband and children in Montclair NJ. Through the years, my long love affair with antique and vintage objects has led me to work with wonderful clients to furnish and restore their homes. Flea markets, estate sales and auctions are a passion of mine. It doesn't matter if I am buying or browsing, local or abroad, there are so many goodies to choose from. Recently, I decided to try my hand at being an urban farm girl and joined the agrarian movement with backyard chickens, specifically 6 beautiful hens. Fresh, delicious, sunshine yellow eggs ..PERFECT !!
