About this listing
Cozy guest room is quiet and comfortably sleeps 2 and you'll have your own bathroom. The house is on a quiet, tree-lined street just a 15 minute walk to the train to NYC (30 mins to Penn Sta). We have a large fully-equipped kitchen. Linens included.
Looking for a cozy getaway for two? Want to see a show at the Wellmont Theater? Or a great place to stay outside the city but close enough to sightsee everyday? Look no further!
Montclair is a charming old town that is a destination unto itself: visit the Montclair Museum of Art, hang out at one of our coffee shops, browse for antiques or dine at one of the over 100 restaurants in town.
We are easily accessible to Manhattan. Only a short walk to the train or bus to New York City; 30 minute drive by car. Once there, you have easy access to all the great neighborhoods that make New York City a worldwide destination. A native Brooklynite, I'm happy to make recommendations of sights to see in the city, assist with reservations, etc
Our house is on a quiet tree-lined block. The second-floor room is a haven; very quiet and light-filled. It's a perfect to retreat after a big day of sightseeing. On the first floor you'll find a large living room with a fireplace, a large dining room, powder room and kitchen - all of which is available for your use. Enjoy a glass of wine on the front porch or in front of the fire when it's chilly. Off street parking is included, as are wifi and FIOS TV. I will make coffee in the morning for you.

I look forward to welcoming you to my home!
We have a fully equipped kitchen (even an espresso machine) that you are welcome to use. You can linger after breakfast in the dining room or relax in front of the fire after dinner in the living room, as you like. Or, if you prefer, our town has many good restaurants, many of which are BYO so you can splurge on the wine without breaking the bank!
We have a TV, wifi, and the NYTimes is delivered every morning (though I have dibs on the crossword). Off-street parking is required at over night.
Interaction with Guests
I'm generally around during the day and I am happy to give advice about what to do in Montclair and the neighboring towns (museums, theatre, restaurants), sightseeing in NYC, or hiking in New Jersey and can be available to help out with transportation questions. Rides to/from Newark Airport can be negotiated.
The station for the train into the city is a pleasant 15 minute walk along tree-lined streets. The train take 30 minutes into either Hoboken or New York City and $6.25/adult, $2.75/child, $51.50/week. The airport is 20 minutes away by car.
No smoking in the house. Please be respectful of the children's school routine - you can come in late, if quietly. We have 2 cats so we cannot accommodate pets - though contained animals (hamsters, reptiles and the like) would be fine, but at your risk.
