The Space

Beautiful Victorian with extensive gardens and pool. 1/2 hr from NYC via commuter bus on corner or train 2 blocks away. Walking distance to many restaurants, movie theater, parks, grocery stores.

This is a 2nd floor bedroom w/ queen Sleep Number (adjustable firmness) bed and shared bath. The room has a desk and dresser. There is no space in this room for an additional mattress or bed. The bathroom is shared in the sense that it is the 2nd floor hall bathroom so there is no direct entrance from the bedroom to the bathroom. However no one else actually uses that bathroom. I have plenty of off-street parking. Free wireless internet. FIOS. Guests may use the extensive public spaces, including two parlors, dining room, 2 TV rooms (1st and 3rd floor), and eat-in kitchen.

Outdoors, the garden has flowers April-October. The pool is open June-August, although I can open it earlier or leave it open later by special request and with enough notice. In the pool area are a several tables with chairs or benches, plenty of lounge chairs, and a gas grill. There is a lovely screened-in gazebo with comfortable seating and a small table with benches. The gazebo gives a completely different view and feel to the gardens. Near the gazebo is a pond and stream with a bench.

This is a good house for children age 5 and up, especially in the summer when the pool is open. No child is allowed in the pool without a parent or responsible adult watching. The house is not toddler-proof so I prefer not to have children under 3-4 years old (except babies).

I will allow pets, but only by special prior arrangement.

I also list two other rooms with airbnb, both on the 3rd floor: Mermaid (queen bed + roll-away twin) and Trains (2-3 twin beds). This room cannot accommodate a third person as there isn't enough floor space for another bed, but either of the 3rd floor rooms can hold a third person (for an extra fee).

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Juliet is a congenial, generous host. Flowers suited me very nicely, with a Sleep Number bed, desk for my computer, and closet space. Her kitchen is also nicely equipped for cooking, and the pool is a terrific plus in the summer! The bus to NYC stops 100 yards away, which couldn't be better, and shopping is within easy walking distance. Montclair is such a beautiful town to stay in, with plenty to do. I would definitely enjoy staying here again!

  • We had a great week long stay with Juliet. The house and grounds are beautiful, the room was great.

    I commuted into the city every day, very easy to do from her place by bus or train. Juliet was very knowledgeable about the area and helpful in providing information about how to get around and where to go. Would highly recommend!

  • Really nice house close the train station and valley road (shops and restaurants).
    Juliet is friendly and discrete.
    It was easy to be around her without disturbing.
    The room is comfortable. We slept very well.
    Whenever the time we entered or left the house, we were confident and comfortable.
    Nice place to return!
    Sincere thanks to Juliet!

  • The business part of our trip was not so much fun, but staying with Juliet made up for it!
    I'm tempted not to leave *too* much good feedback for fear that her place will get too popular and she won't have any room the next time we want to stay there! ;-)
    Thanks for another great stay, Juliet!

  • We enjoyed our stay immensely. Juliet's house is wonderful, the garden and pool delightful, and a very convenient location.

    We will be staying again next time we visit our daughter in Hoboken.

  • Beautiful house with a fabulous garden and pool. The house is in a perfect location near shops and restaurants and the bus/train to the city. It was a perfect getaway for a weekend. The room is comfortable and clean. Juliet is a very nice host.

  • Juliet was a great host. She was very flexible with our schedule and made us feel right at home. Taking a swim in the pool after a long day was awesome. I wish we had had more time to wander through the garden, it was quite impressive looking.

I'm quiet but sociable. I rarely watch TV because I have better things to do. I read a lot of books, mostly Science Fiction and Fantasy, and a lot of science/technology magazines. I have a passion for old books and own far too many of them. I like to bake, but don't much enjoy regular cooking. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. My children are grown and mostly moved out which leaves me rattling around in my dream house. I've always loved to have visitors and enjoy sharing my lovely house, gardens, and town with other people. I like to travel, but haven't had as much opportunity to do so outside the US as I'd like.
