Life is good in Montclair.
Delighted to offer this bedroom for two in a cozy corner of my home. Enjoy your own private space in this beautifully maintained 1907 Victorian Craftsman style home in Montclair NJ. A beautiful home with lots of original details and classic, eclectic charm. Hardwood floors throughout, beautiful moldings, newly renovated kitchen and two fireplaces. Enjoy a glass of wine on the wrap around porch, or in front of the fire when it's cold outside.
Located in downtown Montclair, the home is an easy walk to shops, restaurants and cultural activities. Montclair is a charming old town that could be 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.
And 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 the Theater District, Hells Kitchen, Chelsea, the Village, Chinatown, Little Italy and all the great neighborhoods that make New York City a worldwide destinations. A native New Yorker, I'm happy to make recommendations of sights to see in the city, assist with reservations, etc
Off street parking is included, as are wifi and FIOS TV. I will make coffee in the morning for you. Please note that three retired greyhounds named Phinneas, Josie and Bernadette will welcome you upon arrival. Travelers must be dog-friendly.

I look forward to welcoming you to my home!
Very Charming older 3 story home in Montclair New Jersey. John is a very accommodating host. The house is got lots of interesting art work and antiques and the rooms are very warm and comfortable.
I would recommend the property highly!
My fifth time at John's house turned out to be a bigger international AirBnB gathering, if not a meeting of friends of 3 different nations.
Thanks for the very nice dinners and talks in John's kitchen with Arman's very nice family from Istanbul in a warm house in strong winter conditions here in New Jersey - feeling like home.
John is such an amazing host!! He's warm, friendly and holds a library of stories. His pets reflect this similar quality (if they could speak, I'm sure they'd have chapters of interesting stories - they're rescues who are truly enjoying their retirement days). They're all so laid back and welcoming! John's home is a home-away-from home.
Our trip to Montclair for a show at the historic Wellmont Theatre was perfectly underscored with a stay a John's beautiful home—a top notch experience from start to finish. He was exceptionally accommodating throughout the entire process from the booking of our stay through our departure. The room was beautiful, spacious, and clean and the other guests were very friendly. John's home is perfectly located within walking distance from vibrant downtown Montclair and John was very helpful in recommending restaurants and places of interest. He was very welcoming with a glass of wine upon our return from the show and had coffee ready in the morning before we hit the road. To top it all off, he has three wonderful greyhounds that are so sweet and friendly and make the experience even better. We will definitely be staying with John for all trips back to the area. Highly recommended!
John was a fantastic host with an exceptional home. If you are looking for some peace and quiet this is the place to be. John was respectful and extremely hospitable. Would absolutely stay again
John has created a fabulous and interesting bed and breakfast in a quiet, Montclair, New Jersey neighborhood. The overall vibe of his home is classy and tasteful with some fun and unique touches-one example being a sitting room with a fireplace and leather couch and a suit armor with disco balls at his feet. The bed and bedding was incredibly comfortable; the house was full of guests and yet we felt a sense of privacy and comfort. John was very welcoming and helpful with regard to making recommendations for locals restaurants. Without hesitation, we would highly recommend staying with John.
Once again John is the consummate host. Plus his other guests were friendly and respectful. This time I stayed in a different room and it was as comfortable and well decorated as the first room.
John and I gotten to know each other over the past number of weeks that I have stayed with him and I am happy now, to call him my friend. He does everything possible to make his guests comfortable and is such a lovely conversationalist.
I highly, highly recommend a stay in the quaint town of Montclair with your lodging any one of John's beautiful suites or rooms!
Open arms, warm heart...the best description for John Hughes and his wonderful family of friends (Kir!) and beautiful, personality filled greyhound pups. My fabulous airbnb experiences continue and the special, out of the ordinary things John did to help me out were so far above and beyond expectations. Raining when I returned home from work followed by an exhausting apartment search, he picked me up at the train station so I didn't have to walk home after dark, even though it was perfectly safe. I arrived a day early and was going to spend the night in Manhattan and he allowed me to unload all of my stuff, so I didn't have to do it in the city, then reload, then unload again at his place. Coffee waiting in the mornings...what a welcome way to start the day. Beautiful surroundings - John's home, my room, the massive bathroom with excellent water pressure, the comfortable den and beckoning kitchen...where John and I spent many an hour chatting and getting to know each other. This is one special place and if you are passing within 100 miles of Montclair, book a night or more with John so you can enjoy the area restaurants, Montclair and surrounding towns with quaint streets filled with fun, boutique shopping and specialty shops. Can't say enough about Gelatti's in Caldwell with homemade ice cream and gelato in sweet flavors you'd never imagined but are sooo good. Make a plan, book some time at John's, and kick back and relax, because the environment of calm surrounds you in his oasis of beauty and welcoming! I'm going back!
John is a great host and the place is well kept and very functional
