The Space

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!

  • I wish it would not be the last time in Johns house in Montclair. It definetely will not be the last time in regardless of what John's AirBnB accomodations!

  • This was one of our most incredible stays. John has a gift for being a host, taking care of every single detail. We woke him up at 3am when we arrived as our flight got delayed due to the midwest storms. Rather than being grumpy he was so warm and welcoming, it was really touching. His hounds are adorable, all three of them with very special personalities. Can't wait to be back! Now Montclair is a destination for us.

  • 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.
