Come stay with our family in a comfortable, private suite with a private bath and separate kitchen. The suite is located on the third-floor of our 1902 Victorian home. The house is rich with original elaborate woodwork, musical instruments and artwork throughout. The available room has a skylight for bright, natural light and has a queen-size bed with a new memory foam mattress.
Only 12 miles west of New York City, Montclair is a quick, 35-minute train ride to Penn Station - making our house the perfect alternative for travelers, students and couples wishing to tour NYC. We are located within a five-minute walk to the New Jersey Transit Midtown Direct train station at Bay Street. Frequent bus service is also available.
During your stay in our home, you will hear lots of music. Mia is a voice teacher and opera singer, Violetta is a professional harpist and Sam is a singing actor. You will also enjoy a home-made breakfast of your choice (allergies will be considered) created by Mia. Additional meals, voice lessons and English-language instruction can be provided by special arrangement.
The home is located on a beautiful tree-lined street of Victorian homes in artsy Montclair, New Jersey. There are many restaurants of all ethnicities (Ethiopian, Italian, Chinese, Thai, Southern American, etc.). The Montclair Art Museum is a short distance away along with multiple galleries and great shopping.
