Chefs kitchen, sunny, antique house, 30 min to NYC

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a short stay (30 minute drive from the city) while renovating our apartment in NYC.

Booking went seamlessly (David is fast to respond and very accommodating).

The house is gorgeous, tastfully decorated (mix of Art Deco and modern), chefs kitchen overlooking the winter garden, sun filled bedrooms.

We even threw a dinner party for our friends - we couldn't resist hosting at the massive dining room with a Tiffany chandelier and a piano.

Would recommend for families, couples. Also ask David for NYC culture tips. He is your man.

Gorgeous, metropolitan area retreat

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I were visiting family in Montclair and were looking for a nearby place. The home was large and beautiful. We easily were able to host our family for dinner, and then we went for a lovely walk around the historic town. David was hilarious and only a text away. We really enjoyed our time and would stay again!

Very pleasantly surprised

  • 5 of 5

The booking process and communication with the owner was easy and quite funny. David is quick to respond and has a knack for whimsical remarks that were just a preview of the things to come.

We planned a family reunion and wanted to be reasonably close to the city but without the undue stress and sky-scraper high hotel prices. Plus, we wanted a true family getaway where we can all sit, dine and spend quality time like we did when we were all young in a home-type environment.

The pictures are great but they do not truly convey the homeliness and the character that the house provides. It is a huge 3 story turn of the century home that is accented by all sorts of art and antiques with real hardwood floors that occasionally even squeak. My wife is much more of an expert than me in such matters but she said that the character of the house comes alive with the help of antiques from all sorts of eras and regions of the world.

All that I can say is that I loved the new amenities that were seamlessly incorporated in this old home.

Thank you for letting us enjoy your home. We truly felt welcome and will definitely come back again!

Perfect for those who appreciate art

  • 5 of 5

This historic house is on a tree lined very quiet street in a pretty suburban town of Glen Ridge. The train station is just a few minutes walk away and the train goes right into NYC faster than you can find street parking! And much cheaper than the tolls. A few blocks away is Montclair, full of restaurants and shopping. You could walk, drive or take an Uber to get ther; I chose to walk on the beautiful weekend. This house is a true part of American history, all original inside, furnished with museum quality antiques, and high ceilings. Probably close to 3000 sq feet of pleasure, including a sauna- incredible! Compare it to a hotel room and rejoice. David, the owner was just a text away with a great sense of humor and amazingly hospitable. It was sparking clean and comfortable. I would give this place 6 stars if I could and am definitely coming back just to stay at this house in the future! I recommend this property to anybody with taste and love of art, history, and comfort. It's amazing that thanks to VRBO you can travel with such class, and comfort and have so much space; a true vacation.

PS it's sits back on the big lot surrounded by lots of foliage. Very private

Comfortable stay in a beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property from David for a family Christmas get together. With people coming from all parts of the world we needed a space that was big enough for all yet provided privacy when needed. The house is on a quiet, easy to get to town in a GREAT area. Train station four blocks away that goes right into NYC and a few blocks away from Montclair NJ for restaurants and shopping. The house has so much character and space, we loved it. David the owner was soo easy to work with (this I can not stress enough) and was peach of a man answering all questions promptly not matter how annoying they were. I would abs. recommend this property and owner if you need a larger property. He was delightful. They even dropped off a bottle of champagne for the new year!! We had an easy trip in an amazing house rented by an amazing man!!

unimpressed with antiques

  • 1 of 5

I would not recommend this property. Cleanliness was not regarded with the highest priority.It did not live up to my standard of living. The responsible person left in charge thought a request of a regular coffee pot and an iron/ironing board was unusual. The outside wasn't maintained well. All trees and shrubs were overgrown. You couldn't even see the front door! Not very welcoming.The problem,as I see it, is that the owners live there. They took a vacation while my family "moved in". If that's the kind of conditions they want to live in, that's their business; but renting a house for top dollar requires that it be kept spotless, especially the kitchen, with an ample supply of linens to accommodate a family of 5 for 10 days. If they want repeat customers!

Owner's Response: Place is spotless as on the photographs , we have a team of cleaning people who are keeping place in perfect shape for us and for our guests. We don't provide ironing board and its not listed on the website. We do have nesspresso coffee machine for guests to use. We have mature vegetation and we keep it tall for us and our guests privacy and feel of being in the greenery not city. we have plenty of towels and linens. We were hosting numerous guests from all over the world and had movies and tv shows filmed at our house. We had nothing but praise and desire to come back, and repeated visits. I will be happy to provide you with references.
