Wonderful!! Spacious! Historical colonial. Really fun!
My family had a family celebration and this home was perfect for all of us to be in one place!!
Chefs kitchen, sunny, antique house, 30 min to NYC
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.
Perfect for those who appreciate art
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
Gorgeous, metropolitan area retreat
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!
Comfortable stay in a beautiful home.
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!!
Very pleasantly surprised
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!
