The house is close to concert venues, trains to NYC, dining and shopping. This private room is on the 2nd floor and shares the bathroom with the home owners.

The space

This room has 2 twin beds. It is on the 2nd floor. There is a shared bathroom. Sheets & towels provided.

There are AC window units during the summer.

My neighborhood is a quiet, diverse suburb with trees and uneven sidewalks. The train station is about a 15 minute walk and gets you to NYC in 35 minutes for $13.50 round trip. There's a bus stop nearby but additional connections are needed to get to NYC. Montclair has tons of restaurants with a wide range of prices and palettes. Most are BYOB. My immediate neighborhood has a Chinese take out, pizza joint, and Caribbean take out so if you arrive starving, food is immediately available. The 15 minute walk to the main drag brings you to lots of shops, antique stores, a museum and coffee shops. There's a University at the far end of town.

Guest access

You have use of the common rooms, kitchen, living room, dining room, and you can keep food in my fridge, and cook if you like. There is FIOS internet but no TV. :(. I can accommodate 1 car per room in my driveway. There is no overnight parking on the street.

Interaction with guests

I'm pretty laid back. I will make recommendations on things to see and do in NYC and Montclair. I work full time but will be happy to chat at days end and hear about your adventures. My husband and April, the cat, are my co-hosts.

I have stayed at Besty's place for the second time and every time I come to New Jersey I wish I could stay there. Now Betsy and Mr. Richardson are like family to me. Their home is nice, beautiful and at the best ever location. They are the greatest hosts I have ever been to in all my Airbnb experience. I would like to recommend them and their home to every travelled coming to Airbnb.

Wow what an experience with Betsy and Mr. Richardson. Betsy and Mr. Richardson were like true parents...caring and taking care of everything. We didn't get a taxi at the glen ridge station so I called Mr. Richardson and he was there to pick us up. Likewise in the evening Betsy took me out to buy me some groceries. I must say that this was like an experience I will never forget. I stayed with them for 4 days and it felt like they are my family. Betsy and Mr. Richardson are so gentle, nice and lovely people. I will recommend every person looking for a place in glen ridge or Montclair should book with Richardson's. Thanks Betsy and Mr. Richardson to make my stay so pleasurable.

Betsy was very easy to work with and quickly responded. Her home was easy to navigate and the bed was very comfortable! She had coffee made early every morning which was great! During my trip to Boston, I stayed for two nights the first week and two on my way home to Tennessee. I will certainly return someday.

We had a great stay at Betsy's place. We didn't have the chance to meet Betsy but her nice husband took good care of us! The house is not close to NYC but was perfect to rest, it was cosy and clean. We recommend that place!

Betsy's place is wonderful! It's in a beautiful town on a beautiful street. It's not far from some great food options. The room and bathroom were clean and perfect for our stay. They gave us some great suggestions for food and drinks in the area too!

I enjoy meeting new people which is why I choose to share my home with you IF you complete your profile with picture and verification.

I have extra rooms since my children have moved out. I'm in a nice neighborhood of single family homes, safe for walking to and from the train or bus.

My life motto: do the right thing, be fair.
