Great time had by all, from very young to very old, fun for all.
We had a wonderful stay in this house!. The pictures online really did not do the house justice because the house has so much character and it is a gorgeous mansion that sat in a historic row. All the guests raved about how beautiful this house is and how perfect it was for our purpose. It was close enough to drive to Manhattan and has great amenities if people decide to just stay in. The deck was huge and we had a deck party one night where we played music and danced. The pool was nice and people cooled off there as we had a couple of dog day afternoons. When I initially inquired about the house, Rob said they did not have AC on the ground floor so I was pleasantly surprised when we got in because he installed a portable AC that kept the ground floor cool. And did I mention that Rob was a darling to work with? He provided great customer service and responded to our calls quickly. On day one, he checked to make sure we arrived safely and did not have problems getting in the house. Since it is an old house, there are a couple of issues. A couple of rooms in the attic are warm and we had some problems looking for outlets for the wall AC and the pool area lights did not work at night. These issues are negligible, given how much more we got out of our stay. Thank you Rob for your warm reception. The memories of the time we spent in your beautiful home will keep us warm for a long long time.
We were a family of 16 and the house allowed for everyone to have their own space. The Bullard room was a huge hit my nephews were in there about 60% of the time playing pool . We spent a lot of time at the pool and even in the hot tub. The hot tub setting was so relaxing and even on a warm day the tree cover made the area comfortable to sit in the hot tub and relax. The house was very clean upon our arrival and the owner Rob was prompt whenever we had questions . For example we had a very violet wind storm come through and it seemed to cause an issue and tripped one of the breakers but we called Rob and he stayed on the phone with me till the issue was resolved.
We were in the house during some very hot days and the a/c in the kitchen and living room kept the main floor at a comfortable temperature the bedrooms each had a/c
I would recommend if you are going to utilize the weight room basement area to bring a fan as it helps circulate the air in this area and keep it comfortable. ( we slept in the basement area because one of the family members was unable to use the steps so they slept on the futon in the basement
The house is generously stocked to care for your immediate needs of toiletries and condiments
Thank you for a great vacation !!!!
As a large family from the UK visiting New York we went for this property and we were not disappointed.
Rob met us when we arrived and showed us around. The pictures do not do this property justice.
The weather was kind to us so we made full use of the outside areas. We were visiting some sailing friends who were berthed at Liberty Landing Marina. The journey takes about 40 minutes and was a good spot to park and from there you could get the short ferry crossing into the heart of New York.
Rob was a true gent, we had a lovely time and would thoroughly recommend staying at this house.
We were a big work group who stayed at this lovely property in New Jersey just minutes from our job site. Everyone had a private room (8 bedrooms in this place!), but we spent most of our time either around the fire pit on the deck enjoying the secluded back yard or playing pool and darts inside.
The outdoor pool was refreshing and the hot tub relaxing. There were deer and wild turkeys wandering through the yard. It feels like you are living in an old tudor mansion. So much character and comfort.
Thank you for a wonderful home to call home for the week! It was perfect!!
I was getting married and needed a place to accommodate 20 family members from London, Canada, and the USA! Everyone loved the place, with its amazing patio, and charming rooms. A very historic place from antiquity, but yet had the modern conveniences we needed. It's location was great! Close to Edison, and shops at Menlo park mall. The train station is literally down the street, making it easy to take day trips into NYC. Rob was very accommodating and communicative. Any questions we had, we would text or call and he would get back to us right away. I would recommend this place to anyone to getaway to a quiet but quaint neighborhood. Great for family get togethers, reunions, etc. a true Homeaway from home.
