READ THE COMPLETE DESCRIPTION CAREFULLY!! Our property is a Rustic, lived in house with eclectic decor. This property is only a 30 minute train ride from the city (of Manhattan) but when you are here it feels like you are a million miles away in the countryside. We are located in West Orange, the home of the Edison Plant (a national historical site). This is the perfect base for a vacation to the city or just a getaway. We also have an Irish pub available on our drive way.

The space
We are two professionals living in this home offering a small bedroom off the laundry room for short term rental. As previously mentioned this is an older, very lived in home. Rich with history and sometimes strange noises (the force steam heat can click, the wood beams settle as the weather changes, etc.) We actively use the house and do our best to respect our guests and expect the same. This room is adjacent to the laundry room which has a half bath. The door to the laundry room can stay locked between 9pm and 9am but will need to remain open during the day. The room has a drapery separating it from the laundry room for privacy. Please see the pictures before deciding to rent. We respect your space and will not enter your room, but may be in and out of the laundry room during the day.

This is the perfect place for someone who just needs a place to sleep while traveling/working in the area. And you have access to the other amenities in the house as well. There is a full (shared) kitchen, yoga room, living room with TV and fireplace, small library/art space, and the full bath with shower and tub is on the upstairs floor. This bathroom is shared with the other AirBNB guest(s) as applicable and the two roommates.

If you are interested in staying but want a larger space consider our other listing on AirBNB!

Guest access
Laundry room, living room with TV (WiFi enabled) and fireplace, full kitchen, dining area, upstairs deck, downstairs patio, yoga room, surrounding yard area, small library/art space.

Other things to note
There is a television in the family room that is available to use, but no TV in the bedroom. Also we do not subscribe to cable but have Netflix, YouTube, and Hulu connected to the family room TV.

Besides the Edison Plant down the hill you can travel a few moments to Eagle Rock Reservation for the absolute best view of the City (of Manhattan) from ANYWHERE!!! (You have to see it to believe it.) We are in New Jersey so there are diners everywhere. And if you like sushi there is a new all you can eat sushi restaurant right down the street. We always suggest the Shillelagh Club for a pint of Guinness (it IS on our driveway after all), and if you are into craft beer we have a ton of info for you!

I am a free spirited wanderer. A storyteller and an adventurer. I love all things travel and I love the local experience that I can get from sharing with hosts.
During your stay
How much interaction you would like is entirely up to you. One of us works from home so there is almost always someone available and you are welcome to join us for coffee/breakfast in the morning or TV and maybe a fire in the family room in the evening. If you would prefer time to yourself let us know and we can accommodate your need for space!
