The Van Vleck House and Garden is a beautiful place to escape the hustle of life and let your mind wonder. When the wisteria is in bloom the smell is intoxicating and puts a smile on your face. Sunday afternoons in the summer often draw locals to sit on the lawn of the mansion and listen to musicians play under the summer sun. The gardeners do a great job maintaining & enhancing the property. I would consider the Van Vleck House and Garden to be a hidden gem among the streets of Upper Montclair!

An oasis in Montclair where you can go to enjoy the grounds of this former estate to take in the gardens and landscape or just lay out on the lawns and read a book or watch the clouds pass overhead. A little zen will level you out for outside hustle & bustle.

This location boasts beautiful gardens, with a tour available. It is a lovely way to spend a pretty day. The house is charming; we attended a special event and found it to be a gracious venue.
