“a very nice experience”
Reviewed August 13, 2006

This is a very charming, large, old house set in the leafy suburban town of Summit, about 45 minutes by train from New York City. Our hosts, the Roses, were friendly, eager and hard-working, accomodating to our needs, and served an excellent breakfast , either in the large dining room, or out on the comfortable veranda.

The room was comfortable, charming, and had a great bed. Though the exterior is under renovation and will look great when finished, the work on the outside did not at all effect our comfort, and the interior is fully decorated in a period Victorian style.

If you're looking for something other than the standard hotel experience in this area, there aren't many options, and I would certainly recommend this place.

I stayed here as the location is extremely convenient with walking distance to Summit Station from where there are NJ transit trains to NYC/Jersey City and shuttle bus to Warren, where i worked short time. The owners are very kind, hospitable people - and the room is a bargain given pricey Summit Plaza being the only other hotel and another B&B I'd rather not mention. Breakfast is awesome, a new treat everyday with fresh fruit and coffee and they have wireless internet along with cable in the room as well. Whether you are here on business or just sightseeing around Jersey or even NYC, this is a very warm and comfy place to stay, highly recommend it.

Beautiful B&B nestled in a quaint town, which you can view while relaxing on the large front porch. Service was outstanding, including a complete gourmet breakfast! Rooms were clean with very comfortable beds and cozy sheets! Authentic antinques decorate the rooms as well as the large dining, sitting and library areas. The convenient location makes this a great place to stay if commuting to, or visiting, NYC. HIghly recommend!
