This 'Bed and Breakfast' type of property offers rooms and baths in a shared environment and is a perfect heaven for travelers passing through or those who come for extended stay.

The location is convenient for exploring New York City (just half an hour from Times Square by bus or train) and it is recommended for those who prefer to rest in a beautiful, clean and lushly wooded suburb after an intense day in NYC. Montclair has its own Attractions: Art Museum, art cinema, seven parks designed by Olmstead Bros., ice-skating rink 5 min. from the house, and tons of exciting shops, restaurants and cafes. The house is very clean and comfortable. The beds are real and there is an assortment of sizes: three twin beds, two double size beds and one queen size bed all together. There are two full baths at the house, so sharing them is necessary when more than two separate parties are present. There is an upright Baldwin piano in the living room which you are welcome to use for your pleasure. If you choose (per arrangement with other guests, if any) to prepare your own meals, you'll find fully equipped kitchen. A $5 donation to the kitchen (when used for cooking lunch or dinner) is suggested and well appreciated. On nice days we have breakfast on my sunny deck surrounded by trees. Breakfast is included in the price and consists of coffee, tea, juice, a house special called Anna's Magical Oatmeal and Raisins, breads, cheeses and eggs. The Doremifasol is vegetarian, which means I do not serve meat, but you can bring your own as long as it was cooked somewhere else. You should have a wonderfully restful and healthful time in The Doremifasol. I hope to see you soon!

Perfect stay for me and my son while visiting family in the area
I knew from the time I saw the photo of the kitchen that I had to stay at the Doremifasol, and Anna certainly didn't let me down! Although we were prepared to share a room, Anna made another room available for my son. Both rooms were very quiet and comfortable, just off the kitchen you see in the photo, with a lovely, clean and newly renovated bathroom (with shower). My bed, which I think may have been queen-sized, was perfect for me-- very firm, with several pillows of varying softness. I slept very well every night. The wifi worked great, the room was very comfortable, and there was plenty of room in the closet to store suitcases and clothing. Anna's breakfasts were indeed fantastic-- my son is still talking about her legendary porridge, almost a month later. As one of the previous reviewers said, as soon as you step foot in the Doremifasol, you feel at home, but, also, your life just gets more interesting. Her home is filled with art and books about art; the refrigerator door is covered with lovely family photos and interesting haikus; and my son enjoyed playing the piano in the front room, where she kept some toys and crayons for younger children as well. Anna regaled us with stories about her own family background, showed us her family photos, and even taught us how to make sourdough rye bread. Anna is so welcoming and generous (with her time, her thoughts, and her stories) that I felt truly blessed: our stay at the Doremifasol, which I booked on a whim, turned out to be an incredibly moving and memorable gift that I can honestly say that I will never forget. I can't recommend the Doremifasol or Anna more highly!

Tia and her son Yoram wer perfect guests. They are respectful, super polite and cordial, smart and pleasant to be around. They left the place in perfect condition and they left me with lovely memories of their stay. I recommend Tia with,or without her beautiful son, to all the hosts anywhere. She is a true gem of a guest.

Anna's B&B
Staying at Anna's is like staying at the home of an old friend. She is a warm, considerate hostess who is thoughtful about the comfort of her guests. Her home is delightful. She is an artist, and her home is filled with works of art in various mediums, as well as books and music. Her kitchen is beautiful, and she serves a lovely breakfast. I will return.

Delightful, quiet refuge with full breakfast and charming innkeeper
I was delighted to stay at this BnB surrounded by trees on a quiet street in Montclair. Anna the innkeeper is a warm and charming person who maintains very clean and comfortable rooms. She also provides a delicious and hearty breakfast at the convenience of her guests. I'll definitely be coming back.

Home away from Home
We wanted to thank the host, Anna, for opening up her home and for the wonderful stay. She went out of her way to make us feel at home. She even made an earlier breakfast, as we had to go into work. We will cherish the new friendship that was formed.

Home away from home
What a wonderful and warm experience, staying at anna's. The house is homey and artistic at the same time. Art is Everywhere, and books as well. You feel like your life has instantly got more interesting, just by hanging out surrounded by the culture. To add to the experience, Anna is a wonderful cook.Her breakfasts are legendary, as are her soups. Location for visiting NYC is perfect. You are staying in a small quiet town, no crowds, no noise, no pollution, but the train (bus on weekends) takes you to the city center in about half an hour.

About the neighbourhood
This lovely suburban neighborhood consists mostly of families with school age children. The streets are lined with old oaks and maples, the houses are beautiful and well maintained. Besides NYC being half an hour away there are many things to do here, like visit our Art Museum (10 min. ride), see a rock concert at Wellmont Theatre (5 min.drive), or a recently released foreign film at Clairidge Cinema (5 min. drive). You can catch an exquisite show at the Alexander Kasser Theatre at only $20/ticket (10 min. drive), and to complete a fulfilling evening out you can dine in a variety of excellent restaurants of varied ethnic backgrounds. Transportation to NYC is easy: the bus is 10 min.walk, the train is 15 min. walk. If you prefer to leave your car at the bus/train stop, you can do it, too. The trip lasts about 30-40 min. on either one.
