The SpaceA majestic house right on Rainbow Lake in Parsippany, NJ, located 31 miles from NYC. The Suite has a large loft room with it's own small, full bathroom (it's a lakehouse, give us a break). There's another room off to the side with a table and 4 chairs that you can sit, eat a meal, or play cards at with plenty of closet space for extended stays (and a laundry room should you need it). Outside, you have access to a fire pit, a canoe, a paddleboat, and comfy chairs to sit in. One Hoboken guest told us, "I can't believe how beautiful this lake is, so close to NYC!" On the first floor is a kitchen, nook space overlooking the lake, and large living room with a fire place. You're welcome to use the 1st floor space, just be aware that we'll be using it too (and our beloved doggie, Sweet Pea will want to be your new best friend). Positive energy and socializing would be expected. : ) Guest AccessGuest can enter the suite by following the walkway to the back of the house (towards the lake) and entering through the sliding glass door.
In the spring, fall, and summer seasons, guests will have access to the beach walk, sand volleyball court, tennis courts, club house with live music on the weekends (all a 5 minute walk). Interaction with GuestsAs much as you want. You can reach out to us by text, call, email, or come find us on the 1st floor. The Neighborhood****PLEASE NOTE THIS HOUSE IS LOCATED IN A LOVELY NEIGHBORHOOD SURROUNDED WITH LONG TERM RESIDENTS. THIS HOUSE IS IDEAL FOR A QUIET GETAWAY. PREFER CALMER RENTALS. ******
If you like eating out, there are some great restaurants nearby:
- Sogo - sushi and hibachi
- Cafe Metro - organic, locally grown
- Ah Pizz - pizza, italian
- Denville Dairy - if you're an ice cream fan, you can't miss this place. In the summer, the lines are way out the door.
- Thatcher McGee's - Irish bar and restaurant
- Veggie Heaven - vegetarian and vegan fare Getting AroundClosest public bus is about 1/2 mile away. Train to NYC is about 1 miles away. Uber works great too. Minutes away from hiking in Tourne Park, 10 minutes from shopping at Rockaway Mall, movie theatres, etc. Other Things to NoteWe have a lovable dog, Sweet Pea. She stays with us on the first floor and is not allowed downstairs in your suite. Guests who have pet allergies have not had any problems as the suite is separate from our living space. If you plan to venture upstairs, please note that Sweet Pea will be curious and want to sniff you and get petted by you. She is very sweet, but is deaf as a doornail. If she's sleeping when you come up, she won't hear you and may be startled when she wakes up and finds new people in her space. It will take her all of 5 minutes before she goes back about her normal life:)
