We were in town for a family wedding and enjoyed our stay at the Neighbor House tremendously. Other family members were there too, and the quality of our time together was really special, in part because of the special environment the owners have created. We will be back.

We were in Long Valley for a family wedding and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Neighbour House. Located in a beautiful rural setting with vast acres of farmland in the back, it was an idyllic retreat. We felt like we stepped back in time as we relaxed in the parlor and enjoyed learning about 200 years of history in this beautifully maintained inn. There are 4 bedrooms with for guests on the second floor off a large landing so there was a small community space on the upstairs for late-night chats. Breakfast was beautifully served on fine china and made to order. Iris and Rafi are wonderful hosts! I think that we will find opportunities to visit family so that we can stay there again!

This was a wonderful place to stay. We arrived very late one evening. They welcomed us and had a fantastic breakfast for us in the morning. Thank you for being so accommodating.

I'd have to say that this room at the neighbor house was extraordinary and awesome, I mean you could have a fancy hotel room with pool and casino but for something like this was perfect. It's quiet, peaceful, and fits the mood perfectly. Book the yellow room, all rooms have a fireplace. My gf loved the room that I got her there. My advice to anyone, if you want to have a great night with your girlfriend or wife or husband take them here to the neighbor house you won't be disappointed

This is a wonderful find in Long Valley! Iris and Rafi were warm and friendly hosts. The room we stayed in was had its own bathroom and king size bed. It was quiet and cozy with very comfortable bedding. Rafi and Iris made us a delicious breakfast each of the two mornings we were there. They also gave us great dining suggestions right down the street from the Inn. We will absolutely be back when we are in town again!

It is a lovely home, well maintained, with many areas besides the nice bedrooms to relax: front porch with rockers, back porch with comfortable loungers and two nice rooms on the first floor. The hosts are friendly and well informed about the local sites and the ways to get to the train to NYC. The food was terrific, and knowing that Annie could not have any dairy, the hostess made a breakfast cake for her without any dairy.

We spent very little time there, so the shared bathroom situation was not too inconvenient. The key to the inn that we were given did not work and we had to wake up the innkeeper in the middle of the night to solve the problem. And the hostess, who has a rather brusque and unwelcoming manner, made it clear that no breakfast would be served after 9 AM (although we explained we would out late attending a 50th birthday party.) My husband was able to sweet-talk her into leaving some cereal and muffins out for us that we could take "to go" upon leaving around 10:30 AM. Their priority was to go to the Jersey shore that day and we were obviously something of an inconvenience. Physically the place is handsome but the hospitality was lacking. Particularly annoying was the mini-fridge in the room with a note taped on it that bottled water would cost $1, and to leave the money on the table. How cheap can you get?

We stayed at Neighbour House for a week in May and had a wonderful time. The local region had many interesting things to see and do. Iris and Rafi and thieir sons welcomed us warmly and helped us in various positive ways in organizing our time during our visit. Iris' breakfasts were excellent and always included various delicious homebaked goodies. We do not hesitate to recommend this Bed and Breakfast.

My wife and I were in LV to reconnect with friends and family. We are living in Hong Kong and since our home in Long Valley is rented, needed a place to stay.

My girlfriend and parents traveled here to celebrate my Mom's 50th birthday. The house was fully decorated for Halloween and provided a great atmosphere and extremely comfortable B+B Setting. The service was amazing, we even got a special bottle of champagne to help celebrate the occasion - we couldn't have asked for more. The breakfast the next morning was amazing, everything cooked to order with several other deserts, treats, cereals, etc. available. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a B+B type of setting in this area, you couldn't have better service or a more comfortable bed to sleep in!

My boyfriend and I cannot say enough great things about The Neighbor House. In fact, we loved it so much that we're already planning on returning within the next six weeks. Rafi and his wife Iris were terrific hosts. They were warm, accommodating and informative. The house was exceptionally clean and well maintained. We had everything we could have possibly needed - a stocked bathroom, a small fridge with water and soda, alarm clock, comfortable bed, etc. Breakfast really blew us away - we arrived downstairs to beautiful seasonal fruit plates and homemade pastries galore. Rafi served us coffee and then offered us the most delicious scrambled eggs. The location is ideal - only a mile or so away from a few apple orchards and a corner that had three or four restaurants. We really enjoyed the casual atmosphere and delicious food at the Brew Pub and ended up visiting it twice for dinner and lunch. Melick's Farm and Ort Orchards are close by; we visited Melick's and enjoyed the animals and excellent apples. It was much less crowded than Ort's, which we liked. Truly - this was a wonderful weekend and we're so grateful to Rafi and Iris for hosting us at their beautiful B&B!

This is a relaxing bed and breakfast at a great location! Located perfectly without much noise and not more than a 5 minute drive to town in which there great shopping and dining.

The Neighbour House B&B is a very quaint, romantic and return to the 19th / 20th century charm. Our room was very very spacious with beautiful views of the mountains in NJ and corn fields as far as your eye can see. You felt like you were back in time. It was amazingly relaxing and a wonderful place to stay. We took our bikes and rode 16 miles on the Columbia Trail. (very romantic, and accessible right across the street). The Inn Keepers, Rafi & Iris and their sons were very attentive and helpful. The breakfast was nice and simple, and they asked us what we wanted, it wasn't just a cookie cutter breakfast. We felt very welcomed by them. We would definitely return and recommend to our friends. THANK YOU Rafi & Iris for making us feel at home. We had dinner at a nearby restaurant/brewery/pub which was very nice as well. Perfect weekend! Arelys & Gonzalo

The Neighbor House is a superb Victorian mansion set atop a hill in a wonderful farm setting. It's like stepping back in time.

A number of friends of mine and I stayed at The Neighbour Hosue for four days while involved with horse activities at Hamilton Farm, home of the US Equestrian Federation.

The room was very nice. I rated this "met expectations" as the picture on the website, taken with a wide angle lens, suggested the room to be larger than in reality. It was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom exceeded expectations as it was large, clean, and well-equiped. The service was very good. The owners ensured we had everything we needed, but didn't over-intrude. The food was wonderful - the hosts are very good cooks. I also noticed the inn, while very old, was very nicely maintained (great paint job on the walls!). Overall, I would recommend this B&B and would definitely return if in the area.

This B&B is very clean and is the cheapest place to stay in the area. The innkeepers could not be nicer. The breakfast was worth going back for.

They called us to let us know we left a coat there and they will hold on to it for us until we can return. Really nice stay!

Matt and myself stayed here a few weekends ago (on a Sunday afternoon/evening through Monday) for our one year anniversary. From the moment we pulled up the driveway we knew this would be a nice experience. The property is set back by farms and cornfields-which in the fall gives it a beautiful look. The house was immaculate and so interesting with all of the old style woodwork and feel. Both owners were so very friendly and hospitable. We reserved the Pink room which was so cute! A large queen size bed (which was VERY comfortable) as well as a fireplace, dresser, television, some chairs and a refrigerator. We also saw there was a complimentary bottle of wine left for us as well! The evening was relaxing and nice, and the next morning there was a nice sized breakfast awaiting us. Home made coffee cakes, bagels, etc as well as eggs made to order. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a nice getaway (we didn't even have to leave our hometown to "getaway") We will definitely be returning in the future.

The Neighbour House B&B is a north Jersey hidden special treat. The home is historic and the Innkeepers are very knowledgable about the home and previous owners for the past 200 years. The home is beautifuly kept by the innkeepers and they enjoy sharing stories about the owners of long, long ago. Iris and Rafi are very warm and welcoming innkeepers who serve a lovely breakfast including made to order eggs. We recommend the "yellow room" with the antique 4 poster bed and original wide board floors. We would stay again if in the area and already recommended to family and friends.

After my wife and I got married, we stayed at the Neighbour house right before our Honeymoon. The experience was good enough to make us stay again when we visit her family in New Jersey two years later! We live in Arizona now, but look forward to being able to stay here. There should be one more rating field for outdoor ambiance for the Bed and Breakfast... here it is wonderful. There is a creek right across the road to the outside of the Neighbour House and there is a trail that you can run on and get some exercise in the morning. You can access the trail via West Mill Road... when it intersects with Schooley's Mountain Road, turn left and cross the bridge and the trail is on the other side of the Church. The trail goes a few miles and comes out near West Mill Road and you can take this back to the Neighborhouse. There is a bike shop near this intersection of Schooley's Mountain Road and West Mill where you can rent bikes. There's space for kids to play outside if you want, and also an extremely rustic feel to the inside of the inn. Everything is elegant wood, hand carved and extravagant, but not so flashy that it makes you feel out of place. Classical music gets played over breakfast in the morning. The breakfast and hospitality was very good. I tried playing the piano downstairs. It was a bit (well a lot) out of tune, but still a nice touch just that it was there. There is a nice huge TV downstairs if anyone is looking for modernity, but we honestly didn't use it because there was enough else to do. The bedrooms are very romantic (tea candles in the fireplace with matches in the dresser) and don't worry that the rustic look... the bathrooms are all updated and there's no 100 year old plumbing. If you have allergies you may want to be careful about the field behind the house... but in New Jersey there's no shelter from that anyway. We'll be staying here again someday.

The Neighbour House was perfect! I was staying in the area for a conference and needed a clean comfortable place with good value. The owners are wonderful hosts and were very thoughtful. I fully enjoyed my stay and would return if my plans take me to the area again. The inn is authentic and has all the charm of an historic structure, but with clean and modern conveniences as well. It is well worth the stay. Much to my pleasure, the one negative review I read on the web before my stay there was totally wrong and must have been written by a malcontent! Enjoy!

My wife and I always enjoy our stay at The Neighbor House when visiting my family in Long Valley. It is a beautiful home and Iris and Rafi are excellent hosts.

We were warmly welcomed and made comfortable. Iris and Rafi are very pleasant people and we enjoyed our conversations with them. The two breakfasts were excellent...they make great 'over-lightly' eggs.

We have made it a tradition of visiting the Neighbour House. It has become like a second home to us! Innkeepers Rafi and Iris are warm and welcoming, the atmosphere is calm, the surroundings beautiful. It truly feels like our home away from home.

My husband and I stayed here overnight on our honeymoon and we wished we could stay longer! Iris and Rafi are really wonderful people and made us feel right at home in their lovely farmhouse. The surrounding area is rich with history and provides a guest with a lot of things to do. We'll definitely be coming back the next time we travel to New Jersey!
