We stayed here to attend a friends party at the Raritan Inn down the road. Iris was accommodating and nice. Rooms were large and lovely. Highly recommended.

I was greeted warmly and given a tour of the house when I arrived. The bedsheets were luxurious. My breakfast was beautifully presented and delicious. I would definitely stay again.

Owners Iris and Rafi were very nice and extremely accommodating. The house is beautiful...stay here if you want old charm and something different than a hotel room. Everything was clean. There are nice restaurants right down the road, too, so even though it is a quaint town, it is very much on the map. Iris made a cake that was heavenly.....had it with my coffee. Twice!!

Lovely,historic farmhouse. Our hosts were very accommodating and eager to be sure we had what we needed, including maps of the area and a variety of breakfast choices. Thank you, Iris and Rafa. We enjoyed breakfast conversations with the other guests.

Very enjoyable. The Kadoshes are friendly people and made the stay comfortable. Very historic house in Long Valley.

We were new to this part of NJ having usually just slogged through to the Tappen Zee. This historic house really provided a wonderful view of green NJ and Iris could not have been a better host and cook. I recommend The Neighbor House to everyone.
5 on May 16, 2015
Iris and Rafi hosted us like long-time friends. The house is grand and steeped in history; we lived like royalty for five nights. Peaceful countryside lay all around, yet dining, shopping, recreation, and sightseeing were just a few miles in any direction. Breakfast was good and plentiful, and Iris baked wonderful coffee cakes. We are telling all our friends about the Neighbour House and already thinking of a return visit.

A beautiful place in a lovely setting. The owners were lovely.

A lovely place with period details, but lived-in rather than fussy. Generous breakfast. Best of all -- warm and friendly hosts.
4.2 on December 10, 2014
My husband and I stayed here because we were going to a party locally and we were very pleased. Rafi made us feel very welcomed and cooked us a delicious breakfast. Highly recommend staying here.
4.2 on December 01, 2014
I took my lady on a trip through New Jersey's back roads with the expectation we'd wind our way into Morris County toward the late afternoon. In anticipation of this, I'd reserved accommodation at the Neighbor House for some exposure to open pastures, horses and forest. Iris and Rafi greeted us with a tour of the restored farm house and our room. The detail and comforts of their Inn are worth the visit. Everything was as pictured and described. Only positive surprises. We had dinner at an upscale pub up the road at the town intersection. Nearby the Inn is a farmstand, sheep dairy, the breakfast served was fresh and without compromise, as in, it wasn't a cheap spread of empty carbs. Morris County is full of little highlights making it a fun day trip. It's even better with a cozy farmhouse inn to stay the night or weekend.
5 on November 26, 2014
Iris and Rafi were extremely warm and welcoming guest. My wife and I were there for our anniversary. When we got into our room, we were treated to a bottle of wine left by our hosts. Iris also convinced us to ge to The Cafe Wine Bar down the road instead of our original dinner plans. The restaurant was divine as was this B&B. We will be back.
5 on October 27, 2014
The hosts were thoughtful, well- read judging by the extensive book collection, interesting, and joined in some interesting discussions. I would love to return again.
5 on October 01, 2014
We have never met more sincere, friendly innkeepers in all our travels. Iris and Rapha wecomed us into their home and made us feel so very comfortable. The breakfast was simply a feast! The rooms were lovely, the beds comfortable and very clean. We can not wait to visit again.
5 on September 12, 2014
I stayed here when I was participating in a recent craft show which was nearby. Iris and Rafi are wonderful hosts and I will definitely return. I recommend the Neighbour House B&B.
4.6 on August 20, 2014
A wonderful place to stay! Rafi and Iris are the perfect hosts; gracious, welcoming, kind...just delightful people. The house is beautiful and spacious with attention given to the little details to make your stay perfect. We were celebrating our anniversary and my husband's birthday, and it was a perfect weekend. Highly recommended! Can't wait to go back for a visit!

4.2 on August 13, 2014
We came to Long Valley for a family wedding and stayed for a full week at Neighbour House. We were wonderfully looked after at Neighbour House and would recommend it.
4.8 on August 11, 2014
What a treat and treasure the Neighbour House is to the Long Valley area. Loved it here, and yet my wife and I are wanting to also keep it our best kept secret too. The trip we took to the area was meant for getting back to some roots, but little did we know, or expect, that this would be part of the high light of our trip too. We have never stayed, before, at a bed and breakfast. But I can say this much....We will for sure be back again. Forget the hotels. This is the way to go in this area, for sure!
3.4 on August 07, 2014
A very nice B&B. The hosts are welcoming, the room was comfortable and the breakfast ample. The setting and views are spectacular, only marred by the vehicles the owner uses in his construction business. When we arrived, I thought that perhaps there was construction going on in the B&B, but I guess they are always present. Not a huge deal, but it does detract from the overall idyllic nature of the surroundings.
5 on July 23, 2014
beautiful historic house that isn't overdone or too decorated. the owners are laid back - not in your business - which was great for my family of mixed generations. It was nice not to feel like a guest in someone's home where you have to make constant conversation. The owners were friendly, just not pushy like I've experienced at other B&Bs. They lent my son a basketball to play in the driveway. Breakfast was lovely with the best coffee cake EVER.
5 on July 06, 2014
A very nice setting in a country surroundings and close to charming Long Valley. Beautiful house from 1800's well preserved by the very friendly hosts and the breakfast are great. Ideal for a long weekend vacation.
5 on June 27, 2014
My husband and I stayed at The Neighbour House for two nights. I had one of the best nights of sleep in a long time. The property was beautiful and peaceful, the room comfortable and clean, and last but certainly not least, our hosts Iris and Rafi were so graceful and friendly. Breakfast was delicious. We intend on staying there from now on she we are up that way visiting our relatives. Highly recommend.
4.8 on June 20, 2014
We have arrived much later at night as originally planned and it was nice to see our host left note on the doors with cell numbers to call. Their son welcomed us and walked us to our room. We had choice -Pink or White room. We have selected white room.We stayed only one night.This place had very nice home feel to it, old cottage charm like bedrooms and definitely comfortable for couple. The bed was very comfortable, sheets very soft, We have enjoyed nice breeze coming in through opened windows, room had very cozy ambiance.The bathroom had everything we need for shower(except we could't find large towels-only one) Breakfast was served little too early for us-8AM. But didn't mind to get nice early start in romantic setting of the dinning room.Seasonal fresh fruits, yogurts, bunt cake and our choice of eggs and toast were served. Everything was served on old beautiful china. Another couple who stayed at this place joined us. Hostess Iris was attentive and pleasant offered coffee refills.BTW, very good coffee. Rafi, her husband came to say hello and thanked us for our stay. After the breakfast we went back upstairs to take a nap. At that hour, local traffic picked up and I could hear the cars quite a bit. Maybe next time we try Pink room located on the other side of the house. Well kept property, old historical home with nice decor. Great getaway for couples. Close to the historic Chester and Peapack/ Gladstone, NJ.

We go to the Neighbour House regularly when we visit my sister in the area and we always enjoy our stay! The rooms, the house and the grounds are lovely. The breakfast is a something my daughters look forward too at every stay and the hosts are charming and friendly.
5 on May 12, 2014
Highly recommended for weekend get aways and business travelers. In addition, every two years my wife and I rent the whole home for our out of town guests. Our out of town guests are always excited to stay at the Neighbour House. Iris and Raffie could not be better hosts. They genuinely care about the experience and are very proud of the gorgeous home. The property is very quite and quaint. Just sit on the front or back porch rocking chairs and relax. The house is very close to town, the river, bike paths and restaurants. There are other B & Bs in the area, which are great, but they fall short of the personal touch that the Neighbor House provides.
5 on April 22, 2014
Very nice accommodations! The owner welcomed us and made a great breakfast in the morning. Highly recommend!
5 on April 16, 2014
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.
5 on April 16, 2014
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!
5 on April 11, 2014
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.
4.8 on February 18, 2014
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
4.4 on December 11, 2013
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!

5 on September 18, 2013
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.
5 on August 19, 2013
We had a wonderful time! Very relaxing weekend.
2.6 on August 14, 2013
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?
5 on June 23, 2013
Beautiful 1830s home. Wonderful proprietors.
5 on June 20, 2013
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.
5 on June 06, 2013
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. The Neighbour House was perfect and a delight . Iris and Rafi took good care of us. The view from the back porch reminded us why we like country living and LV especially. This is now our destination if staying in LV!
4.2 on May 30, 2013
Wonderful breakfast by Iris, who is a charming hostess.
5 on May 27, 2013
The Neighbor House is well appointed with each room in this large house updated with beautiful wallpaper and lovely bedding. The dining room is precious and breakfast was wonderful. My sister joined me one morning for breakfast and she said she felt like she was in heaven. Long Valley is a beautiful area of New Jersey. I highly recommend this B&B.
4.8 on January 10, 2013
The Neighbor House was a perfect choice for our visit. Quiet, clean, and very historic. Lovely setting. Breakfast was excellant. They have everything I want from a b&b. So much better than a hotel!!
4.8 on November 05, 2012
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!
4.6 on October 31, 2012
Nice rooms - quite and quaint location -- close to restaurants/pub............
3.8 on October 25, 2012
Nice location - lots of things to do in the area. The house has lots of history and the accommodations were fine - just keep in mind the house is hundreds of years old. If that isn't your thing this might not be the place for you. The owners were very friendly and acommodating. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
4.8 on October 24, 2012
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!
3.8 on October 04, 2012
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. Mr and Mrs Kadosh make you feel welcome and at home and offer helpful ideas for area attractions. I would definitely return and refer friends! You defiantly do not feel like you are in New Jersey., it was the perfect getaway for only driving an hour and a half!!

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

comfortable, charming,attractive house, well mained with alot of original details. Hosts were friendly. Rooms lacked a little bit of the extra touch a BNB is known for like robes, soft towels. BUT realize they did not offer any of these things in their ad.
5 on June 18, 2012
The Neighbor House is a superb Victorian mansion set atop a hill in a wonderful farm setting. It's like stepping back in time. Rafi and Iris were great hosts who make a concerted effort at ensuring the comfort of their guests. The rooms were nice and comfortable and the breakfast was marvelous. I recommend The Neighbor House and I would certainly go back for another visit.
4.2 on June 17, 2012
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. This beautiful house and the lovely host family provided us with respite from an intense experience. It will now be my place of choice for any activities in the Gladstone area.
5 on June 13, 2012
We just loved this place. It is absolutely beautiful, the bedroom was lovely, the bed very comfortable. And Iris and Rafi were wonderful. Warm and friendly in just the right amount. Breakfast was sinfully delicious! Lovely area with a sweet little historic area that has a dining "village" with several different choices of restaurants to choose from. The town is walkable with a path along the river.
4.8 on June 08, 2012
This great B&B exceeded my expectations. Iris and Rafi really made me feel at home. The rooms are all gorgeous, and are true to the history of this beautiful historic building. Sitting outside on the patio and looking out over the landscape was extremely relaxing. I have already made plans to return.
5 on June 04, 2012
We loved our stay and have recommended the place already to family and friends ... Spotless, wonderfully well-kept, inside and on surrounding gardens/fields. Breakfast was great, and the hosts very gracious and attentive... We'll definitely go there again! Barbara and Philip Muntzel

Enjoyed my stay at the Neighbour House very much. Will come again.
3.8 on April 17, 2012
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.
4.0 on February 02, 2012
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 even put the fireplace on for us in the afternoon so that we could drink our wine by it. Breakfast also included a woodburning fire! 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!

Neighbour House B&B in Long Valley NJ was very pleasant and surprisingly affordable. We'd be delighted to return. The home is historic, so expect uneven floors and authentic furnishings, but the bedding and bathroom are modern, clean and very comfortable.

My Friend and i spent another wonderful weekend at the Neighbor House. This is my 3rd year in a row. Everytime is better than the last. Iris and Rafi are exceptional hosts. They are the nicest people and so knowledgeable on what to do in the area. We thank Iris for telling us about the Willowgrove Farm where we went for an hour trail ride on the most beautiful Clydesdale horses. Lots of relaxing, eating and fun. Cant wait for next year!

The owners, Iris & Rafi, were very pleasant and friendly during our one night stay. They were very accommodating especially since we arrived before the posted check-in time.

If you're in the area and you're looking for somewhere to stay, this is the place!

I was very, very comfortable at The Neighbour House. It's in a beautiful location, my room was comfortable, and the owners were very friendly. The room was warm when I arrived but the air conditioner quickly cooled it and I slept quite well. I stayed here while on a business trip and my schedule included an early departure. Ravi made an early breakfast for me and it was the best breakfast I've had in the last month of traveling. I will stay here again when in the area!

The property and the house are impeccably maintained. The tree in the backyard must be over 300 years old! The surrounding property and town are beautiful and have a lot of rural charm. Iris and Rafi were very efficient, accommodating, and friendly, but not effusively so, which I appreciated. The variety of the breakfast spread and all of the little extra soaps and features in the bedroom made me feel like I was in a hotel. They have been running this B&B for over 20 years and it shows! We will definitely be back.

The Kadosh's made us feel right at home, and we had a wonderful weekend. Nice hiking nearby as well!

Iris and Rafi are great hosts: no sooner had they served us a great breakfast this morning than they were out clearing the long driveway of 4 inches of snow so that we could all drive out safely. Just an example of their attention to detail. Lovely stay in a beautiful house set in lovely grounds.

Two words really made our Neighbour House experience very good: Clean & Welcoming. The home itself is beautiful. The owners were very friendly and the home cooked treats that were included were a lot of fun. Breakfast in the dining room with a warm fireplace was a very good experience.

Another lovely visit to see family and friends and enjoy the warmth and charm of the Neighbour House. The snow at Christmas, and the good cheer of the inn keepers, Iris and Rafi, has continued to be a regular part of our holiday tradition. This is a wonderful place to stay.

We spent two nights at The Neighborhood House in a room with a shared bath over Christmas. Very comfortable and Iris is an attentive hostess. We left early because of an impending blizzard but would stay there again.

My wife and I have stayed with Iris and Rafi many times when we are in town to visit my parents. Each time we come, we are treated as one of the family. The conversation is pleasant and the freshly made breakfast is excellent. We would recommend their accommodations to anyone visiting the area.

We rented a few rooms in the B&B on a Sunda to get some photos. With our larger than anticipated entourage, the hosts were friendly, gracious, understanding and helpful throughout. The B&B is beautifully appointed, and the rooms seem warm and inviting. I'd love to go back for a weekend getaway!

The room was very clean, warm, and the bed was extremely comfortable. I stayed in the pink room, and even with a shared bathroom it was still a nice place to stay. Iris was also very accomodating with the breakfast- I am vegetarian and she made a lovely meatless, eggless meal.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay over the holiday weekend. Rooms were spacious, homey and quiet. The breakfasts exceed what I expected, warm rolls and homemade breads. I highly recommend staying here and look forward to a return trip.

The Neighbor House is charmingly appointed, comfortable and clean. This was our second stay and we would choose to come back again. We happened to visit over the Halloween weekend and enjoyed the fun and festive decorations. Breakfast was beautifully presented and delicious. Thank you, Iris & Rafi!

Perfectly fine without being overly decorated or fussy. Lovely site, very good bed, run by nice family. Would visit again.

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.

This place is in a stunning area, close to many restaurants and a number of parks and places for hikes. The staff are extremely nice, and breakfast was great.

Staying at the Neighborhood House exceeded my expectations in every way. The house itself is charming, and it was spotlessly clean. The service was gracious in every way, and the food was an absolute delight. We were fortunate to have beautiful crisp fall weather, and I enjoyed a morning walk along the river that ran on the other side of the street. I highly recommend the Neighborhood house for a personal getaway or for a family celebration.

We got up later than the posted breakfast time but Iris was very accommodating, prepared the meal for us right then and the food was great. The room was really nice, nice atmosphere, clean, small fridge in room was a nice touch. Would recommend to family and friends.

The Neighbour House is the perfect place to stay if you want a change of pace from staying in a hotel but still want a comfortable, luxurious room. Rafi, Iris and the family are so friendly and accomodating - breakfast is always delicious. We have stayed there twice while visiting family in the area and will definitely stay again - we love it!

Amazing find. Pristine, renovated Greek revival B&B in gorgeous setting. Feel like you're at 5 star resort in the country, only 1 hour from NYC.

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.

My stay at the Neighbour House was both wonderful and a great surprise. The house, grounds and Innkeepers were beyond descriptions in the flyer. The beautiful house nestled in country fileds and trees is both beautiful and restful. I would recommend this B&B to anyone that appreciates a rural feel to its location and top service!

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!

Owners Rafi and Iris made me feel welcome and provided a great room at a reasonable rate. Just about an hour from NYC. Impeccably clean, quaint and the best scrambled eggs ever.

We are from canada and we have stayed at the Neighbour House on four different occasions and always had a wonderful experience. When in the area we plan on staying there again... The innkeepers rafi and iris are so laid back it really feel as though you are in your own home. The setting is gorgeous in all seasons especially if you are coming from a big city: it is the countryside at its best and the house itself is amazing. We really love the hospitality and the proximity to New York city.

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.
5 on May 30, 2008
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!
