vacation rental description

If you prefer a huge comfortable home to a tiny apt in New York City, then this is your sanctuary just 30 mins outside of Manhattan! Nestled among multi-million dollar homes, Eaton House (former home of U.S. Congressman Charles A. Eaton) is a lovely antique farmhouse offering 7/8 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 5 woodburning fireplaces, approx. 1000 SF Gourmet kitchen, formal living, dining, media room/office, den, laundry room and outdoor courtyard. The home is centrally air-conditioned throughout and sleeps 25 on 8 beds and 10 couches.

A tranquil escape set on about 2 acres of lush greenery, Eaton House is a short distance outside Manhattan within 30 mins by train to Penn Station in Midtown Manhattan. It is the ideal getaway to celebrate a special occasion, family reunion or serve as a base from which to explore New York City, while still enjoying the warmth, comfort and relaxation only a large country home located in one of New Jersey's wealthiest counties can provide.

If you take New Jersey transit from Penn Station to Summit, NJ, you can rent a car from Enterprise at less than 1/4 of what you'll pay in NYC.
