We rented this lovely home for a sales team offsite. It was perfect! We played darts, pool and badminton and just relaxed and enjoyed ourselves in the backyard of this adorable house. The hosts were so kind and helpful and even let us linger a bit past our end time because our colleagues didn’t want to leave. Thank you Thomas!!

We had a wonderful shoot here. The property was beautiful and had multiple spots to shoot in that felt a bit different. Tommy was super helpful and responsive with anything we needed. I would definitely recommend!

About Montclair

The township of Montclair is a wealthy, liberal, and diverse bedroom community in Essex County encompassing 6.25 square miles. The 2020 census marked the population at 40,894. From the higher elevations in the Township, one can see the skyline of New York City from 12 miles away. The timing of the Montclair-New York commute averages 38 minutes each way on the NJ Transit rail to Penn Station.

Montclair was incorporated as a township in 1868 to enable the building of a second rail line. In 1894, Montclair was reincorporated as a town. However, in the latter part of the 20th century, the citizens protested the inequities of the revenue-sharing system of the Federal government. In 1980, Montclair was reincorporated back into the township of Montclair to take advantage of the larger sharing of Federal aid to municipalities.

The residents of Montclair have the typical lifestyle of an affluent bedroom community with access to the vibrancy of New York City. The Township supports the arts, culture, history, parks, and open public spaces. You should have no trouble finding the perfect film shoot location in Montclair.
