The George Inn
37 N. Mountain Ave., Montclair
Legendary makeup artist Bobbi Brown has always had incredible taste; she’s also devoted to all things clean, from organic food to non-toxic cleaning and beauty products. She and her husband, Steven Plofker, have renovated a gorgeous old family home-turned-hotel-in-disrepair into The George Inn, a 32-room boutique hotel. Stunningly restored, the generous, airy rooms are updated with chic touches everywhere, from fire-engine-red mini fridges from Smeg, Hudson Bay blankets, linens from Flaneur, and more. Every room has its own collection of black-and-white photographs, each relating to a different name: The “Steven” room, for instance, has portraits of Steve McQueen, Steve Jobs, and Steven Tyler, etc. Organic breakfast and high tea are served in cozy rooms downstairs—there are plenty of places to lounge by a fireplace and leaf through cool art books, or stare out the enormous old windows at the trees. There’s even a closet that’s a mini pop-up shop of Brown’s next venture, JustBobbi. The inn is set to open its doors to guests in March 2018.
