Copying a massive directory over the internet

How can I reliably transfer a massive directory with lots of files over the internet? It's a one-time thing.

I have a directory on a computer on the east coast containing over 40,000 files (mostly photos), and taking up approximately 200 GB. I want to transfer the entire directory over the internet to a computer on the west coast. Since the destination computer is a laptop and the connection is unreliable, the transfer needs to be resumable.
This is only a one-time transfer, so I don't want to setup a huge system for just one use.
What's the best way to do this?
