Private room & bath in a renovated 1890s home on the nicest street in Ohio City. Short walk to restaurants, bars, contemporary art venues, and the fantastic West Side Market. Easy access to anywhere in Cleveland via car, bus or train.

As lifelong Clevelanders we know the food/art/music scene well. Will share Cleveland gems that aren't in the guidebooks. Tell us what interests you and we'll give you a customized list of things to see and do. Students: ask for our special rate.

The space
Private bedroom and bath with tub/shower on second floor. Hair dryer, shampoo, etc. provided. Iron/ironing board available.

Adjacent sitting area serves as shared access to our bedroom, so we may cross paths from time to time.

We are happy to talk with you about places to visit, eat, play, etc. Or we'll let you fend for yourself if you prefer less interaction, just say so.

For more than 40 years the Near West Side/Ohio City has been our home, and we wouldn't live anywhere else. It's diverse and friendly, walkable and interesting. The people are as unique as the architecture, and in recent years there's been an explosion of new restaurants, shops, breweries and people walking their dogs.

The RTA bus to downtown is 3 blocks away, and the Red Line train to the airport is a ten minute walk. You can easily walk or bike to West 25th St. with its many bars, shops and restaurants as well as the fantastic West Side Market.

The Gordon Square Arts District is only a mile west, downtown less than two miles east, and beautiful University Circle, with its colleges, museums and Severance Hall, home of the Cleveland Orchestra is a 15-minute drive (also accessible by the Red Line train).

Within a 4 block radius: Rising Star Coffee (best in town); The Transformer Station, a unique contemporary art space (free!); Momocho, Le Petit Triangle, and Johnny Mango (food & drink); Fairview Park (lovely green space just across the street); St. Patrick's Catholic and Franklin Circle UCC churches (if you're so inclined). A bike/walk trail to Edgewater Park on Lake Erie starts just a few blocks away.

Al is a designer and retired college professor of Visual Communication & Design. Joanne is a retired school psychologist. We have two adult children who grew up in this house and nine (!) grandkids. We are experienced travelers who've visited various places in the UK, Scandinavia, Spain and France. When we travel we prefer to stay in B&Bs, to walk or take public transit whenever possible, and to avoid "tourist traps" and franchise operations in favor of places locals visit and eat at. We'd love to help you learn about Cleveland in the same way. UPDATE (July 2019) I'm sorry to say that when you visit you won't have a chance to meet Joanne. She was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease in 2014 and in June 2019 moved to a memory care facility. Even though she isn't able to meet you, I trust that you'll feel her warmth and hospitality that I believe permeates the walls of the house where we spent 45 happy years together.
