High speed internet throughout house with wi-fi, printer, the livingroom has a flatscreen TV with cable/DVR and Apple TV (800+ movies). There's also a PS3 you can use that accesses NetFlix.

You're welcome to smoke on the deck or covered porch but outdoors only please. Outside there are porch & deck chairs and a seasonal hammock.

Interaction with guests

This is my home too but I give people all the space they want. Generally the house is very quiet.

I sometimes rent out my other spare room to medical students & interns at the nearby hospital so there may be another guest staying here. They are usually responsible, quiet & rarely home.

Other things to note

If you need a later check-out let me know. If you just need to keep luggage here until the afternoon or evening that's fine with me (like if you have an interview or out sightseeing until a late flight- I can put it in my storage bedroom/office). Just let me know.

I do have a medium-sized dog, Parker, but he's friendly, super gentle in nature/calm, doesn't shed, keeps to himself, doesn't bark (ever) & hangs out in my room sleeping most of the time. Pets are welcomed to stay here with you as well (short-term) since my dog gets along with everyone. Please see house rules regarding pets (stays greater than 5 days require an additional fee to be discussed prior to booking.

Parties/Events negotiable.

No illegal activity.

Be courteous of others including not being disruptive at night/early morning near the other bedrooms. Please take loud phone calls downstairs.

Children under 2 are negotiable. I have a do have a locking gate but you would need to bring any mandatory items. Stays would probably ok for a night but would like to discuss first.

Pets are definitely welcome for short stays & encouraged!
Negotiable for extended stays. (Must discuss first- PRIOR to booking.). For stays longer than 2 days then the pet will be an added cost $10/night each pet- just as a second or third person would be additional. Right to cancel reservation at any time for pets that chew furniture/etc, bark/howl constantly all night & disturb others, show aggression/bite or go bathroom in my house. Clean up after your pet (fur, poo, etc). If you need to leave your pet for extended amounts of time we need to discuss PRIOR to booking. Although I am not a kennel/sitter, nor charging kennel fees- most situations will probably be ok for a low-maintenance dog/cat/other to be here alone/with me and Parker (dog). Maybe.

You will be responsible for cleaning your own room during your stay and please do not leave garbage on the floor or food open that could create a rodents and/or bug problem.
Please clean up after yourself in common areas (dishes in dishwasher & clean stove/counters when cooking, wipe bathroom sink down after shaving, change garbage can when full, sort your recycling, etc, etc). I do have a maid come in 2 hours times once month but that cost is including in your cleaning fees.

No persons convicted of (or even arrested) with violent, theft or sexual-based offenses/felonies. May cancel at any time for non disclosure. Safety of myself and others and everyone's possessions are our first priorities! SORRY!

Please send me a message about yourself when you request to book i.e. why you need a place for a day, week or month (traveling through, in town for work/school, vacationing, in between leases, etc), age, occupation, where you're from, who will be staying with you & for how many days, any pets, etc.
Also please let me know if you are driving or flying into CLE (or other means). **Most importantly!-Let me know in your first message an estimated time range you'll arrive here. (You can give me a more exact time that day via text.)
I like to greet guests to show them around and exchange keys. If we are unable to meet I do have a combination lockbox on the front door with the house key.

Janet’s home is charming and the attention to detail provided by print outs of things to do and local attractions was great! I would stay again in a heartbeat.

We booked a last minute stay with Janet and were very happy with the overall experience. The room was clean and comfortable, Parker (the pup) was incredibly sweet, and Janet was super accommodating. She also has tons of info for guests to make their visit to Cleveland more enjoyable. We would definitely stay again.

This was a great stay and a great value. Very close to downtown and quick to get on the highway. Janet also provided an excellent list of recommendations for activities and food which were spot on. Uber/Lyft offers very affordable travel to/from downtown which could save a lot on parking. Overall very satisfied, would definitely stay again.

Janet was a wonderful host. She provided everything I needed and was flexible with my schedule. The house was modern and well-decorated and the area was safe and residential. Parker is also the best dog you could ask for. Would recommend this place for short or long stays

I was in need of last minute overnight accommodations and hoped a listing was available on Airbnb. This is where Janet and Scott helped! They greeted me at the door along with their sweet dog, Parker. We talked about what brought me in town and they told me about their beautiful Victorian home. Janet then explained the room along with the shares bathrooms and available, shared kitchen. The room was perfect for what I needed. There was a locked closet, TV in the room and even a small refrigerator too. The room was nicely decorated and very clean. Thank you both for a wonderful stay!

Janet User ProfileJanet is a superhost.

Nurse that loves to travel, ski, mountain bike & rock climb. Traveled for work for a few years and now back home to Cleveland.
Renting primarily to medical students since we are steps to the the nearby hospital, MetroHealth, but welcome all guests!
Co-host 2 properties with my fiance, Scott; a businessman that works from home and often travels for work too.
I bought a fixer-upper 2 years ago and we are proud of the craftsmanship and grandeur of my (our) Victorian home! Just opened up and started managing the property next door as a dedicated AirBnB. There was such a high demand for our 2 rooms here! Now we will be up to 5 soon...

As a hosts we are pretty accommodating and flexible but like to give you space & privacy too. We enjoy meeting & chatting with new people. We have guests stay here from all over the world. We really try to maintain that superhost status and we will be at 100 reviews soon enough!

We have occasionally used AirBnB as guests in the past. We try to always be courteous and make a minimal impact.

Looking forward to meeting you and promise you will have a fantastic stay!
