About this listing
We offer a private bedroom (comfortable king size futon bed) on the second floor of a well maintained century home. Guests may choose from either a large bathroom with a tub and bidet on the second floor, or a shower and a bidet in a 3/4 bathroom on the first floor.
Relax in our large, comfortably furnished living room or our peacefully serene screened in front porch. Better yet, sit on our backyard patio and enjoy being surrounded by ponds, waterfalls, fish and a peaceful contemplative garden.
Akron has a rich history. Our home is conveniently located near many of our community’s cultural sites. We are one block from Dr. Bob's, the National Historic Home of Alcoholics Anonymous’ co-founder, where the 12 Steps program was conceived and written. Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens, a magnificent historic house museum and country estate completed in 1915 by the founder of The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. is 5 minutes away. If you enjoy baseball, the Akron Aeros play downtown - another five-minute drive. While you’re downtown, don’t miss the Akron Art Museum. It is one of our best-kept secrets.
Akron is a unique urban oasis. Our Metropolitan Park System is seamlessly integrated across our city where it joins the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, the last national park created in the United States, and connects us with Cleveland’s “Emerald Necklace”, their metropolitan park system. Cleveland’s many attractions (including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame) are just 45 minutes away by Interstate or an hour + leisurely drive through the metropolitan and national park scenic way.
For football fans, the National Football Hall of Fame is only a 30-minute drive south. Canton is also the site of the “First Ladies Museum”, as well as many other interesting historical and recreational opportunities.

Interaction with Guests
depending on the guests - we have had people we shared food and drinks with and others who are very busy while here in akron and we see very little.
Clean, respectful of property
No smoking allowed.
Quiet courtesy important - although in our century old home noise is almost non-existent from room to room on the 2nd floor
