About this listing
Easy twenty minute drive to downtown. Comfortable and safe suburb of Cleveland close to many area attractions. Private bedroom/sitting room/private full bath. Ample off street parking.
Ideal location in the quiet and safe suburb of Westlake. Close to I-90, I-480, not far from Ohio Turnpike (I-80) near many restaurants, I try to give guests some of luxuries you'd expect from a first class hotel yet the personal touch of a B&B. Perfectly situated if traveling across the top of the country (i.e. from NY to Chicago, Michigan, etc.), 20 minutes to city center, all ball parks, CSU, 10 minutes to IX Center. Park like setting in backyard with seasonal use of charcoal/gas grill. A clean, comfortable private queen size bedroom and private full bath, also a private sitting room next to bedroom with 40" TV with Netflix and a DVD player, local channels over the air (I got disgusted with cable and dropped it). A comfortable sofa and mini-fridge creates a suite all to yourself. All areas are meticulously cleaned after every guest regardless of their length of stay. Check out my guidebook for a sampling of sights, hiking trails, etc.
168 s. feet, clean, comfy, natural light, in front of house for privacy, nice newly tiled full private bath with tub and shower, hairdryer, bubble bath, etc.
Ping pong table in basement you are free to use. Garage for your vehicle if you'd like and there is a big enough driveway for a trailer, RV, etc.

You MUST stay here with Scott and Mona!!! Having worked in high end hotels, they were able to incorporate the best of the amenities while maintaining the comfortable home feel. They were very personable and professional. I can't wait for my next stay!!
Scott was very attentive and helpful which made our stay enjoyable. Everything was as advertised and work out great for us before our visit to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We enjoyed chatting with he and his wife in the beautiful back yard.
Scott and Mona are very kind and thoughtful hosts. Half of the upstairs has been set aside as a guest suite and it's private, comfortable and spacious. Scott provides a way for guests to come and go at will. The dog, Lily, has the run of the house and we enjoyed having a dog around. We had breakfast on the deck of the large back yard in his residential neighborhood. Lots of birds and squirrels were in the trees and we found our outside breakfast a lovely way to start the day. Highly recommend it and will return.
We were in communication with Scott as we would be late arriving. He suggested places we could get a late supper and called a few to check on hours. When we arrived he explained everything thoroughly.
Scott and Mona were awesome. 5 are shower welcoming people and make you feel right at home in their house. The room was great and having your bathroom and tv room allows you space to chill without feeling like you're in the way. Definitely recommend them.
Scott went out of his way to welcome us and explain our accommodations. Everything written by other reviewers was accurate. The deck and back yard were very appealing. Scott and Mona are well travelled so it was enjoyable to visit with them during our breakfast.
We absolutely enjoyed staying with Scott and Mona. They were very welcoming and could not have been better hosts. The bedroom came with a guest lounge and was very comfortable. Mona's home baking was a wonderful addition to our breakfasts, and their back deck under the trees, a delightful place to enjoy eating.
The area in which they live is very easy to access from the I 90, is close to shopping centres, a five minute easy drive to the lake, and easy to find when driving the 10-15 minutes from the car rental centre at the airport. This has been one of the best airbnbs we have stayed at and would highly recommend it to others needing a quiet, central point to travel in this area, easy-to-access place to stay.
About the Host, Scott
I lived in China for 3 years (that's where I met my wife). We have traveled to over 40 countries and enjoy sharing our travel experiences and hearing about your adventures. We love hiking (we can tell you the best places), gardening, ping pong, and cooking foods of various cultures. We go to China regularly to visit my wife's family and can give you specific travel tips for anywhere in that country. My wife is also a native Chinese speaker so you can practice if you like, We think Iceland is the most naturally beautiful place on earth and particularly liked Greece, Thailand and Spain.
