The space

I've improved this circa-1915 house over the past seven years, and it's now homey, comfortable, and in great shape for guests. The home is located on a large, fenced lot in town with a front yard, back parking area, and (untended) back yard beyond.

Because I live here occasionally, some of my personal effects (such as books) will be left out. You're welcome to enjoy them -- just please return them where they were. Same goes for snacks, condiments, etc..

Tom was able to accommodate me with no notice, and everything exceeded my expectations. Great, hip house with two cool home theater systems, a nice yard, and relaxing front porch, a block from the Allen Museum, in lovely downtown Oberlin. A great place to stay, visiting Cleveland…

Great place if you're looking for something in the area. We travelled to cedar point from there and it wasn't a bad drive, about 45 minutes. Lots of space for guests and the snacks were a nice touch!

The house is great! There were snacks galore and it's very spacious. We had no problems and the location is perfect to the university and main street for all of the stores. The street is quiet too!

I grew up in suburban New York, went to college in Ohio, then moved to San Francisco for most of my adult life. I bought my house in Oberlin in 2009 and lived there until 2016, when I moved again to The Netherlands. I travel a lot, both for work and pleasure.
