Ohio City is a great place to live and visit! Other than times away for continued education, I have lived here since 1978. What a transformation witnessed over these 36 years. It has gone from a run down, crime infested environment, to an exciting mixture of cultures, venues, and experiences.
W. 25th St. and Lorain Ave. were once full of closed boarded up buildings where the average person would not venture to walk after dark. Today they are a constant motion of activity; restaurants, West Side Market, free concerts at Market Square, coffee shops, breweries, athletics at St. Ignatius High School, retail shops!
Scattered throughout our community are bike paths, urban gardens, and unique shops, like glass blowing at the "Bubble," personalized monogram bats from "Johnnyville Slugger," and micro breweries, where you'll find the finest brew ever!
Come and experience renovated landmark homes, eclectic coffee shops, museums, libraries, historical churches, Lake Erie, Edgewater Park, golfing at one of the Metro Park golf courses, the beautiful Cuyahoga River, Downtown Cleveland, Horseshoe Casino, the Indians and Browns stadiums, the Cavaliers Arena, Tower City Mall, and so much more.
On-site garage parking is available with your stay for an extra fee. Access to downtown by car is extremely easy and fast, with plenty of parking for all the various venues in Cleveland. Taxis are available and dependable, and bus routes run regularly to downtown Public Square and beyond.
The Rapid Transit rail system has a stop conveniently located a short walk away (W. 25th St. and Lorain Ave, by the West Side Market) with stops at Cleveland Hopkins Airport (CLE) and downtown Tower City.
Cleveland has become a very bike friendly city with marked bike lanes for safe riding. So be sure to bring your bikes! it is a great way to tour the city. Most everything is accessible by bike, and if it's too far away, bikes are permitted on public transportation (bicycle rentals are available from local bike shops and rental stations nearby).

We have a folder listing many of the venues located around Cleveland for guests to visit, as well as a listing of links to various places to visit on the computer.
There are still various projects that are on-going in and around the building, but I will always keep my guests' comfort in mind when there are times when my projects include the use of loud equipment.
We encourage our guests to enjoy their stay with us, but please respect the carpet and furnishings in the suite. Also, since this is an urban environment, if you use the outdoor fire pit, respect our neighbors by keeping the noise level down after 10pm.
We do NOT permit pets. If it is absolutely necessary for you to bring your pet, we can discuss it in advance. If you're permitted in bringing your pet, I will have to add an extra charge of $50 to cover the extra cleaning.

About the Host, Don
My wife, Julie, and I enjoy a good movie, having coffee together at some of the local restaurants, bike riding, or pleasant road runs through the neighborhood. I also enjoy pole vaulting, high jumping and competing in 10k events.
I've lived in this community since 1978 and have actively participated in its transformation as a historical district.
I love to design...especially the renovation and re-purposing of urban buildings; which brings me to our building. Our home is a 12000sf warehouse located in the historic Ohio City district of Cleveland, OH. It is quite unique in the fact that it's, first of all, a large warehouse-type structure (West Side Carpet Cleaning Co.) sitting in a residential neighborhood. Secondly, there is no other space like it in Ohio City... and it's probably the only place in Ohio City with its own private indoor driving range!
It's unique features have made it popular for various media venues; wedding photography, interview settings, and major network filming.
