Close to downtown and transit lines leading to the airport, Univ. Circle, + Ohio City, my house is a convenient place to call home base in Cleveland. It's two blocks from Gordon Square Arts District which contains shops, restaurants, and theaters.
Your room is inviting, with a queen bed, a large window, and a ceiling fan. The living room has two couches and you'll have access to the television which has local tv stations, Hulu +, and Netflix. There is one shared bathroom, as well as a washer and dryer that are available for your use. My sizable front porch is wonderful for enjoying a day or evening relaxing and people watching.
Guests have access to most of the house: the private bedroom, kitchen, living room, dining room, shared bathroom, and front and back porches.
Interaction with Guests
I interact as much or as little as you like.
Check in is set at 6pm, because most likely I will be off work by then and can meet you. Check out is at 2pm. These times aren't set in stone, so if they don't work for you, just let me know. I'm flexible.
I am two blocks from the heart of the Gordon Square Arts District featuring the Capitol Movie Theater and Cleveland Public Theater. This node contains several boutique shops, a wonderful coffee shop (Gypsy Bean), and a great array of restaurants: Frank's Falafel, Happy Dog, Latitude 41, Luxe (great patio!), Rincon Criollo (a delightful Cuban restaurant), Spice, Toast, and XYZ (American fare). Don't forget to get a fountain soda or ice cream from Sweet Moses.
The house is a 10-15 minute walk to Edgewater Park, on Lake Erie, which includes a beach, pier, and a bluff with amazing views of the lake and the city. I am about a 15 minute walk to W. 25th St. in Ohio City, where you'll find Great Lakes Brewery and the West Side Market, among other great Cleveland eateries and shops.
The house is a 10 minute walk from the RTA Rapid Redline Train W. 65th/Lorain Station which connects you to Ohio City, Downtown, University Circle, Lakewood, and Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport. Bus lines 26 and 45 each have stops a few blocks away. I'm a 2 mile walk, bike, or drive to downtown. The Tremont neighborhood is also nearby.
Other Things to Note
Nearby vegetarian friendly restaurants include the Flying Fig, Banana Blossom, Johnny Mangoes, Momocho, Ty Fun Thai Bistro, La Bodega, and Istanbul Grill.
I'm pretty laid back. I ask that you don't let the cat out (he will try!) Though I say "no smoking," that is only inside. There are two covered porches where you can smoke. I also ask that guests aren't loud after 12am, especially during week nights.
An excellent room in a great location. Jim is very helpful for information for the happenings around Cleveland. A wonderful experience.
Jim was an awesome host, very knowledgeable about the city of Cleveland, great guy and the kitty was really friendly as well, thanks again Jim!
Jim is great! Super friendly, has lots of advise for exploring the area, and made sure we were comfortable settling in. The location also couldn't be better. If ever we're back in Cleveland, we'll b essaying with Jim again!
My boyfriend and I stayed with Jim this past weekend and had a lovely experience. Jim's place is very clean, comfortable and inviting. Jim is super friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Jim's cat Charmin is just as friendly, he even took a nap with us! Gordon Square is an adorable neighborhood, we highly recommend The Happy Dog! We would absolutely stay with Jim again :)
Jim is an excellent communicator and host that ensured our arrival was smooth and uneventful. We appreciated the clean accommodations, coffee and fruit in the morning, off street parking and his friendly personality.
I am just finishing a 3 day cozy stay at Jim's place. It's close to things I like in Cleveland and his cat has been really great company. I'd recommend the house to anyone who wants a comfortable spot within walking distance from cafes, restaurants, and an independent movie theater.

Hi, I'm Jim. I enjoy urban life, running, volleyball, reading, coffee, and ice cream. I'm a proud Clevelander and am always looking for new ways to discover my city.
I enjoy hosting Air BNB because I love meeting new people and learning about their experiences. I pay good attention to the happenings around Cleveland, so I'll be able to give you suggestions on what to do and where to dine!
I also love to travel. Typically I don't stray too far from home, but do visit nearby cities often.
