About this listing
Your room has a king sized bed, a TV w/ Amazon Prime, Netflix & Hulu. Centrally located to everything here. Downtown Lakewood (10 minute walk); the Metropark (100 miles of bike path!!!). Downtown Cleveland 10 minute drive.
This is a great space with lovely morning light. The room itself is cozy with a king sized bed and has a small walk in closet and a dresser. It is on the 2nd floor right next to the bathroom. There is TV, wireless internet and Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu and more. The king sized mattress conforms to your body and is very comfortable. Sleep 2 (or 3 if one of them is a little person) here. We have an 9 year old son so we are family friendly. Our home is an art gallery on one side and we live on the other. Art is everywhere in our home. Its eclectic and unusual but most people love it and want to stay again and again. In addition, I have over 30 years experience cooking in restaurants all over the east coast. If you want to stay in and have me cook you a special dinner here in our dining room, I love to do that. The price fluctuates according to the menu.
Guests have access to everything except the other bedrooms and my china cabinet.
Interaction with Guests
We will be around the house and in the yard but wont interfere with your privacy unless you want to come outside and sit in the back yard; or on the front or back porch or lay in the hammock. Yes, we are here when our guests are here.
This is one of the best neighborhoods in the US. It is a super safe, walk friendly, bike friendly place. There are a ton of bars and restaurants in our little city and grocery shopping and antiquing are right around the corner. The YMCA is 2 blocks down with an indoor pool if you're a member or you can go to the outdoor Lakewood Pools for a daily rate. There are several play parks in the neighborhood as well as entrances to the Metroparks less than a mile from the house. If you are coming to Cleveland you have to experience the Metroparks. Its over 100 miles of bike path that winds through forests and parks all connected that circle the city and continue south down the Erie Canal. 45 minutes from here is Cedar Point and The Islands with wineries and beaches and boating. We also have boating right here down in the Rocky River Marina or at the Edgewater Yacht club. Visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, take in a sporting event at one of the arenas or visit a comedy club downtown and try your luck at the Horseshoe Casino. Tour the Cleveland Art Museum, or the Natural History Museum or take a tour on Lolly the Trolley. You can enjoy a dinner cruise on Lake Erie and then take in a show at Playhouse Square. There is a ton of fun things to do here!
You can walk, bike or taxi (Westlake Cab - 5$ anywhere in Lakewood). If you want to take the bus, it stops right outside of the store next to our house. Busses and RTA Transit can take you anywhere you want to go in the city and greater metropolitan area.
Other Things to Note
Parking is on street in front of the house but the road widens in front of our home so we've never had any issues with car damage. Plus, this is a really nice street and mostly people go slow around here. We have a dog but she has manners. The little one will bark when she first meets you but won't after that; we groom and bath her often and I vacuum and shampoo the carpets and furniture frequently so there is no "dog" smell in the house and there's not a lot of hair flying around either as I can't stand it.
No loud music or rough-housing; no drugs and no alcoholics (practicing). Smoking is outside only. Please leave common areas in the same shape they were in when you found them. Only our personal bedrooms and my china cabinet are off limits The rest of the house is yours to share. I love to host people and have had roommates my whole life. A lot of the people who have roomed with me are still my very close friends.
