Bed & Breakfast - Private room · Franklin Blvd, Cleveland, OH 44102, United States

The Space

The Neighborhood:
Our home is in the wonderful Detroit Shoreway neighborhood on the near west side of Cleveland which hosts an arts district (two blocks away) with a movie theater, avant garde Cleveland Public Theater, art galleries, shops, a great coffee house (Gypsy Bean) and some of the best restaurants in the city (Luxe, Spice, and Latitude to name a few). The bike and pedestrian path leading to the lake and Edgewater Park (with a beach and marina) is about 4 blocks north of us. Wendy Park is a great place to enjoy the sunset at the lake with the Sunset Grill offering drinks and bar-type food. Also - our neighborhood has the most gardens on the city-wide Garden Walk and if you love gardens, I'd be happy to show you around some of my neighbors' amazing flower and vegetable gardens!

Our home:
We have a four bedroom home built in 1906 and it is is in the Franklin-West Clinton Historic District with lots of pretty homes around us. The living room has a wall of books for you to enjoy and the family room has french doors to a big back porch with an old fashioned glider to have breakfast on in the summer and enjoy a great view of the flowers, fruits and garden. Wi-fi available.

Our backyard is a miniature urban farm with fruit trees, berry bushes, a strawberry patch, vegetable garden, four chickens that give us fresh eggs every morning (spring through fall) flower gardens and outdoor art. Our yard is in the annual Cleveland Garden Walk - come visit June 22 and 23, 2013 and see 250+ gardens in 10 neighborhoods around the city!

Your room:
The guest room has a comfortable double bed and a futon sofa that folds out to sleep two more people. The room has a ceiling fan plus a room air conditioner for the summer. It is sunny and spacious.

In the morning, we will lay out everything you need to make yourself a great breakfast - or if you are an early riser, I will make it for you. You can have OJ, tea, french press coffee and fresh eggs from our four hens, cereal, toast, jam made by the "Detroit Shoreway canning guild" that I am in, plus whatever fruit may be in season.

It's a shared bathroom with us, with a shower and tub.

Downtown Cleveland is a quick bus ride, train ride or 5 minute drive away. University Circle is a 12 minute car ride to the east. The airport is a 15 minute drive west. We are within a 10 minute walk to the Rapid Transit train station which goes to all of the above places I've mentioned.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Bobbi's home is absolutely gorgeous, and she and her husband couldn't be more friendly and warm. It's in a good location for getting around Cleveland, and since we are animal lovers we were thrilled with the friendly cat and dog! We had to cut our stay short because of some unexpected travel, and are very sorry we did since we were having a great time at Bobbi's. We will absolutely stay there again in the future!

  • I'd slogged through a really tough 12 hours of travel, alone, tired, all my stuff packed tight into my Honda Civic for a cross-country move. When I arrived, Bobbi was there to give me a key, introduce me to her wonderful dog, Andrew, and then left me to unpack, eat, and chill out in peace. She let me park in the driveway, out behind the house, by a beautiful garden, and had breakfast for me in the morning. Loved it! Thank you, Bobbi!

  • Bobbi was definately the best air bnb host we have ever had!
    She was incredibly friendly and accommodating so much so she cooked us a delicious dinner and took us to and from the bus station.
    Her house is gorgeous and extremely comfortable. Our stay was made even better by her dog Andy and the cheeky cat Nomey.
    Even though we only stayed one night with Bobbi we felt like we were staying with family, so if you are ever in Cleveland we highly recommend you stay with Bobbi!

  • I cannot possibly say enough good things about my stay with Bobbi and Mark. I immediately felt welcome in their home which is filled with so much positive energy. They were very gracious and accommodating and I thoroughly enjoyed our conversations. They made my brief stay in Cleveland one I will never forget! Thank you!!!
