The Space

Experience the charm of a Victorian home with the convenience of modern stainless steel appliances. This is a fun place to stay and the walk-able neighborhood is very artsy with unique restaurants Melt ( seen on the food channel) The Rush Inn had great mussels the last time we were there. People walk their dogs, ride bikes, and jog 24/7 here.
Farm to table restaurants like Forage are sure to please you. If you like Mexican food, you can walk to Cozumels. Fun atmosphere and great food.

A TV on each floor. 1st Fl Living room has a 40 inch flat screen LED SMART TV. This means you can use your Amazon Prime and also use Cable as well as Roku.

Need a large house or two for Republican National Convention in 2016? We are RNC ready and have a second house next door that also has 5 bedrooms. Perfect for a large group who want to stay with each other. Take our street east and you will be in downtown Cleveland in minutes.

Sailors fr Toronto at nearby yacht club on Lake Erie said they really enjoyed cooking in the kitchen. Most guests also enjoy lounging around the front porch in the evenings...we hope you will too.

We've hosted University Hosp, Metro, and Cleveland clinic interns and other doctors, it's an easy drive to Cleve clinic with very little traffic.

The architecture of this renovated 3 story Victorian home with original Slate Roof, turrets, bay windows, hardwood floors with fruitwood and mahogany inlaid strips is lovely.

$3k per mos for two mos or less includes utilities.
$2200/mos for short term plus utilities for 3 mos or less.
$1800/mos if rented long term min. 6 mos. Utilities not included. You will pay for whatever utilities you consume. Electric, Gas, Water, and Cable.

Built in 1900 by and sold to the Hungers in 1907. They lived in and loved this beauty for 50 years until it was sold again. Signed Tiffany light fixtures graced the dining room with it's arches and built in leaded glass china cabinet until owners in the 70's traded them for an oriental carpet.

Italian Tile makes a statement in the large sunny eat in kitchen with a gas stove, Side by side stainless steel fridge, and dishwasher.
With 11 ft cove ceilings, pantry, plate rails, and gorgeous era ceiling fans...you know you are staying somewhere special.

Relax in the large living room with a Steinway Upright Baby Grand Piano circa 1911 and a double mantled mirrored fireplace with tiger oak Corinthian Columns.

Parking for 1-2 cars in the driveway depending on how much of the house you are renting. (Two spaces just outside the side door) It's a shared driveway so we need you to use the two assigned parking spaces. Plenty of street parking in front of the house on the tree lined Boulevard.

A lovely front porch and back deck with a pond away you for relaxation. Just a short walk to Lake Erie and a bike ride to the Rocky River Valley where the Emerald Necklace Park System gives you 100 miles of tree lined bike and running paths to spread your legs and wings.

Walk to the brand new YWCA and work out, or to any of Lakewood's adorable shoppes and restaurants. Famed restaurant: Melt's is only one mile away.

There are 2 full baths and one half bath. Our 1st floor half bath is just off the kitchen.
Laundry facilities and most everything you need to live comfortably for a short or longer term. Take the public bus ( the 55) to downtown Cleveland and visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Visit the brand new casino and experience, Terminal Tower and all of it's treasures.

The 2nd floor hall bath has been recently remodeled and updated yet kept in keeping with an amazing Slipper shaped claw foot tub, granite topped sink and new tile floor. The original white curare 1920's glass tiles have been re-secured and grouted.

The master bedroom has vintage (period) wall paper by Bradbury and Bradbury, a romantic fireplace mantel and a bay window. Large 4x6 ft closets will fit anything you bring with you.

The 3rd floor suite is 900 sq ft with 3 large skylights -3 rooms: Two bedrooms and a living room with TV and Roku.
NOTE: This is a very large 115 yr old home and NOT a brand new constructed home. Don't expect it to be perfect though it has been upgraded in many ways. It's fun and quirky but nostalgic. It's our family home and we love it's perfect imperfections. The stairs used to make interesting noises when you walked up them but we recently opened up the lathe & plaster to look for hidden treasures and we had a master craftsman restore the stairs. This is not a fancy B&B but rather a spacious family home with a HUGE amount of space. We have furnished it with antiques and comfortable furniture.

At $198 per night we feel it's a bargain compared to nearby hotels that are 200 sq ft with no kitchen, a yard, deck and front porch to enjoy. We keep on restoring different areas of this home-it's an ongoing project and will update photos as we go. We'd like your expectations to be appropriate for this wonderful home. It's beautiful and well worth the nightly rate with 4 bedrooms but if you want extra swanky...look for a $400/nite place.

There are 2 baths. The first floor has a convenient half bath off of the kitchen.
The 2nd floor has a brand new $2200 claw foot slipper tub with platinum feet, new toilet, new tile floor, granite topped sink, and it is really lovely.
The 2nd bathroom/claw ft tub with shower over it is located in the laundry room. It is a cast iron claw ft tub that is original to the house and the laundry room is located in the basement with high ceilings. It's very rustic but has it's own charm. The new toilet, *we couldn't save the 114 yr old push button toilet" is in a separate water closet inside the laundry room area. We were able to keep the 115 yr old sink.

AIR CONDITIONING: We have two window units and the master bedroom one is has two remotes. With lake breezes, lots of windows and ceiling fans you should be comfortable.

HISTORY:The Hunger Brass Company Family:
bought this luxury house from the bankrupt builder in 1907 for $1100.00 The deed says that it was "more" than the appraised value.
They lived here and raised their families in both sides of the duplex until 1957. The Hunger's donated the doors and stained glass windows to a near by church. Their foundry was responsible for the brass railings in historic Terminal Tower and all of the downtown Historic Theatres.

We've included some photos here of the family having dinner in the dining room when it actually had signed Tiffany fixtures. Imagine if you will times gone by on this fashionable tree-lined street with cable cars whizzing past only minutes from the casino in downtown Cleveland, the Browns Stadium, the Rock and Rock Hall of (website hidden): We have 2 TV's and Dish TV.

Guest Access

There are three floors and a basement with a total of 5 bedrooms and 6 beds. If you only need one bedroom or just need less than 3, we can give you a different price. If you want to book just the 3rd fl bedroom we can quote you that price as well. All options give you access to the the kitchen, living room, dining room and basement laundry area.
There are two full bathrooms and one half bath. One on the second floor and the other in the laundry room. The first floor half bath is outside the back door of the house in the mud room porch. This is considered common space as is the deck and yard. You share this with the owner. The mud room is just outside of the kitchen and is a very convenient first floor half bath.
Parking: There are one to two off street parking spaces for your (website hidden)'s: Dish TV, Roku, and one TV for each floor. First floor has a 40 inch flat screen Smart TV.

Interaction with Guests

We have two to three staff members who attend to the house. They are available if you need them for something. It is best to text the owner first so she can assign someone to attend to yourneeds.

If you are only booking 3 rooms instead of five the owner may also be on site. If you book the entire house the owner maybe staying in the carriage house above the garage. When the owner is on-site or in the carriage house, the basement laundry and bathroom will be considered common space. She will enter from the side door and go downstairs. She will never have to enter your living area. Your privacy is assured. You will find her easy going and very hospitable. She knows all the area restaurants so feel free to ask for referrals. The owner is a well known book author and professional harpist. You may hear harp music flowing out from the Carriage House where she rehearses for performances.

Sometimes she is sometimes available to take you out to eat and likes to surprise her guests with bonuses. Pizza or fresh baked cake. If you desire she will let you know about "IN" local events.

Enjoy your stay.

The Neighborhood

Lakewood is close to the best of Cleveland. It's ALL-American and easy access to downtown Cleveland, Lake Erie, Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.
This is a five sq mile city right next to Cleveland and you can be downtown in a flash.

It's a safe neighborhood with health food markets, art galleries, and all kinds of niche restaurants. Make sure you get to United Dairy Farmers for a quart of their Chocolate Cherry Cordial ice-cream. It's some of the best ice-cream in the state.

Getting Around

The Cleveland Hopkins airport is an easy 10 to 12 minute drive down Rocky River Rd.

If you wish to use public transport once at the house. to go to downtown Cleveland or other parts of Lakewood. Take the 55 Express Bus (bus stop is one short block away.) to get to the center of downtown Cleveland, Cleveland State University, or the East Side Museums. On your return the well lit and covered bus stop is on the opposite side of the street just across from the house. See the website for the regional transport system. (website hidden)

Other Things to Note

TV: We have Dish TV. There is WIFI through Cox Cable. One of the TV's has a dvd player. There is a TV on the first floor living room (40 inch flat screen Smart TV). 2nd fl master bedroom. And a tv on the 3rd floor with Roku. The wifi pw is located on the back of the modem under the TV on the first floor.

Please please call us or text if something doesn't appear to work. The dining room chandelier is on a dual push button switch-If you push the wrong button on the 2nd fl to operate the chandelier, the 1st fl button won't operate the chandelier. We had guests who thought the chandelier wasn't working when it was just the dual switches. We now remind everyone that the cure is simply pushing the 2nd fl button again.

In the winter, we provide an oil filled heater for the 1st fl half bath. THIS MUST stay in that bathroom to keep it warm and prevent pipes from freezing.

Workout: There is a pool and work out facilities at the Lakewood YMCA. It is a brand new building. We highly recommend it for workouts. You can easily walk to the Y from our location. There are drop in classes that you can participate in such as cycling, power sculpt, Zoomba, Flexible Core. If you are a member of the Y in your city, you can take up to 4 classes per mos free, otherwise they are $10/class.
