The Space


I'm offering up a master bedroom with a queen-sized Ikea Sultan bed with a futon-style mattress and two closets. I have a beautiful Sears kit home in the middle of Lyndhurst. It was one of the first houses on the block and was built by one of the founders of the city. It is five minutes away (by car) from Progressive Insurance, seven minutes from I-271, ten minutes from I-90 15 minutes from Little Italy and has easy street access to any of the the eastern suburbs.

I'm within three blocks of the Richmond mall, a supermarket, Mexican and Indian restaurants, banks, FedEx/Kinko's, a library, dry cleaners and a few salons.

There's a giant back yard, garage parking, a kitchen, a living room, a dining room, a library, a spacious basement and a laundry room. In the summer I have a two porches, a picnic area, several grills and a fire pit. If you have more than two people coming, there's an extra futon for more guests. Secure wireless internet, laundry, etc.

On weekends I often cook breakfast for everyone, and I make frequent trips to Amish Country on Saturdays. If you're around, you're welcome to join me!

While I am not a friend of Dorothy, I'm a friend of her friends. No discrimination.

On weekdays through June, one of my other rooms is rented to a consultant; he is very quiet and, when he is home, he is usually asleep. He is only in a few nights a week. Starting in July, I will have a full-time roommate in that room, but he will also almost never be home.

Oh, and seriously. Dogs welcome. I love them.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • What a wonderful experience! I know I am only adding to a long string of other people's superlative reviews, but I must chime in. Andrew was responsive, informative, welcoming, and helpful all the way from first contact until my most recent one, when he called me back almost immediately while he was out of town because I needed help figuring out how to use the lockbox. His last words to me were, "and call back anytime if you have more questions." The space itself was heavenly, quiet with all the conveniences, utterly safe, within easy distance of main roads but without any road noise. I relished drinking coffee in the backyard under the big trees and watching a doe with her young ones gamboling. Comfy bed, great shower, kitchen ready for my needs. Would return in a heartbeat.

  • Andrew was super accommodating to our late arrival. After a very long day on the road, Andrew's home was such a lovely place to rest our weary bones! The house itself is charming and peaceful, and the bed and room are very comfortable. We would definitely recommend staying here. If only we could have stayed longer!

  • Andrew was awesome! My boyfriend and I happened to be staying while he was having a rye- sampling party, and he introduced us to his friends and made us feel at home. The bed was super comfortable and the breakfast delicious! It was a real pleasure.

  • Andrew is an excellent person. He made us feel at home and we enjoyed our stay. The neighborhood is quiet, yet within easy driving distance of Cleveland's places of interest.

    June 2014
  • The place is very nice and highly recommended to young friends. Andrew is very friendly and helpful in every way. The room is very comfortable and the bathroom is clean. Also, it is a lovely neighborhood and very close to the university cycle.

I do a lot of stuff, but my favorite things to do are read and write and travel and have adventures. On any given night I'm writing, running errands, swimming, sailing, break dancing, taking care of my vegetable garden, sailing, cooking, ballroom dancing (tango, salsa and swing), organizing parties, training, cooking or reading. I also like Amish stuff and dogs.
