This is a small room with a twin bed, nightstand, dresser, bookcase and closet. It's just enough for one. Many busy people have stayed here at length. But if you just need a spot to sleep in Cleveland, this might just suit you. Bathroom is shared.

The space

It's an old arts and crafts home - four bedrooms on the second floor - three of them share a bath, the other is a private suite.

The house is a home. It's been ours since 1989. Now retired, I live here with housemates and the pooch, Annie Belle. She sounds ferocious, but she's sweet once she gets to know you.

I smoke and you can, too, just please don't burn anything.

Since photos seem to flow together, you might be able to see the other rooms. Let me know if you'd prefer to stay in another, and I'll see if I can help.

The neighborhood is walkable _ Cedar Lee and Coventry districts are close at hand. We're close to CWRU, UH, the Clinic and University Circle - the cultural hub.

Before this listing, the last person to occupy this room stayed 4 years. I guess she was pretty comfortable there.

Guest access

You will have a cupboard in the pantry, a spot in the fridge, access to the common areas (kitchen, dining and living rooms) and the laundry. Oh and in spring-fall, the porch and the backyard - picnic table, grape arbor, gardens.

Interaction with guests

We're quiet and respectful of each other and guests. Share as much or as little as you like while here. If you're here for an extended stay, we hope to get to know you.

House Rules
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
Not safe or suitable for children (0-12 years)

Guests are expected to behave courteously to others in the house, respectfully as regards the furnishings and appliances. In the house, we conserve energy and water. Hence we ask that you unplug electronic devices that may use vampire energy such as chargers and televisions (anything with a micro-controller built into it) when they are not in use.

If you are in need of something and wonder if I have it on hand, please ask. If something seems to not be responding normally, or if something breaks, please ask or inform me immediately.

Please handle my home with care. Keeping your items tidy will help you to be sure that they are with you when you leave, and it will also help to insure that damages to the property are not incurred by accident.

Annie is a watchdog, and she will most likely alert when you arrive. If you will stay for longer than a day or two, or you will come and go, making friends with her will cause less disruption. It isn't precisely "love me, love my dog," but so as to not be treated as an intruder each time you arrive, it's best to spend a bit of time getting to know her. That does not involve petting her on arrival. She wants her space, and she'll let you know it if you get too friendly too fast. We value her watchdogness, but we also wish to respect others' rest.

For longer term guests, I am not the maid service. I ask that you launder the sheets and wash towels during your stay and keep the rooms you use clean.

Please do not have mail sent to you at our address without discussing it with me first.

Staying at the Treehouse with Susan and Annie was perfect for a short business jaunt with a local's touch. Located in a quite neighbourhood nearby University Circle, Susan's home is full of art and history. Susan will welcome you with genuine conversation and recommendations that you're unlikely find in a hotel. You'll stay with a diverse family of respectful working professionals who respect your space and shared spaces. Go home knowing you've connected to Cleveland's heart.

I had a wonderful stay in Susan's home. I felt very comfortable and welcome. She is a very kind host, a wealth of information and willing to help with anything I needed. Her home is unique and very warm. I'll definitely stay again when I'm in Cleveland.

I stayed at Susan's place for a month, during an observership program at Cleveland Clinic. I really enjoyed my stay, Susan is a great host. She is very helpful, knows a LOT about Cleveland and is pretty much an expert on anything. The transportation to and from the clinic was relatively easy with a single bus and just a little bit of walking, also the house is close to many nice places near Cleveland Heights. The talks with Susan is priceless and the house is just as you would expect. I thank Susan very much for the stay, and hope that my fellow travelers can get a chance to stay here as well :)

I enjoyed staying at Susan's. It was such an excellent way to get to know Cleveland and a bright, safe, and tranquil place to stay.

An amazing option for anyone who wants to have an incredible time in Cleveland. Susan is incredible, from the way she receives you and the General ambiance she creates. Incredible person that will make you feel just like home and will help you out understanding how everything works and how to get around the city when first arriving. Spot within walking distance of grocery stores and vast amount of restaurants of all types that are quite affordable. Close to public transit stops and very easy to get around. Susan has great recommendations on sites to see around the city and preserved havens. If anyone is having second thoughts on whether or not this choice is good for them I would definitely say go for it! I am incredibly happy that I got to be with such an amazing person and host for my first AirBnB experience.

I am retired from the arts world (modern dance) and enjoy gardening and activism. Mostly I enjoy continuing to learn, my son and my friends.

I'm not a big traveler. I like my "Howard's End" here in the Heights of the rustbelt. It has a rich history. I love hosting folks and learning from guests.

I'm engaged in my neighborhood, an historic district, but with a "city repair" bent; sharing assets, skills, time, gardens. I'm fascinated by permaculture, and I'm forever working on how to make this little plot a food forest. I garden on my yard, my neighbor's yard and at a vacant house across the street. I'm learning.

I've been known to circulate initiative and referendum petitions, fight city hall and just say "no thanks" to bad ideas that arise in our culture locally and globally. I study monetary policy and theory when I'm not gardening or organizing with neighbors and friends.

I enjoy British drama and the classics and documentaries.

I appreciate history, coffee, beer, dogs (cats, too) and the natural world. I'm shrinking my carbon foot print as best I can in this old family home. I chose it in 1989 and still choose it today.
