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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
