We recently visited Cleveland and it was our first time there. We were very pleasantly surprised by the city. We stayed at the STONE GABLES Bed and Breakfast at 3806 Franklin Blvd. Richard and Jim are great hosts.
They have owned the B and B for several years and really know what their guests want and how to treat their guests. The house is a stone mansion that has been completely restored and each guest room has it’s own distinct decor. They have a very nice breakfast each morning in the dining room.
They have fenced off-street parking for their guests. Wi-Fi is located throughout the entire house. Each guest room has it’s own private bath. They are conveniently located just a few blocks from Lake Erie and transportation to everywhere in the city. They are located in the old Ohio City historic center in west Cleveland.
Cleveland’s famous Market Center is within walking distance plus many restaurants and shops They are about a mile from downtown Cleveland. We highly suggest this Bed and Breakfast. Their toll free number is 877.215.4326 and their website is www.stonegables.net and email them at [email protected]
Cleveland’s downtown is a very dynamic place. They really have it together downtown. We were quite impressed with it. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is right downtown and it truly is amazing. Even if you are not into Rock and Roll, this is a MUST SEE museum, www.rockhall.com
Another museum we took in was the house for the movie, A CHRISTMAS STORY movie, www.achristmasstoryhouse.com It brought back a lot of memories the movie of course is a classic. For a smaller museum they have done it extremely professional. Their staff is very friendly.
