Get Directions

Our historic Ohio bed and breakfast was originally designed and built for a doctor. One year later it was sold to a Brewmeister. The tunnel to the brick lined brew caves has collapsed, but an outdoor sculpture utilizes artifacts found in the tunnel. The inn has been lovingly updated and features spacious comfortable rooms with delightful amenities and luxury baths. Some rooms and suites feature two person spa baths, fireplaces, private outdoor patios or balconies and private entrances. Our private residences include living space and kitchens for longer stays or to enjoy with friends or family.

The Inn is steps from 25 artisan restaurants, 5 micro-breweries, 2 craft cocktail lounges and the historic fresh food West Side Market. The Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame, Playhouse Square, all Sports Arenas, Cleveland Medical Mart, Convention Center and Cleveland Clinic are across the Cuyahoga River, just minutes away. The Cleveland Museum of Art, Symphony, Natural History Museum and Botanical Gardens are fifteen minutes away. Twelve miles from Cleveland Hopkins airport and one half mile from every major highway makes arriving convenient by car, plane or public transportation. Convenient for Business and perfect for Romance. Become a resident of our nationally recognized historic district....if even for an evening!
