In The Know

Here are a few things you can't miss when you visit...

  • Don't miss the classic cocktails and music at the Velvet Tango Room
  • Take a photo op at the five "Cleveland" signs around town
  • Be sure to try the humus at Taza Downtown
  • Don't miss the fresh food at the West Side Market
  • Visit the many breweries around the city and fill your "passport"


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 is steps from 28 independent artisan restaurants, 8 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!
