My husband and I stayed three nights at this wonderful B & B. We were greeted by Scott, the nicest young man, who is the inn keeper. Scott helped us bring our luggage to our room and gave us an introduction to the area. The house gave a feeling of being a home. We had a bedroom, a sitting area,... More

The location is great - it is in a very picturesque part of Cleveland with a ton of restaurants and near the fresh food market. If you have to get downtown, it would be about a half an hour walk (or under $10 for a cab). I would highly recommend as opposed to staying in a hotel downtown. In addition,... More

This Bed and Breakfast was just wonderful. Scott was just great, and his breakfasts are top of the line! The service and amenities were wonderful. The jacuzzi tub was to die for, and so were the amazing sheets on the bed. Stay here for a romantic weekend getaway. You will not be disappointed!

We had a great one-night stay in this beautiful old house. The innkeeper/host was very personable; he gave us a tour of the house and pointed out different sites in the neighborhood. Our room was very comfortable (luxurious sheets and terrific bathroom with Jacuzzi). Breakfast was super delicious. We'd stay there again.

My wife and I had planned on staying at the J. Palen House during a trip to Cleveland in the middle of the week in January. Within a couple of days of our planned arrival date, our daughter had a baby in Washington, DC, leading a two week postponement of the Cleveland trip. Unfortunately, while in Washington, I had a...

We arrived at Palen House after an afternoon of antique hunting in the area (at least 8 shops in the area-be forewarned that they don't open till noon on most days). Scott was so cordial and welcoming-even mentioning that he had just baked cupcakes for our snack! The house is stunningly beautiful! Antiques and oriental rugs everywhere. Whoever did the... More

My husband and I, along with another couple, went to Cleveland for a getaway weekend. Never having stayed at a B&B before, my husband and I were a bit hesitant but decided to give it a try. We were so pleasantly surprised. The house is in a lovely neighborhood with many restaurants and shops. It is within walking distance of... More
