About the Neighborhood
Friendly street and neighbors in a transitioning neighborhood. Only blocks from beautiful stately homes on Jefferson and Dorchester. Great neighborhood for walking with lots of established trees to provide shade along the sidewalks. This home is very close to shopping, great restaurants, bars, The Highland movie theatre, and Downtown Akron. Hospitals and University of Akron are within minutes. Stan Hywet, John Brown House, Akron Children's Museum are very close and it's a 45 minute drive to Cleveland activities. The Mustard Seed, boutique health food grocery store and restaurant is minutes away and a delicious place to stop for lunch! We include a Welcome Binder upon check-in that shares all of our favorite local spots as well as hiking trails nearby and recommendations on fun activities for all ages.
Getting Around in Akron
Uber is fast and reliable in this area. DoorDash and UberEats are a super simple way to have food delivered to the door. If you have your own vehicle, there is parking in the driveway or on the street. Please be mindful that the driveway is a shared driveway with our neighbors. Please ensure you do not block access to their side.
Additional Notes Regarding Your Stay:
Our home can comfortably accommodate up to 8 guests (we have 4 bedrooms with one queen size bed in each room).

-No additional guests are permitted during your stay other than who is disclosed in your reservation.
-Parking is in the driveway or on the street. Two cars can fit into the driveway if one pulls in closest to the garage. This home has a shared driveway with our next-door neighbors so please do not park on their side of the driveway.

- We are happy to allow you an earlier arrival or later departure IF it is available that day, although I will not know until 24 hours beforehand. However, if you would like to guarantee an earlier arrival or later departure then there is a fee required to block off the additional time and/or increase the size of the cleaning crew in order to accomodate.
