R&R on steroids

This was the most well appointed b&b we have ever stayed in. Kathy thought of everything and then some. We would stay here again ! Close enough to Cleveland but far enough out if the city to be a quiet repose.

Great Berea Ohio B & B

5 on March 29, 2017

This B & B is definitely top notch. The wife and I have stayed in B & Bs from Alaska to Australia and places in between. This B & B rates a solid 10. This fully restored 19th century house has all of the comforts needed. We stayed 6 days/nights in the Riverside Gables Bed and Breakfast. Our room, the Hampton suite, was very warm and inviting. Wooden floors with heavy rugs , comfy bed, swing out flat screen TV made for a great nights sleep. The RGBB is centrally located to all the sites we visited. Great morning breakfasts adjusted to your individual taste cooked by the owner Cathrine. We will definitely stay at this B & B again when in the Cleveland area.

Beautiful B&B in Cleveland

My wife and I had a wonderful time at Riverside. The rooms are spacious and lovely, and the common area is great for mingling with other guests or having a glass of wine. Also, breakfast was amazing! Looking forward to rediscovering this gem down the road.

lovely place

My husband and I were very pleased with our experience at Riverside Gables. The house and room were lovely, spotless, and we appreciated the small things like beautiful decor, complimentary snacks and coffee in the common area with games etc. The food was delicious, and Catherine was very kind and accommodating. It made our night away from hectic daily life a refreshing delight. It was also nice to be so close to the Metropark where we spent a lot of the day hiking and enjoying lovely fall scenery, then a short drive into downtown for dinner. Great experience, will definitely be back!

Pampered and Will Definitely Return!

5 on March 29, 2013

If you want to be pampered for a night or two, this is the place to be. Catherine and Kevin provide a luxurious bed and breakfast to do just that. We were spoiled from the time we arrived until we left. Cathy asked us what foods we liked and included them in a beautifully prepared breakfast each morning in the formal dining room. One of our favorites was dessert at breakfast. We were served date nut muffins with a type of buttercream frosting! Yum, they were to die for! Cathy gave us some history of the house and answered our questions. She also gave us suggestions of places to visit and events we could go to in the area. The commons area on the second floor provided a wonderful place to relax with coffee, tea or any number of other beverages. There were also goodies left under a glass dome we could enjoy periodically through the day. There were books to read or games to play here as well. We were only fifteen minutes from home but it felt like we were far away on a wonderful get-away weekend. You won’t be disappointed staying in this gorgeous century home in Berea, Catherine and Kevin will make sure of that!

Signature Dish

Texture is lighter, with the use of whipped egg whites and the organic whole spelt flour makes this a healthier carb to enjoy! Seasonal local apples, Jonathan, honey crisp, granny smith, provide most of the sweetness, a touch of maple syrup and added walnuts for additional protein complements the dish!
