Home away from home

I have been staying at Parkers Guesthouse every month for the past 18 months. I have felt I was at home from beginning. The hospitality of Mr. Parker is unbeatable. The home is clean, comfortable and safe. I feel at home here and look forward to my weekend stay every month. If you want a place that makes you feel at home you need to stay here. Mr. Parker is wonderful.

A Feeling..... The Harlem Renaissance

As soon as I walked into the foyer, I was greeted by Paintings, Sculptures, Drawings, Antiques, Bookcases and Fireplaces......The Essence of The African Diaspora Was All Around Me.... as I toured each guest room.... I was reminded of the Harlem renaissance.....Parker's Guest House... an Urban Bed and Breakfast......

My first Bed & Breakfast

I came with a little trepidation, not knowing what to expect. Upon arrival my wife questioned if we had made a good decision. Ed Parker is the owner / Innkeeper. Ed is an accomplished artist and retired professor of Art. Ed Parker is a charming and sincere gentleman. He was extremely accommodating far above our expectations. HE TOOK US TO MY EARLY MORNING APPOINTMENT AT THE CLEAVELAND CLINIC ! James Atwell, Louisville, KY

Great location for visiting University Circle area

Mr. Parker is a charming and gracious host - offering us good suggestions about where to eat for lunch and dinner and cooking a substantial breakfast for us. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. We found the Parker Guest House a perfect place for our visit to the Cleveland Museum of Art and a Cleveland Orchestra concert. The Healthline bus stops within a block of the property and close to University Circle.

Amazing, Relaxing, Peaceful, Comfortable Retreat

Walking into Parker's Guest House was like walking into your favorite relative's house, who spoiled you as a kid. Mr. Parker is welcoming and caring; he's an amazing artist, person, and cook!

Neat Old House

The vintage home is comfortable, but what made the stay delightful was the hospitality of the innkeeper. If you enjoy the arts and a big breakfast -- visit Parker Guest House.

Comfortable accommodations with interesting host -- a local artist who also runs an artspace (and cooks an excellent breakfast -- tasty & nutritious!)

Lovely Stay, Amazing Host

I stayed with Ed in June and found him to be an excellent host! I looked round his gallery, which was amazing. My room was extermly comfortable and clean and I would definately stay with Ed again if I ever came back to Cleveland.
