Go figure. I'm a life long Northeast Ohio resident and I plan a get away weekend in downtown Cleveland. To celebrate my wife's birthday she suggested we go low key this year. After 38 years of marriage I know what that means. After reading a review about the J Palen House B & B in the Cleveland Plain Dealer it... More

I called on a Thursday to check availability and was easily able to book a stay the following night. My wife and I couldn't arrive at check-in time and were accommodated with ease. We booked a room called the studio, located a short walk from the main house. The studio was a great place to stay - private but in... More

We went to Market Garden Brewery for my husband's birthday, and as we didn't want to drive home afterward, I had reserved the Palen room as a surprise for him. The reservation experience was very pleasant, and the room was clean and lovely. We had a very relaxing soak in the Jacuzzi tub before dinner, and slept amazingly on the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the J Palen House on December 8. We were in Clevelend for our anniversary (wanting to go to the zoo and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame). We stayed in The Studio (which is a block or two away from the main house). It was gorgeous inside! Everything was immaculate and welcoming. The Studio... More

My husband and I spent a getaway weekend at the J. Palen House. Loved the delicious breakfast - Diane had no problem catering to our gluten-free diet. Our room was cozy and spacious. We loved being in walking distance of so many restaurants and the West Side Market.

But that we now had here but one ten thousand of those Bed & Breakfasts across America as memorable as the J. Palen House. Apologies to the Duke of Westmoreland, but the Palen House in Cleveland’s Ohio City is truly special. Diane the proprietor runs a tight enterprise yet makes it look seamless as all the best do.

My husband and I alternate planning our anniversary weekends and this year, our 11th, was my turn. There are a lot of options in Ohio but I settled on J.

We stayed for two nights in the Roost. As soon as we arrived, we wish we had booked a longer stay. The accommodations were cozy, extremely clean and private. The renovations to the barn kept the original character of the building in tact. The breakfasts were top notch, just the right portions to start the day. Ours included apple pancakes,... More

We stayed 2 nights in The Roost. It was lovely - would be great for a week because of the kitchen, which we only used for the coffee maker and put some soda/water in the fridge. The breakfasts were delicious and our hosts friendly with lots of great advice for the area! Would recommend wholeheartedly. Great location too.
