Very nice rooms. Every corner is well decorated with furnitures or flowers. I was touched when I saw Brian built many birds nests in the garden. I even saw baby birds go out or into the nests. We also talked a lot, such as trump and politics.Thanks a lot for Brian's warm acceptance.Very nice rooms. Every corner is well decorated with furnitures or flowers.

My daughter and I recently stayed at Brian and Pat’s lovely home near Lake Erie. We were looking for somewhere near the lake to get away and unwind. The Birdhouse was a perfect fit for us. Upon arrival, Brian greeted and welcomed us to their home, showing us to our spotless accommodations. We had the entire upstairs to ourselves, it included a nice size private bathroom, 2 separate bedrooms and a third room which is used as a TV/reading room with a perfect size refrigerator. Avon Lake and surrounding areas are simply beautiful! We took a couple of walks along local beaches and visited nearby towns. We loved Vermillion and its quaint small shops. Those who would like to go to Cedar Point or Sandusky will not be disappointed as The Birdhouse is only a short drive away (50 minutes)! The route along Lake Road is charming and relaxing. We found several wonderful local restaurants that Brian recommended to be spot-on! But our most wonderful eating experiences were the morning breakfasts’ that Brain and Pat prepared. They went above and beyond to work with my daughter’s food preferences. She especially loved his coffee, including Cappuccino. Each morning we started our day on full stomachs after a delicious, hearty meal! Brain and Pat made us feel very welcome and treated us like family. We even spent one night with them watching the Cleveland Indians on TV in their family room. Which is also a very pleasant room to sit and watch nature, especially the birds. I will definitely recommend The Birdhouse BnB to friends and fellow travelers. Thank you for a wonderful get-away!! Amy and Rebekah

Great location, very quiet. Brian and Pat were very accommodating and super friendly but gave us our privacy. It was a pleasure staying there.

If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing spot on the far west side, this is a great place to book. Brian and his wife were warm and welcoming and their homemade breakfast was such a nice added benefit, particularly while easing into an earlier time zone! Brian ended up saving our vacation by accepting our booking request at the last minute. He was easy to communicate with and we felt very lucky to have found his place. We'd definitely stay here again!

Thank you Lynne and Mike. It felt like having family stay with us. I am so glad that we met and that a "last minute booking" turned into such a wonderful experience. Please come again and visit. It would be a joy to have you as guests anytime!

Brian & Pat's hosting was amazing. They run it much like a great B&B with daily breakfast and coffee and treats throughout the day. The whole second floor was ours with a wonderful private bath and TV sitting room. The home sits directly across the street from Lake Erie and there is a lovely view too. We also were delighted with the view of the birdhouses just visible via a large living room window... and we even saw a bright RED Cardinal. (None in California.) But perhaps the most outstanding feature of the experience is the hospitality and helpfulness of Brian and Pat. I'm sure I'll regret this, but I told them they don't charge enough. Now we'll never find a vacancy. We will be back for sure!

Response from Brian:
Thank you Steve. You were really fun to have with us. I miss the enjoyable conversations we had and hope that someday here or in California, that we can meet again. We have now implemented several of your suggestions. They were spot on and some "little" ideas have really improved what we offer. Thank you for being so kind and helpful.

I am married and grandfather of 20 beautiful children. My wife's name is Patricia and we raised 11 children here in Cleveland, Ohio.

We love to travel, play games, watch baseball, eat at nice places and go to movies. We enjoy meeting new people and sharing our home with them.
We are sociable types and love to have family and friends over. Folks tell us they love the house and outdoor spaces, especially the lake views. But we also will give you privacy and space. We enjoy being relaxed and flexible.

We also love to travel by car and stay in people's homes and bnb's.
