Our property sits on acres with a large meadow in the back viewable from 5 large windows in our family room, where you can sit and enjoy all the wildlife that passes through the backyard/meadow. Our large deck has comfortable chairs and BBQs for your use.
Although in a rural setting we have a Super Walmart, Kohls, Lowes, and other businesses approx 3 miles away for easy shopping. We are approx 20 minutes from downtown Akron for more shopping! We will provide a GPS, if desired, with locations of grocery stores and other businesses for your use while living in our home.
Our home is a split level with a family room/kitchen combination downstairs, and a cozy fireplace for those cool days/nights, and AC throughout our home as needed. Bedrooms are located 6 steps up and the laundry room is located 6 steps downstairs in our basement.
Wireless internet, cable TV, and local/national long distance service will be made available for you if you wish.
Our area is rural and peaceful. There are many developed hiking and biking trails, along with fishing in the Mogadore Reservoir located within 1/4 mile from our home.
This time of the year our area is busy with local festivals,farmers' markets, and outdoor concerts. There are several small community theaters with great live productions at very reasonable prices and also larger venues in Akron for symphonies and other musical productions. You are within easy driving distance to Cleveland to attend a Cleveland Indians baseball game, visit the National Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, or the famous Westside Market for beautiful produce, meats, and bakery items at reasonable prices. It is a short drive to Canton, Ohio to visit the National Football Hall of Fame. And finally about an hour's drive further south is a large Amish area for day trips to explore the farms, restaurants and shops in the Amish communities.
There is much to do and see in our area! We do require that you provide your own transportation for this housesit. You will have garage space available.
