Every now and then, and we know you're as susceptible to these urges as we are, we feel the need for a weekend getaway — without getting away. We crave the sensations of vacation, but we only have the time for a staycation. Thankfully, Cleveland is littered with fine hospitality options. And thankfully, Scene readers have their heads screwed on straight when they say that Glidden House is our city's finest bed and breakfast. The place is an architectural gem on the hemline of Wade Oval and University Circle — right in the heart of dear Case Western Reserve University and mere short strolls away from the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Botanical Gardens, the Natural History Museum and Severence Hall. The entertainment options are bountiful, but it's the Glidden House itself that will anchor your heart and comfort your head. A better romantic weekend has yet to be designed, scientists say.
