Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Willoughby Hills - Strawberry Cottage

4 adults max and no children.

The Strawberry Cottage and the grounds are perfect for a Wedding. The grounds are beautiful and the catering could be set up in the newly built garage with tents set up on the property. It is so picturesque in the summer with the gardens in bloom.


The Space

This could go from renting a private room and bath or the entire home. There are actually 5 bedrooms but only three are set up as bedrooms the others are a sewing room and office.This is up to whatever the client desires. This home is on an acre of land with beautiful gardens with lovely indoor and outdoor spaces. All my friends say it looks like a Bed and Breakfast. There is master bedroom with a private balcony and 5 piece bath. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom. Very close to downtown Cleveland in the lovely community of Willoughby and Willoughby Hills. We are very near Lake Erie and Manakiki Golf Course is right across the street in the park-like setting of the home since the golf course used to be an old estate. You will love staying here and will not want to leave. Full access to kitchen with towels and all bedding provided. There are so many parks in the general area because the Cleveland area was built on a park system when it was created. The Cuyahoga National Forest is only 30 minutes away. The neighbourhood is all residential and everyone is friendly. The home itself is in a park-like setting too. There are three outdoor spaces for eating, talking or relaxing. There is a large front porch with overlooks the garden, an outdoor patio at the side which overlooks the meadow and ravine and an outdoor deck for eating with nature. Perfect for the spring and summer! You have access the entire home except the office and sewing room

Guest Access

Strawberry Cottage is located just east of Cleveland and you can be down to University Circle, Downtown Cleveland, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Progressive Field (the Tribe), The Browns Stadium and The Cleveland Clinic in 20 minutes with easy access to the highway. Hillcrest Hospital and Progressive Insurance are just down the road. Beachwood Mall and Legacy Village are 15 minutes away too. This is a perfect place to visit family in Cleveland, a romantic hideaway, or a long term stay for business. You make it what you want.

Interaction with Guests

Most of the time guests will have the entire home to themselves and this just depends on the time of year.

The Neighbourhood

The neighbourhood is charming. You are in a country setting but very near the highway and also the charming town of Willoughby with fabulous restaurants and shops and Sun Plum....a great farmers market open all year round for fresh vegetables, fruit and baked goods.

Getting around

There is no public transportation but everything is easily accessible by car and great biking in the summer. Very near two metro for walking and one for golf which is right across the street from the house and is a public course.

About Corky Miller-Strong

I am a teacher and this is my home. I work at a boarding school and travel home when I can. I have renovated this home lovingly for the past ten years and it has been in the finals of This Old House for remodels of the bathroom and outside gardens.

Corky Miller-Strong purchased this farmhouse in 2004

Why Corky Miller-Strong chose Ohio

I have always wanted a home with a large from porch with unique and charming characteristics. I am from Shaker Heights, Ohio but have lived in California and Denver. I wanted something with character and not the 'cookie-cutter' homes of these two states. I could not wait to come home and I found the perfect house to renovate. My friends have always said it looks like a Bed and Breakfast and now it is more like a Country Inn and I hope you love it as much as I do.

What makes this farmhouse unique

You are very near the highway with major access to all shopping but you will think you are in the country and far removed from everything. The neighbourhood is friendly and the home is on a dead end street with very little traffic. You will love the area and all it has to offer. Bring your golf clubs in spring, summer and fall since the golf course is right across the street.

This cottage is very beautiful and very clean. My husband and I were blown away with the décor and how everything was so perfect and well put together. The home is spacious and has everything that you could possibly need. Corky was quick to respond to our questions and needs. My husband and I would definitely stay here again and we wish we would have had more time to enjoy all of the features of the home.

Beautiful place!

  • 4 of 5

Although ours was not a pleasure trip, it was a pleasure staying at the strawberry cottage. The grounds were beautiful! My husband and I stayed in the master suite. The bathroom had been newly renovated and was absolutely beautiful...I would have been happy to spend my whole time there. The cottage was lovely and we would definitely stay again.

Felt like we took a step back in time with modern day conviences.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. Having coffee in the morning on one of the outdoor sitting areas was a terrific way to start out our day. There was plenty of room for entertaining family in the evening. Our only regret is our schedule was so packed we didn't get to spend as much time just relaxing in this wonderful environment. Very cozy with all the sitting areas.

Very Cute House in a Quiet Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The house was cute, clean, and quiet. The owner met us at the door and gave us a tour, showing us how to turn on the TV, air conditioning, etc. The instructions ahead of time were great. We would love to go back for a visit when we would have time to hang around the house a bit more.
