Lots of original materials used by Dr. Bob, and so many others. Original furnishings, pictures, and feel. Great to be met with heart felt "Welcome home" from volunteers working to keep the home up and running
Walking up the 12 steps and through the door of the birthplace of Alcoholics Anonymous was a bucket list item for me. The house is full of the Spirit of recovery, the coffee is on, and volunteers guide visitors through the history. Just being in...More
Being in the program, and visiting the co-founders home was inspirational. This is where it began. The typewriter used to create the first edition of the Big Book is sitting there. To me , inspirational.
I was only able to drive by Dr. Bob's home since it had closed for the day, but it's cute and well maintained. I will say, though, that Ardmore Ave. is an old brick street that has many ups and downs - it's very uneven....More
Visited this home in June of 2017. A neat look back to the 1910-20s. The neighborhood is beautiful with brick lined streets. Nice displays in inside the house chronicling the life of one of AAs founders
Yes, both my wife and I have visited Doctor Bob's home before. My first visit was in August of 1988 when things were, more or less, just beginning in terms of the restoration. Yes, we never miss a chance to visit when we are remotely...More
For anyone who considers him/herself a "friend of Bill W", or even just a person interested in self-help in general, the house of Dr. Bob will hold great meaning for you. It gave me goosebumps just walking up to the property, taking a stroll up...More

I think you will find the Sheraton Suites in nearby Cuyahoga Falls a good place to stay. It overlooks waterfalls, the town is smaller and quieter, and has St. Thomas Hospital, where the "man under the bed" stayed and the first treatments were given. Akron can be a bit busy and noisy on Market Street where the Hilton is. . Also, there is a National Forest in the area. There are wonderful parks in this part of the country.
They have a nice restaurant overlooking the waterfalls too. Its probably less than 20 minutes from Dr. Bob's. Their number is 786-308-3000.
