    This year’s Tremont Trek was probably the best one yet. The homes on the tour were particularly interesting and diverse. Area restaurants really outdid themselves to provide first rate food. The wines offered were excellent, thanks to Sandy Earl and Wine Trends. And it didn’t hurt that the weather was perfect!
    Tremont Trek, the annual “progressive dinner party and house tour,” was chaired by local residents Margy and Amo Judd, Roberta Rocco and Sammy Catania. For many, this is THE not-to-be-missed-event of the summer. The word obviously spread, because there were a number of attendees from out of state. 
    Guests gathered at Tremont Place Lofts, the newly renovated Gospel Press Building, for a kick-off party before departing in guided groups. Historical homes on the tour included an 1870s Victorian that was once a funeral parlor, an 1860s cottage that was integrated into a three-story modern addition and a colonial originally built in the 1870s that was completely reconstructed. The owner, Gillian Barnes, who also owns Tremont’s newest gallery/boutique Geode Gallery, is the daughter of noted artist Ron Joranko, whose art fills the house along with a collection of antiques from around the world. New homes on the tour included two stylistically different contemporary town homes. One was sleek with clean lines, three levels and multiple terraces; the other was a colorful two-story with a rooftop deck and unobstructed views of downtown Cleveland.
    Twelve Tremont restaurants and eateries provided the food served at each stop.  The wrap-up party at Paul Duda Gallery/Robert Hartshorn Studio had a decadent dessert buffet courtesy of A Cookie & A Cupcake, Lilly Handmade Chocolates and Grumpy’s.             The Tremont Trek made approximately $10,000 to benefit the Tremont West Development Corporation. Next year, an affordably priced garden tour will be added on the day after the Trek. Story and photographs by caroline R. merk
