Great location in a sweet spot

  • 5 of 5

Set up of this condo was perfect for our family of 5 with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a pull out in the living room. Super soft lux sheets. Keyless entry made in and out easy. Short walk to Sedgwick L on brown line made access downtown and also to Wrigleyville simple. Also they provided us with parking permits for the neighborhood so we had no trouble parking the car in this hopping neighborhood. Also only a couple blocks to Second City and Lincoln Park farmers market. Great spot. Would stay again as soon as we can get back to town!

Adorable place in Old Town

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for a girls weekend in Chicago. Upon arrival, we were able to use codes to enter the building which was super convenient. The 3rd floor apartment was clean and spacious. It was nice not to have much noise having no one above us. There were 3 of us so 2 girls got their own bedrooms and 1 slept on the couch, which was actually very comfortable when not pulled out. The bathrooms were stocked with towels and were designed really nicely. There were no extras left for us (no beer or wine in the fridge) which is always a nice touch, but definitely not a deal breaker. Make sure to bring your own playing cards, etc. as well. One thing we wished was in the apartment was a full length mirror.. the mirrors in the bathrooms were placed high on the wall so it was hard to see your full body. Overall, we did not have any major complaints. The house and neighborhood were cute. The unit was a little overpriced. That being said, the owners allowed us to leave our luggage for a few extra hours on our last day while we had lunch so that really helped us out. We would definitely recommend and stay again.

Wonderful location, and a comfy, cozy, well-appointed apartment

  • 5 of 5

Four of us spent a wonderful Thanksgiving in this Old Town/Lincoln Park third-floor apartment. It's a beautiful place and very well-maintained -- perfect as a base for seeing sights (1.5 blocks to the Sedgwick station, a 10-minute walk to fun shopping, 5-minute walk to Second City comedy shows, a few blocks to Lincoln Park and the zoo). Also great for a wintery vacation of just hanging around the apartment and the neighborhood. It's pricey, but for us and for a holiday week, it turned out to be worth it. We had a little trouble connecting with the owners/managers at first, but once we did they were very responsive. I'd recommend it, and we hope to come back.

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second guesthouse we have stayed in. Both experiences were awesome! Joe and John were very informative, helping me select the best location for the weekend's activities. They also gave us free tickets to a comedy show! The apartments are very tastefully updated and have everything you need. Both apartments I stayed in(Roscoe Village & Old Towne) were on a residential street with permit parking but also very close to restaurants, coffee shops, and subway. Reasonable price and so much better than a hotel room! Can't wait to go back!

Our family took over most of the building, and it was great! Accommodations were clean, updated, well appointed, AND we got to be close to family, near great neighbors, close to downtown, etc.
