About Chris and Susan

We are a married couple that has traveled throughout the US extensively, using the vacation rentals as our lodging in most cases. We have always enjoyed staying in a place that wasn't a tiny 300 sq ft hotel room with no character, and we wanted to try a vacation rental with our property. Our hope is that you will walk in and feel instantly welcomed, and comfortable. We live onsite, but there is no real space that you will have to share with us, including the entrance and driveway.

Chris and Susan purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Chris and Susan chose La Grange

The property is located in the late 1800's established village of La Grange, Illinois. It's in a family oriented neighborhood, and we have always enjoyed coming to La Grange for various reasons, and staying to go to lunch, dinner or a movie, just 2 blocks away. We relocated to La Grange in 2013, after completing a complete remodel of our building.

What makes this apartment unique

Our building is completely remodeled, and thoroughly updated - walls, floors, windows, and appliances, and fixtures.

We have had several different experiences in vacation rentals and we we hope that we have covered most of the deficiencies that we have come across. Simple things like cleanliness, comfortable seating, and sleeping for sure, but also providing good cookware and kitchen utensils, not 23 slotted spoons but no functional cork screw....

Please let us know if there are any allergy concerns so that we may prepare the house or kitchen for your stay.

Beautiful and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this location. It was convenient, comfortable and lovely. We had plenty of space for our family of four. There are many dining and shopping options within a very short walking distance. It was quiet, had comfortable beds and very very clean. The owners quickly responded to any questions we had via text. We hope to stay at this home again when we return to Lagrange!

Perfect spot for exploring Chicago and the Western Suburbs

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we have rented this wonderful apartment for a month. We lived in the. Western Suburbs for many years and still come back to visit Chicago, friends, doctors, etc. and this apartment is ideal for our comings and goings. It is spacious and very clean. Indeed the keep the apartment in a condition that is hypoallergenic. I have asthma and have no problems while in residence. I also cook, a LOT, and I absolutely love the kitchen. It has superb quality appliances as well as every pot, pan, cookie sheet you would ever want in a rental. The weather was erratic while were were there (May) and some days we needed the air conditioning while we needed the heater on other days. Both worked perfectly. It is located in a great neighborhood of historic houses and is a short two blocks from downtown LaGrange and from the train taking you in to Chicago. Chris and Susan provide just the right amount of attention. They are there when you need them, but otherwise give you all the privacy you want. We just couldn't ask for a better rental and will be sure to come back for future visits.

What an awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family truly enjoyed our stay at Chris and Susan’s apartment. It was very comfortable, had everything we needed to have some good family time while seeing our extended family. The beds were comfortable, the baths were new and clean and the kitchen was extremely well appointed. Plus we could walk to restaurants, Trader Joe’s and shops. We plan on staying here again! Thanks Susan and Chris!
