Spacious Bright Vacation Rental Loft in the Heart of Everything Chicago sleeps - 2 - 10 Guests

Our funky warehouse & former tavern turned costume factory turned fabulous Lincoln Park home can be your home away from home in Chicago.

If you're heading to Chicago and looking to be near downtown but want a more neighborhood experience with friendly, knowledgeable transcontinental hosts, our amazing, bright and sunny 1800 square foot loft just might be the perfect fit for you.

Located in Chicago's newest neighborhood, "SONO," at the crossroads of Lincoln Park - Old Town & River North - we are just two blocks south of the Chicago Transit Authority's Halsted Street bus, North Avenue & Division street buses as well as the North/Clybourn Red Line and Sedgwick Brown Line trains. In short, being just 2 blocks from the Red Line train, with easy access to three bus routes (one of which stops right out in front of the building) and the Kennedy and Lake Shore Drive Expressways, there is nowhere you can't get to in pretty much a straight shot.

My husband and I are just now completing this renovation as we downsize from the amazing dream home we created in the early 1990s to run our translation business and raise our family. Your home base in Chicago is the first part of what will ultimately be 4 urban loft homes in a former tavern & dance hall (1890s) turned costume & magic card factory (1950s) turned our urban dream home (1990s).

Our spacious 3 bedroom sleeps up to 8 guests in brand new Sealy Posturepedic beds. The master bedroom has a Queen bed and a twin bed (sleeps 3), a second bedroom has a Queen bed and a twin bed (sleeps 3) and the third bedroom sleeps 2 guests in a Queen bed.

The living room has one convertible full size futon sofa and one twin day bed and can accommodate an additional 2 guests.

Two full bathrooms with either a walk in glass enclosed shower or a glass enclosed combo bath/shower, a to die for gourmet chef's kitchen with all of the accouterments that go with such a kitchen, a dining table that truly seats the same number of guests the apartment sleeps - this is THE home away from home you want for your stay in Chicago.

The neighborhood is great: we've got the country's second largest Whole Foods market around the corner with it's fabulous food court (5 dining options) and tables along the riverfront, a great neighborhood pub & wine bar, the newly opened and equally wonderful Mariano's Market (also with food options, a wine bar and live entertainment in the afternoons and early evenings), as well as great casual places like Nando's Peri Peri, Yard House, Earl's Kitchen, SoNo Woodfired, Burger Bar, Uncle Julio's, and Goose Island Brewery if you'd like to sample a local Chicago beer. We also have great sushi and pan asian food at Circle, a couple of terrific Italian spots (with outdoor gardens in the summer) and a number of other restaurant options within a 5 minute walk of the apartment. Shoppers will love being in the heart of the "little" Magnificent Mile, with nearby locations including Nordstrom's Rack, Saks Off 5th, World Market, Crate & Barrel, and everything in between.

There are also a couple of great live theater venues just up the street including Steppenwolf and the Royal George, comedy and improv at both IO Theater and Second City, the Archlight theater with first run and art house films, plus great bowling at the newly opened and really fun King's Bowl. The Mag Mile, Millennium Park, Chicago's amazing lakefront and Navy Pier, as well as the city's finest museums are all just minutes away - but you're still in a funky friendly neighborhood with great little local shops & cafes, as opposed to the high rise heartland.

Our proximity to everything and the great public transportation nearby means you don't need a car, but if you are bringing one there is plenty of safe, free parking on our street, and we have an an off street parking space you can add to your reservation (fee).

Check with us for availability (and be sure to let us know your dates, the number of guests) we'll get back to you quickly.

After 12 years of hosting guests from around the world in Athens, we're truly excited to be welcoming you to our original home in Chicago.
