Absolutely beautiful row house!

  • 5 of 5

My college besties and I stayed here for a reunion and to celebrate our 50th birthdays. It was perfect. Lots of room, lovely accommodations, easy access to food and shopping and our host was the best. She was super responsive to my inquiries. We will definitely come back!

Stay in a piece of beautiful Old Chicago revitalized with modern luxury!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Chicago for our son's wedding and wanted to have the family all together for the event. This place was perfect for our stay!

Comfortable elegance would describe the feel of the home.

Plenty of room for an extended family with children.

Stephanie had the home super stocked with plenty of very nice towels, washcloths,

soaps, shampoos and coffee! We wanted for nothing.

The location was great for our needs. On the last day of our trip we walked to

Wrigley Field.

Thank you Stephanie, you were a truly gracious host!

Great family house! Very clean!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Friday from 5 different states for our annual away game football tradition. The Steelers let us down by loosing, but we all had a great time. The house is beautiful with every detail thought of. Whole Foods is a five minute walk and we visited frequently. They also sell liquor there, FYI. We used Uber rather than the train for convenience. But the train is close. The noise from the train did not keep us up but turned into a laughing matter when we were on the deck because you have to pause your conversation for 15 seconds while it goes by. But WTH, it's Chicago, and there are trains everywhere. We didn't let it bother us and neither should you. Laugh and enjoy the beautiful house. You will have a great time. Thank you Stephanie for all the quick response and all the help. Very nice working with you. Thanks again, Nancy.

The property was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property. We had 9 girls in town and this was the perfect place for our stay. The house was cozy and had everything we needed. Close to the Whole Foods and public transit made everything very easy. Stephanie thought of everything-- from makeup wipes to hair dryers to plenty of towels for everyone. We had all of the essentials we needed for our stay. Highly recommend this home to future guests and large groups.
