About The Owner

Mark and Ashley are a husband and wife team that have one foot planted firmly in Chicago. As a former Chicago resident for 10 years, Ashley has both friends and family in Chicago. We have twins who love to visit Chicago! They both know that Dad's favorite building is the Hancock.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2008

Why The Owner chose Chicago

There is only one Gold Coast in Chicago and this historical building is in the heart of it. Our endeavor started out with simply wanting a place to stay when we would visit and eventually use in retirement. We love Chicago and all the City has to offer...from great food, to world class shopping, to museums, architecture, sports, beaches...you name it and Chicago has it all.

What makes this apartment unique

The location cannot be beat. Chicago's epicenter for nightlife is at the end of the block with fabulous restaurants like Gibson's, Tavern On Rush, Morton's, etc. coming together in a perfect triangular parklike setting. If you want to feel like a true Chicago resident in one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Chicago, this is the place. The tree-lined street is a perfect prelude to your arrival at this historical building. Shopping on Michigan Avenue is just a block away as well. It's an AMAZING location!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time in Chicago. The location of the brownstone was perfect- we walked everywhere and were able to jump on the L close by. I don't have any criticism- thanks for making it such an easy process.



Thanks!

Adorable apartment in an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5
We booked this adorable apartment for our four day trip to Chicago This was our first visit to Chicago and I could not have picked a nicer place or better location. We took the train in from the airport and walked to the apartment. Despite the fact that it was very cold, we walked a lot and utilized the subway and buses to get around. The neighborhood was always busy and we always felt safe. If we ever return to Chicago, I guarantee we will book one of the three apartments in this historic brownstone.

Terrific to stay on the Near North Side

  • 4 of 5
This is a very comfortable apartment in a great location. It is a bit of a hike to get downtown (we did walk it once or twice) but the Red Line will take you to the Loop very quickly. As other reviewers have mentioned, the bathroom and kitchen are small but entirely functional. The major kitchen appliances are high end. The street is quiet, affluent, and obviously quite safe. Restaurants, groceries, pharmacies, etc. are all within reasonable walking distance. Note that the Clark Street entrances to the Red Line are currently (November 2014) closed, but even with the extra block walk to LaSalle it is still a slightly shorter although slightly less scenic walk than to the State/Chicago entrances. Note also that the building has no elevator. We enjoyed our stay here and recommend the apartment to others.

Windy City Wedding Weekend

  • 4 of 5
We rented the whole brownstone for our daughter's wedding weekend. Our whole family (11 adults) had plenty of room, beds, clean linen, towels, dish ware ect ... for a comfortable stay. The brownstone was clean and as described, there were no surprises. The outside had newly planted fall flowers in the window boxes and pots. Inside had new curtains on the bedroom windows and the house was neat and clean. We used both, blow up beds and a new pullout couch that has a memory foam topper to put on the flimsy mattress. My adult son slept on that and it was very comfortable. We were impressed by the water pressure and the plentiful hot water for showering. Grocery stores, Bloomingdales and many great restaurants for all budgets within a 5 minute walk. My husband and I came in a day earlier than the rest of the family and we grocery shopped for the weekend. Treasure Island .3 miles from the brownstone delivered our groceries and carried them up to the 2nd floor apt. For a $9 dollar delivery fee. This was wonderful since we had bought cases of bottled water and other heavier items. Recommend Nico for dinner and Luxbar for brunch. I highly recommend this Brownstone for family gatherings! We will be back!

Girls Weekend with a Baby!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was perfect for our group--we had 3 ladies and a one year old. We took the pack n play for the baby to sleep in. The bathroom and kitchen are small, but well maintained. The apartment is beautiful and well represented by the listing. It is on the second floor, but wide steps to get the stroller up and down. The location could not be better--we did early morning coffee walks, lots of shopping on Michigan Avenue and Oak Street and enjoyed the neighborhood immensely. We were able to park our car at the end of the street for $30/day--there is no street parking--but we never moved our car until we left. If you want to eat in, the kitchen is adequately stocked, but there are lots and lots of great restaurants nearby. Go and enjoy this haven! It is a minute from the fast paced city, but on a quiet, tree lined street. Loved it!

Gold Coast Holiday

  • 4 of 5
Location really cannot be beat with the beach a block away, and the CTA only a couple blocks further. Connections for meals, music, entertainment, sport events or business readily accessible. Only complaint was the Easy-Bed deflated several times / night and the pull out couch was only reasonably comfortable. Overall, balancing the pros against the cons, I will return in a heartbeat. Safe, friendly, neighborhood with lots to do. Really enjoyed our stay.
