Cute place!

  • 5 of 5
Me and my kids loved staying in this cute little house in the Village of Lansing, IL. We stayed here while visiting my mother, brother, and sister in law who all live nearby. It was clean, bright, and the location can't be beat. I-94 is right around the corner, so you have access to Chicago or the Indiana dunes. Even if you don't want to take the freeway into the city, the train station is about 15 minutes away in Hammond. I love that it had a washer and dryer, a bonus when traveling with kids. My only issue was parking-you have to share parking with nearby residents, so it can be tight and you cannot park on the street or in the alley.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay despite the tight parking situation. The two spots we offer can be a little tight especially for larger vehicles. We hope this doesn't hold you back from a return trip. We'd love to have you back!

It's my first time in renting a home and I must say it was great . Cindy was great in providing everything that we needed for a whole week. A dream house for our family. I really hated to leave. I would recommend this home. The town is great and every body we spoke to was so kind and helpful. Yes Cindy your home felt like I never left mine. Thank you for everything . God Bless

Perfectly clean!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with friends while site seeing in Chicago.
The home was adorable and SUPER clean and comfortable too. Although we didn't meet the owners face to face they really seemed very friendly and helpful.
One night we had a typical chicago style pizza from Beggars (just down the road) and loved it-great pizza!

Cozy get away house!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This is a nice house to stay in on vacation. Location was great didn't take too long to get to places. The layout of the house was as described. It was close to good restaurants, and stores. The kids loved the pool that was only 5 minutes down the road. Easy in and out of the City of Chicago. Owners was very helpful when asked about directions to places. House was very clean and comfortable. Perfect house to stay at for a week. Can't wait to plan our next vacation back to the Chicago area and come back to this house. This is the place to stay when you want a nice relaxing vacation.

Great time in Lansing!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Cindy and John's rental in Lansing. It was comfortable for the five of us and everything was very clean and convenient. I would highly recommend this property to a friend and we hope to go back there next year ourselves. We took the Metra train in to Chicago every day from nearby Camulet - it was affordable and easy to use. Downtown Chicago was amazing - so much to see and do - and the people were very friendly and helpful. We especially loved the Willis Tower, Art Institute of Chicago, Navy Pier, Lake Michigan beach, Shedd Aquarium, Field Museum, Millenium Park and pizza at Giordano's. The Chicago Blues Festival was also going on in the Petrillo Music Shell area. It was so much fun for all of us! We had a great family vacation. Thank you, Cindy and John!

Well kept house. Attentive owner.

  • 4 of 5
Fit our family of six just fine. We felt safe. Parking was just out the backdoor. The house is close to a Walgreens. The interstate is not far. The ambient noises from the train and the nearby road were not bothersome to us.
Having a washer and dryer was nice.
Never met owner, but the communication prior to our arrival (and after our arrival) was stellar. The property was very well kept. We have recommended the property to other families.
Something we wanted to try was to take the Metra Train from the Homewood station to Chicago. It looked like you could park at the station, then ride all the way to the Millennium station downtown for about $5.00. We will try that next time. We ended up driving to a station on the Red Line and riding the "L" in and out.
Overall, nice place for us.
