We have been neighborhood residents for over 15 years and have not only enjoyed raising a family while seeing a positive transformation of Chicago during that time, but also of the Roscoe Village neighborhood and its amenities. We own and operate two award-winning and acclaimed restaurants here, and realized we had the ideal setting for a bed & breakfast style vacation rental conveniently located right in the heart of our community.
While staying at Sopra Volo (means 'above Volo' in Latin), guests have immediate access to more than a dozen dining options to fit any budget, pretty sidewalk cafes & hidden backyard garden patios, as well as unique independently owned retail shops & boutiques (also a Starbucks on our block housed in a converted former Motorcycle Cafe 'The Ace Cafe').
Within blocks there are family friendly parks, a baseball diamond, public pool, and a park district field house (offering tennis courts & a basketball court), as well as kayaking nearby.
The neighborhood is extremely walk-able, upper-middle class and safe, has seen a wave of renovations over the last decade, and just two blocks away there is a 100+ year old Pencil Factory that has been converted to lofts, with original factory-worker row houses still intact located on adjacent blocks.
Public transportation is easy from Sopra Volo and includes the Damen bus just steps out the front door (a direct 10 minute ride to the heart of Bucktown & Wicker Park), Chicago's famous 'EL' train at the Paulina stop just three blocks away, plus the Belmont or Addison (direct to Wrigley Field- Home of the Cubs) Street Bus just two blocks away. Nearby daily bike rentals also available!
If you visit us in the summer, Wrigley Field is just a 20 minute walk (about a mile and a half) through residential neighborhoods and tree lined streets, filled with 100 year old plus houses.
Finally, the guest suite is located directly above the acclaimed wine bar, Volo. It is beautifully designed with an urban chic interior and rustic hidden backyard cabana garden in which we from time to time host weddings. Additionally, the unit is located directly across the street from the celebrated casual brunch spot, Kitsch'n on Roscoe. Decked out in colorful 1970's retro dinette sets, and filled with assorted retro and vintage decor, Kitsch'n has been featured in Bon Apetit Magazine and on $40 a Day with Rachel Ray.
We recently spent a wonderful weekend in Chicago. The property is in a great location - walk to amazing restaurants, cute neighborhood shops and walk to public transportation. The apartment is just as described if not better! The owner was great to work with. He communicated with us for our arrival with clear instructions for check-in. There was information in the apartment for restaurants and sights to see in Chicago. We have found a great place to stay for our future visits to Chicago.
My husband and our two teenagers and I spent a week in Chicago in early August, staying at Sopra Volo for 7 nights. We were in town for a family wedding, and also to escape the Texas heat. While I can't give credit to the owners for the weather, everything else about our stay was lovely. It's a very good apartment and wonderfully located in a sweet neighborhood. We did not rent a car, opting to take mass transit everywhere, and borrowing a car from family in town on only one occasion. We also did a good bit of cooking in the apartment and found it well-stocked with cooking tools. While sharing a bathroom with two teens was a bit tricky, having a separate bedroom for our daughter was priceless. There was no noise from the restaurant below, or any other unit. The place is very nice without being pretentious. We were able to get to a bus in about a minute and the El in about 7 or 8 minutes. At the end of a day of sightseeing and knocking about one of our favorite cities, it was great to come "home" to a lovely apartment and unwind. We would definitely stay here again!
The property was accurately listed regarding its location. The appearance and amenities of the property was also great. The property was clean and well-maintained. Over all I was satisfied and would the property as excellent.
P.S. Thank You Jon for shipping my wife's shoes, you made that process very easy.
This was an awesome place to stay! It was in a great area with lots of nice people, close to public transportation . The owner was super nice to work with. He even gave us an extremely detailed map to get to the unit from the train walking and using public transportation. We were there for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and it went right by the place. When we told him that, he even put out a water cooler for the walkers! Would definitely stay there again!
Trendy location lots of shops, restaurants & bars, close to the train to downtown, walkable to Wrigley
Our stay in Roscoe Village was great it's a cute quite place. The stay above Volo was very nice. The owner was so on top of things. Made sure we had keys & all the necessary information for our stay. The apt was clean & stocked with linens. We enjoyed hanging out all in one place with our family. We were very pleased & happy we found this place to stay. If in Chicago again we would absolutely rent this apt again. Thanks Jon!
The unit is located within an enjoyable 15-20 minute walk through safe residential neighborhoods to Wrigley Field (easy public transportation is able easily accessible both to Wrigley and downtown).
