About Mark Ladner

My wife and I have enjoyed living in our vintage 2 flat on the tree lined street in this Lakeview neighborhood for the last 25 years. So many places are is walking distance that we rarely use our car except for work. We have rented our 1st. floor as a short term vacation/temp apartment for the last 6 years and have hosted guests from all over the world to locals relocating or remodeling. We have truly enjoyed hosting guests that have come to explore the city, go to a ball game, a special family occasion or conference that brings them to Chicago.

Mark Ladner purchased this apartment in 1986

Why Mark Ladner chose Chicago

We purchased our 2 flat located in this north side neighborhood almost 25 years ago as a place to live and raise a family. We have never regretted moving to Lakeview. It is a vibrant neighborhood filled with tree lined streets lined with vintage maintained homes and apartments. This is a true Chicago neighborhood. Filled with a healthy mix of young families and singles as well as older long time residents. It is very walkable. There is little reason to need a car. Excellent public transportation to downtown and Lakeview is a very walkable part of town. It has been rated 92% on the walk ability index. Just a great place to experience a Chicago neighborhood.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our Christmas holiday here so much. The Location was in the center of all our adventures in Chicago. Thanks so much for thinking of everything to make our stay so enjoyable.

This apartment was perfect for our needs: So nice to be able to stretch out after a long meeting each day. Ours was a business trip, but I can see this as a wonderful place to stay for a pleasure trip as well.

Great Location and Perfect for a Family

  • 5 of 5
We had a great 4 day stay in Ginko Leaf Guest house and it was the perfect apartment for our small family. The outdoor space was just what was needed for the little ones to run around in a safe environment. The apartment was clean and well laid out, with everything you need. A home away from home. Thanks Mark for everything, we will come and stay next time we're in town.

Everything was very clean and the furniture was sturdy, comfortable, and in good repair. The back yard was very beautiful: A shady urban oasis. The neighbor was quiet and felt safe -- we walked around in the evening and there were plenty of other people about, jogging, walking dogs, etc. Although there is a train section a few blocks away, we decided to drive our car downtown, as Lakeshore Drive was only a few minutes away (by car) and it's a quick and scenic route into downtown (which was only 6 miles away).

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We had never been to Chicago before, and this was the perfect place to stay! A 15 minute walk to Wrigley, 25 minute walk to Lincoln Park zoo. 5 minute walk to the "L". We have 2 kids under the age of 4, and the accommodations were perfect for our family. The restaurants in the neighborhood offer everything you can imagine! Our personal favorite was Batter and Berries breakfast and lunch located on Lincoln. Prices are just right and the quality will blow you away. Gino's is less than a block down the street and Muskies is around the corner. I could probably write another 4-5 paragraphs, but I will end here. Come and enjoy Chicago, and stay here! Worth every penny!

Weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5
This is our second stay at this property. We have found the apt to be in neat and orderly and central to the city and activities we wanted to do. The owners could not be nicer and were quite helpful with city parking and accommodating our small dog.
I would recommend the property to people who are looking for a homier atmosphere versus a hotel room when visiting the city. The yard is quite lovely and would be great during the spring and summer for outdoor eating and activity. Beds and furniture are comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. All the amenities of home!!!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5
We visited Chicago with our 3 sons in late July, and were very happy about the apartment. The service minded landlord was conveniently living in the same building, and the neighborhood was really nice. We parked our car right on the street, and made use of go-as-you please tickets on the L-train, which is conveniently located a few blocks away. We appreciated the opportunity to use the back yard and felt safe and comfortable.

The apartment is centrally located in the Lakeview neighborhood. A true Chicago neighborhood filled with small shops, ethnic restaurants and good public transportation. This neighborhood is car optional. The apartment is about 1 mile south of Wrigley Field and one Mile west of the wonderful Lakefront parks. It is 2 blocks from the Brown Line elevated train(the El) to downtown and the museums. There are always cabs for hire just outside your front door and the shops and restaurants all with in walking distance. So no mater what has brought you to Chicago you will be centrally located to take in a ball game enjoy the beach or spend a day exploring downtown and all the museums.

If you do come by car we provide parking stickers which allow you to street park close by.

Our 1st floor apartment is a classic vintage apartment fully equipped ready to be your home during your Chicago stay.

Other Activities: Take in a ball game at the 'Friendly confines of Wrigley Field'!

Free Lincoln Park Zoo is only 1.5 miles from the apartment. A really great zoo with conservatory gardens.

Our incredible lake front is just 1 mile due east. A great destination for a day of sun and people watching.

Our neighborhood is made up of single family homes,apartments and small shops and restaurants. The buildings range in age from new to over 100 years old. A walk through the neighborhood is a architectural tour of Chicago buildings.

Golf: Waveland Golf Course is a 9 hole golf course located right on our lake front. A really wonderful round of golf!
