HISTORICAL HOME MINUTES FROM DOWNTOWN

Chicago House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5/6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths (Sleeps 12)

Our Historical home is set on a huge landscaped lot, perfect for entertaining or relaxing on one of the decks. Built is 1958, this home retains a lot of its old fashion charm with the right mix of modern conveniences. We are located in between O’Hare Airport and Downtown. The Harlem “EL” station and the Norwood Park Metra stop are a short walk away and both will take you downtown in about 20 minutes. You will be close enough to downtown to enjoy it but leave the hustle and bustle to retire in this quiet oasis. We have plenty of great restaurants and shops are within walking or a short drive away. Woodfield and Old Orchard Malls are close, as well as Muvico Premier Movie Theater. In addition to the great location, our neighborhood is filled with character. The houses have retained the detail and charm of from their historical beginnings. We are surrounded by parks and playgrounds, providing loads of entertainment for children. And feel free to walk around the neighborhood without a care; it’s the safest part of Chicago.

Five bedrooms will comfortably sleep 10; a pull out sofa bed will sleep an additional 2 people. All three of the bathrooms are large and include showers. In addition, the master bath has a 2 person Jacuzzi tub. We provide a fully equipped kitchen and stocked with food or catered meals upon request and extra fee. The formal dining area is perfect for an elegant family dinner. Lush couches in the entrance way and living room are perfect for lounging to read a book or watch a movie.

I will assure you that this home will exceed all of your expectations without the price of a hotel.

This has been our Family house since 1978. It started as a typical brick bungalow with just two bedrooms and one bathroom. In 2000, our home underwent a major reconstruction which completely rearranged the layout, giving it an open floor plan. The 'Circle' is a close knit neighborhood and just about all of the neighbors have been there as long as we have.

We have been renting the house on a vacation rental basis since 2010 and its been a great experience. We have met many nice and interesting people.

The Owner purchased this house in 1977

50s crowd

When I looked for a place to gather to celebrate a "reunion," I found the perfect place. Our "home away from home" for a few days was indeed that - a HOME. Accommodations were excellent and met all of our needs. The owner was very helpful, too.

Beautiful house in beautiful neighborhood

  • 5 of 5
We came to Chicago with many family members for our daughter's wedding. This home was in a nice location and close enough to Logan Square where our daughter lives. The house is well appointed with all the amenities of a family home. A couple of the mattresses were a little worn but all in all it was an unbeatable house at a very reasonable price.

HIstorical home

  • 4 of 5
We found the house to be as exactly as described. It was located in a very lovely suburb,minutes from the major highways. It was clean and very well furnished. the large backyard and decks added to the ambiance. Rooms were a good size with comfortable beds. Kitchen was large and provided ample sitting area.
Only slight negative was the noise from the overhead planes (which after awhile you got used to it) and the traffic on I-90 if you are driving.

Marathon Review

  • 4 of 5
Very happy with this rental. Three families rented the house for the Chicago Marathon. We used the L Train as our mode of transportation and it worked great for us. The house was clean and comfortable. Nice amenity was the washer and dryer. Would be happy to rent this property again.

Great place for a crowd

  • 4 of 5
This was a perfect place for a crowd. Much roomier than expected - the pics do not convey how large the house is. Easy access to transport - takes about 40 minutes to get downtown. House very clean on arrival. Owner of the house was not the easiest to get hold of via email, but did return all my phone calls. Neighborhood very nice and I would recommend this house to friends and family.
