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.

About The Owner

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

This was exactly what we were hoping to find.

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property as a gathering for several extended family members for my niece's wedding. The neighborhood was lovely with elegant and unique homes. The pictures actually don't do justice to the house. It is expansive and comfortable. We appreciated the cleanliness and the owner's responsiveness to our questions and requests. We had easy access to public transportation and found ample parking on the street. The place was clean and very homey. We wished we could have stayed longer. Next time we will. We recommend this property highly.

LOVE THIS HOUSE!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 8 stayed in this house for a family reunion (with grandma and my adult children and their significant others). Everything about it was perfect. It is roomy, great location in a terrific neighborhood, and convenient to everything.
We loved the spacious kitchen/family room. It had everything we needed. The bedrooms were all comfortable and the master bath is amazing. Also, the backyard is large with two great decks. Matt, the owner is great. We all loved this house and hope to stay here again. Honestly, I wish I could purchase this house!

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.
