The first floor living room has a gas fireplace with new hardwood floors. Enjoy the two sided fireplace in the dining/kitchen area also. The second and third floors have 2 bedrooms and one bath on each level. Each rear bedroom has a large balcony. Laundry is on the lower level. The lower level also features a comfy L shaped sofa to enjoy TV. Window seat also.

This house has lots of rental options: rent one to four bedrooms or the whole house. It is not a condo!! It is a house. If renting rooms, owner will remain on the premise (owner is an avid traveler and will be able to direct you to see the hotspots in Chicago, owner is a trained docent for the Chicago Architecture Foundation and loves to help travelers enjoy Chicago!) Best option is to rent the entire third floor which gives you privacy with 2 bedrooms and an adjoining bath to share. Wonderful balcony off of rear bedroom. Private entrance off the rear balcony. Use of kitchen and living areas too.

Perfect neighborhood location in Chicago's East Lakeview area. Only 3 blocks to Lake Michigan and Lincoln Park.

Nearby restaurants include Yoshis, Mia Francesca's, Socca, Leona's, HB Bistro, Ann Sathers, Jimmy Johns, Starbucks, Caribou Coffee, Jamba Juice, Potbelly's, and many more! Every type of cuisine is within walking distance. Also, walk to Wrigley Field to see the Cubs play or take in a concert. Public transportation is super efficient in this area- buses within a few steps and the L train is only 2 blocks away. Walk to see Blue Man Group too as only 2 blocks away. Nightlife is plentiful. Lots of bars and pub as you get closer to Wrigley Field. Or enjoy a quiet dinner on the rear deck.

I love to travel and use Homeaway properties for my vacations. I have hosted many foreign exchange students from around the world and love welcoming new people into my home.

Donna purchased this house in 1996

Large single family home with 4 levels of living space AND a private back yard with deck. This is not a condo! Very private. This house used to be a three flat (had three 2 bedrooms apartments) and was converted to a single family home in the early 1990's.

It is a single family house that is located only a few blocks from the Lake Michigan and the park. Wrigley Field is just north of the house. When you step outside, the area is filled with shops, great restaurants and super close to public transportation. My rear yard is a perfect oasis in the city.

A Perfect Home in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5
We had the privilege of staying here in July 2014 and could not have been happier with our choice. We had 10 people (6 adults, 3 children, and a baby) getting together for a mini-family reunion, and Donna's home provided all the comforts I was hoping for and more.
Pre checking-in: Donna responded promptly to my many queries so there were no surprises.
Checking-in: Extremely painless. Unfortunately, Donna wasn't able to meet us on our arrival, however, she ensured that alternative arrangements were made in her absence. I arrived in the late afternoon, while my brother and my parents got in later in the evening after surviving a string of delayed flights.
The house: Exactly as described in the listing. We had one car, so the garage was a blessing given the density of the neighborhood. The kitchen was well appointed and spacious, and the living room just as comfortable. The kids had more than enough space for themselves, and so did the adults. No complaints about the bedrooms (2 on the second floor and 2 on the third floor) either - everyone slept soundly.
The location: We ended up using a combination of modes of transportation (car, bus, train, cabs) to and from the sights we visited (Navy Pier, Field Museum, Millennium Park, Lincoln Park Zoo), with stations and stops a short walk away. As for food and drink, the wide range of restaurants right around the corner satisfied all the palates. We must have tried a majority of the neighborhood eateries during our short stay!
Checking-out: Just as painless and checking in.
The house provided the perfect environment for the family to hang out, and for the young cousins to enjoy each other's company. Altogether, a truly memorable stay.
Thanks Donna! We hope to be back again soon.

Great Stay, Owner Very Easy to Work With

  • 5 of 5
Me and nine of my friends stayed in Donna's house, which has one of the best locations in Chicago. Just steps from the nightlife and an easy walk/jog to Lake Michigan and all the outdoor activities one could ask for. Highly recommend. I hope we can stay here again next year.

Great Home/Great Location

  • 5 of 5
We came to Chicago for the Cardinals and Cubs series in early May 2014. We stayed at the house and had a great time. The house had plenty of room and the location is awesome. We parked the vehicle and did not get into it again until we left. I walked to the Lake every morning for some exercise which is a great place for this. There are so many great restaurants and things to do for all ages. We walked to the ball games which was less than a ten minute walk. The neighborhood and location of the house could not have been better. Also, the owner could not have been nicer or accommodating and the deposit was returned in full quickly. When I come to Chicago again this will be the property I book. I highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a getaway in Chicago.

Fantastic character house in perfect location

  • 4 of 5
We were a group of 9 people staying the weekend at this great spot in Wrigleyville. The house was clean and furnished with just about everything we could have needed/asked for. There was more than ample space for all the guests to sleep and the multiple levels allowed for quiet areas if everyone was up mingling on the main floor. We had a great time and really appreciated the friendly hospitality. We would all happily stay in this house again. --Thanks.

Centrally located and full of character!

  • 5 of 5
We were in Chicago for a sailing event at the Chicago Yacht Club, Belmont Center and it was wonderful to be within walking distance! There are tons of great restaurants and bars in the area, so we always had something fun to do after we got off the water. The house itself is lovely and full of character! Great artwork and rooms painted in various colors gives the house life and vibrancy! There is plenty of room for everyone to hang out and also have their own space to decompress and overall we have a wonderful experience!
