Owners Jon & Helene have been in hospitality for over 20 years. Jon is a restaurateur & chef, and Helene is an international flight attendant and a former Chicago Architectural Foundation river cruise docent.

Jon Young purchased this apartment in 1997

We have been neighborhood residents for 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.

Guests have immediate access to more than a dozen dining options to fit any budget, pretty sidewalk cafes & hidden backyard garden patios all just a few blocks away on Roscoe Street, as well as unique independently owned retail shops & boutiques (also a Starbucks nearby in a converted former Motorcycle Cafe 'The Ace Cafe').

Within walking distance 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 and canoeing nearby .

The neighborhood is extremely walk-able, upper-middle class and safe, has seen a wave of renovations over the last decade, the neighborhood also boasts 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 super easy and just a half block away there is access to the Belmont Avenue Bus (access to the Red, Brown & Blue Lines), the Western Avenue Bus (Blue Line to Wicker Park/Bucktown & The Loop), plus the Addison Street Bus (direct to Wrigley Field - Home of the Cubs) just four blocks away.

If you visit us in the summer, Wrigley Field is just a 20 - 30 minute walk (about a two miles) through residential neighborhoods and tree lined streets, filled with 100 year old + houses. The guest suite is also located a short walk from our wine bar, Volo. It is beautifully designed w/ an urban chic interior and rustic hidden backyard cabana garden in which we from time to time host weddings.

Additionally, directly across the street from Volo is our 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.

Finally, in warmer months, you & your guests have private access to a beautiful shaded 600 sq. ft. garden patio w/table, chairs, grill & more.

WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
I had an excellent time. This apartment is a great side for a small group to spend the night. It is delightfully easy to get to the city and I would recommend to anyone wanting a fun vacation with all the benefits of downtown Chicago and its outlying areas.

CHARMING CONDO

  • 4 of 5
The condo was attractive and very well equipped in the kitchen. The location was convenient for us and Roscoe village has lots to offer in shopping and dining . The owner met us as we arrived and showed us the unit, he was very helpful and pleasant. It was nice having laundry facilities in the unit and the garden area in the back was a plus. There was a seating area and grill for our use which was a nice touch!

WHAT A GEM!

  • 5 of 5
This place was everything my family of four needed for a week-laundry, clean, well stocked kitchen, well appointed rooms, extra linens, good coffee (!), and more. Loved having the back garden patio. We also really took advantage of the neighborhood and patronized a bunch of the restaurants, including the owner's breakfast spot, Kitsch'n; it was fantastic. The place is small but has everything you need, and really, who wants to spend time inside when you're in Chicago?
The owners have very smartly stripped down their cable package and replaced it with Netflix and Hula, making it easy to watch anything we liked when we got back to the flat in the evenings.
We enjoyed a short drive to the beach, there's a Target and a Whole Foods within a super short drive, and we never had to worry about parking. Will definitely stay here again when we travel to Chicago.
The owners are very accommodating and responsive too.

WONDERFUL STAY IN ROSCOE VILLAGE

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived we were greeted by Jon and he showed us around. My family was excited and we had a great time in Chicago. The condo was a great fit for our family to come back from a long day of sight seeing and shopping to come back and feel like home. Would come back in the future and recommend to stay here.
