We have lived in the Old Town/Lincoln Park/downtown area for 18 years. The apartment you'll be renting is a garden apartment in our single-family home.

It has gorgeous hardwood floors, a new kitchen with granite countertops, a remodeled bathroom, and a gorgeous picture window that floors the living room with light.

We live upstairs, so we'll be there to help with restaurant recommendations, directions and advice on seeing the sights.

Think of us as your personal tour guide and concierge service!

Jamie purchased this apartment in 2002

Ten years ago we were driving through the neighborhood when we spotted the home of our dreams. We are urbanites at heart, but we wanted a single-family home that offered the charm of old Chicago but was close the beating heart of the city. This place had it all!

You can walk to everything. Every morning we hop on our bikes and rides through the zoo to Lake Michigan and up the shoreline to our office in the Loop.

In the mornings you can grab coffee at the corner Starbucks or walk through historic Old Town to one of the three bakeries nearby.

If you're traveling on business, you can be at your downtown meeting within five to 10 minutes by cab or 15 to 20 minutes by 'L'.

In short, if you're looking for a cozy apartment that is 30 to 50 percent less expensive than a hotel and allows you to live like one of the natives, this is it!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We have been staying at VRBO homes for 10+yrs...this was the best place we have ever rented. This apartment is beyond fabulous. Perfect location. Excellent neighborhood. Incredible owners. We have already asked to reserve for the same time next year. We hesitated to write review because we don't want word to get out of this perfect get-a-way.

Quaint Place in a Great Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5
Just back from a girls' trip for two baseball games in Chicago. Could not have picked a better place to stay!! Clean, lovely, and exactly as described...in a fantastic neighborhood, too. We felt right at home. Quick walk to the L and plenty of food/bars in the area to allow us to stay close to the apartment. Riding bikes through the Lincoln Park Zoo and around Lincoln Park on the bikes provided by the owners was icing on the cake. The property owners gave suggestions for places to see and things to do and were so responsive. They made our trip so easy! We'll be back!

Super Apartment!

  • 5 of 5
we booked this apartment for a long weekend in Chicago. Everything was perfect. Jamie was so helpful with directions and so nice to have everything ready for us when we arrived. The bicycles were great for touring Lakshore Drive...just a few blocks away. This apartment was so clean and well appointed..and HUGE! it is really like having a suite at a fancy hotel. The kitchen has a convection/microwave -- perfect for re-heating that leftover deep dish Chicago Pizza! we ate our on the patio with a glass of wine. The location is convenient to everything and the neighborhood is clean and safe. The El stop is only 4 blocks away. I would definitely recommend this fantastic apartment to anyone who wants to experience the real Chicago life.

The photos do not do justice to this really nice, clean apartment. Great location. Easy to get bus or other transportation. And Jamie was so friendly and helpful. The Old Town neighborhood was really fun. Everyone we came in contact with was so freindly, felt like we lived there. I would definitely recommend this apartment. You will feel at home. And thanks Jamie for the coats ~~ it was a little colder than we had expected. It was our first time in Chicago, and we truly loved this beautiful, clean and friendly city. We will be back.

We felt safe and secure from the very first day in this cozy, comfortable, clean and thoughtfully equipped 1,200 sq ft ground-floor apartment in Old Town, with the owners living above. This recently refurbished, lovely place is roomy, affordable, and the owners made it feel like being at home. The listing description is spot on, the photos accurately show how it looks inside and the owners are very responsive and caring. It’s close to the heart of the city, where we walked to/from most days, and when we needed to ride, we walked a short block to hail a cab. We also enjoyed being Just a few blocks from Lake Michigan and Lincoln Park, and the Brown Line. It was so easy to get around and was great not having a rental car. You will love this place!
