June 2012- Bill & Anne, Maine



Wonderful time here visiting or son who also lives nearby. Today we appreciated your bicycles, used in the neighborhood and to the beach and shore bike path.



This location can’t be beat and the little cottage is a unique home here in the city. Sweet neighborhood!



We like the “village area” & Old Town, Treasure Island for groceries and the shops on Armitage, good old Dunking Donuts at Sedgewick and North and Nookies for breakfast.



June 2012- Jen & Kevin, Hoboken, NJ.



Love your little hidden gem! We were able to walk everywhere as well as get taxis quickly if needed. Enjoyed the availability of the bikes. We fell in love with Chicago. Thanks for your recommendations. Thanks for the well stocked accommodations.



PS-Brunch at Stanley’s was awesome!



July 2012- Jeff, Leah and Sue, Hanover, PA.



We enjoyed our time in Chicago immensely! The cottage was a great “base” for seeing the various areas. We’ll definitely be back. Let us know when the Carriage house is ready for visitors.



July 2012- Katie, Sarah & Theresa, Little Rock, Arkansas



Thanks for having us! We loved the neighborhood & being so close to everything. We ate out every meal but appreciated all the well stocked kitchen, we have cooked here!

Perfect place for a girls getaway- hope to be back soon!

Our first visit to Chicago. A great time we had! This location is perfect for walking to the downtown area. A quiet neighborhood so close to many attractions. We really appreciate all of the information and amenities you have provided. Thank you!





August 2012- Sally & Michael, Bexley, Ohio



From Michael:

We came into town to visit our daughter in Logan Square. It was fun to discover this part of the city. Your place is convenient to many nice areas and restaurants (check out The Rustic House on Halstead) and shopping in the area too. We enjoyed walking the neighborhood.

In addition to the comforts of home, a good vacation residence, like real estate, requires three things: location, location, location! This cottage has it all: A beautiful, quiet and safe neighbourhood; easy access to mass transit; lots of restaurants and shopping nearby. The parking permits that allowed us to park on the street were very much appreciated.

With mass transit conveniently located nearby, we each purchased a 7-day Ventra pass, got on and off the “L” and buses at will, not worrying if we missed a stop or over shot our destination. We recommend doing the Hop On/Hop Off bus to get your bearings in the downtown area.

The Shedd Aquarium was great, but go early as the line ups are quite long later in the day. At the Lincoln Park Zoo, watching the baby lemur and baby gibbon at the primate exhibit and the young gorillas at the African exhibit provided lots of entertainment. The Field Museum was interesting, but requires a large time committment to see it all.

Uncle Julio’s provided a very good Mexican meal for our first night here (a 5-10 minute walk west on W. North Ave.). Marcello's Father and Son Bakery had great Chocolate Chip Macadamia nut cookies and very good coffee. If you have not tried Potbelly for sandwiches, the location on North Clybourn was excellent and the staff very friendly. Other great places to dine at are: Osteria Via Stato, Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria and Chicago Pizza & Oven Grinder Co.

In addition to full bellies, we take home with us, wonderful memories of our time in Chicago!

Comfortable accommodation - great location!

Just spent a week exploring Chicago using this place as a base. it was spacious, full of light, well supplied and quiet. Convenient location close to grocery stores, restaurants, and the brown and red line. Parking was easy to find. (Just watch for street cleaning notices,) We walked to the zoo, the park, and home from the Feld museum, via Grant Park, Millenium Plaza, the Hancock observatory, and Carmine's for a late dinner. The City Pass was well worth it. Tara was thoughtful, calling us one afternoon when we were out to let us know that Con Ed had the power down in the area, and we might want to stop somewhere to eat. Altogether a great trip; we will definitely try to stay here on our next trip to Chicago.

Great apartment for exploring Chicago on foot

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was great - quiet, clean and with everything we needed. We particularly enjoyed it being so cosy and warm to come home to. As the winter was mild we walked most places - Lincoln Park, Magnificent Mile, the Loop, but took advantage of the El when weary! It was nice to have restaurants close by for when we didn't feel like venturing further afield.

Tara was very helpful - emailed and rang to check we had arrived safely and everything was ok.
I had a bit of a panic when she was slow to respond during the booking process - but nearer the time she always responded very quickly and there was no need for me to have worried!

I am always wary about recommending places as people have such different ideas of what is acceptable, but I find it hard to imagine anyone failing to like this property.

Ideal location / great accommodation

  • 5 of 5
This is a well appointed property with character and charm. We stayed there a week and found all the amenities we could ever need.
It was well maintained and located in a quiet and scenic neighbourhood. We were amazed by how quiet it was, being almost in the center of Chicago.
This location is at walking distance to grocery stores and to all of the restaurants and shops on Wells Street and North Avenue. The elevated train station at Sedgwick is just blocks away.
It is an easy stroll to the Magnificent Mile or to the lakeshore.
The owners were very accommodating and helpful. We have already recommended this property to many friends.

Lovely one bedroom in a wonderful part of town. Staying here gave us a feel of what its like to live in Old Town. The apartment was clean and spacious, lots of wonderful natural light. Restaurants in the area were plenty but groceries were close by. We walked lots to see the sights but public transit was easy to get to if you wanted to make things a little speedier. The owners were wonderful and made the transaction easy. Communication was great as any questions or concerns were promptly answered by phone or email. Access to bicycles was wonderful touch as there are so many miles of bike trails in the city. We wouldn't hesitate to go back to this place in future visits. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5
We still talk about this place because we have stayed in the city often to see our kids and it was our best stay yet.It is the best location on a beautiful quiet street. We walked everywhere but also had plenty of room for street parking. The search for just the right place takes a while and we sure landed it with this one. It had it all. It is tastefully decorated, clean, spacious inside, fully equipped, and close to everything we needed. The owner was quick to get back to us on every question we had and provided all the help we needed. We hope to return for our next visit and stay again. What a well kept secret.
