Evanston House Rental Photos and Description
3 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathroom (Sleeps 7)

Hillberry House is your family home away from home! Fully furnished and equipped and just 13 miles north of the Chicago Loop, 2 miles from Northwestern University, less than 1 mi to the CTA and Metra trains and 1.5 miles from Evanston's glorious Lake Michigan beaches! The property has 3 large bedrooms sleeping 7, 1.5 newly remodeled bathrooms, fully equipped eat-in kitchen, separate dining room and large, bright living room.

Master bedroom: 1 queen bed

Second bedroom: 1 double bunk bed with full size double on bottom and twin on top bunk.

Third bedroom: 2 twin beds

There is a small unfenced, shared yard/garden area with garden swing and multiple parks and playgrounds within a 5 min walk.

Whether you are relocating to the area or just visiting, our property provides all the amenities of home including fully equipped kitchen, linens, in-unit washer/dryer, dishwasher, cable TV, internet and even a hairdryer and iron! Stay with us and travel light, we have made every effort to provide all the comforts of home. If you have the kids with you we can provide co-sleeping crib or toddler mattress, toddler bed-guard, highchair or booster seat and even toys for the little ones. Just let us know the age of your children and preferences and let us ready the house for you! As we have recently made an international move with our young family, we know the challenge of traveling with kids.

Our family relocated last year from the south of England to the Chicago area. My husband and I are both Americans but we lived in the UK for nearly 8 years and both our boys were born there. We have traveled quite a bit through Europe and enjoy getting to know people from all cultures and backgrounds. We look forward to the opportunity to meet new people as we welcome them to Hillberry House!

Allison Maguire purchased this house in 2012

Evanston is a vibrant community and living here is like living in a city within a city. It has a semi-urban feel without feeling too developed and really bridges the divide between Chicago and the rest of the North Shore communities. Being a university town creates many opportunities for cultural events including art exhibits, lectures and theater. After settling on Evanston as the area in which we would like to buy we searched for a short term furnished rental in the area with no luck. Even pricier corporate rentals were in short supply and these were not very family-friendly. So an idea was born and we set out to find a property which would allow us to provide a family-friendly, fully equipped short term rental experience for other families like ours.

Our holiday stay in this property was very comfortable. The rooms are really spacious with all the necessary amenities. A safe home for medium and large sized families. Property is well maintained and clean. The location is also admirable. We would love to use it over and over again if the need arises.

My wife and three boys (ages 6, 4 and 2) stayed at this property for six weeks this summer, as we were between residences and needed temporary lodging. The residence has been renovated very nicely and is in excellent condition. It is within walking distance of both the Metra and CTA Purple Line in south Evanston, which made it very convenient for commuting purposes, or if you wanted to head in to Chicago for leisure. The owners were wonderful and very accommodating, and were also extremely responsive to any questions or concerns. Overall, it was a great experience, and I would highly recommend the property.
