Why Gerry Garcia chose Lake View
Here's what recent guests have to say about our Guest Home: Our experience with Gerry was top-notch! He was a consummate host and provided an easy check-in with a large clean and stylish living space. The location was perfect... I would definitely stay at Gerry's place again! - March 2018 Guests, St. Patrick's Weekend Gerry was very responsive and helpful leading up to the trip. His place is WONDERFUL - such a perfect representation of Chicago vintage with modern amenities. This is an awesome location to enjoy a quiet Chicago neighborhood, but still be close to transit for exploring. HIGHLY recommend. - Jan 2018 Guests, Family Weekend This is an amazing property. A 1920 Graystone with a great location and outstanding amenities. Gerry and David provided the highest level of hospitality and are gracious hosts. Their attention to detail is impeccable and their knowledge of the neighborhood made our stay wonderful. The house is furnished with everything we needed and more. Ample kitchenware and supplies for cooking, plenty of dishes and silverware for a large group. Comfortable beds for a great night sleep and plenty of room to play games or just visit. The house is located just 2 blocks from many great restaurants, bars, coffee shops and the Brown Line L station. Gerry provides street parking passes for our car, so park the car and explore the neighborhood on foot. Gerry and David helped make out family Christmas a success. - December 2017 Guests, New Year's Holiday Gerry's place is the best Airbnb house I've stayed.

We came for the marathon as a family and this place was spectacular! Gerry was excellent and we will surely be back.
The property is a beautiful greystone building that is 5 blocks from Wrigley field, as well as close to numerous restaurants, bars, and cafes. The property is very well maintained with welcome amenities such as fruit basket, chocolates, and various coffee options. It has a lovely deck that looks onto the garden in the backyard. Gerry, our host, was very attentive and offered parking stickers for our car. There was plenty of on-street parking. It was a wonderful stay.
If you want the quintessential Chicago neighborhood feel that allows you to live like a local with access and ease, book this place immediately. Very close to the Brown L and not far from the Red, shops and restaurants and walking distance to icons like Wrigley Field! Gerry and David the owners could not have been more accommodating. Their place was impeccably clean with every detail thought of to make your stay effortless. It's a gorgeous example of a Chicago dwelling with owners that exemplify Midwestern hospitality. Stay here and you'll have the trip of your life!
A charming brownstone with a small deck overlooking a beautifully landscaped backyard, complete with calming water feature, this rental really was above and beyond. It was in a lovely, quiet neighborhood, close to the subway, a grocery store, and lots of fun shops, restaurants, etc. (Don't miss the quirky, local bowling alley/billiard bar!) It was impeccably cared for...very clean, tastefully decorated, and extremely well-equipped with dishes, cookware, glassware. We appreciated the coffee/tea selection and the chilled sparkling water in the fridge upon arrival. Our host was so warm and welcoming, and went above and beyond to accommodate our luggage before and after checkout. We would love to stay here again, and highly recommend this vacation rental!
Doesn't get better than this!!!
This is my family's 2nd year staying in Gerry's home and there will be several more years to come!!! Every year my family meets from several different states to have a "Cubs Weekend" and 2 years ago we were lucky enough to find Gerry and his beautiful home for a place to stay. We loved it so much we did it again this year...at this point our family weekend wouldn't be the same if we weren't at Gerry's. I can't say enough about the property, the location, the cleanliness, the little touches here and there that make this place amazing. I've never been in vacation home that was cleaner, there is so much space, and it's stocked with coffee :)
A GORGEOUS back garden to gaze upon (with a calming water fountain) while having morning coffee or an evening drink is my favorite part. But above all else is the hospitality and kindness from Gerry...he is a phenomenal host, can't be beat.
Excellent and Super
