Great Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Ourselves and two couples spent four nights at the guest house on Newport while visiting for a wedding. Great house and location to enjoy the neighborhood loaded with shops and restaurants, and close to the red line for trips downtown. Couldn't ask for better accommodations, and Teri was terrific to deal with answering any questions. Would give more than 5 stars if we could. Highly recommend a stay here. Randy

Owner's Response: Oh Randy! More than five stars?! You make me blush---thank you! I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay in Wrigleyville. It's an amazing neighborhood--chalked full of wonderful restaurants, pubs, live theatre and music---can't go wrong here! I know you spent most of your time with wedding activities---hope to have you return as there is so much more to explore! Teri

Perfect location! Very comfortable home with lots of charm. Would highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of three couples and this home was a perfect size for our group. We just loved the location. The home is situated in the middle of to two different "L" train lines that are both in walking distance. We used both lines during our stay, very convenient, easy to get into downtown Chicago. The reason we were visiting the area was to see a concert being held at Wrigley Field and that was in walking distance as well. Another big plus. The neighborhood has restaurants, shops, and grocery stores which we really appreciated. The house is decorated with beautiful and unique art work that we enjoyed looking at during our stay. We had some great weather while we were there so we took advantage of the wonderful back patio area with the beautiful landscaping. And Teri was a real pleasure to work with, she was very attentive. She made the whole process stress free. Thanks Teri!

Owner's Response: It sure 'IS' nice to be able to walk to everything--especially Wrigley Field. Nothing worse than the traffic on a game or concert night--no one wants to deal with that! As for the home & my paintings that you enjoyed 'looking at' ----rather unexpected or maybe even a bit peculiar, but never boring, right? Makes you wonder about 'ME' now doesn't it! LOL! Hope to have you back in the near future! Teri

Beautiful accommodation in the heart of it all.

  • 5 of 5

We gathered here from Ohio, Colorado, bogota Colombia and Australia.

Ages 22-65.

The house is comfortable and very clean. The sheets and beds are super comfortable.

Teri was extremely accommodating allowing us to check in and out early. It helped us out so much. She was also on the ball with communicating.

Wrigley field is down the street as well as lots of

restaurants and bars. The area is very safe.

The kitchen is well equipped. You could really cook anything here. Outdoor area is also well equipped with seating and a BBQ. The living room has

Comfortable seating with extra sofas for a quick nap.

We felt like we were at home in this beautiful house.

Would highly recommend.

Thanks Teri ❤️

The experience with Teri from first contact through our departure was flawless. Most importantly, there were no surprises. The house is clean, exactly as described and very well located in the lovely Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago. The house is well stocked and ready to receive guests. I would highly recommend for groups or families.

Owner's Response: John, How nice! I do my best to make sure all those 't's are crossed---and no one likes surprises , so I try to keep those to a minimum. Ha ha! Glad you enjoyed your stay and the neighborhood--such a lovely area of the city and so much to do! You didn't stay long enough to really take it all in, so you'll need to start planning another trip back! Teri

About Teri Smith

First thing you need to know? I still pick up the phone, so if you're interested is $aving $$$ on service fees, want to know who you're renting from or have some questions you want answered right away; give me a call! I'd love to hear from you!

Moving on....

Someone once told me 'Find a job you love & never work a day in your life' Glad I took that advice! Running Chicago Guest House was the BEST decision I ever made in my life!

Looking back, I probably should have taken a lot more good advice; guess it's never too late! :o)

Teri Smith purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Teri Smith chose Wrigleyville

This is not your typical cookie-cutter rental; my personality & style shines through! My goal has always been to have my Guests experience the sense of having arrived ‘home’ when they walk through the door---to feel as comfortable & relaxed here in Chicago as they do their own home.

Each time I read another testimonial; I think to myself. Mission Accomplished! Thank you to all my Guests for saying so!!

What makes this apartment unique

The Guest House on Newport Avenue has two apartments, each floor can be rented separately or rent them together for larger gatherings--up to 18. It's great to all be under one roof, without being on top of one another--the three separate spaces offer privacy when you need it. And best of all--the little piece of nature outside the back door. The garden is private & peaceful--perfect place to decompress, relax and enjoy.

Home to our beloved Cubs. Whether you get to see a game or not, you don't want to miss taking a stroll over to the corner of Clark and Addison to see one of baseball’s oldest ball parks nestled among the historic greystone buildings that make up this charming neighborhood—a beautiful sight!


Spend the day shopping Southport Avenue’s trendy boutiques and Belmont Avenue’s quirky shops and vintage stores for those one of a kind finds!


Live music and dancing for the young and old alike


Comedy & Improv at it’s best--guaranteed a good time!


Tamales to Tiramisu --the dining choices are endless!

Though you may be tempted to never leave the neighborhood, it would be a shame to miss out on all the city has to offer! Jump on either a Brown or Red Line train--either will take you direct to downtown and all of Chicago's attractions!

Or if you're up to the challenge, walk or ride along the spectacular lakefront to downtown. Divvy Bikes are available in the neighborhood and there is really no better way to really see this amazing city! Ride alongside the beautiful boat filled harbors, and through the lush and colorful gardens of Lincoln Park and while you’re there, catch a glimpse of some of the animals at the zoo. And though it’s only a four mile ride, you may enjoy a little energy break at one of the three beach side bistro's along the way! Once downtown, you can park the bike at any of hundreds of stations throughout the city.
