Perfect experience

  • 5 of 5

Everything went according to plan. Owners were very responsive and no issues. Place is a bit small, but that was expected and we made it work even with 6 adults (brought 3 air mattresses).

Extremely clean and in great condition

  • 5 of 5

We love renting from Cindy and John. The location is absolutely perfect 40 minutes to the city and close to all my husbands family. This is our second year staying there and will be back again soon.

Surely home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

When I entered Ridge Road I recognized the property immediately.

It is clean, well maintained and properly organized.

Cindy and John are doing a great job.

They are quick and clear in communication.

On a trip to Chicago for a 10k run in Grant Park, I drove to Hegewisch train station and took the train from thereon.

Of course I did part of my preparation in Lansing.

Plenty shopping opportunities at close range.

Gary (IN) is nearby, where we visited the house in which Michael Jackson and his siblings were born and raised.

My wife and I really enjoyed the stay.

Quite impressed.

  • 5 of 5

The house was excellent. It was clean, well kept, well maintained. It had everything we needed and then some.

The owners were great to work with, good people.

We would access Chicago via the Metra Station at Homewood, just 15 minutes away.

And there was plenty of things to do/see locally, and plenty of nice restaurants near by.

We would definitely recommend this house.

Landed at OHare, drove to Oak Forest and enjoyed the rehearsal picnic. Short ride to Lansing - seamless access to delightful, clean and bright home. wedding was at County Line Orchard just over the border in Indiana - close enough ride after a fantastic wedding celebration. Weekend was too short - thanks for the hospitality.

Sweet South Suburban Santuary

  • 5 of 5

Although it got to -5 degrees outside, it was toasty and beautiful inside. SUPER clean and well stocked home. It had everything we needed, plus the AWESOME ceiling heater fan in the bathroom AND the foot heater by the kitchen sink! Genius. I am asking for the ceiling heater for my Anniversary and we live in the Houston area!! If looking for deeelicious pizza, Aurelio's in Homewood and Giordano's are among the best. Easy access to expressways to family in Homewood and Tinley Park. The Chicago Botanical Gardens were amazing and a nice respite from the frigid outdoors. When visiting again, when it is well above the freezing point, we will stay here.
