Absolutely Adorable Home

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our girls weekend. The 3 of us found the home to be so clean, comfortable and the location was fantastic. We were able to drive 40 minutes down to Navy Pier on a busy Saturday and 20 minutes the opposite way to TInely Park for a Luke Bryan concert. We enjoyed the Calumet Bakery around the corner every monrning - if you are in this area you have to stop there. Thank you to the owners for having your property on Home Away!

Immaculate and thoroughly professionally run. Nicely designed home, perfect size for 4 adults.

  • 4 of 5

Clean, pleasant, fully stocked with supplies and everything worked well. Only negative is some traffic and train noise at night, which woke us up at times.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your stay. We are so accustomed to the street noise and trains we sometimes forget they exist.

The home was great and just what we needed. Enough space.

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of space for our small group. Easy access to interstates as we did a great deal of coming and going during our stay. Only disappointment was the television situation. We weren't there long hours but late night and early morning it would have been great for access to basic cable television. Or minimally knowing that it wasn't going to be available. We could have planned ahead. Otherwise I would recommend this property to others.
