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.

Fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at this property. The home itself was bright, lovely, and super clean. We were in town to visit family and this was a perfect home base for us. Cindy and John went above and beyond as hosts and our stay was very comfortable. My only warning to any noise-sensitive folks is that there are train tracks nearby, and we did hear freight train whistles coming through at night sometimes, but our baby slept fortunately slept through them! We'd stay again in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a great review. I have to laugh about the trains as we have become so accustom to them that we don't notice them until our grandsons are around and say "It's a train! It's a train!" Thanks again.

Quaint, clean, cozy, and charming!

  • 5 of 5

We were close enough to Chicago to get to our events and escape the hustle bustle of the city at the end of a busy day. Quiet neighborhood with restaurants, groceries, and dry goods very close by!

A cozy well kept property, with great location.

John and Cindy provide a clean and we'll maintained property close to Chicago, the south suburbs and northwest Indiana. They are very responsive to all questions and concerns. We spent a month and felt very comfortable. Thanks to them for a great stay!
