The interior of the unit is grand & open. The living room, dining area & kitchen over look the tree tops through the seven large windows. The finishing touch in the entertainment area is the Italin marble fireplace.

Michigan Avenue (Magnificient Mile)with all of it's exquisite boutiques, Water Tower Place,the Hancock Building, Oak Street, Oak Street Beach, all with in a 15 minute train line on the Union Pacific train which is only 6 blocks away. The Red line will take you to Wrigley Field, Lincoln Park Zoo & down town as well.

This condo is very inviting and relaxing. It was well equipped and a very nice layout.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed five nights. Everyone had their own bedroom which is not always easy to find. The kitchen was great for morning breakfast before we started our day. Loved the open spacing of the kitchen, living room and dinning area. The private garage is a very nice bonus. We were in town to visit family and would certainly come back again.

Great place to stay and great week in Chicago

  • 5 of 5

Excellent North Chicago accommodations. Location was very good and for the six adults in our group a nice walk to the subway. Red line subway takes you right downtown and drops off right at Wrigley Field.

Only three minor easy to correct issues with the unit, need a new micro wave oven and up grade dishes to be microwave friendly and a few more drinking glasses would be nice.

Overall excellent place to stay, easy to get to, Ross (on site manager) very helpful and very spacious.

Perfect Chicago Get-A-Way

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were able to rent out the entire building for the weekend! Ross (the building manager) was a gracious host and couldn't have been easier to work with. If you are looking for a chicago experience, this is the perfect home! Minutes from Wrigley field and lakeshore dr.

Wonderful space for family

  • 4 of 5

The living area was more spacious that it appeared in the pictures. Bedrooms were nice sized and closets were great.

Beds were very comfortable and the bedding was nice. Loved the natural light in the dining area - we played games here every night after we got back from our days activities.

The kitchen is very nicely laid out, appliances are great. Limited pots/pans for cooking.

There were no facial tissues or paper towels - but we made do without.

Grocery store and train station were within 15 minutes walk - very convenient!

Having a manager onsite was wonderful - Ross was very accommodating.

It was great for our family of 5 adults - I would stay here again!
