About Bridget Dougherty

About Us: Bridget has owned this vintage Victorian building for more than 20 years. We like to travel and very much seek out and enjoy staying in furnished suites. That was and still is our inspiration. We are a family of 5 who live in Chicago. We take a lot of pride in our business, in the building. We are available and happy to help make your stay a delight! We love Chicago, we want to share it, and we hope you will love Chicago too!

There are times we need to put a higher priority into guests checking in and staying with us compared with e-mails. Please be patient with us...It is top priority that guests feel comfortable and glad to be staying in our units.

As a small company, there is always a give-and-take with being on site as well as being at the computer. Still, we strive for good customer service all around. Again, our goal is for our guests to be delighted with their Chicago stay.

Why Bridget Dougherty chose Chicago

This property is a nice, vintage building that adds historical value to the neighborhood and to Halsted St. The transportation is terrific and easy for commuting! Neighbors are friendly. There is so much to do and this location is very centrally located in Chicago.

What makes this condo unique

The Victorian front, especially the stained glass windows got Bridget's immediate attention. There is a very warm feel on the property and the backyard is charming. It is also walking distance to TWO el lines! The Brown Line Armitage El stop and the Red Line North Ave. El stop are walking distance. All of the shops and restaurants on Armitage and Halsted are very convenient as well.

Great home and location!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 5 days/4 nights at this Lincoln Park property with my niece and a friend for a graduation gift. We really loved the elegance and coziness of the space. Felt homey and spacious while being in a really great location accessible to great shopping and restaurants steps away. We enjoyed renting bikes from nearby Divvy kiosks (they are everywhere around town) and riding through Lincoln Park all the way to the museum districts via the Lakefront park system. Uber rides were super easy and cheap on the hotter days and night time. We'll be staying there again for sure. Bridget was great to meet and work with on a couple questions we had during our stay.

Wow, wow, wow!

  • 5 of 5

Five girlfriends and myself spent a long weekend at this propert. Location is ideal, house is phenomenal and Bridgit was so so helpful.

We were late to arrive but it wasn't an issue, Bridgit still gave us all the info we needed on the surround areas. The house was clean and spacious, within walking distance of everything you need and only a short Uber to downtown.

Would stay again in a heartbeat.

Thanks!!!

Clean, comfortable, and welcoming in a charming Chicago neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Halsted Suites while in Chicago for a college graduation. The condo was just as Bridget described in the listing. Bridget was on site taking care of some spring gardening in the back - helping to make the back patio welcoming and lovely. Parking in this residential neighborhood is as challenging as parking anywhere else in Chicago - and the owner does her best to disclose this in the information provided. We used SpotHero to park very inexpensively under the El just a few blocks away.

Six of us stayed in the condo for three nights. We found the condo to be clean and well-maintained. Bridget responded quickly to our requests for help when we couldn't figure out the TV! The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had all of the supplies we would need. At this condo - you are within walking distance of many local businesses, coffee shops, restaurants, and bars. Public transportation is readily available which we used to get to our events downtown.

We will highly recommend this charming gem of a place to stay to our friends and family. When we're back in town - we'll definitely try to book again!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was as advertised. All linens were clean, and everything was spacious and comfortable for the 6 of us. The area is really convenient, and we enjoyed our stay. Only complaints would be that a lot of the kitchen pans and other cookware looked pretty beat up after a lot of use, the second bathroom is a little tight (the medicine cabinet sticks out and makes it hard to use the sink without spilling water on the floor), and I had a little trouble getting in touch with the owner on a few occasions. Overall though, everyone had a wonderful experience. Thanks.
