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.

Felt like Home

  • 5 of 5

We were 5 adults and a 2-year-old staying in the house. It didn't feel ever feel cramped and I felt like we all had our own space. There were even children's books and games already in the house for my son to discover. The beds were comfortable and the house was clean.and most of what we needed was easy enough to find in a drawer or closet.

The house was within walking distance of a couple of El lines and since didn't have a car, parking wasn't an issue.

The only negative that I can think to mention is that there wasn't a sufficient supply of toilet paper (nothing more than what was on the roll when we all arrived), but Walgreens was right around the corner so it was easy enough to re-stock.

While I didn't meet Bridget in person, she was friendly, helpful and responsive to text messages. I would certainly recommend this place.

Great place to stay while in Chicago.

  • 5 of 5

Jeff met us at the home and graciously welcomed us 5 adults. The house was perfect for us with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Pictures of the home are spot on. The home was neat & tidy. Plenty of towels. Being able to do laundry at the house was a plus, we did purchase laundry soap. Location was great. Near restaurants, Lincoln Park, convenience stores, theater, not too far from the subway/train stop. Communication with Bridget was terrific. There wasn't any shampoo (plenty of conditioner though) and we did have to purchase more toilet paper. If we go back to Chicago again, I would definitely stay here again.

The perfect place to stay while visiting Chicago!!

  • 5 of 5

This was absolutely a perfect place to stay. We totally loved it. The location could not have been any better; the place was very clean, well equipped and the beds were very comfortable. We cannot say enough good things about it. Definitely will try to book this again on our next visit.

Great location! Classic updated Chicago 2-flat apartment.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend--Bridget was helpful and friendly. The location is about as good as you can get. The apartment was perfect for us--the bedrooms are small, but the kitchen and baths are updated tastefully and there's plenty of room in the living and dining room space. Easy walking to restaurants, theatres, the el. We'd happily stay again.

Bridget and her home made our visit memorable

  • 5 of 5

My stay here was perfect, Bridget was a great host, met us on arrival, friendly and helpful. Mid vacation we locked ourselves out of the home, she came round with a spare key within the hour - exceptional service.

As to the home, a brilliant location, well furnished, comfortable beds and a pleasant deck. We were in Chicago for my sons graduation and had family members fly in to Chicago from the UK, The 6 of us were very comfortable. So much better than 4 hotel rooms!

We are looking forward to staying here again in the future.

Lovely condo in great neighborhood!

  • 4 of 5

Four adults and a preschooler stayed here for 4 nights. The condo is very clean and well-equipped. There were plenty of dishes and towels---and even "bedsides" for the little one. The bedrooms are small but comfortable. One bathroom is small with a small sink which was partially blocked by a cabinet above it. We could not use the garage---it was too tight for our rental car (premium size), and sometimes we had to park a few blocks away. There is a place to make short stops in front of the condo (near a fire hydrant), and that was convenient for unloading people---and stuff! Bridget was very nice, and she did provide neighborhood parking stickers to place on the car each evening. The front steps are narrow, and they were slippery when wet. The tot lot about a block away was fun......and several larger playgrounds are nearby. Lincoln Park has a great zoo nearby.....and a great Nature Museum...great restaurants, shops, Saturday morning Farmer's Market...... a great neighborhood for walks, and not far for a walk/run along Lakeshore Drive. This is a lovely urban condo in a great location! Thanks--our family enjoyed a great stay!
