About Jon Young

Owners Jon & Helene have been in hospitality for over 20 years. Jon is a restaurateur & chef, and Helene is an international flight attendant and was formerly a Chicago Architectural Foundation river cruise docent for over 13 years.

Jon Young purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Jon Young chose Chicago

We have been neighborhood residents for over 15 years and have not only enjoyed raising a family while seeing a positive transformation of Chicago during that time, but also of the Roscoe Village neighborhood and its amenities. We own and operate two award-winning and acclaimed restaurants here, and realized we had the ideal setting for a bed & breakfast style vacation rental conveniently located right in the heart of our community.

What makes this apartment unique

While staying at Sopra Volo (means 'above Volo' in Latin), guests have immediate access to more than a dozen dining options to fit any budget, pretty sidewalk cafes & hidden backyard garden patios, as well as unique independently owned retail shops & boutiques (also a Starbucks on our block housed in a converted former Motorcycle Cafe 'The Ace Cafe').

Within blocks there are family friendly parks, a baseball diamond, public pool, and a park district field house (offering tennis courts & a basketball court), as well as kayaking nearby.

The neighborhood is extremely walk-able, upper-middle class and safe, has seen a wave of renovations over the last decade, and just two blocks away there is a 100+ year old Pencil Factory that has been converted to lofts, with original factory-worker row houses still intact located on adjacent blocks.

Public transportation is easy from Sopra Volo and includes the Damen bus just steps out the front door (a direct 10 minute ride to the heart of Bucktown & Wicker Park), Chicago's famous 'EL' train at the Paulina stop just three blocks away, plus the Belmont or Addison (direct to Wrigley Field- Home of the Cubs) Street Bus just two blocks away. Nearby daily bike rentals also available!

If you visit us in the summer, Wrigley Field is just a 20 minute walk (about a mile and a half) through residential neighborhoods and tree lined streets, filled with 100 year old plus houses.

Finally, the guest suite is located directly above the acclaimed wine bar, Volo. It is beautifully designed with an urban chic interior and rustic hidden backyard cabana garden in which we from time to time host weddings. Additionally, the unit is located directly across the street from the celebrated casual brunch spot, Kitsch'n on Roscoe. Decked out in colorful 1970's retro dinette sets, and filled with assorted retro and vintage decor, Kitsch'n has been featured in Bon Apetit Magazine and on $40 a Day with Rachel Ray.

A must if looking to stay near wrigley !

  • 5 of 5

The stay here was everything I wanted and much more! The apartment slept 6 comfortably and could have slept even more! The apartment was cute and cozy, kitchen was furnished with everything you could possibly need. The owner was on site in the wine bar Volo downstairs and was so nice making sure we were comfortable and let us know not to hesitate if we needed anything.

There was also gift cards to both Volo wine bar and Kitsch'n which were both right downstairs . Volo wine bar we went and had a round of drinks and wish we had time to try their menu definitely going to go back and try. Kitsch'n we went for hangover brunch and they have the biggest Mimosa's and best Chicken and Waffles with a honey jalapeño butter ( I wanted to take the butter home in my purse haha!)

All in all a must stay ! Also going to go back to eat at both restaurants!!!

Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We were recently fortunate enough to meet up with our kids in Chicago, to enjoy some baseball, shopping and fabulous dinners. Roscoe Village appealed to us as a location as it was near the L, Wrigleyville. Jon's property was perfect! Great location and it was exactly as discribed. We wanted for nothing and Jon was very hands on.

Hopefully we are back to Chicago again soon and this great apartment is available! 😊

Comfortable rental in heart of charming Roscoe Village, perfect for 2 couples or a family

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our family! You can't beat the location, in the heart of the ecclectic and great neighborhood of Roscoe Village. We were able to walk out the door and grab breakfast from a cute cafe (lots to choose from) and were also able to walk to a few fun local bars for beers at night. Everyone in this neighborhood was friendly, parking was easy to find, and we felt very safe. Jon was great and provided us with recommendations of Chicago activities, plus some coupons for free drinks and a meal! Thank you! The accommodations were comfortable and the kitchen had all the amenities we required. We would def stay here again if we came back to Chicago! Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Great place in a wonderful area!

  • 5 of 5

Great weekend getaway in a wonderful area of Chicago! We arrived late (10 pm) but were able to get into the apartment easily thanks to the detailed instructions and handy lock box. The apartment itself was spacious, clean and lovely, more than enough for 4 people. We took advantage of the gift card to Kitsch'n across the street - which had a GREAT brunch selection. We weren't able to make it to Volo, but it looked like a nice place to grab a glass of wine. The apartment is located above a bar, but we had no issues there (not particularly rowdy or noisy, also closes at a decent hour) Roscoe Village was an adorable and extremely safe neighborhood - super easy to catch an uber or hop on the train. Also a very pleasant place to take a walk around. We never needed to contact Jon while we were in town, but he was very friendly and responsive in the weeks leading up to our trip. My only point of improvement would be the beds/bedding - which were not terrible, but not particularly comfortable. If you're a picky pillow person like me, I would recommend bringing your own. Overall this was a great stay and we will definitely be back next time! HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
