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 North Center
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. 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!

The apartment is in a great area with plenty of parking and restaurants.
While not entirely the owners fault, we showed up to the property to find the keys in the wrong area. Once we got the correct keys, we found the apartment to be a mess. Beds were a mess, lack of clean towels, bathroom dirty, etc. Owner apologized, which was nice, but did very little to ease our frustration. We didn’t receive a refund of any amount. Instead, we were offered brunch certificates (which were supposed to come with the room initially). The apartment is in a great area, so hopefully the mess doesn’t happen to the owner again.
Had a great time in Chicago!
We arrived early and Jon did an awesome job accommodating our early arrival! We didn't stay in the unit much as we were constantly on the go, however the accommodations were more than adequate for our stay. I would definitely stay there again if I came back to Chicago.
Great place in a great location
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this rental. We loved the village. It is in very quiet with an easy walk to many restaurants. We were there for baseball and he walk to Wrigley field was a little farther than we were told but we enjoyed seeing the area. The second game we took a cheap Uber ride to the field. We had plenty of room and the owners were great, very responsive to any questions. We would definitely stay here again.
Spacious # Great Location # Fully equipped
Communicating with Jon was easy, he was accommodating and getting keys was easy. The apartment was larger, the beds comfy and fully equipped. The location was great and parking was convenient and free nearby(which is a commodity in Chicago). Would love to stay there again.
Excellent place to stay! The apartment had everything we needed and it is in a great location.
The apartment had everything we needed. It is in a great location - near the subway line so easy access to the tourist sites and near Wrigley Field for the baseball lovers.
Great location and super easy to get to Wrigley Field and local restaurants! The place could have been cleaned better and the bedding and towels seemed very used. But over all was a good weekend place for a surprise birthday trip!! Thx!!
