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.
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 beautiful part of the city and a complete home away from home feel. I highly recommend it.
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.
Everything was great!! We were able to follow the simple instructions for check in without any issues. Ample sleeping space to fit us all. A great spot, If I go back to chicago it will be top of my list for places to stay.
Stayed for 3 nights as a family of 5 with 3 small children while visiting family nearby - had a fantastic experience. The apartment was clean and well appointed with much more space than I expected for that part of Chicago. Parking wasn't a problem - always able to find free on-street parking within a block. Contacted the owner once, and he was very responsive and helpful. We were there over a weekend but did not have any issues with noise from the restaurant or street below.
My only suggestion for improvement would be to install blackout curtains in the front bedroom - the sheer curtains provided adequate privacy but made it difficult to sleep in on a summer morning.
Overall, we were very happy with our stay and will definitely recommend to friends and look to return again someday!
The location of this property is perfect for anyone visiting Chicago, especially if they plan on visiting Wrigley Field! It is a very pleasant walk to and from Wrigley and just what we were looking for! The apartment is clean and comfortable and has everything you need to feel at home. There was no problem finding free parking and we never used our car during our stay because we were so close to bus stops and the rail system. The shops and restaurants in the neighborhood are great and the neighbors are friendly. Our stay was great and the Cubs won two of the three games we attended!!!
I booked this guest suite for a girls weekend and could not be more pleased! Everything was just as described in the listing. It slept 4 very comfortably and had all the amenities we needed (bonus- actual quality shampoo, conditioner & body wash in the shower, score!). We all talked about how much we appreciated being able to take a quick Uber into the city during the day to sight-see and having Roscoe Village to enjoy in the mornings and evenings. We dined at Kitsch'n, Volo, Orange, and HotWoksCoolSushi in the village and all of our meals were excellent. Four Treys Tavern was the perfect "divey" bar for a nightcap. It was much appreciated that the owner provided coupons to both Kitsch'n and Volo. In all, we can't wait to come back!
The unit is located within an enjoyable 15-20 minute walk through safe residential neighborhoods to Wrigley Field (easy public transportation is able easily accessible both to Wrigley and downtown). We are blocks away from northside music venues including Shubas & The Beat Kitchen, and an easy taxi/bus/train to The Vic and The Riviera.
Roscoe Village is one of Chicago's premier residential neighborhoods often referred to as 'A village within the city' and features dozens of restaurants, bars, shops, boutiques, sidewak cafes, shopping, and family-friendly parks.
During the summer months, inexpensive kayak & canoeing rentals are easily accessible on the North Branch of the Chicago River via Clark Park less than a mile from the unit, and Chicago's Bike Share Program 'Divvy' has a location within a 1/2 block.
