About Teri Smith

First thing you need to know?

I still pick up the phone, so if you are interested in $aving $$$ on service fees, would like to know who you're renting from or have questions you'd like answered; give me a call. I'd be happy to hear from you!

Moving on...

Someone once told me 'Find a job you love & never work a day in your life' Glad I took that advice! Running Chicago Guest House was the BEST decision I ever made in my life!

Looking back, I probably should have taken a lot more good advice; guess it's never too late! :o)

Teri Smith purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Teri Smith chose Wrigleyville

This is not your typical cookie-cutter rental; my personality & style shines through!

My goal has always been to have my Guests experience the sense of having arrived ‘home’ when they walk through the door---to feel as comfortable & relaxed here in Chicago as they do their own home.

What makes this apartment unique

The Guest House on Lakewood Avenue has three apartments, each floor can be rented separately or rent them together for larger gatherings--up to 21.

It's great to all be under one roof, without being on top of one another--the three separate spaces offer privacy when you need it.

And best of all--the little piece of nature outside the back door. The garden is private & peaceful--perfect place to decompress, relax and enjoy.

Owner's Response: Hey Linda--I'm SO HAPPY you enjoyed the home and the neighborhood. It IS so close to everything--but not too close :o). Nice to have a little peace & quiet that you get hanging out in the back yard, or just sitting with a glass of wine on the front porch. As for the SUPER clean--Lucy is A-MA-ZING! I am blessed to work with her as she makes the homes shine! She'll appreciate knowing you noticed her hard work. I look forward to having you all back again. Teri

A Great apartment in a great area!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of our best vacations. The apartment was great with that "Old World Feeling". We had everything we could possibly need as far as towels, kitchenware, TV, free internet, air conditioning, the works. Parking is always an issue, especially in this area, but Teri had a 2 car garage, plus an additional parking spot, plus passes for street parking so parking was not an issue. The location was excellent, just a 5-10 minute walk to Wrigley Field and the great bars and restaurants around Wrigley. BTW parking for the games we went to was $40. If you're new to Chicago I would say the north side is where you want to stay. You're just a short Uber ride (or train ride) to Downtown, Michigan Ave, Rush Street, Old Town, Lincoln Park, and many other great areas in the City. We also had the pleasure of meeting Teri and she was awesome. Her communication was excellent. We will definitely stay there again. I highly recommend this apartment for any trip you might make to Chicago.

Thanks Teri !!!!

Owner's Response: Happy to hear you enjoyed the place and location. I've said so many times, you may find that you never want to leave the neighborhood because it's so wonderful, but it would be a shame to miss out on all the city has to offer! You were only there for a few days so I know there is much more for you to see and enjoy--hope you find your way back soon! Teri

Excellent Property! Close to everything. Excellent service by owner. I strongly recommend it!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent Property! We (several colleagues and myself) were in town for a meeting and rented two units (8 bedrooms) in the same building. Everything about our experience was fantastic - from beginning to end. The rental process was simple - Teri answered all questions promptly and all information was received in a timely manner. The property was exactly as promised. The house was clean and modern, tasteful decor, bedrooms were comfortable, and the kitchen well appointed. The backyard and front porch were fantastic places to relax! The metro was very close. Very easy to get downtown for our meeting. The area itself was close to Wrigley field and numerous bars and restaurants were steps away. The local pub (Guthrie's) is just 2 blocks down the street and Southport was only a couple of blocks away and Wrigleyville a few blocks in the other direction. No shortage of things to do, places to eat, or grab a cold one!

I would highly recommend this place. We have stayed in many vacation rentals for meetings and this, by far, was the best one yet.

Owner's Response: The best vacation rental by far?! Whoohooo--I am so happy to hear that! Guthrie's is a hidden gem off the beaten path from all the other bars--love that place! It's great that you had some time to experience the neighborhood---no shortage of places is right! Hope to have you back for your next Chicago visit! Teri

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I can't fault this accommodation. It seriously had everything in the cupboards and drawers that you would have in your own house! The photos are a true representation of what you get. It's in a great location. Beds were comfortable. We used Uber with ease to get around. We would definitely stay here again if in Chicago and highly recommend it to others.

What You'll Find in Lakeview / Wrigleyville?

Southport Corridor Shopping--- Stray from the Mag Mile and that's where the city's shopping scene really shines! It's here in Lakeview / Wrigleyville where you'll find a quintessential Chicago neighborhood shopping experience! Unique shops and boutiques line Southport Ave, Belmont and Halstead Streets. There's a perfect shop for all styles and budgets.

Amazing Restaurants--- Tamales to tiramisu; the dining choices are endless. No matter what you have a 'hankerin' for; you’re sure to find it within walking distance of any of the three Chicago Guest House properties!

Live Music Scene---Chicago has always been a destination for touring musicians, producers and artists many of whom have played the many venues here in Lakeview. Additionally, you'll find musicians in town for the music festivals that take place all summer long

Live Theatre--- The Belmont Theater District is Chicago's Largest! The Lakeview/Wrigleyville neighborhood includes more than 20 theaters and 100-plus bars, restaurants and cafes, representing one of the city’s greatest concentrations of live theater, entertainment and dining attractions.

Wrigley Field and 'The Park at Wrigley'---home to our beloved Chicago Cubs! Even if you don't spend the afternoon watching a game, you don't want to miss strolling over to the corner of Clark & Addison to see one of baseball's oldest ballparks nestled among the historic Greystones that make up this amazing neighborhood! And you don't want to miss the events at The Park all year long!

Chicago's Lakefront---not to be outdone by its extraordinary entertainment landscape, Lakeview makes full use of the northern end of Lincoln Park. Enjoy the scenic Lakefront Trail, a golf course, tennis courts and so much more!

Though you may be tempted to never leave the neighborhood, it would be a shame to miss out on all the city has to offer! Jump on either a Brown or Red Line train--either will take you direct to downtown and all of Chicago's attractions!

Or if you're up to the challenge, walk or ride along the spectacular lakefront to downtown. Divvy Bikes are available in the neighborhood and there is really no better way to really see this amazing city! Ride alongside the beautiful boat filled harbors, and through the lush and colorful gardens of Lincoln Park and while you’re there, catch a glimpse of some of the animals at the zoo. And though it’s only a four mile ride, you may enjoy a little energy break at one of the three beach side bistro's along the way! Once downtown, you can park the bike at any of hundreds of stations throughout the city.
