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.

                                                        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.


                                                        A Great apartment in a great area!!!

                                                        James C.

                                                        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 !!!!

                                                        Awesome location and beautiful appartment

                                                        Laura H.

                                                        We had an amazing weekend at Teri's place. The apartment was clean and beautifully decorated with lots of great art. The location is awesome.

                                                        Great place - excellent location!

                                                        Chris V.

                                                        We really enjoyed our stay!

                                                        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!


                                                        Wonderful stay!

                                                        Kevin T.Jerseyville, Illinois

                                                        Great location, just steps from Wrigley, but still in a quiet neighborhood. Plenty of room with well kept accommodations.

                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                        Thanks Kevin--glad you had a wonderful stay.

                                                        Yes--steps away from everything, but not in the thick of it! It's what makes it such a great location! Hope to have you back again.


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

                                                        Pauline S.Kingston Ontario

                                                        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!

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.
