About Mark Ladner

My wife and I have enjoyed living in our vintage 2 flat on the tree lined street in this Lakeview neighborhood for the last 25 years. So many places are is walking distance that we rarely use our car except for work. We have rented our 1st. floor as a short term vacation/temp apartment for the last 6 years and have hosted guests from all over the world to locals relocating or remodeling. We have truly enjoyed hosting guests that have come to explore the city, go to a ball game, a special family occasion or conference that brings them to Chicago.

Mark Ladner purchased this apartment in 1986

Why Mark Ladner chose Chicago

We purchased our 2 flat located in this north side neighborhood almost 25 years ago as a place to live and raise a family. We have never regretted moving to Lakeview. It is a vibrant neighborhood filled with tree lined streets lined with vintage maintained homes and apartments. This is a true Chicago neighborhood. Filled with a healthy mix of young families and singles as well as older long time residents. It is very walkable. There is little reason to need a car. Excellent public transportation to downtown and Lakeview is a very walkable part of town. It has been rated 92% on the walk ability index. Just a great place to experience a Chicago neighborhood.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed our Christmas holiday here so much. The Location was in the center of all our adventures in Chicago. Thanks so much for thinking of everything to make our stay so enjoyable.

Lakeview/Lincoln Park Vintage Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My family was in Chicago for two Cubs game. We wanted to be within walking distance of the park. It was great - slightly over a mile to park. Our party consisted of five adults, and there was adequate sleeping quarters to accommodate us. We spent very little time in the apartment and did not use the kitchen except to make coffee. We enjoyed the experience of having a home rather than a hotel. The neighborhood is great, and we would stay there again.

This rental was exactly as advertised and the yard was an unexpected treat! The neighborhood was lovely and easy access to the L. There are plenty of restaurants nearby and the apartment was well stocked with bath items and the kitchen had everything that was needed. This was our first VRBO experience and it was delightful.

Clean, comfortable, convenient

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here on Fathers' Day weekend, and we were very satisfied.

The condo is conveniently located for a visit to Wrigley. We walked home safely and easily after the game.

It was also easy catching the "L", a couple blocks away.

The condo had plenty of room for our group, including a nice back yard with seating.

I would not hesitate to book here again.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first VRBO experience and it was great! Great location with restaurants, and grocery stores. The neighborhood was nice, quite, and safe. We walked everywhere to include Wrigley Field to a Cubs game in ~ 20 minutes. Mark was a great help, he answered all of my questions before and during our stay. As mentioned in other posts, the house was clean and was just like the pictures. The house has a nice backyard with a barbecue and a nice teakwood picnic table. We will also try staying here again as well.

  • 5 of 5

This was my first VRBO experience and I was more than pleased with the ginko house! Great location with trains, bars, restaurants, and grocery stores near by. Wriggled field is only a few blocks walk away! I will be coming back in the future... A huge thanks to the owner Mark for accommodating us for our trip!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Our experience with this VRBO was excellent in every way. Mark was always responsive to our questions in a very timely way. The house was clean and like it was pictured to be. The neighborhood was nice and safe. We walked to Wrigley Field to a Cubs game in ~ 20 minutes at night without any concerns. The house has a nice backyard with a barbecue and a nice teakwood picnic table. We had a wonderful time in the backyard with a family hamburger barbecue. We would do it again without reservation.

The apartment is centrally located in the Lakeview neighborhood. A true Chicago neighborhood filled with small shops, ethnic restaurants and good public transportation. This neighborhood is car optional. The apartment is about 1 mile south of Wrigley Field and one Mile west of the wonderful Lakefront parks. It is 2 blocks from the Brown Line elevated train(the El) to downtown and the museums. There are always cabs for hire just outside your front door and the shops and restaurants all with in walking distance. So no mater what has brought you to Chicago you will be centrally located to take in a ball game enjoy the beach or spend a day exploring downtown and all the museums.

If you do come by car we provide parking stickers which allow you to street park close by.

Our 1st floor apartment is a classic vintage apartment fully equipped ready to be your home during your Chicago stay.

Other Activities: Take in a ball game at the 'Friendly confines of Wrigley Field'!

Free Lincoln Park Zoo is only 1.5 miles from the apartment. A really great zoo with conservatory gardens.

Our incredible lake front is just 1 mile due east. A great destination for a day of sun and people watching.

Our neighborhood is made up of single family homes,apartments and small shops and restaurants. The buildings range in age from new to over 100 years old. A walk through the neighborhood is a architectural tour of Chicago buildings.

Golf: Waveland Golf Course is a 9 hole golf course located right on our lake front. A really wonderful round of golf!
