About the property

6 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 14

With its large dining room table and brand new kitchen, this 6 bedroom Lincoln Park duplex is perfect for your group's get together.

One block from Halsted St. and all that the Lincoln Park neighborhood in Chicago has to offer, this 6 bedroom duplex apartment home has a full kitchen, dining and living room plus additional rooms in which to spread out. A covered back porch (with table, chairs and a grill) leads to a parking area with room for up to 2 cars. The front yard has a gated seating area that looks out on a quiet residential street covered with beautiful homes and rich foliage. There is a piano as well as a working fireplace within the living room area, as well as cable television and wireless internet.

This is a lovingly lived-in and well-maintained vintage family home in a great neighborhood, which will provide you with all the comforts of home. (Did we mention the spice rack?)

There are 6 bedrooms total in this home. The Master bedroom has a Queen bed, its own private bathroom with a large, two person jacuzzi, a sink with marble top and a bidet. There are two additional bedrooms with Queen beds and two with Twin beds, as well as a sixth with a Queen sized air mattress. In addition, there is a Full-sized sofa bed, a fold out Twin-sized bed and a couch. In total, up to 14 people can stay in the home, though it is ideal for about 10.

Please note that a dog sometimes lives in the home when guests are not there, which is thoroughly cleaned by a professional before each stay (the home, not the dog).

Also, there is a three night minimum stay at the listed rate.

Lastly, this is a city home in a quiet, residential neighborhood. There is also a tenant living in the apt below this duplex home. Quiet hours are from 8pm - 8am.

Family home with charm, neighborhood with appeal

  • 5 of 5

Spacious home, fully outfitted. Comfortable rooms, kitchen, two terraces for breakfasts and cocktails al fresco. Even original art! Wonderful neighborhood with coffee shops, restaurants and grocery stores; we walked or biked everywhere.

Great place for our women's weekend

  • 4 of 5

The property was perfect for 7 women - everyone had their own bed although some were of the inflatable style. It was clean and the owner was great to work with. Great location, for bus, walking and the "L". Lots of bars, restaurants and grocery stores nearby. We were all very comfortable.

Fabulous memories in this home!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed four nights in this lovely home with our whole family for our daughter's wedding. We had everything we needed and the children enjoyed the Wii game. Restaurants and grocery stores were close and we even walked to Lincoln Park Zoo. Parking at this home was no problem and our children thanked us several times for renting the home so we could all be together.

If you want to enjoy Chicago like a "local" in the heart of a warm and vibrant community, this is it

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 was looking for a spot where we could each have our own room, and also enjoy the city-life perspective with neighbourly appeal. We found it here and the 2-floor space privided plenty of room for us.

There are great restaurants and bar on N Halsted and Clark...all walking distance. And we found an amazing place called Clark St Dog that made us feel like locals.

The owner of the property was so kind and I highly recommend this safe, clean, comfortable and beautiful property!

Great Area, Nice house, Great Communication

  • 5 of 5

The area is fantastic. The house was very well stocked, the beds were comfortable, and it easily accommodated the 8 of us (all singles). It is only a part-time rental, it is someone's home the most of the time. My only gripe would be that there is an abundance of personal items around, and it seem like we were intruding into someones space. But it is not enough of a gripe to drop a star, that is for sure. Communication with the owner was great, she met us at the house when we checked in and gave us a run down of everything. Would stay there again, and would recommend it to friends.

Perfect Family Reunion Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband wanted to celebrate a major milestone birthday with a family reunion. Nearly all family members were from out of town and would need lodging. Hotels are isolating and not well located for our needs. This home enabled two families and their 8 children to have a stress free, comfortable, neighborhood located, park located, zoo located, easy transportation located, and car convenient place to stay.

The owner couldn't have been more accommodating and the reunion was a success. We would definitely recommend this property, particularly for the holidays and other adult/children occasions.

Map

Car: not necessary

The neighborhood contains a large number of upscale boutiques, restaurants and coffee shops, as well as many bars and clubs in the area within walking distance. Local bars / music clubs include Kingston Mines (famous blues club), The Burwood Tap, Blues R & B, Alive One, Trinity, Hidden Shamrock, Sapori Trattoria and D.O.C. Wine Bar among many others.

The red line 'El' train stop at Fullerton is a short walk away, which will take you to the downtown 'Loop' area as well as many of the various other neighborhoods in the city. A $10 cab ride can get you just about anywhere you'd want to go, with taxi cabs easily accessible. Chicago's beautiful lakefront is also a short walk away, with its fresh water beaches (no salt added!), the lakefront bike path, green space in Lincoln Park itself and countless recreational activities. There is also a large playground half a block away, close enough to be convenient for families but far enough away not to hear it at all.

Lincoln Park is one of the wealthiest communities in which to live in Chicago, with the average single family home priced around 1 million dollars and many homes in the area selling for more than 10 million dollars.
