Great open space for a night in!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this place for some colleagues to stay that flew in for a team training. We also had a team dinner here that night and it was perfect! The space is in a great location with tons of restaurant options (we ordered pizza) and the open concept was awesome for the team to just hang out, play games and chat. The girls that stayed loved the rooms and the house was incredibly clean. We got to meet Jon and his family when we first got there and they were super friendly and explained everything. You are truly using a home they live in, so something to be aware of but they cleared out space in the closet, fridge etc. and for our purposes, the houes was great! Thanks Jon!

elegant residence in hip wicker park!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a spacious, comfortable and elegantly modern home a few blocks from Wicker Park (the actual park that the neighborhood is named for!), this is the home for you. It was the perfect location for our family to gather. Great amenities in Wicker Park. Great access to Chicago. Very hip; very private; very comfortable; very proximate! This is a modern home in a historic neighborhood. It is very clean and well maintained. The hosts were very easy to work with. Would stay here again!

Stunning home with thoughtful owners

  • 5 of 5

Jon really made us feel at home in his fabulous tri-level home. The pictures simply don't do it justice. It was modern, spotless, well maintained, and had all the essentials you'd expect like towels and soap, pots and pans, etc... He even left us coffee and donuts! He was always available by phone or text and responded timely.

Jon is a real class act, and we expect to return to his home whenever our travels take us to Chicago.

All 4 members of our group agreed - nicer than nearly any hotel in town!

Modern, Spa-Like Atmosphere In Old Chicago Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We quickly booked a one-night stay, but wish we could have enjoyed this Wicker Park beauty for a few more nights!

The owners care about their home and it shows. They also care about your stay, and make available any creature comfort you could want. Jon and Meg were very sweet, and showed us around when we checked in. This personal touch served two purposes: We became instantly familiar with the operation of the house (Which was great since we didn't have a few days 'learning curve'), and we could see that we clearly were staying in someone's home, and not a typical rental. But we seamlessly moved in, and felt right at home thanks to their warm greeting.

Everyone in our party of 5 had plenty of room, with the beds and bathrooms sprinkled among the 3 levels. The hot tub is a great additional getaway, and adds to the big feel of a what is a relatively small footprint. The common spaces are really cozy, and everywhere is a poetic mix of modern meets tradition.

The neighborhood is great. Walking to shopping and dining is a breeze during good weather, and we were 20 minutes from downtown either driving or on the Blue Line.

Thank-you for letting us experience your home!
