About Jon Young

Owners Jon & Helene have been in hospitality for over 20 years. Jon is a restaurateur & chef, and Helene is an international flight attendant and a former Chicago Architectural Foundation river cruise docent.

Jon Young purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Jon Young chose Chicago

We have been neighborhood residents for 15 years and have not only enjoyed raising a family while seeing a positive transformation of Chicago during that time, but also of the Roscoe Village neighborhood and its amenities. We own and operate two award-winning and acclaimed restaurants here, and realized we had the ideal setting for a bed & breakfast style vacation rental conveniently located right in the heart of our community.

What makes this apartment unique

Guests have immediate access to more than a dozen dining options to fit any budget, pretty sidewalk cafes & hidden backyard garden patios all just a few blocks away on Roscoe Street, as well as unique independently owned retail shops & boutiques (also a Starbucks nearby in a converted former Motorcycle Cafe 'The Ace Cafe').

Within walking distance there are family friendly parks, a baseball diamond, public pool, and a park district field house (offering tennis courts & a basketball court), as well as kayaking and canoeing nearby .

The neighborhood is extremely walk-able, upper-middle class and safe, has seen a wave of renovations over the last decade, the neighborhood also boasts a 100+ year old Pencil Factory that has been converted to lofts, with original factory-worker row houses still intact located on adjacent blocks.

Public transportation is super easy and just a half block away there is access to the Belmont Avenue Bus (access to the Red, Brown & Blue Lines), the Western Avenue Bus (Blue Line to Wicker Park/Bucktown & The Loop), plus the Addison Street Bus (direct to Wrigley Field - Home of the Cubs) just four blocks away.

If you visit us in the summer, Wrigley Field is just a 20 - 30 minute walk (about a two miles) through residential neighborhoods and tree lined streets, filled with 100 year old + houses. The guest suite is also located a short walk from our wine bar, Volo. It is beautifully designed w/ an urban chic interior and rustic hidden backyard cabana garden in which we from time to time host weddings.

Additionally, directly across the street from Volo is our celebrated casual brunch spot, Kitsch'n On Roscoe. Decked out in colorful 1970's retro dinette sets, and filled with assorted retro and vintage decor, Kitsch'n has been featured in Bon Apetit Magazine and on $40 a Day with Rachel Ray.

Finally, in warmer months, you & your guests have private access to a beautiful shaded 600 sq. ft. garden patio w/table, chairs, grill & more.

We had a great stay in this cozy cute garden apartment with lots of amenities

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was ideal for our week long stay in Chicago. The bedrooms were a bit snug, but comfortable. The living room was great for hanging out. All of the appliances worked well and tips for use that property management provided were helpful. Property management was also easy to contact though not really needed during our stay as they provided clear instructions for arrival and check out.

Roscoe Village was a fantastic location with many appealing restaurants and shops in short walking distance. While getting to the el was a bit of a walk (approx. 1 mile), there were bus stops about a block away going both north/south and east/west thus making it easy to get to other parts of the city. The apartment was also close to a large grocery store should one want to cook. The apartment's kitchen had all the basic tools you'd need - although new knives would not be a bad idea.

Wonderful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the apartment at Roscoe Village. We enjoyed it very much and everything was clean, well equipped, nicely decorated and beds were perfect. The garden is a plus as well! We also loved the neighborhood (and the Volo restaurant). The bus/metro was also convenient, so getting downtown Chicago was easy.
