North Side Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 6, free laundry in building

Our classic Chicago apartment is located in a traditional brick and stone 2 unit walk up. It has been lovingly restored and updated to provide both a sense of Chicago's past and the comforts of today.

Lincoln Park is a vibrant area of restaurants, shops, parks and recreation. We are a 10 minute bike ride (less than a mile) from the lakefront and its many beaches, parks, and miles of paved path for biking/running/rollerblading . Excellent public transportation, the Fullerton L is a 10 minute walk, with brown/red/purple lines connecting to the heart of downtown Chicago,the world famous Magnificent Mile shopping, Millenium Park, the Art Institute, and many theaters and museums.

Within walking distance of Lakeshore Athletic Club and DePaul Athletic Center, both of which offer day passes.

Located 10 minutes from the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, Lincoln Park Zoo, and Fullerton Avenue beach. This is an excellent area for family activities as well as adult entertainment.

Local Highlights: This unit is located steps from Webster Place Theater, Barnes & Noble, Pot Belly and Starbucks and our favorite French patisserie Vanille . There is a tot lot on the block and several churches within walking distance. The neighborhood is famous for its many bars, restaurants, playgrounds, coffee shops and quaint and unique stores and boutiques. It is a clean, safe, active area.

1/2 block from Treasure Island grocery store. There is a Trader Joe's, Mariano's, and a Whole Foods within a 5 minute drive, and a Costco nearby.

Three of us stayed in this apartment for a girls weekend in Chicago. It was perfect! Loved the cozy living room with dappled sunlight where we spent a relaxed evening. The remodeled kitchen is a wonderful breakfast place where we chatted and drank coffee before heading out. The L is in easy walking distance and we used it to go all over the city. The iconic pizza place Pequod's is right around the corner and there are tons of other restaurants and bars in the neighborhood. A grocery is just a block away. The apartment was spotless and had everything we needed for a pleasant stay. In previous years we have stayed in hotels down town but from now on I will stay here on our annual trips. I strongly recommend it.

Great place to stay - steps to everything and just as described

  • 5 of 5

My family of four (2 adults, 6 yr old and 7 yr old) had a great time staying here in Chicago. It was very spacious and well-equipped. It was very close to the train (about a 10-15 min walk), and just a block or so to the grocery store. We appreciated having a washer/dryer, coffee maker/grinder and the bath necessities provided for us. Rosemary was easy to work with and I would highly recommend staying here.

A group of family members came to Chicago for a cousin's wedding. We all stayed in this apartment together. I like how the three bedrooms are separated as with this many of us, it helped with privacy. The home is an older home so the woodwork and furnishings are lovely. The kitchen was updated and had everything we needed. The children enjoyed the screened in back porch and especially the park directly across the street. The owner and the Property Manager were very good about keeping in touch with us and answering questions. Easy Uber access to everywhere we wanted to go. Restaurants within walking distance. We had lunch at The Derby and it was delicious! The server/bartender was so much fun and took great care of us!

The only negatives were just one bathroom (but we knew that going in and worked around it just fine) and the steps from the first floor to the second floor where the apartment is located.

If we find ourselves in Chicago again, we would definitely rent this pretty apartment again.

Lovely perfectly maintained & appointed flat - fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed on the 2nd floor and it was lovely. We like older charming homes and so this suited us beautifully. Everything was in perfect order, everything you'd need in kitchen, comfy beds with plenty of towels, extra linens, etc. Back porch was sun drenched in the morning and our early riser loved it. Easy cab & Uber downtown, to train that took us to Ravinia, and everywhere else. Walked to Chicago's best pizza at Pequods!! Lock to the upstairs door is tricky but easily mastered. Hope to visit again.
