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.
Home features: This unit has beautiful hardwood floors, ceramic floor in kitchen and bath. Kitchen has a pantry and lots of storage. Dishes and silverware, a variety of glassware, and table linens are provided.
Overall had a pleasant stay. The people managing the property were nice, polite, and easy to reach. The location in the city is fantastic (right next to a grocery store) and the physical property itself is nice and comfortable with good furniture. There are a couple of details that if improved I would happily increase my rating.
1) The garage is available, but very small. Important to note with families that larger family cars will not fit (can't change it, but make sure to be open with families)
2) Two of the three fire alarms were broken and the last working alarm expired the following month
3) Wifi signal was weak
4) Old expired food in the pantry
Again, none of these are deal breakers, and if fixed would make a great location to stay in
Our family of 6 stayed here while visiting family in Lincoln Park. We were able to walk every we needed to be, but public transit was also available. The beds were comfortable and plenty of towels and blankets were provided. We enjoyed hanging out in the kitchen, playing games at the dining room table and reading in the living room. It was too cold to be outside, but the table on the back porch area would be great in warmer weather. It was great having a movie theatre and Treasure Island supermarket within a couple blocks. We would definitely recommend this flat.
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.
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.
The place of very well kept and Rosemary is an outstanding hostess. Great place and good Lincoln Park location for a weekend out short stay in Chicago.
very convenient to Wrigley....great neighborhood that allowed for easy access to several great breakfast and dinner spots....perfect!
Great location, close to shopping, restaurants, night life, Wrigley Field. Easy walk to the "L" (red/brown/purple lines), 15 minutes ride to downtown Chicago, the Magnificent Mile, world famous museums and theaters. Minutes from the lakefront, Lincoln Park Zoo. Take in a game at Wrigley Field, visit the conservatory, stroll or bike along the beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline, relax at the beach, visit the attractions at Navy Pier. Tot lot on same block, several churches within walking distance. Wireless Internet is available. TV/Blu Ray player.
