The space

There are two sections to the home making the guest quarters very private.

Living room is lined with windows that overlook the landscaped back yard and 3 season room.
Living area features fireplace, large 3D TV, movies, games, and PS4 to keep entertained at night.

One guest room has a full sized bed and the second room has two twin beds. Guest room with full bed has Roku TV with DVD player.

We only book one reservation in the guest wing at a time to ensure privacy.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the newly renovated kitchen and living room as well as laundry room. Outdoor areas are also open to guests.

Interaction with guests

We work a lot so guests will have most of the house to themselves but when we are home we like to say hello and provide tips on exploring the Chicagoland area. We also work from home so we will be in our office in case you need anything.

The neighborhood

Scenic neighborhood in the heart of the North Shore with convenient access to Chicago. Short walk to Chicago Botanic Gardens and Ravinia Park. Close to beach and parks. This is a very quiet and peaceful neighborhood that has a nice downtown and easy access to the city.

Getting around

1.5 blocks to Metra station with express trains to downtown Chicago.

Other things to note

We have three cats that stay in the master wing of the house. They have no access to the main section of the home and no access to guest rooms. Guest linens are kept separate to minimize fur.

We can accommodate stays over 28 days for parties of 1 or 2 but ask that a separate booking be made.

Excellent location, quiet community and walking distance to Rosewood beach. Laura and Nik were very responsive throughout the process. Only hoped we could stay longer!

Lauren was a delightful host! Her home was very welcoming and quiet, which was much needed after a long day exploring Chicago.

Friendly, relaxed welcome- well equipped home, with very comfortable beds. Perfect for an overnight stop visiting friends in the area before heading off for a few days at the lake.

We had a wonderful night's stay at Laura's place. It was relaxing, serene and although a shared space felt very private. We have 2 children we were a bit nervous about a shared home but it worked out wonderfully. Laura and her husband were very welcoming and helpful with suggestions for places to eat, things to do, etc. and our bedrooms were clean, comfortable and we all got a great night's sleep. It's located in a very beautiful, scenic neighborhood which is surprisingly walkable so you can ditch the car and slow down if you desire. All within 24 hours our family explored the Botanic Garden, Rosewood Beach, as well as Fort Sheridan. Highly recommended!

A fantastic home in a wonderful suburban location. You get your own guest wing of the house with two bedrooms and three beds. Very clean and well maintained. I didn't meet Laura but her husband Nick was very welcoming and accommodating. Definitely recommend!

I had a great stay at Laura's place. While I have used Airbnb often, this was the first time I stayed in a shared environment. Laura and Nik were welcoming and easy going. They helped me be very comfortable in their home. I will stay again at Laura's place when I return next to Chicago

Laura User ProfileLaura is a superhost.

I am someone who loves to travel and meet new people. While at home I love to try new bars and restaurants in Chicago and take advantage of the live music scene. My favorite place to visit is Sweden and the US West Coast.
I enjoy snowboarding, skateboarding, swing dancing, and playing guitar.

I also love animals and have spoiled and lazy cats.

I am a quiet guest who enjoys relaxing with a cup of tea and chatting about the day. I like to make sure I leave a place as clean as I found it and often clean up my hotel room before housecleaning arrives.
