Charming, quiet UK Village Apt

Apartment - Entire home/apt · North Wolcott Avenue, Chicago, IL 60622, United States

The whole second floor of a three-flat, the apartment is spacious, sunny, and beautiful, with an original 1920s fireplace, bay windows, and small porch that overlooks a slice of the Chicago skyline. 1 br, and a super-comfortable convertible couch. Close to great bars, restaurants, and public transportation.

The Space

My apartment in Ukrainian Village/Wicker Park is a rarity: on a beautiful residential block with virtually no street noise and quiet neighbors, but within a 10-minute walk of all the bars and restaurants on North, Division, and Chicago.

Guest Access

My spare bedroom has a full size bed (fits two people), as well as a large closet. The sofa in the living room folds out into a very comfortable full-sized bed. (The couch is best for either one person or two people who are comfortable sleeping in close quarters.) For larger groups, I also have a queen-size air mattress that can go easily in the living room or office area (fits two people). The apartment can accommodate six guests if two are willing to share the couch; otherwise, it is best suited for five guests.

Interaction with Guests

I will be out of the apartment completely--it's all yours! But I'm more than happy to give you tips about the neighborhood, the city, or anything else. I've lived in this apartment for almost three years, and grew up in Chicago, so I know my way around pretty well.

The Neighborhood

A few of the places within walking distance of the apartment:

Dive Bars
*Happy Village
*Innertown Pub
*Club Foot

Cocktail/Beer Bars

*Branch 27

Getting around

Less than a fifteen-minute walk from either the Division or Damen Blue Line stops, which puts you within twenty minutes of downtown or further north to the awesome Logan Square neighborhood. The Blue Line also goes directly to O'Hare airport.

Three blocks to the Chicago bus, a twenty-minute bus ride to Michigan Avenue and River North. Three blocks to the Division bus, a twenty-minute ride to Old Town/the Gold Coast.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Leight's apartment is charming and well-located. She was responsive and easy going. We had a great stay.

  • Leigh was an excellent host - communicative, accomodating to my changing schedule, and pleasant as can be. Her place was lovely and well located. Absolutely no regrets.

    September 2013
  • We were visiting Chicago for our daughter's wedding. Leigh was a great host - allowed us to pick up the keys early! Her apartment is reminiscent of her many travels & the fold down couch is spacious & very comfortable for sleeping & the bedroom was nice too! Ukrainian Village is wonderful & we were right down the street from Homestead Restaurant on the rooftop of Roots, for the reception.

  • Great experience! Leigh is a great and accommodating host. She was very communicative and everything went smoothly. The location of the apartment is perfect, close to lots of fun stuff (restaurants, bars, boutiques, public transportation) and not too far from the downtown area and other attractions. Everyone left with a great impression of Chicago.

  • Leigh was a wonderful host and the apartment was clean and comfortable--just as described! The neighborhood was charming and really close to some great restaurants in Wicker Park and Ukranian Villiage.

    The only issue (which wasn't really an issue for us) is that the fold out couch wasn't really big enough for 2 adults. There were only 4 of us though, so we just used the queen-sized air mattress Leigh provided! Overall, a really great option for a local chicago experience.

    Response from Leigh:

    Thanks for being such a good guest, Kevin. I updated my info to note that the couch is best for a single person or two people that are pretty fond of each other. :)

  • Nice location in a quiet neighborhood, about a 15 minute cab ride to the loop. Great bars and restaurants just minutes walking on division st.

    June 2013
  • Leigh was an amazing host! The apartment was awesome and the location is my favorite in Chicago.! Will def stay there again. Leigh also really worked with helping me book my trip. She was also even nice enough to give me a referral voucher to this awesome salon close by so I can get a haircut. Thanks again, Leigh!!!
