A day bed for the single traveler that opens to a King size bed for two. The room is small, but restful. You're also welcome to enjoy the beautiful gourmet kitchen and living room.
Enjoy the benefits of staying in a beautifully designed modern apartment for a fraction of the cost! This small bedroom has a twin day bed that opens to King size bed. When the bed is open, the room is tight. There is enough space for you to walk around the bed, with a small night stand and lamp at your head. The large closet has a dresser where you can place your suitcase, and hang any clothes. The bed also has under-drawers that you can use for your shoes, extra clothes, camera- anything! Rowan's Room is the perfect amount of space for you to unpack and sleep comfortably. You will have access to a beautiful bathroom with a bathtub, sink and towels, plus a medicine cabinet fully stocked with essentials in case you have forgotten anything. From time to time, this bathroom will be shared if another guest has booked the other "Guest Room".
In addition, you can indulge in the rest of the apartment, taking advantage of the spacious living room, open gourmet kitchen, projected movies, washer dryer, and a spin bike. We even have a crib, a bassinet, and an extra twin sized air mattress for an additional charge. You will love our fully stocked kitchen, but will also enjoy the 5 minute walk to all the fabulous restaurants Southport Ave has to offer. Going downtown? The Brown Line EL is also 5 minutes away.
Be advised, we have a toddler, and although he sleeps upstairs, you may hear him, though guests have said it is not bothersome. Blocks from all that chicago has to offer! Local attractions include: Southport corridor, Roscoe village, popular Lakeview district and the legendary Wrigley Field. Tons of fantastic shopping and restaurants minutes away.
Kitchen, living room, bathroom, laundry, spin bike, anything in our fridge and pantry, or anything else you might need!
Interaction with Guests
As much as you like :) we enjoy meeting our travelers, but can also respect your privacy.
So close to all the restaurants and shops, 20 minute walk to Wrigley Stadium, easy street parking, super close to the train.
One block from Ashland bus, three blocks to Brown Line EL Addison stop.
Other Things to Note
your beautiful bathroom may be shared if we are hosting a guest in the other guest room.
No parties, or drugs, and keep it down after 10. For our neighbours sake, no shoes inside. Please leave things as you find them, but otherwise, enjoy!
Garrett and Courtney were the reason I love Airbnb so much. We had to move around our check in time a little because of the previous party, but Garrett was great at communicating and incredibly thoughtful and made sure we were looked after. Part of the reason we had such a great evening in Chicago was we got to hang out with Garrett and Courtney. They both came back just as we finished dinner and joined us to have a conversation. They shared some music with us, gave us good food recommendations, and were really cool to hang out with. To top if off, their place is absolutely gorgeous. It's got a lot of natural light and has everything we could possibly need. Location wise, it's further into the city than where we usually stay, but that didn't limit the number of things to do around the area. I would DEFINITELY come back here if I needed to stay another night in Chicago.
Garret & Courtney (and little Rowan too!) are great hosts! Their home was equally as warm as their hospitality which made our extended weekend stay in Chicago an absolute blast. They were happy to provide en point recommendations and were happy to help us sort through our itinerary ideas to make our trip that much more enjoyable. Wonderful folks, great place, convenient location - looking forward to our return visit!
Garrett is a great host, he was very helpful in everything. The well located appartment was really nice and well designed, the neighbourhood was pretty and safe. Train station is just 2 minutes walk. We stayed there 3 days and we feel that we can be the members of his family for theese days so thank you :) . There is only one thing that if you open the king size bed there is not much space in the room. Altogether we spent a really good time there.
Garrett and his son Rowan welcomed me to their wonderful home as if I were family. Watch out if Rowan (1.5 years old) dares you to a hot salsa contest, you're not gonna win! Furthermore Garrett made me the best cup of coffee I had during my stay in Chicago and gave me priceless restaurant advice. Whenever I texted him during my stay he replied within minutes. What else can I say: oh, amazing bed (didn't even had to open it to king size), lovely shower and a location in a very nice residential street close to a metro and the trendy area of Lakeview. I heavily recommend!
I stayed at Garret and Courtney's apartment for three nights. The whole apartment is simply amazing and exactly as described and as shown in the pictures. We didn't use the kitchen very much but if we had been up for cooking we would have found everything we could have wished for. Although we didn't get to meet our hosts they nevertheless took perfectly care that we could enter the apartment and find everything we needed, and they were always reachable via cell phone.
There were several other guests during our stay, at some point three so that the whole apartment was completely occupied. That made the stay less private but was also very nice because we met some very interesting people and had nice conversations.
Overall, I can fully recommend Rowan's Room!
Our stay at the Anderson's was great. Their home is beautiful, comfortable, very well located and easy to get there. Train station is very near so it was easy to move around. The neighbourhood is pretty, safe, and we did a lot of walking around and found lovely places to eat and to do some special shopping. Our hosts were wonderful! The Anderson's are a beautiful family. They are very friendly and generous as they shared interesting tips about Chicago to make our stay more enjoyable.
I greatly recommend this place . It was lovely to get to know the Anderson's. We look forward for another visit in lovely Chicago and the opportunity to stay with them again. Thank you for making us feel so welcomed!
We greatly enjoyed our stay in Garrett and Courtney's wonderful apartment, which is inviting, warm and stylish. The room, though tight, was perfectly comfortable (as was the air mattress)! Very easy access and within walking distance to a lot of great neighborhood finds. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place or the hosts to anyone and would definitely stay here again!

My wife and I have been professional dancers for the last 15 years, living and dancing for companies in Seattle, San Francisco, Antwerp Belgium, and now Chicago. I am currently dancing with Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. Courtney has retired from dance to be the mother to our son Rowan, with another boy on the way! We love to travel, cook, listen to music, and laugh (Rowan is helping us a lot with that one.) We have put a lot of effort into creating a welcoming and inspiring space with this home, so we sincerely hope you enjoy your stay.
