Queen futon bed in a beautiful apartment
Enjoy the benefits of staying in a beautifully designed modern apartment for a fraction of the cost! This small bedroom has a queen sized couch futon, writing desk and closet. Just enough space for you to unpack and sleep comfortably. You will have access to a beautiful bathroom with a bathtub, sink and towels, as well as a fully stocked medicine cabinet in case you forgot anything. From time to time, this bathroom will be shared if another guest has booked "Rowan's Room" (our second 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 queen sized air mattress (can be set up in the living room) 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. But don't worry, we have a white noise machine and visitors have said it has not been bothersome. This property is only blocks from so many great things! Fantastic local restaurants, shopping and entertainment. Southport corridor, Lakeview, Roscoe Village, and Wrigly field all nearby. Come discover a great city and make your stay at once a luxurious and affordable experience. Easy street parking, two blocks from CTA train and steps from the bus.
Gourmet kitchen, bathroom, living room with record collection and books, laundry and spin bike.

Garrett, Courtney and little Rowan are great hosts. I really enjoyed my stay in their home. It was very clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The neighborhood is fantastic with great restaurants, shops. I would recommend their home. Thank you for letting me share your home...
Garrett & Courtney are just great!
We had chance to meet when I was almost leaving but my whole trip since they confirmed the reservation they were checking out on me to see if everything was fine, sending recommendations and indications, and so on...
The place es well located, quite clean and the decoration is lovely.
I would definitely stay there again!
What a fantastic way to inaugurate my airbnb experience! Garrett and Courtney's place was beautiful, classy, clean, and comfortable. I stayed for 10 nights for a work trip in one of the guest rooms (my husband joined me for 3 nights and loved it as well). The location is great both for the neighborhood itself (walkable, good cafes/restaurants/shops nearby) and also for getting downtown and other parts of the city via the brown line and multiple bus lines. The bedroom is small but with a comfortable bed and ample closet space. I also enjoyed hanging out in the kitchen and living room, and meeting other guests who stayed in the time I was there. Garrett and Courtney were incredibly hospitable and friendly. Also, their son Rowan is one of the cutest and happiest kids I have ever met. (I love hanging out with kids so I made a special effort to get to know him but when Courtney and Garrett are staying at the house, they really have Rowan upstairs and out and about much of the time, so I recommend the guest room whether or not you are into kids. Though there's a good chance that regardless you will be charmed by Rowan!)
My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Garrett and Courtney's place. Although we never met them personally, it is clear they take great pride in their home and in their generosity in sharing it with others. Getting in and out was facilitated by their being very responsive and responsible. Although the bedroom is smaller than we expected, we found ourselves enjoying the shared space more. When we stayed we ended up having a long conversation with another couple and an elderly man that were staying in the other rooms, and it was a truly delightful experience. If you get the feeling their home would fit your need and style I would not hesitate at all to recommend their service to you.
This is our very first airbnb experience, and it turned out to be amazing. We didn't have the chance to meet the host, but the check in recess is very convenient and easy. The place is huge, and we kind like have the whole house ourselves in the first two nights. The house has everything you can ask for. The host text us the second day and ask about if we need anything. Also the whole decoration style is really simple but modernized. The area is really walkable and safe. The brown line is only 5 minute walk away. I tried the coffee place they recommended and it was great! We really enjoyed our stay here in Garret and Courtney's house. Hope to meet them in person next time. Highly recommend:) Thank you Garrett and Courtney !!!
Garrett and Courtney's guest room was delightful, mostly because it is set in a beautifully decorated and functional apartment. I loved the system of getting into the apartment even though I arrived late in the evening. That it is close to the "L" train is another great plus. And the most important element for me was that it was close to my daughter's (and her roommates) new apartment. Courtney provided a list of suggested "thrifty" places that we could furnish parts of the daughter's apartment. It was so helpful! I was fortunate, also, to get to meet their little one and was totally captivated.
We had a wonderful stay at Garrett and Courtney's guest house.
We only had the chance to meet Courtney, she was a very friendly and welcoming host. The apartment is beautifully decorated, very clean and at walking distance to good restaurants.
We highly recommend Garrett and Courtney's place and would definitely stay here again!

I am a professional dancer currently working with Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. My wife, Courtney (also a dancer) is now learning the new role of mother as we welcome baby Rowan to the world. 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.
