  • Felt right from the moment we stept into the loft. The pictures almost don't do the place justice, it is a great place to stay. Lots of space, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. Jeremy and Jordan very easy going and helpful. It's all the little things that made us feel so welcome: the filled fridge, the fresh flowers on the table, plenty of fluffy towels, the spare toiletries, all the info provided (for the love of laminates...). We were very happen to have chosen this place to stay. You need to calculate some time to get to the city, but it is very convenient with the blue line. Neighborhood is very nice, whole foods market close by, felt very safe and quiet.

  • Great place in a great area. Walked to great restaurants every night. Everything we expected and more. We changed our travel plans to stay here, and we are glad we did. Great spot out of the city with great local amenities and tour destinations along with good access to downtown by car or L train.

  • The loft was exceptionally comfortable, we felt at home. A lot of care and thought went into the decor of this fabulous loft. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Chicago or suburbs. Our host Jeremy and Jordan are easy to communicate with and very willing to help with any questions. This location was ideal for us since it allowed us to visit family and friends living in the western suburbs and in the city. Easy to get to downtown both by public transport and personal vehicle. We enjoyed all the local eateries which were all fabulous, especially Brown Cow Ice Cream Parlor!

  • This is a great place to stay, not only for its location and easy access into the city and closeness to local shops and restaurants, but also because it's a home from home experience. The interior is stunning and has everything you could possibly need for your stay. The personal welcoming touches also make you feel valued and special. I would highly recommend it!

  • The loft on Madison is fabulous - cozy, clean, modern, superbly decorated and appointed. Jordan and Jeremy were excellent hosts and provided good recommendations on things to do and places to eat in the area. There is no shortage of restaurants and shops in a 3 block area. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. We were in Chicago for a wedding and all our friends were jealous of our accommodations.

  • What a great loft apartment and wonderful hosts!! Four of us stayed for several days in the loft. Jordan met us there when we checked in and showed us everything and gave us some great dinner suggestions. The loft was very clean and comfortable!! Extra blankets and towels were readily available. Easy walking distance to restaurants and shops in Forest Park as well as being very close to the blue line into downtown Chicago. We had one small problem with the apartment while we were there and Jeremy was very responsive and took care of it quickly. I will be staying here on future visits to Chicago.

  • Jeremy and Jordan's Handsome Loft gets an A+++ from us! The loft itself is beautifully decorated, comfortable, and clean. Jeremy and Jordan are thoughtful hosts who focus on details like providing fresh flowers, plenty of hangers in the closets, and even interesting browsing and reading material! Location was ideal for us; we walked to some very nice restaurants. Thank you, Jeremy and Jordan, for sharing your special space!

About
My husband and I bought the condo in November of 2011, and ever since we turned the key it has been a labor of love. Self described property and construction enthusiasts, we remodeled everything ourselves except for a few key pieces which warranted a strict learning curve. We hope to remodel more properties in the near future before the baby train ensues! :)
