My mother and I were in Chicago to visit our daughter who is attending the Art Institute and this was the perfect place to stay. Layne was a wonderful host and made sure we were comfortable. She met us at her place and gave us a tour and historical background on the neighborhood. Perfect location to lots of eateries! It just so happened it was lots going on during our stay in the neighborhood, including an art show (Lanye is quite the artist, her works were beautiful!) in the neighborhood with food trucks. They actually were filming the TV show, the Exorcist right outside the window during our stay! Would definitely stay again!

This is a fantastic apartment in a great location! Layne was so welcoming and had everything prepared to ensure that I had a comfortable stay. I instantly felt at home in the apartment, and I loved the wood floors and artwork. There were many unique restaurants just one street away, and I wish that I could have tried more of them! I highly recommend staying here.

I stayed with Layne for a month. Everything was perfect and Layne was a great host. Responsive, accommodating, and welcoming. Living amongst her art was very special. Chicago is a great city and this is in a great neighborhood for exploring.

My friend and I stayed in this apartment while finishing up our final sememster of grad school. The apartment provided a comfortable place to come home to after long days of study. We enjoyed seeing Layne's beautiful paintings in the apartment as well! The neighborhood has everything one would need and more and was very accessible to other places. Layne was friendly, gave us privacy, but was prompt to respond with any questions. It was an excellent stay.

Layne's place was fantastic. We arrived late and she was extremely accommodating and communicative. Her place is gorgeous, spacious, and in a great neighborhood. We even had free parking permits provided. Layne seems like a super interesting person, so hopefully if you stay you'll be lucky enough to meet her.
