About This Listing
Our cozy room is located about 5 minutes from the heart of Wicker Park with plenty of room for 2. Enjoy a great kitchen, outdoor patio, and easy access to all the great spots in the neighborhood as well as public transport.
The space is located at 2250. W. North Ave. It is a great building just west of the heart of Wicker Park. The room is a great space as well. With windows facing east, there is tons of sunlight during the day. It has a queen bed, night stand, lamp, closet with hangers, and built in shelves in the wall. The rest of the space is great too, spacious living room, dining room table, desk to work at, kitchen, bathroom, and in unit washer dryer.
Expect to have plenty of privacy. My girlfriend and I work during the day and are often gone during most weekends. On weeknights, we are either reading or catching up on a good TV show.
The neighborhood is fantastic. Wicker Park is the artistic heart of Chicago and the stores reflect that. From great food to great book stores, Wicker Park has just about everything you're looking for. Great restaurants and coffee shops are within walking distance.
Another thing within walking distance is the blue line. The train will get you anywhere in the city and it goes straight to the airport!
Our home is your home. We only ask that you clean up after yourself.
Interaction with Guests
We both work so interaction is pretty minimal however I always have my phone on me if you need anything!
Wicker Park is a great neighborhood especially if you are creative. Great concerts, great restaurants, great bars, and cafes. There is a great cafe called 'Bake' just next door.
We are a 5 minute walk from the blue line of the Chicago Transit Authority which will take you directly downtown or to O'Hare International Airport.
Other Things to Note
We do have in house washer/dryer for $5/load.
We do have in home washer/dryer for your use for $5/load.

Don't be a jerk. Smoking is prohibited indoors but we do have an outdoor patio where smoking is permitted.
Steve is the man. End of story. Spent my last night hanging out and telling stories with steve, an Australian (who was in the other airbnb room) and my girlfriend. Looking forward to another visit to Chicago.
Steven was an extremely friendly and welcoming host! The apartment is exactly as described and the room is perfectly comfortable (and well air-conditioned if you happen to be there on a hot day). Everything went very smoothly and staying with Steven made my trip a breeze. Great for someone looking for a minimal and simple place to stay.
Great and pleasant experience!!!!! Steven and his girlfriend are very welcoming!!! My husband and I felt at home, we found a very warm atmosphere. The place was clean. Steven gave us a few good tips where to eat. The neighborhood felt safe for us. There are a lot of restaurants at walk distance to Steven's place. We reccomand Steven. If we go back to Chicago we would definitely stay at his place again!!!!
What a great stay! The apartment was very appealing in style with lots of natural lighting and a porch in the back! The bed was comfortable, the sheets were clean, and the temperature was great. The location is prime as its very near the blue line and also near many great bars, but in a quiet enough part of the neighborhood (which is great for when one is trying to fall asleep.) This was an amazing deal that I'm so grateful to have discovered! Thank you Steve and Sadie!

About the Host, Steven
I am originally from Michigan and live in Chicago now. If I could get paid to go camping for the rest of my life, I would do that...but I can't. I love camping, I love music, I love biking. I really enjoy a good beer and playing some guitar. Someday I hope to make a living off of playing music and owning a small language school.
At our space, you can expect privacy, and a relaxed environment. We have hosted travelers from all over the world, and since traveling is our passion as well, we treat our guests as you would a friend, with respect.
