New to airbnb is my classic vintage Chicago greystone with modern amenities on a historically landmarked street in the Lake View/Boystown neighborhood.

The Space

We are in a turn of the previous century, restored Lake View vintage greystone house located on a quiet tree-lined residential street tucked between the bustle of Wrigleyville and Boystown. Walk to all local amenities, transportation, the beach, shops, cafes, restaurants and nightlife. Three double bedrooms and two marble full baths make this completely modernized living space perfect for 2-6 people.

Guest Access

Basic kitchen for light meals and snacks that functions well (email hidden)
Guest controlled high efficiency central air conditioning and natural gas forced air furnace heating

Interaction with Guests

Upon arrival you can expect an initial greeting, key exchange and introduction to the space and surrounding area. Other than responding to your requests, guests can expect minimal contact from me.

The Neighborhood

I love that Chicago landmarked this block of Newport Avenue to preserve its architectural significance as representative of high quality working class dwellings completed in the 1890's. Today, Newport Avenue and its big city surroundings are a vibrant example of what a diverse community of many cultures can be.

My staff and I are happy to make suggestions and use our resources to help you find what you're looking for to make your stay informed and memorable.

  • Henry was a good host, contacting us on the day of our arrival and meeting us personally to make sure we had everything we needed. The flat was extremely clean, and the pictures are very accurate. The building is located on a beautiful residential street in a great neighborhood. Kitchen dish supply was sparse, but functional.

  • My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Henry's place. It was super super clean, extremely comfortable and had the coolest decorative touches. Having three bedrooms and two bathrooms for our party of five was perfect. The living room (with the buck!) was a great hangout spot at the end of our nights out. We also loved the kitchen.

    The apartment is a short walk from Addison and Belmont on the Red Line. There are lots of fun bars, good restaurants and conveniences in the area. The apartment is somewhat tucked away and is on a quiet street while still being close (email hidden)ly nightlife atmosphere.

    As a host, Henry is welcoming, accommodating, professional and was easily reached before and during our visit. I highly recommend him and his beautiful apartment for anyone looking for accommodations in Chicago.

Howdy, My name is Henry. I'm a longtime Chicago resident and local restauranteur in the Lakeview neighborhood. I recently started a boutique hotel in a historically preserved 3-flat on Newport Avenue nearby where I live. Most people would say I'm easy-going personally but enthusiastic when it comes to hospitality. Since I'm brand new, my focus at the Newport Inn will be about making your experience relaxing, simple and spotless. I think airbnb is going to be a great way to meet guests and friends.
