About this listing
Your private room is located in one of the best neighborhoods in Chicago. We are located in Bucktown and are a 15 minute walk (one el stop away) from both Wicker Park and Logan Square. Enjoy a true Chicago experience.
Your comfortable, private room is located in the first floor apartment of our private home. We use the first floor as a freelance graphic design office. Your bedroom is one of two rooms we offer on airbnb (the other room is (website hidden)). The room is always completely private, and the rest of the apartment is for your use as well. The office space is generally in use during business hours, but we use it during nights and weekends since I use the space to oil paint as well.
We have three kids who may wake up at 6:30 and start running around. They do not realize how this sounds to our guest and they are working on it. You will have to consider this as part of the experience. The bonus is that you won't sleep in by accident.
The room has a queen size futon bed, lighting for reading, a computer for staying connected and streaming movies, a closet for storage, and a full-length mirror. It's a small room, but has everything you need.
The unit has a separate entrance for the rest of the house, so you can come and go with privacy. You have access to the unit which includes a kitchen, bath, dining area, reading area, and WiFi. You will also be able to relax in our back yard garden with a patio, canopy, grill, comfortable seating, and lighting. The general areas are for guests in both room and will be shared.
Interaction with Guests
This is a working office during the days, so there will be phones ringing, music playing, and keyboards clicking during office hours. Once in a while we do have meetings here as well.
We want to give you as much privacy as possible, but we will be available to give you any tips and assistance with your stay in Chicago. Also, there may be other guest staying in the other room. Please respect their stay as well.
Bucktown and Wicker Park are really fun neighborhoods to visit. There are plenty of shops, restaurants, bar, coffee shops, and clubs. There is a free pool a block away.
We're close to major interstates, and have plenty of parking (not all of Chicago can say that). We're a 10 minute walk to the el (blue line) and a 10 minute ride from there. There are also rental bike nearby that can be checked out and returned all over Chicago.
Other Things to Note
No pets, no smoking.
Carrie welcomed us in right away and showed us around their lovely home. It was perfect for our weekend stay and very conveniently located by the subway. Their home looks newly remodeled and had all the essentials and a great bathroom. Excellent hosts! Highly recommended if visiting Wicker Park
Convenient setup, easy check-in. And I was able to park right in front of the house.
We very much enjoyed our stay at Brad and Carrie's. We did not get to meet them in person but they made staying at their home incredibly inviting and easy. Abe was on hand for any additional questions.
The location is amazing and the house was clean, quiet and inviting. We were very happy with our stay and are happy to recommend Brad and Carrie to all of our friends. Thank you!!
The place was really clean, quiet, and well situated. Carrie and Brad were out of town, but their neighbor Abe gave wonderful suggestions which made our stay so much more enjoyable. Highly recommended!
My husband and I had a pleasant stay at Carrie & Brad's. The room was pretty tiny, but we really only needed it for sleeping. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets were soft. Another bonus is free street parking out front! There was some construction going on next door, and also across the street, we didn't hear it from the room, but it was a challenge to get good phone reception in the room and it was too loud to have a professional conversation next to the construction. Brad generously let us use his land line to circumvent the issue. We loved the location, felt safe, and would definitely stay there again.
Carrie and Brad's home in Bucktown is exactly as described. The room was clean and comfortable. There are a few basic necessities supplied, such as towels, wifi, and Netflix.

About the Host, Carrie & Brad
Hi, we are Brad Miller and Carrie Hood. We live in Chicago with our three children. After having such great times traveling with AirBnB to San Francisco and Michigan, we're inspired to try it ourselves. We are excited to host guests and share this great city with travelers.
We rehabbed the bottom unit of our house as a rental unit, but currently use it to run a design business. Our out of town guests stay in that unit, so it's perfect for AirBnB. We're excited to get the best us of our guest space.
It will be a pleasure to share our home that we love.
