The apartment is the entire 2nd floor of a vintage 3 flat facing beautiful Eckhart Park. It gets lots of natural light as the entire east side of the building is lined with windows. There is a master bedroom up front facing the park (king bed), and a smaller 2nd bedroom in the back half of the apt (queen bed). There is also a room set up for massage therapy, but if you just move the massage table and throw down an air matress or sleeping bag you can create a 3rd bedroom. However, if you would like a massage while you're in town I have a list of wonderful massage therapists phone numbers who can come over and take care of you!
The apt is just 1 block off Chicago Ave. with all it's restaurants, bars & neighborhood shops. You're 2 blocks from the blue line, the Ashland bus, & Chicago Ave. bus. Or just a 5 min cab ride to the Magnificent Mile. You're close to downtown & neighborhoods like Wicker Park, Bucktown, & River North.
There is internet access, surround sound throughout the entire house, coin operated laundry in the building ($2 a load), & street parking is non-permit and super easy. Also, we try to be as kind to mother earth as possible, so all bedding & towels are organic or bamboo, non-toxic no VOC paint throughout the house, & green cleaning supplies are used. You may even find an organic snack or two in the cabinets or fridge. Recycling is encouraged & made easy during your stay as well. A great place all around!

We had a lovely time here. Carrie was very accommodating. The apartment was nice and spacious. Should we come back to Chicago to visit would definitely stay here again.
What a neat apartment! Very large space with unique decor! Great for families and friends that may be reuniting due to the large common areas. Multiple dining tables. 1 half bath/1 full bath! One thing that was great was surround sound that travels to all rooms including the bathroom! A few cons- aside from the master bedroom the other two rooms can not really accommodate multiple people. There was also no microwave for quick reheating or popcorn popping. Othere than that, the location was great, very cheap cab ride to anywhere, you can catch a cab by walking a block over to the main road. At the time, we were staying the internet wasn't working but it was an isolated incident and we still had great cell signal.
We had a great stay at Carrie's place! Clean, bright, wonderfully decorated and comfortable for our 3 nights in Chicago. Carrie was a wonderful host, communicated often and made us feel very welcome in her home. Close to the CTA blue line and Chicago bus, the apartment is very easy to get to and is a great starting point for adventures. Would recommend her place to anyone and would totally stay there again in a heartbeat!
Carrie is a wonderful hostess. She made herself very available to answer any questions we had and to offer her assistance whenever we needed. Her home is beautiful, homey, spacious, and impeccably clean. (We slept six there very comfortably!) The location is exceptional. I highly recommend staying with Carrie whenever you're in Chicago!
Carrie's place was an amazing find for my friends and I. The apartment was spacious and had everythingrwe could want. Lots to see on North Milwaukee Ave just north of the place, and not too fsr to walk into the city area. Highly recommend!
We had a great visit to Chicago and Carrie's place was wonderful - very spacious, clean, lots of character and a convenient location and Carrie was fabulous to deal with. She gave us lots of tips on places to eat, shop etc. Beds were very comfortable and the building was quiet. Parking was easy - only busy when a baseball game was going on across the street. I would most definitely want to stay at Carrie's in future!
A few of my friends and I rented Carrie's place for a small gathering. It was such a great space! Plenty of room for me and my friends to comfortably hang out and sleep. I also want to note that there is outside space! A very nice bonus.
Carrie was such a wonderful person to rent from! She even added a a/c unit in her living room upon my request. She was far more than accommodating.
I would highly suggest this space and any other from Carrie! My experience was fantastic!

Carrie's house is very comfortable, and good for family staying. We all like it. I recommend it!!
My family of four plus in-laws had a wonderful time in town for my daughter's third birthday. Carrie was a wonderful host, very easy to communicate with and her place was absolutely perfect for our family. I would highly recommend Carrie and her lovely home to anyone who is traveling to Chicago.
