About this listing
Get to know Chicago by jumping off from a Classic Logan Square Bungalow. My 100+ year old home is a great place to explore the city from the coolest neighborhood in town. And I will give you tips to see/ do/ eat the best Chicago has to offer.
The house was built in 1908 and has all of the charm of an old home, but with all of the modern conveniences of today (wireless internet, AC, television, etc). The guest room is comfortable with a double bed, dresser, mirror, ceiling fan, a window air conditioning unit (summer months only), two chairs, cd player, record player (on request) and a storage rack for hanging clothes. I provide current issues of the Chicago Reader for the curious traveler. There is a washer/ dryer in the basement and a kitchen is available. The kitchen was completely remodeled in September 2011 and was voted as a finalist in the 2012 Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Awards presented by the Historic Chicago Bungalow Association. The first floor bath was also remodeled in January of 2012 and a brand new second floor bathroom was added in the spring of 2014.
You will have full access to most of the house. Including sun room, back yard, kitchen and washer and dryer. Breakfast will not be offered in house, but I do provide gift cards to New Wave Coffee. A funky neighborhood coffee shop that provides great coffee, tea and breakfast options. New Wave is a short three block walk from my place.

My place is located in the greatest part of Logan Square. Logan Square is a dynamic neighborhood where tons of great things happen. Short walks to the Centennial Monument, Lula Cafe, The Logan Square Farmers Markets (summer and winter), Longman and Eagle, The Owl, Palmer Square, Parts and Labor, Wolfbait and B Girls, The Logan Square Auditorium, Jam, The Congress Theater, Revolution Brewing, Boulevard Bike Shop, The Rocking Horse, The Whistler, shopping, art, parks and everything else Logan Square has to offer.
The house is located near many modes of transportation. It's just a seven minute walk to the Logan Square train stop on the Blue Line or a ten minute walk to the California Blue Line stop. The #74 Fullerton bus stop is a three minute walk and the #56 Milwaukee bus stop is two minutes away. Zipcar and IGo pickup locations are very close as is the Kennedy expressway. There is also easy, safe, permit-free parking on the street. You can usually find a spot directly in front.
