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.
Interaction with Guests
I love to interact with my guests. I have been a resident of Chicago since 1995 and a proud resident of the Logan Square neighborhood since 2000. I am an avid traveler and I love to provide insightful information and tips to fellow travelers.You will also be able to reach me via phone/ text.
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.

The host was wonderful. He was waiting for us when we arrived. The place did not have a spec of dust anywhere and was very neat. The bathroom has nice large shower. It is a 10 minute walk to the Logan Square. I definitely will stay again when we I go to Chicago again. Thanks Mark for making it our Chicago trip wonderful!
The Classic Logan Square Bungalow hosted by Mark Diserio was fantastic. Mark is very personable and did his best to make sure I was comfortable. The location to public transportation can't be beat, and the neighborhood has a variety of interesting spots to eat and drink. I would definitely book Mark's space again. The house is beautiful, comfortable and very clean. And Mark is the perfect host. Loved it!
Another 5 star review for Mark and his place. Short and sweet: this is an exceptional place and a great value - save your time searching and stay here.
I searched far and wide for listings. Next time in Chicago I'll come straight to Mark. He has a super comfortable place that is immaculately clean (an important piece for me). The new bathroom adjacent to bedroom is exceptional. Location is very convenient to train and Mark is a great resource for information. A stand up guy and a first class place.
Fantastic room, beautiful house, great neighborhood. What more can anyone ask for? We thoroughly enjoyed staying here and getting to know our host. Mark, thanks for making our 10-day stay perfect!
Mark is a great host! He really makes sure you have everything you need and is easily accessible. We definitely felt most welcome right from the beginning.
Mark was very warm and welcoming, providing me with a quick neighborhood tour, a binder filled with local information, local magazines with event ideas, and kind recommendations based on my interests.
His home is very tastefully decorated and incredibly clean. The bedroom photographed in his listing is very comfortable. The bathroom is newly renovated and very chic!
Logan Square is very hip and safe. There are several excellent restaurants, including the well-reviewed, Lula's, just at the end of Mark's street. The blue line is a 5 minute walk from the house providing you with easy access to anywhere you want to go in the city.
You'll love staying with Mark. I highly recommend his place.
I had a great stay! Room looks exactly like the picture. Clean place and great location.
