AN EXCEPTIONAL STAY IN AN ARCHITECTURAL TREASURE. Emil Bach House is one of only a few Frank Lloyd Wright homes that your family/group can enjoy by staying for a weekend, or a week! This home is a professionally managed and meticulously restored Wright original, updated with modern conveniences and comfort. We follow the EPA and CDC guidelines for use of approved disinfectants. You can be assured that we have thoroughly prepared for your stay with intensive disinfecting and cleaning processes.

The space
The entrance into the home and the main floor was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright to be a "journey" for guests to take - from the front walkway, around to the "front" door at the back of the house, through the comfy living room with fireplace, window seating and a dining room that is in both the living and dining area. A full, modern kitchen is available for your group to cook together or store goodies.

There are two guest rooms located on the 2nd floor, each with a balcony, closet, and cable TV. Beds have pillow top mattresses and plush linens, giving you the comfort of a great night's sleep after exploring our beautiful city. There are also 2 full-sized bathrooms on this floor, one with a walk-in shower and one with a combination shower/tub.

A study is also located on the 2nd floor featuring a queen sized pull out sofa bed, closet, balcony, and built-in desk. This space is perfect for additional guests, working remotely, or relaxing.

In the basement, you have access to a half-bath along with a washer and dryer.

Guest access
The rental of Emil Bach House includes access to multiple outdoor spaces and a large yard and garden. The home features ground-level patios, small viewing balconies in each bedroom, and a large 2nd floor balcony with fresh breezes from Lake Michigan just a block away. The grounds feature a Japanese tea house with comfortable seating and doors that open to the gardens.

Private garage parking is included in your stay for two vehicles. Additional street parking is free, but availability is limited. An affordable parking garage with 24/hour security is located just 1.5 blocks from Emil Bach.

Please note that events must be booked separately with the Management company and cannot be booked on-line. Events require a contract and an event rental fee. Events are staffed by the management company and require licensed caterers for the serving of food and beverage to guests whom are not staying in the home.

I enjoy travel immensely; I love to explore new countries and to meet new people. I also have a love for historic homes, as well as the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright. I can’t wait to be your host at both the Emil Bach House and Lang House in Chicago! These neighboring homes are a part of the rich history of architecture in Chicago. They are unique spaces with a lot to offer, and I am proud to be a part of it them. Both Emil Bach House and Lang House are fully licensed and professionally managed Vacation Rentals in Chicago. As your host, we will meet with you and provide a customized experience. I will ensure that you are greeted personally and with a proper tour of the home, gardens and grounds. As a “foodie” - I can help you with the fabulous Chicago food and entertainment scene. Prefer to curl up with a good book? I enjoy that too, and have made every effort to provide comfortable cozy spaces, both indoors and out, for your relaxation. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have, and I look forward to meeting you!
