We have a private bedroom available in our home in Andersonville, a quaint neighborhood in the middle of a world-class city. The bedroom will accommodate two people very comfortably with queen bed, cable, wireless internet, mini-fridge and large window that brings in plenty of light. Shared bath with heated tile floors.
Our outdoor space is fantastic. If you feel like relaxing in the yard all day that's perfect. You can enjoy your morning coffee or evening drinks on our huge deck overlooking our stream and pond.
Say hello to the fish and turtle.
Our home is all access. Feel free to relax any place you feel comfortable.
Interaction with Guests
We work from home and love some distraction from work. :) Both of us enjoy sharing our time with our guests. Join us for coffee in the morning or cocktails in the evening.
We love this neighborhood and hope you will too!
Andersonville is now considered one of Chicago’s “hot” neighborhoods. It also enjoys nationwide renown for its unique commercial district, comprised almost entirely of locally owned, independent businesses. It demonstrates what Andersonville locals have known for a long time: that the locally owned businesses are a crucial part of Andersonville’s vitality and quality of life, returning far more to the community in economic benefits and neighborhood involvement than would non-local businesses. Communities everywhere now look to emulate Andersonville as a model of a thriving urban neighborhood. Visit Andersonville(.)org for more details.
