Still one of the most-reviewed listings in Chicago!

Convenient to both the Magnificent Mile and the Loop, and very close to major 'L' metro stations, this is a comfortable guestroom in a quiet vintage building in the very popular River North area.

This listing is for one bedroom of a two-bedroom apartment. Guests sleep in the guestroom, I sleep in the other bedroom. There is one shared bathroom.

House Rules

1) Make sure the apartment door is locked and shut every time you leave.
2) No sleeping outside of the guestroom. Guests may use all the common areas, just not for sleeping. This is for both guests' comfort and my comfort.
3) On weeknights quiet hours from 10pm-7am.
4) Please don't use the fireplace.

Final and most important rule:
Enjoy Chicago!

Check-in times:
Check-in time is flexible, but no check-ins prior to 8am. Guests arriving before Noon will be able to drop off bags and get keys, but may not have access to the guestroom itself until after Noon (see check-out guidelines below). Out of 400+ bookings, I've only been unable to accommodate a requested check-in time a handful of times. However, I don't work at home so please be aware that there are occasionally limitations to my availability for checkins. If you absolutely must drop your luggage at a specific time, please check with me prior to sending a booking request to make sure I'll be able to guarantee that I can be there.

Check-out times:
Please be prepared to vacate the room by Noon of the day you leave. I can often be flexible with that, and I can always hold your luggage in the living room if your departure is in the evening, but please be able to move your luggage out of the guestroom by Noon in case I need to prep it for an arriving guest.

Perfect location! The apartment is on the 4th floor, but it's not that bad! I walked everywhere! I stayed alone and felt safe coming back late/night early morning after enjoying the Chicago nightlife. I would definitely stay there again.

Eric is a great host and his place is very clean and comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet but still very central. We walked almost everywhere or used the rental bikes right next to the appartement. Eric's cat makes the short time we spent in the appartement even better. We would totally recommend and stay there again!

This location was simply amazing. Close to everything, we walked everywhere from here. Eric is a great host and very talkative and helpful as well. We also loved Peekaboo ! The apartment was clean and spacious.

Eric's place was the perfect central location for our sightseeing in Chicago. Everything was as described- be prepared to walk up four flights of stairs, his cat stays out of the way but is very sweet, and Eric is easy to communicate with. There was construction going on across the street from his apartment, but (amazingly) we couldn't hear it from inside and so it did not affect us at all. I have no complaints and would stay here again.

Eric User ProfileEric is a superhost.

I live in the apartment and am easy-going and respectful. I do my best to be helpful with advice on the city and to be around to answer local questions.

I enjoy travel, movies, playing with my cat and exploring cities - including my own, Chicago. I grew up on the West Coast in the wine country southwest of Portland, Oregon. I went to university in a small school in Indiana, and ended up staying in the Great Lakes region, first a couple years in Minnesota and in Chicago for the past 20+ years. I've lived in my present place, in the River North neighborhood, for 12+ years now and really enjoy it for its close proximity to so much in the central area and excellent access to transit, while my building still manages to be quiet and peaceful.

I've traveled a fair bit myself, having visited over half of the States here in the U.S., plus Canada (Toronto), Mexico (Yucatan, Cancun, Mexico City), Panama (Panama City), Spain (Madrid, Barcelona), Puerto Rico (San Juan, Vieques, Ponce), France (Paris, Lyon), China (Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Hefei), Sweden (Stockholm), Switzerland (Geneva), the Netherlands (Maastricht), England (London), Austria (Vienna), Norway (Oslo, Bergen, Haugesund, Feoy), Finland (Helsinki), Turkey (Istanbul) and Russia (Moscow, Tver, Novgorod, Leningrad, Khabarovsk, Novosibirsk, Irkutsk) (was still the U.S.S.R. at the time) and Andorra.

I do work full-time outside of the home, but my office is nearby in the event of emergencies and to aid in flexible check-in times.
