Classic brick home over 100-years-old rumored to have been designed by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright; in fact, a genuine Wright home is just minutes away as are beach, CTA Red Line and express bus downtown. Located in the Rogers Park neighborhood on Chicago's north side, between Loyola University Chicago and Northwestern University in Evanston and with easy access to both. Walking distance to neighborhood coffee shops, Irish pub, and restaurants, including the iconic Heartland Cafe. Take in music or live theater or spend a pleasant evening on the deck or private balcony.
Room is airy, quiet and comfortable. A second bedroom may also be available, depending on circumstances.
Home is on a quiet, tree-lined street.
Free wifi and netflix. Free off-street parking for one car.
Wood burning fireplace in living room and separate TV room. You have access to backyard deck and house, including kitchen. I fix a pot of hardy coffee in the morning and you can join me for a light breakfast or fix your own with fresh fruit and foods provided.
I have a 5-year-old cat named Nico, shelves full of books and lots of information about the city to share.
Women and couples welcome. Individual men are welcome if there is another woman guest in the home at the same time. Maximum stay: One week.
No smoking or drugs. No food in (website hidden) and wine in moderation allowed.
I stayed at Patricia’s place for 4 weeks and felt like home. Patriacia is a nice, warm and wonderful person. She let me use the oven and microwave to cook my food, and washing machine.
The neighborhood is an awesome place 2 blocks from red line train station with a lot of food mart and restaurant.
I had wonderful stay at this place, I would highly recommend this place.
I am so glad that I stayed at Patricia's place for the last three months of my postdoc! The house is located in a nice neighborhood, and is very close to the CTA trains going to both downtown Chicago and Evanston. Patricia is super kind and helpful. This wonderful living experience helped me finish my postdoc on a high note!
Couldn't have asked for anything more from Patricia or my stay in her beautiful home. The cat is especially friendly and the private room was spacious and homey. I was able to park my car on the street, and it was a very short (less than 5 min) walk to the red line CTA stop. Patricia always had coffee ready for me in the morning, and even stocked up on fruit and OJ when I came down with a cold. I would definitely stay here again.
Patricia was a remarkable host. We stayed at her place for three nights. She was very welcoming, open to suggesting activities in Chicago and we had a very interesting conversation about other cities and about Europe.
The breakfast she provided was very healthy, of quality and very tasty, I loved it. Thanks a lot again! The place is very quiet, very clean and very pretty. We could talk with Patricia but still had privacy (we were not home all day anyway). Plus the cat Nico is as adorable as possible - everything is perfect.
I would definetly recommend her and would definetly come back to her place.
Don't forget that you are very welcome to come over and visit anytime in France! Good luck on your writing!
Patricia assure un accueil de qualité, est une hôtesse hors pair et donne des conseils de visites avisés.
Visiter Chicago devient beaucoup plus facile grâce à son aide.
Patricia is a lovely hostess who provided us with many good suggestions for our visit to Chicago. Her house is in a great location, within walking distance of the Red Line for easy access to get downtown. We highly recommend staying here.
Patricia's house is a comfortable, clean and airy retreat on Chicago's northside. Patricia is very easy going and flexible - communicating travel plans and comings and goings with her has been a breeze. I enjoyed my stay with her and look forward to my next stint at her home this weekend. She provides full kitchen access and complimentary light breakfast fare. I would recommend Patricia's home to anyone making a visit to Chicago - her home is accessible by public transit and she is close to any north side meanderings (the lovely suburbs north of Chicago) you may want to do. Patricia is also lovely to chat with - very knowledgeable about Chicago, the arts, theater, etc.

As a life-long Chicago resident, I know the city well and can tell you best places to visit, where to eat, what to do and how to get there.
As a professional writer and consultant -- and the mother of two young-adult daughters-- I am especially aware of and understand the challenges and rewards of women traveling alone. My favorite cities include: New York, Paris, Toronto, Florence and Venice. I think any mode of transit is good if it gets you to your destination reasonably on time.
As a host, my job is to make you comfortable. I can chat or be quiet, offer as many or as few suggestions as you like and listen to your travel stories or share a few of my own.
