I believe this place is awesome and hope you will, too! Very special and cozy, this beautifully furnished one bedroom/one bathroom apartment/home is situated in the historic Old Town Triangle one of Chicago's trendiest neighborhoods, two stops from the loop, and one block from main bus routes and three blocks from the "L."
Visitors will have their own private bedroom in this place, which I live full-time. The guest bedroom features beautiful hardwood floors and crisp linens for the ultimate urban retreat. It's clean, spacious and cozy. The apartment is in a 117-year old (constructed in 1895). It's full of character and charm, with lots of natural light. This place has an eclectic, relaxing and quiet environment. Washer and dryer are available. The kitchen is completely stocked and I supply 2 sets of towels for the queen size bed
Free Wi-Fi and iPod/iPhone docking station for music listening. We're close to a number of great bars and restaurants and an easy walk to downtown or Lincoln Park and the lakefront.
I think you will really enjoy this neighborhood. This building is walking distance to everything Chicago has to offer: Lake Michigan and its beaches; Michigan Ave. and its magnificent shopping experiences; Chicago's finest restaurants and bars, live entertainment such as Second City and Zanies comedy clubs are just two blocks away, state of the art health club .
I'm look forward to hearing from you!
There is a convenient public transportation in the area, buses and train. Parking is not easy always, I have some permits to park on the street.
This is an traditional neighborhood and people expect to be very polite and discreet.
The listing was great and the neighborhood was very cool! Betty was a great host and provided wonderful nutritional advice as well!
Betty was an incredibly kind host. She was genuinely curious about my life and explorations. We had a lovely chat upon arriving and she made fresh raspberry bread for breakfast. I would definitely recommend if you are looking for a shared space.
Betty's place really is Zen-like! It's very comfortable and I love the "boho-chic" vibe. The location could not be beat- such a beautiful area of Chicago- very safe and convenient, too. Betty is very friendly and helpful- can't wait to read her book! THANKS, Betty!
Betty made us feel so welcome! Much more like staying with an aunt who lives in the big city. The space was perfect and oh so charming, and the neighborhood was absolutely perfect, cant be beat.
To say that my stay with Betty was amazing would be an understatement. She is so loving and welcoming; I felt like I had known her forever. Her apartment was beautiful, clean, and very relaxing. I kept saying I felt like I was at a spa! The location is absolutely PERFECT! It's an easy walk or bus ride anywhere and I always felt safe. I will definitely be returning to Betty's in the future! Thank you for such a wonderful first experience in Chicago! 3
Staying with Betty was a perfect experience! Her place was beautiful, comfortable and in a great location for walking around and exploring the city. As a host, Betty was so warm and friendly. She wrote me detailed instructions on how to use CTA and even gave me a little to go bag of brownies for the plane ride. It's obvious that Betty puts a lot of thought and love in to making her guests feel at home.
Betty is always a most gracious host. Her place is clean and comfortable and one could not ask for much more. She is only a text or phone call away if you need something. I just completed my fourth stay with Betty and look forward to the next.
