Make our beautiful place your home base for easy access to all Chicago area attractions. The speedy train 24/7 Red line or Brown line will have you to the steps of all area sites within minutes; such as Magnificent Mile for the shoppers, Museum Campus for those who wish to explore the Shedd Aquarium, Field and Science and Adler Planetarium. Or if your wish is to wander Navy Pier or take in the beauty of Lake Shore Drive and the miles of lakefront bike paths, this is it. The Bean, Millennium Park, Grant Park, Soldier Field, Navy Pier, Lincoln Park and the free Zoo all easy trips as are neighborhoods like Old Town for a visit to Second City, great restaurants and nightlife or trendy Bucktown and Wicker Park for shopping or food tours. Nearby DePaul and Loyola make this a great stay for parent visits or temporary housing for college students.
Our clean, safe home is nestled conveniently between the Red and Brown Addison train line stops. Just a couple of blocks from the Paulina and a quick walk to the Southport Brown line stops too! The #9 (North and South) and the #152 (East and West) bus stops are at each end of our block.
Wrigley Field is just a short walk from our home and Cubs fans enjoy free parking as our guest for game nites and concerts.
After dark when the "Loop" and downtown sites are desolate, enjoy the uniqueness of one of the best North side neighborhoods, Lakeview. Experience great restaurants, a plethora of bars, shop at our local stores all within walking distance at nearby Lincoln Avenue and Wrigleyville. Just a few blocks away, check out the up and coming Southport Corridor and Music Box Theater.
Share this convenient space with fellow travelers like yourself. Enjoy a wonderful breakfast to get your day started while hearing about other guests journeys. Wind down at the end of a long day of site seeing on one of 3 outdoor decks. Learn about where fellow travelers are from and where they are headed. Enjoy impromptu s'mores in the fire pit or a glass of wine with other guests and hosts.
This is an incredibly spacious place for a city dwelling! Great eat in kitchen, wonderful gas burning fireplace for those cold chilly evenings and enormous decks to enjoy the fresh air and sun as well as an amazing view of the city Skyline.
We've got it all! Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and Jewel Osco are just a couple of blocks. We provide Wifi, cable TV, parking, etc. We love hosting out of town guests and ensuring they have a great experience. We realize you are either on vacation or here for business and want you to feel right at home. Whatever we can do to make this a memorable trip, please let us know.
Great way to "live like a local" while exploring the city.
Be our guests! Be our guests! Be our guests :)

Great location within walking distance of the train. Chris and Stephanie were very accommodating hosts.
What a great place to stay! Chris and Stephanie were sooo helpful and made our stay memorable. Upon arriving, Chris invited us to go with him and meet up with Stephanie at a local beach that we would have never visited on our own, amazing. So accommodating and helpful without being intrusive, great combination! The home has a great layout that allows everyone space for their own needs. Very well organized host/hostess, maps and brochures, parking passes, bagels, coffee, teas, snacks...wonderful first airbnb experience!
Our stay was great. It was my first time using Air BnB, so I wasn't entirely sure what to expect. Chris and Stephanie were very hospitable and incredibly helpful. It was my group's first time to Chicago and they offered directions and suggestions for everything from food to hang out spots. The neighborhood was great and real easy to get to/from public transit. If you get a chance, ask Chris about his jerky- its incredible. I highly recommend staying here if you are in the area and are looking for a place to stay.
Thomas, Drew and Michael were in town for a White Sox/Braves game, running a 5K in Grant Park and enjoying the nite life in Wrigley. A friend of theirs who lives in Chicago recommended our neighborhood for their trip. We were happy that these first time Airbnb'rs choose us and our home for their Chicago get away. We appreciate all of the wonderful things they have pointed out about us and our convenient and fun neighborhood. Great guests are always welcome!
Chris And Stephanie Were Awesome! Very Welcoming And Helpful. I Would Highly Reccomend Staying With Them If Staying In The Wrigleyville Area.
John was a one nite only stay on a Saturday nite to catch a Cubs game and a Hawks game for his birthday. He made the arrangements for a group of his friends to book the "enormous" room and they were great guests! We appreciate that everyone was respectful of us, our home and other guests and easy to communicate with from beginning to end and would welcome them back anytime.
I totally recommend this house if you want to meet people from all over the world and discover Chicago from north to south. The neighborhood is calm and safe and close to Wrigley Fields, house of Chicago Cubs.
"Where Travelers Meet" is a concept that continually amazes us. For the most part, we do have guests with very busy and full schedules trying to fit in all of their plans to see as much as Chicago as possible with their friends, family and travel companions. The amazing part is how smoothly it all works out-So many times over breakfast around the kitchen counter/tables or at the end of a day of exploration on our decks we hear the laughter and chatting of our guests-those that just wish to remain within their group seem to have the space to themselves and then almost like their is a schedule, they are on their way and the next group gathers. Nothing makes us more happy to experience the joyous echoes throughout our home and we feel we have hit a home run:) We also know how it feels to be able to speak to other people in your home language and give your translating brain a break for awhile. This was certainly the case with Andres' group of friends and some repeat guests that were also from Spain.
Thank you so much! ! I have an extremely busy lifestyle and this was a great last minute find for me. I could not be happier. A fantastic experience and great, accommodating, and friendly hosts. The dog is also precious. I was in town to attend the most important conference of my academic life and this was a superb deal. I had no problem getting close to the downtown via the brown/red lines. I also met a couple of girls who were also very outgoing and friendly (from Germany). I also appreciated the hosts interaction(s) with all of the guests. It was very warm and welcoming. If I were you, I would stay here! I spend a lot of time in Chicago working and this is a great neighborhood as well. Thanks again and I wish you the best!
Chris and Stephanie are the nicest and most chill host that you can ever have. They have a lovely kitchen and every is very neat, clean. It is very comfortable to live and sleep. I enjoyed my two days in Chicago there. They also have a very cute dog called Penny.
I really appreciate the immediate reply to my call when I get lost. It is very helpful :)
Sindi was such a great guest! We loved her independent and adventurous spirit. She shared our love of not only exploring all of the wonders of this amazing city, but she also shared our love of great food and fabulous local coffee shops. It was great to compare notes on our experiences. We would welcome her anytime.
Chris and Stephanie and amazing! I come to Chicago a lot for work, and their home is the perfect place for me to come in and out as I need. It's a very safe and hip neighborhood close to great restaurants and shopping, but it's quiet enough to relax away from the craziness of the city.
Great hosts, very accommodating even picked us up from the train. Will be back
Cris and Stephanie were really great hosts -- super friendly and very flexible schedule-wise. The shared house is in a ideal Wrigleyville location that is close to two train stops and several bus routes. If you have a larger party -- between, say, 4 and 10 people -- you will likely have private rooms and/or an entire floor to yourself. The entire building is kept exceptionally clean, and there are several amenities, including modern restrooms, coffee & kitchen snacks, and a backyard with several balconies. Their friendly dog, Penny, was on site the whole time, and although she mostly followed Cris around as he was setting up and cleaning, she would gladly come over for a scratch behind the ears. I definitely recommend this location and the hosts for a convenient, affordable, and friendly stay in Chicago.
