  • Special and unforgettable. That describes our stay. his was the first time ever, being abroad and coming home at the same time. Lindsay and Dons Home was more than we would picture a highly ratet Star Hotel. Not only the cleanness, comfort and included service were unforgettable but also the whole atmosphere. It was so hard ti leave this wonderful home. Also the two of them self are so kind, sympathy and easy to let in your heart. Would not want to miss this experience and highly recommend to stay at Lindsay and Dons if you want a perfect start (and ongoing time) into your Chicago stay.

  • This was my first time using airbnb and it was great. Don & Lindsay's place was super clean, the bed was really comfortable & the cats were the sweetest! The place is super close to great restaurants & there's a train stop just around the corner. I highly recommend staying here on your next trip to Chicago.

  • This was our first experience using AirBnB, so we approached it will a little bit of trepidation. That, combined with an arrival around 1 am, made us a little nervous, even though we had been assured an arrival at that time was ok.

    I have to say, though, there was no need to have been nervous. Everything went smoothly with our arrival at such an hour. We were very pleased with the accommodation and were made to feel very welcome in Don and Lindsay's home. It is decorated beautifully and the room and private bathroom were quite comfortable. It was a great location, in Rogers Park and was just a short walk to the Morse Station on the Red Line.

    We enjoyed our stay and enjoyed getting to know Don and Lindsay. We definitely recommend their home if you are visiting Chicago.

  • We had a great time while in Chicago. All though we did not spend that much time at our hosts residence we were always invited and welcomed to any invite they were hosting which gave us a home-like feel!! Great location also!

    March 2014
  • Don and Lindsay were AMAZING hosts. We could not have had a better trip!! Morse cta stop is only 3 blocks away so the city is sooo accessible. Act one had some amazing food and a fabulous brunch!! (It's right before the train stop in mayne theatre). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were would absolutely return and stay with Don and Lindsay. Did I mention their place is beautiful?

    March 2014
  • This is a fantastic place to stay!! Their apt is beautiful, clean and airy. The bedroom is comfortably furnished (bed is great!) and guests have their own bathroom. Don and Lindsay are welcoming and friendly and I really felt quite at home. It's also in a great location in Rogers Park (and just 1 block from my son :) ). I highly recommend it...and I intend to return!!

    March 2014
  • My girlfriend and I spent two nights in Don and Lindsay's home last weekend. We had a wonderful stay! They were friendly, helpful and our room (and bathroom) was clean and nicely decorated. We were made feel very welcome and I would recommend staying with Don and Lindsay if you are taking a trip to Chicago!

    March 2014
  • Don and Lindsay were very gracious hosts. They gave clear instructions about accessing the space and a lot of information about navigating the city. The space was lovely and.very clean. They were kind enough to help us deal with our large amount of luggage as well. The apartment's location was awesome- very convenient to the red line and the immediate neighborhood was interesting to explore. I'd highly recommend them as hosts!
