About this listing

We are located in diverse Rogers Park only a three minute walk to the "EL" (public elevated train) and a two minute walk to the beach and three parks along Lake Michigan. Free street parking is available on most of the surrounding streets. Parking during the weekdays and on Saturdays is usually very easy; conversely difficult at night and on Sundays. Please make sure to park on or north of our block overnight. Enjoy your time taking in the unique restaurants, movie theater and antique shops that are peppered around the neighborhood. Spend your day at the beach or walking along the beautiful lake shore path. If downtown is your fancy, take a 40 minute scenic "EL" ride right past the historic Aragon Ballroom and Wrigley Field, or a 35 minute bus ride down famous and beautiful Lake Shore Drive.
If you like, get to know our three cats: Butters (black and white, male), Bebe (tortoise shell, female) and Ming (calico, female). Please be careful around Ming, our newest addition as she is adjusting to her new life and can her mood can be unpredictable. Butters and especially Bebe are cool cats and touchable.

Don and Lindsay are a laid back young couple who want to meet new people and share their love of Chicago.
Nice neighborhood, clean apartment, comfortable bed, good wifi.
However, a bit impersonal and, for European standards, very expensive for what it is.
We had a fantastic time! Don and Lindsay were very friendly and gave us many different recommendations of places to eat and see. The room we stayed in was very cozy and made us feel at home. The cats are more than friendly! Everything you see in the pictures is the real thing. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
We loved our stay with Don and Lindsay. They have a lovely apartment with a spacious room and bathroom for guests. We felt immediately like home. Don and Lindsay are great, open minded people who we loved talking to. They helped us with everything we needed during our stay. If we ever come back to Chicago, we'd definitely stay with them again ! We would recommend this place to everyone !
Very clean and very accommodating hosts! We enjoyed our stay regardless of our short presence since we were out at town during our stay. We arrived early and Lindsay was nice of us to let us in even though she was still cleaning the room. Highly recommend staying at their place while in Chicago!
Lindsay and Don make us feel very welcome in their nice apartment. The listing description was very accurate. The train station is conveniently close to go everywhere. The neighborhood was good and quite.
I really enjoyed my stay with Lindsay and Don. I really enjoyed the neighborhood, its Ethiopian cafe, organic food store, and Mexican restaurant--not to mention the beach--two or three blocks away. I was busy and I didn't have too much time to explore. Public transportation to downtown is very convenient.
Their apartment is very comfortable. The listing includes a private bathroom, which had everything I needed, from shower gel to hairdryer. I also had the opportunity to use the kitchen and the refrigerator. Everything was sparkling clean.
My bedroom was very comfortable and I felt like I had the right amount of space.
Don and Lindsay are perfect hosts. They were respectful of my privacy when I needed it, and very warm, friendly and welcoming when I was in the mood to socialize. They wanted to make sure I was comfortable asking for everything I needed.
This was a great airbnb first experience!
My son and I enjoyed our stay with Don and Lindsay, as they are very friendly, interesting, and helpful. Their apartment is clean, neat, comfortable, and looks just like the pictures. The neighborhood is nice and close to a number of places to eat. The train is nearby as well. The cats are adorable and friendly. We highly recommend their apartment and would certainly stay there again.
