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.
Don and Lindsay's apartment was very nice. We only met Don briefly, but correspondence with Lindsay was very prompt and friendly. It is close to the Red Line and we felt safe walking at night. Highly recommended!
Don and Lindsay are very nice hosts very thoughtful and accomodating. The place is beautiful and very comfortable, great location to so much to do.
We had a great time at Lindsay and Don apartment. Everything was very clean, cozy and organized. The localization is pretty good, they live in a very interesting neighborhood and it is close to the red line, so it is easy to get to anywhere in Chicago (it takes around 35 minutes to get to downtown). They are very nice and friendly hostess. We really loved the weekend that we spend there and we definitely recommend it.
We had such a great time staying at Don & Lindsay's. The house was lovely, the bed was comfy, the cats were cute, and the couple was helpful & friendly, although we didn't see them much.:) They really went above & beyond to make it a great place to stay-- written instructions, everything clean & fresh. They set the bar high!
Dan and Lindsey are very welcoming and friendly hosts. The house is very clean and comfortable and also beautifully decorated. I can totally recommend this place :)
Our experience was great and very welcoming. It is a smooth process to get settled in and they are very attentive to make sure you feel right at home. Beautiful decorations and the room feels like a boutique hotel. The private bathroom is a plus! Location is right next to the red line making travel and adventure easy. All in all great experience and very worth the price!
