The Space


Thanks for checking out our space. This listing is for a private bedroom in our 2 bedroom apartment in the far West Loop. Included in this listing is a private bedroom and separate bathroom with a stand-up shower (not attached). You will have full use of the kitchen which is adjacent to your room both with exceptional views of the city. The whole apartment is 3000 sq ft which includes another master bedroom (our bedroom).

It's a perfect location, minutes from downtown close to a bunch wonderful restaurants, cafes and grocery/liquor store. You can hop on the Grand bus and be on Michigan Avenue (or Navy Pier) in about 15-20 minutes.

We are a mile from the train, with quick access to the Ashland & Grand bus are blocks away. We are both really into dining so if you'd like recommendations for any type of restaurant from whether you are looking for a vegan breakfast burrito or bone marrow.

Some other nice features of the space:

Big TV & Stereo next to a nice couch
Gas Fireplace
Wireless Internet
A bunch of nice plants (let's face it, it's a jungle)
A friendly Goldendoodle

If you have any questions or would like more details, please don't hesitate to to ask. Looking forward to hear from you!

We keep to ourselves, but happy to chat and offer recommendations. During the week, we will be at our respective offices during typical business hours. We are homebody's when we are not working so we will most likely be home at night, but go to bed pretty early.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Fantastic experience - the apartment was stunning, our room / bathroom was large, clean and had everything we needed.

    Sam and Linsey were awesome - fun, hospitable and helpful.

    Highly recommended!

  • I stayed at Linsey and Sam's place for 4 days. The place is excellent and beautifully furnished. Everything was large and bright, from my room to kitchen and living room.

    Sam was very professional and helpful at the first contact over email. Both Linsey and Sam were really friendly and we had some very nice discussions and they answer promptly all my questions.

    Location is OK. Its maybe not as nice as Lincoln park, but still worked very well for me. And its safe. Blue line (Chicago stop) is around 10-15 minutes walk, while Brown line (Ashland stop) is around 8-10 minutes away. Brown line was very convenient and fast going downtown. Nearby (2-3 minutes away) is a bus stop down the Ashland av that takes you to the nearby Wicker park. It was also convenient to visit a United center for a game of hockey (around 20-25 minutes walk). There are some nice restaurants around and an organic shop (sadly with limited choice).

    And yes, i would stay again without any doubt!

  • We had a wonderful stay. Pleasant hosts, a super nice breakfast place right at the doorstep, 10 minute walk from the blue line, and some nice restaurants in the neighborhood.
    The house is amazing, very open and quite tastefully designed. Sam and Linsey were very gracious with our requests and also very hospitable.
    Great place and I'd recommend it highly.

  • I stayed with Linsey & Sam for the entire month of January while I transitioned from Boulder to Chicago. They are awesome people who live in a huge, classy space and have the coolest Golden Doodle ever (his name is Eli and he is the jam).

    If you are looking for a place to stay near the West Loop, this is it. I can't recommend these two highly enough. They are awesome roomies, and just generally super solid people.

  • Sam (email hidden) and is an awesome dude. Stay here if you can!

  • Had a great stay in Chicago! The apartment is huge and really beautiful. Sam wasn't at home during my stay, but he was very communicative via e-mail and phone. Also his roommate was very helpful! I'll definitely choose it again when I'm back in town. Thanks a lot!

  • I stayed here in the room for three weeks while I was waiting for the lease on my own apartment to begin. It worked out really well and I cannot recommend Sam's apartment strongly enough.

    First, the apartment is really great. The pictures aren't able to convey how much space there is in there, or how big the windows are and how much light comes in. It's really great. The roof is also excellent, particularly at night when the almost totally uninterrupted view of the entire Chicago skyline is most dramatic.

    Second, Sam is really, really great. Extremely friendly and welcoming without being at all intrusive, clean without being anal, generous, pleasant, and mellow. Also a very funny guy.

    Finally, the dog is awesome. I recommend this place!

  • Sam's loft is located in an awesome area of the West Loop that is very calm and safe. There (email hidden) across the street called The Breakfast Club that looked really cute. The view from the loft is amazing! I could see all of the downtown skyline from my bedroom. There was also an awesome huge sculpture in the parking lot from Kavi Gupta gallery. The loft itself has high ceilings and lots of open space with very cool decor. Sam has very good taste!

    Sam was a great guy, super laid back and cool. He had some great coffee (email hidden) for our morning coffee, and chatted with us before we had to leave. He also runs a community shared work space called The Coop which is quite close-by.

    The room was spacious and we had our own bathroom. There were fresh towels in the bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and I slept well. The entire loft was very clean and smelled like essential oil! We watched some tv in the living room on the flat screen. He had a ton of movies for us to choose from. Why we watched something with Keanu Reeves I am not sure. I would definitely stay again any time! Thanks Sam!
