About This Listing
WELCOME! Large private room & bathroom with private entrance in a safe and bustling neighborhood. Everything you need for a cozy stay.
Hello new friends! :)
Private room AND bathroom with 2 twin size beds and 1 pull out full size couch (sleeps 3-4 people) with fresh linens and towels.
2 BLOCKS FROM THE TRAIN! Plenty of bus lines.
I have 2 dogs (the first photo is of Hilde in a tutu!) that live with me upstairs (completely separated from your space). You may see them in the backyard if we're playing, or in the front on their walks, but they are not allowed in your space....unless you bribe them with dog treats! :)
Located in Lincoln Park/Lakeview which is a very SAFE and FUN neighborhood located close to downtown and great public transportation. One of Chicago's most popular, bustling and gorgeous neighborhoods with tree-lined streets and million dollar houses.
3 BLOCKS FROM THE TRAIN! (Can I get a wooohoo!?) There are also a ton of buses, bars, awesome shopping, and endless things to do! 20 minute walk to the lake (or 5 minutes by car).
I LIVE ON THE PROPERTY AND WORK ONLY A FEW MINUTES AWAY, SO CHECK IN SHOULD BE A BREEZE! :) Just let me know when you plan on arriving/departing and I'll make sure to be around when you arrive.
Don't be scared by the gloomy entrance. This room IS located in our basement, but the bedroom and bathroom are clean and cozy. It's also nice and cool down there which is perfect for our hot summers! Your room also has a fan in it and space heater. I live upstairs just in case you need anything.
We are located between downtown (15 minutes) and Wrigley Field (5 minutes). Easy to get to whether you are taking public transportation or a car.

If I have back-to-back reservations, I may ask that you check out no later than 11am, and for the next guest to check in after 12pm so that I have enough time to clean. But I am flexible and will try to work with everyone's schedule. Your are always welcome to drop off your luggage before your check in time, or leave it here during the day so that you can explore and come back for it later.
Guests will have their own private entrance. Room is separate from the rest of the house.
Interaction with Guests
I will check you in, otherwise unless you need something, you probably won't see me again. I try to give you your privacy. :)
Located in Lincoln Park which is a very SAFE neighborhood located close to downtown and extremely close to public transportation. One of Chicago's most popular, bustling and gorgeous neighborhoods with tree-lined streets and million dollar houses.
2 blocks from the Wellington Brown Line Stop and tons of buses!
15 minutes to downtown by train or car
5 minutes to Wrigley Field by train or 15 minute walk
5 minutes to the lake by car/bus or 20 minute walk
25 minute drive from both O'Hare and Midway airports (or take the train) and transfer to the brown line
No smoking or drugs in the house please. Please also do not have outside guests in the room unless you ask first.
NO TAMPONS DOWN THE TOILET! (Unless you want a non-working toilet during your stay). That might be kind of gross...and smelly.
A true airbnb experience. I stayed at Marie's place for weeks and she made everything she could to make it a comfortable stay. A great neighborhood, so close to the train lines and just 20 mins to the downtown. I stayed at a few other airbnb hosts too but .Marie was totally the best of all. Highly recommended
My friend and I very much enjoyed staying at this location. We made a very last-minute request (12:30 a.m., and we needed to check in later that day!) and Marie immediately responded. Everything was clean and tidy and the location can't be beat. The neighbors directly above us were a little loud, but other than that, we had no complaints!
Marie was very responsive and a great host overall. The room is cozy and the bathroom is very nice and clean. As expected the room was cold during the winter months but the portable heater warms it up nicely.(request additional heaters if you like your room really really warm) The location(2.5 blocks from Brown Line Wellington stop) was hard to beat. Would definitely stay there again in the future.
My father reports that Marie gave him a lovely experience, and was a great host.
When I come to Chicago I keep staying with Marie because I know that here I will always find hospitable, clean, warm and comfortable place. So it's my fourth coming and fourth stay with Marie. The district is very safe too, very convenient location, lots of shops and close to the lake and all the transport stops.
Marie's room has all the facilities to make your stay comfortable and independent though she is always accessible and at help if you need it. I had to make some changes to the dates of my stay and it was no problem. No problems at all!!! That was great! Thank you, Marie!
I stayed at Marie's place for three nights, the room and the bathroom are very clean. Also, the neighborhood is nice and quite. I met Marie one time when she checked me in, she made sure that I'm comfortable and have everything I need. Overall, I will definitely recommend her place for anyone who's looking for a nice clean and private place to stay at.

About the Host, Marie
I'm a pretty chill but fun person. I'm a fashion designer and manage my online company from home. I love traveling, exploring, and people who can throw back a beer and have a good laugh. I'm a pretty physically active person, and I love to snowboard and sail. Ok, I'll pretty much do anything that involves snow or water, but hang gliding is next on my list! Don't let the fashion bling fool you, I like to get my hands dirty too. :)
