Set in a lovely greystone in the heart of Lincoln Park, this apartment is all AirBnB and located on a gorgeous woodland avenue with all the area has to offer just outside your front door.

Red Line “El" stop just blocks down Fullerton Avenue. Convenient coin laundry and bike storage in the basement. Recycling program in place. Clean, quiet building; pets welcome. Our guests always comment how wonderful it is for walking and exploring the city!
Our apartment features a new queen-size bed with cushy “topper". Fold-down couch in living room accommodates two additional guests. Tall ceilings, sturdy vintage construction so you won't hear your neighbors. There is air conditioning in both living room and bedroom in addition to ceiling fans in each room, for those folks who enjoy cool breezes without AC. There are hardwood floors and WI-FI throughout in addition to a Dream Machine stereo phone dock/clock radio and flat screen TV (with Netflix, AppleTv and basic cable) in the living room.
The apartment is equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay, whether overnight or for extended periods – linens, ironing board and iron, hair dryer…heck, we even supply Band-Aids and an umbrella.
The kitchen area is fully equipped with seating for three, microwave, stove, oven, full-sized refrigerator, toaster, coffee pot, kettle, pots, plates and cutlery – enough equipment to cook a gourmet meal every night! However, we are not a hotel chain and our pricing reflects this. We do not supply personal toiletries, other than soap, since we expect that you will be bringing your own favorites. If you do run out, there is a convenience store 1 block away.
Street parking is incredibly tight, especially on the weekends and most evenings, but if you are traveling by car, parking is available immediately outside the back door for $10/night.

For my part, I'm a people-person from a family of world travelers; 4th generation Chicago cityboy with experience working in museums, hotels and ecolodges around the globe. I'm a huge nerd for Chicago history and architecture, with great pride in caring for the historic properties my family has lived in, owned & maintained for decades. One of us is always in the city, often while the rest of us travel. Any repairs are handled immediately. A while back, when the unit became in our building (where I had lived for years), we decided to open it for AirBnB guests. Now, having seen great response in one neighborhood, we've moved and added another beautiful location. Living nearby with my partner Alyssa allows us to keep in great touch with our guests, maintaining the gardens and accommodations ourselves, as well as hosting occasional art, music and dining events. I love this work; meeting the folks who come to stay with us is precisely what fuels me on the day-to-day. It's a pleasure to be working with AirBnB and I always look forward to the next batch of guests!
