Our home located in the Forest Park a neighborhood of Chicago. It is a beautiful and well kept house. Just 2 blocks S. of downtown Forest Park, where you will find restaurants, shops, ice cream, and much more. Walk to downtown Oak Park- just 1.5 miles - and visit the city within minutes of getting on the blue line or green line metra trains. All within walking distance. Just 3 blocks from the blue line. This is a beautfiul and safe area. You will love it! Rooms are rented to students from all over the world attending Kaplan and Intrax Language schools. Guest rooms are also rented to AirBnB Guests.
All rooms are provided with new beds (this room has a double bed), fresh bedding, air conditioned (central), fresh towels and self serve breakfast. My Homestay is fantastic.

We have three dogs that are sweet and wonderful. If you are allergic this is not the place for you. Animals lovers preferred. :)
I also have a two flat with a coach house that is located just blocks from my home. Rooms are available or rent the entire flat! Pricing is based on your needs. Rooms rented at the rates listed.
I stayed 7 weeks at the homestay on Lathrop Avenue in Forest Park. Denise was fantastic at accommodating what I needed (e.g. a desk for study), and was extremely helpful in getting set up for my stay, including acquiring a transit card for the CTA system, and helping me to obtain a parking permit for the village of Forest Park. The house is about a 15-minute walk to the Forest Park station, which is the end of the line for the Blue Line trains--total transit time to the Loop downtown is about 1 hour. The house had everything I needed, and Denise continually made improvements to the house to ensure the comfort of her guests, including installing air conditioning units in the kitchens. My room also had an air conditioner, which was nice to have as it got warmer and more humid. In addition to 2 shared kitchens for the guests to use, there is a washing machine and clothes dryer in the basement, which I found convenient. The location of the house is close to some beautiful older homes, including the historic Frank Lloyd Wright homes in nearby Oak Park--about 1 mile away. Grocery stores are relatively close, and there is a Costco in nearby Melrose Park--about 10 minutes by car. Thanks D!
