This is a fantastic location. Beautiful home, newly remodeled with stain glass, new bath and kitchen, air conditioning, wi-fi. New bedding and spacious rooms! Walk to the blue line or green line, just minutes from downtown Chicago. Walk to downtown Forest Park or Oak Park. This area is so wonderful!
Room was clean and warm with easy access to the Loyola campus. Difficult to get to the house from the airport on public transportation (1.5 hours) and a $40 dollar cab ride. Otherwise, a fine place to spend a night.
Denise is a really nice person to meet and she is helpful if there is anything she can do for you!
Denise Is A Great Host WhoTook Me For A Tour Of The Neighborhood When I Arrived. Her Place Is Clean And Comfortable. 10 Min Walk To The BlueLine And 15 To Greenline.
The place was nice and clean, the host is very friendly and welcoming, the place is a close walk to the CTA station, very convenient. Was overall a very good experience!
Comfortable and great hospitality. Denise is very helpful and nice. recommended
It's was nice. The host was very polite and she was always helpful,
Denise was an absolutely fantastic host, picking us up from the station and even giving us a little tour of Forest Park so we felt right at home. Our room was lovely - clean, bright and with everything we needed (a fan, air con, lots of storage) and everyone we met was friendly. Our stay was incredible value and I couldn't recommend staying here enough.
Denise was about as close to a perfect host as possible. She was always available to help, with a welcoming smile on her face, and clearly did everything she could to make all of her guests feel at home. The house and coach house are both very comfortable and well stocked with breakfast foods, wifi, air conditioning, and other amenities that make them a place that any guest would be happy to come back to at the end of the day. The town is cosy, with plenty of stores, restaurants, and bars a short walk away. The train station into the loop is an easy 10 minute walk from the house and very convenient for commuters such as myself. I would wholeheartedly recommend staying with Denise to anyone!
Nice rooms, friendly host, clean, and at a fair price.
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!
