About this listing
Our comfortable private room with open windows and light is a great place to rest while traveling in Chicago! Our apartment is located in a great Chicago neighborhood and only steps from the train station to take you downtown to all the sites.
Come stay in our cozy second bedroom! We're a laid back couple who love to meet new people. Our apartment is warm and welcoming and we are happy to share our small second bedroom with guests. We welcomed a new kitten a few months ago who is very friendly, please keep that in mind when booking.
You'll be staying in our well-lit, second bedroom on a full size-6 inch thick-futon. The futon fits one person comfortably and two people have happily stayed many times, but it is more cozy! There is a small desk for your laptop/work if needed. It is a small room, but has everything you need.
Clean sheets and towels provided with access to our shared bathroom with a small clawfoot tub/shower. Free wifi available.
We're outgoing people and are happy to help with any questions you might have or advice you need to have a great time in the city! We will respect your privacy, but will always be responsive to your needs and happy to help!
You'll have access to our shared bathroom which includes a club foot shower. We provide an area in the bathroom for guests to hold their toiletries etc. You'll also have access to our full kitchen and beautiful shared deck outside with chairs and a table.
Interaction with Guests
We both work full time, but when we're around at night and in the morning we're always happy to chat, give directions and suggestions, and some nights to hang out! In the past we've had guests share dinner occasionally with us and if you're lucky, Joe will make his famous biscuits to share on Sunday morning.
We love our neighborhood! We've lived here 4 years. It's a quiet neighborhood and easily accessible by public transit to any other neighborhoods you'd like to get to. We have lots of great restaurants and bars nearby, but not a huge loud late night scene.
Our apartment is perfectly located for public transit. We are 1.5 blocks from the Montrose Brown Line stop which will take you to downtown and about a 7 minute trip on the line from other great neighborhoods like Lakeview and Lincoln Park, etc. We also live on the corner of multiple bus lines. One bus outside our apartment will take you straight to Lake Michigan and Montrose Harbor/Beach. The other going south will take you down to Wicker Park - with lots of great restaurants/bar scene.
Other Things to Note
As of a few months ago we have a new addition to our home, a 10 month old kitten named Pete. He's very sweet and friendly, but please keep this in mind when booking if it will be an issue for you.
Be nice, courteous, you know - the golden rule.
Please smoke outside on the deck
