We're a casual, laid-back, hip couple with a teenage son and lovable, well-behaved dog, living in a light-filled house in a gorgeous golf-course setting, just blocks from Metra and CTA to Chicago. You'll have a unique code for the front door keypad and can go in and out without seeing us if that's your preference. You'll have the extra bedroom and across-the-hall private bath on the second, same floor as our family bedrooms, so you might run into us upstairs. We do provide lattes!
The guest room is clean and comfortable, with wood floors, a queen-size bed with lots of pillows, antique dresser, nightstands, good reading lamps, closet with plenty of hangers, rocking chair, portable laptop desk, power strip for charging your electronics, tourist brochures for the area, free high-speed wireless, a fan and AC when needed, and windows that open to our beautiful flower (or snowy!) garden on a quiet street and next to a golf course. You'll have a carafe of fresh, filtered water and probably a small treat. You will have a private bathroom across the hall with tub/shower, basic toiletries. and windows.
Once you book with us, we send out a confirmation email including our address/contact info and docs detailing public transportation options from the airports. We've been taking a break from hosting but we've had lots of happy guests so check out our reviews, and email if you have any questions!
PLEASE NOTE: We are sorry, but we are currently unable to provide breakfast. We do provide access to coffee and tea in our kitchen. If we're here, we'll make it for you, and if we'll be otherwise occupied, we'll make sure you know where everything is. You are welcome to store leftovers in our refrigerator, but we do not offer kitchen use.
Our house is next to a beautiful public golf course, and you are welcome to enjoy our lovely deck with its quiet and peaceful view of the woods, 12th green, golfers, walkers, runners, dog walkers, cross-country skiers and various wildlife.
Interaction with guests
Our own bedrooms and bathroom are on the same level as the guest room, but we keep doors closed and we're extremely respectful of guests' privacy needs. We're pretty busy and not at all intrusive, but we're happy to chat if we're around, have time, and you're into that!
Extra charge for third person does not apply to small children who don't mind sleeping on nice little mattress on the floor (or who kick you out of bed so you can!).
We don't allow use of our kitchen aside from coffee and tea. Happy to store your leftovers in our refrigerator, though!
Plenty of street parking - we supply permit for restricted hours or show you where to park in our driveway.
I'm 54, busy being a mom of a teen, working as a qualitative research consultant (that means I moderate focus groups and the like), designing and selling jewelry, and managing our airbnb guests. I love cooking, yoga, walking, reading, gardening and interior design.
