About this listing
Logan Square is a "hot" neighborhood in Chicago - lots of young people, new business and entertainment, excellent transportation central to CTA train, major highways, bike routes, and airport. This apartment is ideal for a couple or family, short term stay or transition move. Our unit is on one of the nicest blocks, with quiet "residential neighborhood" vibe but very short walk to cool coffee shops, boutique grocers and wine shop, top notch restaurants including Longman and Eagle, Buona Terra, Fiore, Lula Cafe, bars, farmers market, and train to downtown. It is a first floor unit in a classic Chicago Greystone with spacious living and dining rooms, den/office, entry way, two bedrooms, and spare closets. Master bedroom has large closet, back bedroom is comfortable but no closet. Kitchen is modern style with good lighting, morning sun, marble "look" island, wood cabinets, and modern appliances, well equipped for people who like to cook. Appealing back porch and nice backyard with patio and garden. Easy street parking, close to California and Logan Square Blue Line, very close access to 90/94, and all restaurants/amenities of Logan Square. Free laundry in basement, and we could make storage space if required. Wifi included. Family friendly block with good schools and neighbors, lots of kids. Freshly painted and cleaned, new Pella windows. Apartment furnished in clean, vintage modern style. Beds for four, we have a Coleman queen mattress for extra people (additional small per person charge above four guests, six people max). We have a two night minimum stay, and have rented for up to several months. We have a two night minimum stay. Due to the cost and time required to clean and prepare for guests, we can make certain exceptions for a one-night stay, but only with an additional $40 cleaning fee.
Parking (and free 24 hour passes), CTA train, walking to many places and amenities.
Interaction with Guests
As little or much as required to make sure everything is OK.
Spacious but bustling urban neighborhood in a great city. There are city rental bikes ("Divvy" bikes) only a half block away on Altgeld, next to Letizia's.
Yep. Car: about three blocks from 90/94. Train: close to two Blue Line stops. Bike: lots of dedicated bike lanes, lots of bicyclists, about 25 minutes to downtown. On foot: Great neighborhood for walking and running. Plane: short trip to O'Hare airport. Neighborhood is very convenient for travelers.
Please inquire for complete house rules list on cancellations, etc. We have a two night minimum.
Great for couple or two couples, big enough for a family of 4 or 5. Nice place for entertaining, or as home base for exploring Logan Square (but no loud parties please).
We may consider a pet if it is a transition in housing.
We work and live in Logan Square, have kids, love our neighborhood and block. Both lifelong Chicago residents. We know a lot of people in Logan Square, neighbors, musicians, artists and other restaurant and business owners. Nancy owns a great deli and grocer, Half Italian Deli, five blocks away.
