About this listing
Touring musician's studio apartment in Chicago's Logan Square neighborhood.
While I am a musician by trade, I like to design and create things. As you can see, my apartment is full of pieces that I've made from scratch or repurposed - old doors, plumbing pipe, milk crates, whatever else I can find that catches my eye! While most studio apartments in Chicago are tiny, this one is spacious with room for 2 in the full-size bed and one on the sofa if necessary. There is also a separate kitchen, dining room, bathroom with shower and tub, closet, and coin laundry downstairs.
This apartment is in Chicago's Logan Square neighborhood, on the near northwest side of the city. You have easy access to the Blue Line at Logan Square (to O'Hare, downtown, Wicker Park, etc.), and the Fullerton bus (east to Lincoln Park and the lakefront). The neighborhood is full of the best restaurants and bars in the city. Some of my favorites are Scofflaw (recently named the Best Bar in Chicago), Tula, Wasabi, The Boiler Room, and Revolution Brewing. There is also plenty of live music nearby at places like Cole's Bar and The Whistler. For your groceries, The Dill Pickle Food Co-Op is close-by, and Cermak Produce and Tony's are within walking distance.
Parking is safe, free, and relatively easy on nearby streets, and the area is extremely bike-friendly.
I am a professional musician and educator in Chicago, originally from Indiana. Other than playing music, I like to stay active, eat well, and hang out with my dog, Moose.
I ask that you treat my house with respect. Please take care not to damage any of my furniture or belongings, and clean up any messes you make. As long as the apartment looks as good when you leave as it did when you arrived, I will be happy!
No smoking inside the apartment - there is a back deck if you'd like to smoke.
Nice appt located a few blocks away from Logan Square. Perfect for a getaway from Downtown. However, cleaning was not okay (bed sheets not changed, dust/hair/etc not wiped off) even tho Charles offered to refund these fees.
What a wonderful experience we had at Charles' lovely flat in Logan Square. Lit was spacious, clean and very stylishly decorated. Everything you'd need for a fun stay in one of Chicago's best neighborhoods. Charles was very helpful and extremely responsive. We had no problem checking in and the building feels safe and secure. If you and your partner are looking for a great spot in Chicago, look no further than Charles' place.
Charles' place was absolutely perfect for our needs! If you're looking for an economical alternative to the crazy downtown Chicago hotel rates- look no further! The space itself is well-designed, clean and super comfortable. The location was ideal, giving us convenient and easy access to the city, while also being far enough away from the touristy parts of town. Charles was very quick to respond to all of our questions / messages, and though we didn't get to meet him in-person (unfortunately), he seems like a super cool guy. Can't recommend this place enough! Thanks, Charles!
Charles place is beautiful and in a very nice neighbourhood, near to Logan Square and the blue line. At Logan Square you can also find a couple of bars and cafés. The appartement was clean and everything went smoothly. We'd definitely recommend his place! Thanks again!
Charles has a nice place that is ideally located in Logan Square. Keys were easy to obtain through a third party even though Charles was not in town. Walk to the nearest L station is approximately 15 minutes, which allows you quick access to all of downtown Chicago. There is also a nearby Walgreens for quick pickup of any toiletries you may need. Parking, as far as I know, is free on the street level. Charles' apartment is well kept and well represented in the photos. He is quick to communicate and provide advice if necessary. Thanks for the smooth trip!
Though could use a good clean.
