The apartment has its own private ground floor entrance, living room, kitchen, full bath, and dining and sleeping area. The sleeping area and bed are partitioned from the dining area. It is located in a beautiful historic neighborhood and a 5 minute walk to the lake. The transit station is a block away: a 10 minute ride to downtown (or a 1/2 hour walk along beach from house to downtown).

The space
This is a private ground floor studio apartment with its own private entrance in a restored victorian home in a lovely and leafy historic district in Chicago. It is often said to be the best location in the city. From the house it's a five minute walk to Lake Michigan and an additional 20 minute walk along the lake front to downtown Chicago. Or you can catch the train at the Sedgwick station, 1 block south, with connections to all points of the city and to both airports. 2 blocks to the east is Wells Street, home to the world famous Second City Comedy Club, along with restaurants, music clubs, pubs, boutiques, and galleries. In the neighborhood you will find beautifully restored historic homes and local pubs that have been here for generations. the 500 SF space has a restored Victorian interior with the original tin walls and ceiling, and a small but modern equipped kitchen and a new bathroom with tub. Coffee and some simple pantry staples will be provided. The living space is an open layout with the queen bed separated from the rest of the living space by an armoire. There is a living room, dining area, small kitchen, and full bathroom. In the winter months guests may use the gas fire place, but instruction by host is required for use. Air-condtioning is controlled by the guests in the summer from June till fall.
Also provided are Wifi, TV, and guest parking passes for overnight street parking.

I had been working in the visual arts for many years as a designer and art director and returned to school to become a civil engineer. Now I work as an engineer and paint in my free time - loving both disciplines.

During your stay

It is a private space with a private entrance and as such I give my guests total privacy after arrival. The apartment has a keyless entry using a keypad coded lock so there is no key exchange. I do make an attempt to meet guests on arrival but once they are settled in, I am not intrusive. I occupy the upper stories of the house.
