Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My husband and I loved our stay at Lynn's and would highly recommend her apartment and her as a host. The apartment was clean and inviting with a warm atmosphere. It was obvious to us that the apartment exterior and interior are well maintained with regular care and attention. Having the notebook to read was very helpful. We felt safe walking around the nieghborhood during the day into the late evening. Staying in the apartment offered us a neighborhood experience we wouldn't have had if we'd stayed in a hotel.

  • Perfect apartment, perfect location. We had a great stay and the code door system is very convenient.

  • Lynn was a gracious host who helped to make our trip to Chicago a great experience. The apartment is perfect - nicely appointed and modernized while keeping the charm of the original building and era.

    Just a short walk to the train and located a block from Old Town. The location is only a few minutes walk from the Lincoln Park zoo and walk along the lake. All the amenities you need just minutes away! We recommend Lynn's apartment!

  • Great location, close to dowtown and public transit. Clean, quiet apartment. Comfortable bed and beautiful bathroom. Price is awesome for the location. Would stay here again. Lynn and I did not cross paths but her emails kept me up to date with any questions I had.

  • I highly recommend this apartment. It's in a great location in Old Town, with easy access to downtown via the "L", short walk to the lake and Lincoln Park and the zoo, and what's more, there is a fantastic pub just across the street, which you should definitely go to (the Twin Anchors). Lynn was prompt and cordial with all communications. The apartment was just what we were after, and the gas fire made it very cosy in the cold Chicago weather. The kitchen is quite small but well-quipped, and the bathroom seems very new.

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Lynn's apartment. We used it as a base to explore the city (with the intention of relocating). It is in a very conveniently location and Old Town is a lovely neighborhood.

    Communication with Lynn was good and she was a lovely host.

    It was snowy weather when we visited but the apartment was warm and cozy.

    The kitchen is well-equipped for anyone wanting to cook meals and overall we had a very comfortable stay.

    We would highly recommend it.

  • Lovely, clean, super well-located--about 10 minutes to the Loop on the Brown Line, plus easy walking to the retail corridor in Old Town as well as Lincoln Park. Lynn helped us to light the gas fireplace for a marvelously cozy winter stay in her elegant unit. Everything was spot-on. Definitely recommended for Chicago visitors!

  • A lovely, well appointed, quiet and clean apartment in an excellent location. It works just fine for two people (as advertised). Despite being in an older building, it was comfortably warm in the typical cold Chicago weather. Lynn clearly takes very good care of this place, and is a proactive and engaged (but not intrusive) host. She offered late check-out when no guests were coming on our departure date.

  • This apartment is wonderful - I really enjoyed my stay! Everything was so nice and clean and cozy. Also, the location is perfect! I would definitely recommend it. Thanks again Lynn for a lovely stay!

  • Nice apartment, good location. Toasty warm in a cold week. Good martinis and ribs across the street at the Twin Anchors, lots of restaurants and such close by. Parking generally easy to find, usually in front of the apartment. No steps up or down! Keurig coffee in the kitchen. Good experience overall!

I had been working in the visual arts for many years as a designer and art director for a natural history museum where I was constantly learning about how the natural world has evolved. I decided that I also wanted to know more about how the physical world worked and returned to school to become a civil engineer where my designer's tools now include gravity, energy and other forces of nature.
