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!
We love this place. It is not only a great location, but also is very comfortable and quiet. Lynn has created a super environment!
I have used Airbnb several times for both work travel and personal travel lodging and I must say this was my absolute FAVORITE place so far! I was in Chicago for a week and I felt so at home. So clean, so cozy, so convenient and Lynn was an absolutely delightful host. This place is not only located in beautiful Old Town, a neighborhood only blocks from Lincoln Park, but it is also very conveniently located 1.5 blocks from the Sedgwick train stop that can take you anywhere in the city. I used the train to go to Millennium Park, Museums, and S Michigan Ave. A lot of places available for rent on Airbnb give the impression, upon arrival, that you are definitely staying in someone's home, which can be a weird feeling. This place does not have that air about it, which I really like. It has all the neccesities though. It is totally furnished with very nice furniture pieces, super soft sheets, comfortable bed, soaps, towels that don't just rub the water around, a toaster, coffee maker, etc, and it feels more like you are staying in a really nice hotel suite. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this place to anyone! Thanks again Lynn for a fabulous stay.
Lynn and the apartment in middle of oldtown were more than perfect for our holidays in Chicago!
The apartment in the old town was great for our visit to Chicago - fantastic location, nice bathroom and kitchen. Highly recommend it.
I stayed here for a weekend getaway to Chicago. As someone who has visited a few times, this was a fantastic place to stay. Not only are you near several great restaurants, theatres (the rental has a book of recommendations), but you are also very close to the "L". From door to door, it took us under 20 minutes to get to the Sears (now Willis) tower.
The rental itself was very well equipped and clean. The kitchen had a gas stove, dishwasher, and full size fridge. There was also a keurig machine and french press with coffee provided.
The bed was very comfortable, especially after long days of sightseeing. That being said, I couldn't recommend sleeping more than two people here-- the couch in the rental is comfortable for sitting, but would be too small to sleep on.
Lynn was a great host and responded back to any of our needs promptly. I would highly recommend staying at this rental!
