Grace and Tom's Antique Filled Home is exactly as described and reviewed. What a great location just a few minutes walk from the train to downtown Chicago, the shops & restaurants along Lake Street and Oak Park Avenue, Hemmingway's home, and the Frank Lloyd Wright sites. Grace and Tom are kind and considerate hosts.
Tom and Grace are wonderful hosts with a lovely home. They were easy to communicate with in advance. When we arrived, they offered us drinks and we had a great time talking with them. The room and bed are very comfortable (it's a queen bed, in case you're wondering). They'd left out bottled water for us and there were extra hotel-size toiletries in the bathroom in case we had forgotten something. They have a sweet cat and a gentle giant of an elderly German shepherd. They also had excellent advice about things to do and places to eat in Oak Park. (The Frank Lloyd Wright tours are worth every penny if you're into that, by the way.) We would recommend Tom and Grace to anyone!

Desde nuestra llegada a la casa nos hicieron sentir como si fuera nuestra ,pudimos preparar nuestras comidas y compartir hermosas conversaciones como si nos conociéramos de toda la vida , una de las cosas más valiosas que tiene un viaje es la parte humana y haber conocido a Grace y a Tom ha sido una de las cosas que , con más afecto vamos a recordar , gracias Grace, gracias Tom no tenemos palabras para expresar nuestro agradecimiento. Por mencionar algunas cosas importantes de nuestra estadía en vuestra casa debo decir que encontramos un cuarto perfecto un baño en las mismas condiciones La casa es muy cálida , tiene hermosos muebles y a cada paso que uno da por los distintos ambientes se encuentra con la historia de una hermosa familia , estamos muy contentos de haber participado de ese clima familiar en nuestra estadía de dos noches , el próximo viaje a Oak Park, será sin duda con alojamiento en la casa de Grace y Tom
Grace and Tom are a delightful couple, great hosts, and good folks
for interesting conversations. Their home is very comfortable and is
a museum itself with antiques and many conversation pieces. The house is an easy walk to the Frank Lloyd Wright Studio and Museum
( I highly recommend the 3 hour walking Wright tour of Oak Park )
and the Hemingway Museum. Also convenient to the train downtown.
I had a great time, even the dog and cat are good hosts.
WOW! It's our new home away from home.
Welcomed with tea, banana bread and lovely conversation.
The home was warm, friendly and easy to get to.
We hope to be back soon in the New Year.
Happy Holidays! to Grace and Tom.
Please send pictures when you have all your lights up.
Tom greeted us and was friendly, welcoming and offered generously to us to make ourselves at home -- sitting rooms, kitchen, even contents of the refrigerator (we did not, however). The home is beautifully constructed and decorated, with antique furniture everywhere. The house itself is on a pretty, tree-lined street, in an old neighborhood in lovely Oak Park, with no hint of any safety concerns anywhere (photo is completely accurate). Our visit was only overnight, a whirlwind visit, with late arrival and early departure -- not enough time to get well acquainted with Tom and Grace. I would have enjoyed having more time to talk, but Tom expressed that whatever worked for us would be fine. We sensed great openness and trust, and it felt more like staying at a relative's house than at a perfect stranger's. I need to mention that the bed was most comfortable -- cozy yet firm mattress with no sags (I don't think the picture on line does it justice, and it is an important part of an overnight, in my view!) The guest bathroom is on the next floor up from the bedroom (which is on the second floor), so mobility/immediacy issues may be a factor for some, but not for us. The bathroom is immaculate, well-equipped if you forget your own toiletries, and provides a good shower as well as all the other necessities. We were very satisfied with our stay and would not hesitate to stay again, but would prefer to do so on a less whirlwind basis so we could enjoy the surroundings a bit more.
Our most recent trip to Chicago was everything we expected. Our host Tom met us with a smile, told us about their beautiful home & showed us to our lovely room. We enjoyed our brief stay for the running of the Chicago Marathon. Up early & out for the train ride into the city. The comfort of our room was very good, loved all the antiques & Stained & Beveled glass. Would highly recommend staying with Tom & Grace
Grace and Tom were so friendly and welcoming! They invited me to breakfast on both of the days that I was there. When I was there I felt like I was staying with my aunt and uncle rather than with two strangers.
The house is beautiful, comfortable, and quiet. The antiques were lovely. I loved the neighborhood.
We do have wireless internet.
Anyway, hope to see you again. We really enjoyed hosting you.

Our stay in Oak Park was everything we had hoped for and more. Cozy and clean accommodations in a lovely home that made us feel a part of the community we were exploring; with easy access to dining and transportation, and with the most helpful and generous of hosts. Our stay was brief but our pleasant memories will linger.
A wonderful stay in a peaceful, clean, and quiet home with great hosts. Grace and Tom were so kind in helping me out in countless little ways. I only regret that my whirlwind schedule did not allow me to spend more time with them. Highly recommend.
