My wife and I have been together for more than a decade. We met online, so meeting guests online is just par for the course! Lori grew up in Chicago. Yes, there are kids who are raised in this wonderful city! I grew up in the far northern suburb of Vernon Hills.
We are foodies who have gone to some of the best restaurants in Chicago. We love theater and have season tickets to Steppenwolf Theater Company here in Chicago (a short bus ride or about a mile walk from our home). Lori has travelled the world: England, Greece, Egypt, and Guatemala, to name a few places. She lived in London for a semester of college. I haven't travelled as much, but we plan to do more in the future.
As hosts, we will answer any questions you have, but want to be unobtrusive during your stay. We live in the building (in a separate apartment), but will not bother you at all. We've been traditional landlords since 2005 and have 2 traditional units for rent still. We hope you enjoy your stay and love Chicago as much as we do!
