Thanks for a lovely stay! Heather, the lady looking after the apartment, made us feel really welcome, was easily contactable and sorted out a custom check-in time. The loft was in a great location, seconds from the morgan-lake L station and plenty of cafes and restaurants. It's about a 20min walk from the Willis tower, a 30min walk from the centre of Chicago and a $10 taxi ride late at night. The views of the Chicago skyline from the window and from the rooftop deck were fantastic. We also managed to park directly outside for free.
The apartment itself was exactly as described here - a large airy loft apartment that was filled with contemporary art. The beds were comfy and the apartment was spotlessly clean. The bedrooms aren't soundproof (one bedroom has walls, but the roof opens into the living space) and you can hear the L when it's running. It also does feel very modern, so it won't be right for some people who are looking for a more traditional space to stay. However, we had fantastic time and highly recommend it!
We were welcomed by the house sitter Heather. She was very nice and explained things about the loft. Shannon left a letter with very good suggestions for things to see in Chicago. She also had pamphlets of things to see in Chicago. We walked to downtown from Shannon's loft - you have to be up for a good walk. The loft was clean and spacious. We enjoyed our time at the loft.
I was lucky to find this listing three days prior to my scheduled visit to Chicago. Everything about it was great. The person who met me with the keys was very nice, inviting and informative about the housing. The neighborhood was a huge plus. I am from Chicago and used to live in that area so to me it was very homey! The loft was great with a spectacular view of the Willis Tower to the right and the John Hancock building to the left. At one point I told the other person staying with me, "I wish this was my house!" I would highly recommend this site/loft to others.
Amazing and unique loft, couldn't have been more perfect for our trip. Very quirky looking with lots of art all over, big windows with a nice view of the city. Close to the Green/Pink lines, great bars and food nearby. Easy to get to from the airport and walking distance to Union park where Pitchfork festival was held.
Turns out the Aviary (recently voted best cocktails in the world) is just around the corner too, expensive but well worth a visit.
Only downside was the noise from the trains, but it's not the end of the world.
Thanks Johan! Glad you had a great stay. Sounds like our place was perfect for you. My review for you got cut off, will try to fix with Air BnB ASAP.
I was in Chicago, at Shannon apartment, for a week in July with my parents. The apartment was perfect, exactly what you can see in photos and in a really nice neighborhood. At 2 minutes you have a Subway, ten minutes walking to the Loop, with some cool restaurants around.. a really nice and safe place!
We didn't meet Shannon, but the communication by email for preparing the stay was really fluent and easy going. A Shannon's friend waited for us our arrival day and she was really nice and cool.
We absolutely loved our stay and we strongly recommended Shannon's place! and yes, we really liked the artistic decoration in the place!
The flat is as artistic as it is presented in the photos. The cat and dog are extremely cute, except the cat would meow at night. The cat sounded like a baby, so it was a little creepy hearing that sound in the middle of night. The flat is right next to the morgan-like station, which makes going to the Loop extremely convenient. On the other hand, you can hear the noise of train arriving the station. Also a great location for Italian food.
Shannon was away but Joe was a welcoming and helpful host.
Moreover, the loft is close to the subway. It was perfect to discover Chicago.
I would recommend to stay at Shannon's home to anyone!!
Great loft, near the subway to go to the loop!
The loft is in a great location right next to public transit! So easy to get everywhere.
Shannon's place was very beautiful and she and her boyfriend are great hosts. They gave us some very good recommendations for what to do/see in Chicago and were very helpful in general!
Shannon was in town for a conference. Her flight was delayed getting in and she let me know immediately - great at staying in touch and communicating. She was a clean and respectful guest, and really friendly. Would happily host again/recommend her as a guest :)
Shannon guest was great

Perfect guest. Very clean and nice. I would definitely rent to her again.
It was pleasure to meet and host Shannon and her friends. They are welcome back anytime!
