Enjoy your stay in our clean, comfy garden unit on a quiet tree-lined street in Chicago's Edgewater Glen neighborhood. We are an 8 minute walk to the CTA Red Line , and a short walk, bike, drive, or train ride to bars, restaurants, and shops, including the Andersonville neighborhood and Loyola University. The beach and the Lakefront Trail are just a few blocks away!
We have enjoyed hosting people in town for a couple nights only as well as those staying longer for work or school-related travel.

The space

Our studio is large and has ample space for guests (both human and animal).

The kitchen is clean and offers all the essentials for any cooking your choose to do when you're not exploring the city's vibrant restaurant scene. We always have coffee on hand for our guests.

The private bathroom is stocked with clean towels and toiletries.

We're happy to answer any additional questions or send more photos upon request. Longer-term renters also have access to shared, free laundry.

Guest access

In addition to the full studio, guests can access the front and back yards (shared with us and another unit). Feel free to enjoy the yard on those rare days when the weather is nice, or to let your pets get some fresh air.

If you're arriving when we're not home, we will leave keys in a lockbox for you so that you're able to get in as soon as you arrive, and we'll be around at some point to introduce ourselves.

We are available by phone most of the time so feel free to call or text if you need help making plans, getting things booked, or figuring out logistic of your stay in advance.

Interaction with guests

We live upstairs and are both friendly and love meeting new people. We also have a deep love for our neighborhood and city and are happy to share our love of and recommendations for local restaurants, bars, shops, and activities. We know the city and are happy to point you in the right direction.

The listing is set up so that guests can check in and out without us. One of us is usually around, and we're always available by phone. We are happy to interact or to give you space to enjoy a private stay.

Other things to note

If you need anything or have a specific request, let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Alison's apartment is a private basement in a residential neighborhood. It was exactly as advertised. We were very happy with our stay! That said, it is a basement; there is some amount of noise that can be heard between floors.

Perfect studio in a lovely neighborhood. A lot of nice shops and restaurants to walk to and short walk to the lake. Also short walk to the red line for easy transportation around the city. Alison was easy to contact and she always responded quickly if I had any questions.

Perfect spot to discover Chicago. Located near restaurants and the Red Line so very convenient. Checking in and out very easy due to the lockbox with the keys in it. Mind that the room is in the basement with a low ceiling. We didn't meet Allison but she contacted us with instructions a day prior to our arrival. Very quiet and safe neighbourhood.

Alison's place was cozy and convenient - close to public transit and also to the beautiful lakefront trail. It was a great home base during our trip to Chicago.
