Your bedroom will be a spacious, fully private room with a key lock door. The room is 16x14 ft in size, with a full sized bed, chair, desk, and dresser.
My place is close to University of Chicago, University of Chicago Medical Center, Comers Children's Hospital, the Museum of Science & Industry, Currency Exchange Cafe, and Washington Park. You’ll love my place because of the ambiance and the outdoors space. The house is good for couples and solo adventurers.
The house was built in the 1890's and has an amazing stairwell that still gives me that wow factor! As you open the front gate you'll be led through a brick entryway with garden space on both sides. The yard is filled with sunflowers, birdbath, and veggies during the warm months. Sometimes the chickens even make an appearance in the front yard. The interior is very spacious and welcoming. There are two living rooms on the first level. You will probably be greeted by one or both of my dogs with kisses. The kitchen is also very spacious. Feel free to make yourself at home and use any of the space to your liking. All we ask is that you clean up after yourself. We love our home and are happy to share it.
You are welcome in any parts of the house with the exceptions of other bedrooms. Of course, wifi access is included.
You will have access to use the kitchen and the living spaces. We like to keep the house vibe pretty chill, so please no loud music, and do clean up after yourself if you use the kitchen.
Interaction with guests
We are happy to help give you some guidance on where and what to do once you arrive. Ben my partner, is very knowledgeable on the city and loves offering advice. He is such an extrovert, he could chat with guests for hours and sometimes does! I can be a bit introverted, but, do love hanging out and getting to know the guests. Most of our guests are plant and earth loving people and we get along splendidly. We are fairly well traveled people and enjoy talking politics and what life is like around the world.
Other things to note
Although check in time is listed as 5, we are typically quite flexible in this regard, since Ben usually works from home. All we need is a heads up prior to arrival.
Also, this listing is not recommended for those who have severe allergies or aversion to dogs or cats, since we have both! Our welcoming brigade is made up of Teddy, a German Shepherd, Kiwi, a Yorkie terrier mix, and Sassy, our sassypants cat. Expect high amounts of love and affection. We try our very best to keep dust to minimum but we do have a German Shepherd so please don't be surprised or appalled to see dog hair.
Sometimes guests check in when we are not home and use the key from the lock box in front of our house (see details in check in). The dogs free roam the house when we are away and have treats at the front door that you can give to them upon your arrival. They have a mighty loud barks but they sure love company and kisses!
We have 17 chickens and one of them being a rooster! Feel free to go out back and meet them. :) Ten of them which were hatched at home this summer!
We love coffee and have some brewing usually every morning, so feel free to have some! Along with our farm fresh eggs if you are planning on making breakfast!
Please note that the adjacent room is also listed on Airbnb, so you may be sharing the bathroom with 1-2 other guests.
And finally, safety first! I wouldn't advise strolling around the neighborhood too late at night. Please be street smart!
