Lakeview/Southport Corridor/Wrigleyville is one of the safest and most exciting places in the city. Our 2 unit building is on a quiet tree-lined street, away from the rowdiness and noise of the party streets but still affords you walking access to a huge variety of exceptional restaurants, bars, outdoor activities, entertainment, and an 11 minute walk to Wrigley Field. Our apartment is a great home base to get around the whole city and also relax away from the crowds.

The space

We have been part of the Lakeview fabric for over 30 years. We bought our 1890's house over 20 years ago and rehabbed it then. The apartment has 10 foot ceilings and is duplexed down (2 floors) into the garden level where the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms are located. If you played college basketball, you may have to duck your head a bit downstairs.

Our street is very quiet and neighborly, (many on the street raised their kids here - including us), but close enough to walk to the areas that makes our neighborhood so vibrant.

Access to the Southport stop on the Brown line "L" is 3 minutes by foot, which will get you to the apartment or all over the city; but why go anywhere else, Lakeview/Southport Corridor has it all. :)

Guest access

Outside the back door, you will have access to a large deck with a table and chairs where you can enjoy a glass of wine in our quaint backyard. In winter, have a wine and a snowball fight!

If it is warm out, check our garden in the backyard. Anything we are growing is yours also (usually basil (ahh Pesto), mint, rosemary, jalapeños etc.).

If you are taking a break from restaurant hopping, our kitchen is well stocked for cooking along with a stove/oven, microwave, refrigerator and other small appliances (coffee maker, tea kettle, blender etc.).

Interaction with guests

Our in home “Welcome Book” will give you many recommendations for the neighborhood (restaurants, bars, activities, shopping, theater etc). We are Airbnb'ers too, so we have met many different hosts. Our style is fluid; if you need anything or recommendations, we can help. If you are here to chill, that is alright with us too. We are here to give you the support you prefer!

Other things to note

Lakeview is activity oriented and kid-friendly. Run or bike the lakeshore, play beach volleyball, kayak the river, grab a city shared-bike and explore the 606 trail and different neighborhoods. Take the "L" down to our world class museums or an architectural tour on the Chicago River.

We have many kid friendly parks with the newest located 1 block away, which was paid for by the neighborhood families and the Cubs - it is awesome!

Parking is available on the streets, but is restricted to permits from 6p-6a and Cub games. We can help you with this.

Additionally, parking garages are nearby and parking services apps such as Spothero and ParkWhiz are very helpful and reasonable.

Bruce was a terrific host! Over a three-night stay our group of seven occasionally had questions or needs, and he was extremely attentive and quick in his response. The place is in a wonderful location, and the house itself is beautiful. We especially enjoyed the huge back deck! Highly recommended, and a great value.

My friends and family came into town to shop for wedding dresses. We loved this Airbnb for a thousand reasons! Firstly, Bruce was very responsive, personable, and accommodating. He made sure our stay was everything we hoped it would be and went out of his way to make us feel welcomed! And don't get me started on the house itself... gorgeous, clean, stylish! Perfect location! Very quiet without a lot of pedestrian or automobile noise. Even cooler, if you're there on the right night, you can hear the cheering fans at Wrigley during a baseball game! So special! Thanks, Bruce!!!

Hi Kaci. You and the girls were excellent guests an we enjoyed having you. I hope you were able to wind down a little from all the dress shopping you did. If you or any of your girlfriends are back in Chicago, you are more than welcome to stay with us. Good luck with the wedding plans and congrats.

We really enjoyed our stay. The hosts were very friendly, helpful, and flexible. This is a great location, close to restaurants and stuff to do, yet on a nice quiet street. It was nice to have a big open living space and outdoor space to socialize.

We really enjoyed staying in Bruce's home! We walked to the baseball game, a park, restaurants, and grocery store, while being close enough to hop into the city and play tourist. It is in a wonderful location, and we enjoyed the city life for a brief time. Plenty of room for our family to spread out, and for everyone have their own space. Bruce is extremely helpful, and so easy to communicate with. We greatly enjoyed all the extras he provided, and would definitely visit again should the opportunity ever arise.

Bruce's place is by far the best airbnb experience I've had. The neighborhood is safe and very family friendly with restaurants and parks in walking distance. The place is spacious, clean and accommodating for a big family. Bruce was an excellent host. He was clear with his instructions and always responded quickly when we had questions. I highly recommend Bruce's place.

Trish and I met in Chicago and have been living here for a long time. We raised our daughter here and love our quaint and quiet neighborhood. Some of our passions are travel when we can, music (plenty of options here) sports (especially the Cubs and Blackhawks), and the food scene.
We really enjoy using Airbnb when we travel since you truly get the flavor of the neighborhood/city you are staying in.
We believe staying in our apartment will serve as a great home base not only in Lakeview but all over Chicago.
