John was great! Very responsive and attentive. We used the place for a marketing team offsite/hotel for 6 team members and it was perfect. The internet was fast, the space was large, etc. No complaints!

where to even begin? I was planning a retreat for my team of coworkers and understandably nervous about finding the "just right" place. from day 1 John was open and communicative and helpful (even BEFORE we booked our week at his loft). John regularly assured me that the space would work for our large group (16 folks) and he was absolutely right. they even created an additional bedroom to accommodate our people - so thoughtful! His assistant Anna checked on us daily to see if we needed anything, but the space is nothing short of amazing. really, the photos hardly do it justice. John has taken many pains to create a magical space. the kitchen! fantastic. we needed grill supplies and Anna got on it immediately. the spiral staircase through the smoke stack to the rooftop deck? totally unreal. each of the bedrooms were well decorated and quite comfortable. the master bathroom has perhaps the nicest shower I've ever experienced. what a marvelous and special space. we created some really wonderful memories :)

Unique space in a fun neighborhood. It was great for hosting an off-site work trip. The hosts are very responsive. The only thing to be aware of is that the bedrooms are not very private.

Thank you for the feedback. We are working with an architect to create several more unique private spaces within the home. Just ordered the barn doors yesterday :)

Excellent experience--a fun and unique place to stay! Located near enough to downtown to handle our business in town but just far enough away from the busy feel of the city. Very attentive hosts and ever available handyman. Our group of 5 was perfectly suited by the sleeping arrangements, the space was large enough that no one felt crowded. All in all, a wonderful stay.

This home is pretty spectacular and on the whole John was very responsive. I think this space would work really well for a family get together or friends weekend. We were there for a work meeting, and most of the bedrooms don't have doors, so that was a little odd for coworkers. There were a couple of other little things, like the furniture in the "living room" could use a little refresh, and you have no control over the HVAC, so must text John when you want to change the temperature. The open space, lovely kitchen, and roof deck all help to make up for these quirks. With a few adjustments this place would be totally amazing.

Response from John:
Hi Heather, Many thanks for your feedback. Your feedback has motivated me to replace the living room furniture. We had to file a claim with airbnb due to a guest and his friends really destroying the couch, rug and chandelier. We are also bidding out creating more smaller private spaces in the home. Thank you for sharing. Best, John

We rented John's loft for our stay in Chicago during the National Restaurant show. John met me on the first day of our stay to give me a tour and share some of the cool amenities of the home, of which there are many. The common area is very, very spacious, which provided more than enough space for morning meetings over breakfast. There are multiple bedrooms hidden throughout. The master suite and attached bedroom are unbelievable. Very elegant. We were able to accommodate eight people very comfortably. During our stay, we hosted a private event for approximately 120 people. The layout of the loft was perfect to allow a buffer area for greeting and security before walking into the open space. Our event producer lit the beams and brick walls (URL HIDDEN) was beautiful. The bar and kitchen were both very functional for our party needs. Besides the space, John was an unbelievably accommodating host. He checked in every morning to make sure we were comfortable and ask whether we needed anything. When we did need something (baking pans), he was super quick to accommodate. His knowledge of Logan Square and surrounding areas was helpful. He sent me a text of a dozen or so restaurants and bars to check out in the area. The area has a lot of great gems. One last note...despite being in the middle of the city, the loft has two fantastic outdoor areas. A courtyard just off the main living area and a massive rooftop deck that was a favorite of our crew. Can't say enough about our stay for both lodging and event hosting perspective. We will absolutely be back.

John and Anna were very gracious hosts and were responsive to all our requests and needs. It was a pleasure! We hosted a week-long meeting in the space, and the openness and unique loft architecture of the space contributed to the overall success of the meetings. The only challenge we had was having proper lighting in the space for our evening meetings - it was a bit dark. However, John addressed the lighting immediately and he will bringing in additional lighting to accommodate for future meetings. Thanks to John and his team for making us feel welcome and comfortable the entire week!
