This listing is responded by Jackie, one of two sisters who assist with accommodations. Quiet room with new full bed, shared bath, shared kitchen, great WIFI, living room, dining room. Near shops, restaurants, bus, and trains. 2 cats and 1 dog. Borders the towns of Skokie and Evanston.

The space

There is a shared bathroom just down the hall with fluffy towels. And while staying with us you are welcome to use the well-equipped kitchen and hang out in the living areas. We have one friendly dog, but he is not allowed in the guest room. There is free wi-fi throughout the house and free parking just outside the front door.

We're always reachable by cell phone in case you need anything - including sightseeing and restaurant tips.

You'll love Evanston! Our street is 100% residential. Just few blocks away there are cafes, gourmet food stores, bakeries, and other specialty shops. If you take a stroll down Central Street, past Northwestern's stadium, you'll find a lovely public golf course and Lake Michigan's Lighthouse Beach.

Evanston is easy to navigate if you're driving, with plenty of street parking nearly everywhere, but there's also good public transportation. The Metra commuter train to downtown Chicago (28 minutes) or downtown Evanston (4 minutes) is only three blocks away. And a little over a mile away is the Purple Line, part of the Chicago Transit Authority's system of elevated and subway trains. You can get to O'Hare by public transportation in 90 minutes, and a flat-rate suburban taxi will get you there in half an hour. (Add at least 20 minutes to get to Midway.)

Northwestern University (Evanston Campus) is just under 3 miles away. Driving time is approximately 10 minutes; bike riding time under 20 minutes. The 205 Pace bus stop is at the corner from the house and the bus ride is about 20 minutes.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the kitchen, free wifi, and Netflix, Roku in the shared TV room .

Interaction with guests

Jackie (owner of the property and listing manager) maintains the property and lives on property with another room renter who happens to be male.
