About this listing

Private room in a fully furnished home located 20 min from O'Hare Airport and 40 min from downtown Chicago. Situated in a quiet and fairly green neighborhood. We have everything you need to relax: full kitchen, wood fireplace, open backyard/patio, and many cozy nooks to sit and work in.

There are nearby nature trails, a movie theater, grocery stores, cafes, restaurants, and a large shopping mall.

Interaction with guests

Interaction depends on the needs and wants of the guests!

My amazing and hospitable mother lives in the house, while I travel between Chicago and Washington, D.C. for work. We have two other listings on Airbnb in addition to this one, so we often have other guests.

The house has a wonderful community feel. Yet, all of us have quite busy schedules, so it never feels crowded. We are always happy to show you around if you are new to the city.

Please ask us if you need a ride to/from the airport, and we can try to accommodate you.

Our Host was very warm and welcoming! Loved her! Small private room. Shared bathroom with two other females. No fan Im the room, so it gets a bit warm. But it's cozy! I would definitely recommend it considering the other prices of AirBnB in the area.

I stayed here for over a year and I was so heartbroken to leave! I want to stay forever! I absolutely love everything about this home. Lucy, the cat, meeting new housemates... I have always felt like I was part of the family and I can't thank Lucy and Marzena enough for their hospitality. Will absolutely be back to stay in one of the rooms, and visit on my own time. :)

Marzena and her mom are wonderful! They made sure everything was taken care of for me before I got there and throughout my month-long stay. I don't have a single complaint. I would gladly stay with them again.

This is the second time I stay here and needless to say, I'd stay again if I had the opportunity ... I was here for a few months and all this time I felt like family, I have nothing but good things to say about Marzena and Lucy The room is nice, on the second floor across the hall from the bathroom, there is a dishwasher in the kitchen so that's really good :) ... it's not even a mile to get to stores and movies (Golf Mill shopping center and Wal Mart), Amazon Prime Now delivers here (another bonus) ...

This is a nice room in a nice neighborhood, near shops and restaurants. The experience is more like staying at a relative's house than staying at a hotel. Marzena and her parents are really nice people and definitely would enjoy staying here again.

My stay was very pleasant! Marzena's mom and dad were incredibly kind and went above and beyond to make sure that I had everything I needed. Marzena's mom even went as far as to let me borrow some of her sweaters and jackets on the colder nights. Overall, I am very satisfied with the stay I had. Should I come back to the area I will most definitely be staying here.
