Location! Location! Location! 4 blocks from Damen Blue Line which conveniently takes you from either airport, and 20 mins on L downtown with ease. Extremely walkable neighborhood. Tons of restaurants and shops nearby. Extremely gracious host. Ask anyone who lives here... DON'T stay downtown.
The location is by far the room's best quality. The spacious living area is also attractive & well decorated. The linens are always fresh & inviting. This is a vintage home, which means all the charm that comes with that. Air conditioning in the form of a cranking window unit for your room (icy cold), but not for the rest of the home :(. You are also welcome to enjoy the wonderful Chicago front "stoop". Perfect place to hang on warm nights. Cheapest bar on Damen Ave.
I am a pretty hands- off host. You are welcome to all areas of my home aside from my bedroom & a couple of storage closets.
Interaction with guests
First of all, I love to meet new people, & entertain guests! I respond extremely quickly to all guest requests, but have a very busy life. I'm never far from home so I'll be able to assist quickly. I've really enjoyed getting to know the people that stay with me!
Other things to note
ABOUT WICKER PARK
One of Chicago's creative epicenters lies just west of downtown Chicago in Wicker Park. This neighborhood is famous for unparalleled boutique shopping, esoteric book stores and countless art galleries — many housed within the Flat Iron Arts Building. If you have an acute knowledge of craft cocktails and an affinity for independent clothing designers, there's no better area to sip and shop in the country.
The area has recently become a prevailing influence on Chicago's Michelin-rated dining scene, boasting some of city's most sought after restaurants, including Takashi and Big Star. Wicker Park and Bucktown are also known for their palate pleasing nightcaps, like renowned brewery Piece and mixology tour de force Violet Hour.
The neighborhood's most enduring quality is its shopping. Along North, Milwaukee and Damen Avenue, you will find an unbelievable mix of vintage shops amid independently-owned boutiques touting fashions for both men and women. On the same blocks are nationally-recognized designers, fashion industry behemoths and major retailers.

Do unto others... & don't steal my stuff
Hey there! I'm a pretty busy appointment based interior designer and salesperson. I'm in and out of the house a lot during the day. I have a ton of friends in Wicker Park very close by and we socialize a lot. There's always something fun going on from all the wonderful restaurants around to live music and art events. I'm hoping to create a very comfortable place for my guests. Come on over for a visit, I look forward to meeting you!
