First off, a B&B should probably have a comfortable bed and a decent breakfast, right? Our bed, in the "Room With a View", was REALLY comfortable including six pillows. And the breakfast? Much has been written about the wonderful fresh and tasty breakfasts, and they do not lie! Wow - the menu is awesome and the specials are excellent! We... More

Can't beat breakfast at this B&B (talkin' menu with wide am time.) Every nook and cranny displays items from Grannie's. In the quiet of the bowels of the building is a steam and sauna. Staff sweet and gracious. Ray's royally rock.

My daughter, mother in law, and I spent three nights in the skyview room. We were thrilled with the accommodations, comfort, hospitality, and value. The home was spacious and comfortable with lots of personality. It far exceeded our expectations. We look forward to returning.

My youngest daughter and I met my oldest daughter and her husband in Chicago for a weekend. While searching for a place to stay, Ray's Bucktown B&B was on the trip advisor list of B&B. It looked like a fun place to stay and in an area with lots of history. My daughter and I shared the DaVinci room and... More

We just returned from a visit at Ray's. This is a wonderful place to stay if you enjoy city living. The pleasures of Bucktown are within easy walking distance. As many reviewers have mentioned, the breakfast was superb. We were in town to visit the Randolph Street Market. Ray was very helpful with directions on driving routes, parking, etc. Overall,...

We had planned to stay in downtown Chicago but because of EXORBITANT prices (and almost zero availability) , we looked elsewhere and YAY found Ray's. He wasn't there for our visit, but the staff was wonderful...soooo hardworking, cheerful and helpful. Just can't say enough positive things about the staff!! We stayed for 4 nights, joined for 1 night by our... More

My wife and I had three splendid days and nights here. Ray has given considerable thought to arranging and operating this place. Being at Ray’s is like living in a small museum – admist a variety of interesting artifacts. The location is also great. Within walking distance of a very interesting, evolving neighborhood, as well as public transit to get... More

I went there with my girlfriend for 5 nights. Ray, Sarah and everybody else working there are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacious and even with many people (11 bedrooms) very quiet. Breakfast is absolutely amazing and well prepared by the kitchen angels. The neighborhood is nice, some good restaurants and shopping. Only point we did not like: the... More

Our daughter lives in Chicago and we always stay at Ray's when we visit her. He and the staff are so accommodating and pleasant. I was running the Soldier field 10 miler on Saturday so I asked them to pack us a healthy bagged breakfast for us. It was awesome and was just what we both needed! The rooms are... More
