Stayed here during my first trip to Chicago. First experience at a B&B! Absolutely wonderful! Great location (close to L-train), beautiful neighborhood, beautiful house. Gloria is a wonderful host! Would definitely stay here again!

What a delight to discover the perfect BnB in our favourite Chicago neighbourhood. The house is perfectly restored and in keeping with the neighbourhood. Lots of beautiful restored oak in a peaceful setting full of tall trees and beautiful houses. Our accommodations were spacious and clean. Chatting with Gloria and the other guests at breakfast was relaxing and insightful. What... More

Stayed here for two nights in early June of 2014. We had 3 rooms. All the rooms were on the second floor and shared a bath down the hall. For the price, this is place a good deal. The house is lovely with a large porch with plenty of shade and seating. You can sit out there and eat breakfast... More

What an amazing place!! Gloria is a fantastic lady, a kindred spirit. She was absolutely wonderful, cannot wait to stay there again. Her place is beautiful and historic, in a beautiful part of Oak Park. Close to everything you need, and breakfast was fantastic. 12 out of 10 :)

I have family in Oak Park and visit regularly. I have stayed at a series of places, hotels, motels, and bed and breakfasts, including three times at Under the Gingko Tree. I am returning this summer and have decided to stay there again. It is a lovely old mansion in a wonderful neighborhood, surrounded by beautiful gardens and lovely Victorian... More

If you're traveling to Oak Park, it's likely you're going there to see the many examples of Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture. If so, you won't find a better location than Under the Ginkgo Tree. It's about two blocks from his former studio and residence and within an easy walk of a whole slew of Wright houses as well as the... More

Stayed for a very hot week but air-con in the house worked very well. Loved the place and the people. Did not have en-suite but could always find a bathroom when we needed one. The porch is a great place to sit and people-watch. Oak Park is a good base from which to reach downtown Chicago as the E train... More

Beautiful home, fabulous hospitality. My boyfriend and I truly enjoyed our stay and were sad to return home after our two-day stay. From the continental breakfast taken on the front porch to the restful sleep in a comfy bed, I've found my new home away from home while visiting Oak Park. The B&B is in the heart of the Frank...

Great house, very comfortable. Gloria was great and very, very helpful. Breakfast was perfect and we enjoyed eating on the large, cute front poarch. We never had a problem when we needed a bathroom and were in and out on our time. We very much enjoyed the other folks that stayed in the Inn when we were there, not too... More
