On a lark, I decided to venture to Chicago in the winter to visit some friends and catch a show. One of my friends said there was a B&B near his house in Edgewater. I checked it out and decided that it would be great to stay in Chicago neighborhood rather than a large downtown hotel. I was quite happy with my choice. House 5863 is a bit different: its contemporary, clean and quiet. Breakfast is not communal. Rather, the proprietor set out a variety of self serve items, from croisants, pastries, bagels, cereal assortment, etc. The kitchen coolers are stocked with water, juices, sodas, and snacks... all available anytime. Our room was quite comfortable: outfitted with a King bed that was probably one of the top three beds I have ever slept in. Room was spacious and above all, quiet. Nice plasma television. There is also a great common sitting area, a deck and a garden, which I didn't have much use for in the winter, although I am sure it is an attraction in the warmer months. Important to me was the fact that the B&B was located in a great Chicago neighborhood close to friends and a block or two from the Red Line "El" to downtown Chicago. I was able to walk to restaurants and to some great Chicago pubs, or could jump on the train and be downtown in minutes. In sum, I would gladly stay again and do recommend it to others.
