“Family Vacation -- from Manhattan, Baltimore, Boston, Champaign, Nanjing...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

My parents, siblings, their spouses, and my one niece and I came from five difference cities to spend a week together in Chicago before a family wedding...and we couldn't have found a better location!

* Description accurate - and the parking garage and BBQ grill in the back were super convenient
* Property clean and well maintained
* Owner provided good customer service and was accessible
* Would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative
* Loved the fact that there were so many restaurants, bars, shops, and even the Chicago Cubs stadium just blocks away
* Also loved the fact that it only took 1 hour via public transportation to get to the house from ORD

Minimal hassle + maximum convenience + great facilities and location = a win for sure!

My family and I stayed 3 nights in the Shoreline Suite in May 2012. Everything was as pictured and advertised: there were no surprises. The rooms were clean, nicely decorated; kitchen and bathrooms supplied with the basics.

The best thing about Shoreline Suite was the location. We loved the area. Southport Avenue was a favorite destination for a bite to eat (Tango Sur was great!). And the proximity to the Red/Brown trains was excellent... We were fortunate that the first two nights we had the run of the house -- there were no guests above or below.

Teri Smith was wonderful to work with: very responsive and answered all our questions.

The one disappointment was that the Cubs were not playing while we stayed there. Next time, we will plan our trip a little bit better.

We are looking forward to our next stay.

Room Tip: I would think that the top floor would be the quietest -- no one above you

We traveled to Chicago with our adult daughter to visit our son, who lives in Lakeview. The Belmont Suite on Henderson was very convenient to his apartment. Everything we needed was furnished, the apartment was very clean, and we were very comfortable. The location is great for Wrigley Field, the El, Whole Foods, and several restaurants.

Seven guys descended on Chicago over Cinco de Mayo weekend 2012 for some fun in Chicago. We searched all over the city looking for a convenient and fun alternative to a hotel to serve as a base of operations while we were in town. Chicago Guest House did not disappoint. Every aspect of our experience -- from booking to arrival and wrap up was great. And the house was beautiful. Tastefully decorated, well stocked (with linens, towels, and kitchenware -- even a blender!), and very clean, the House was also perfectly located between two L-lines and about a 10 minute walk to Wrigley Field (and the fun located around it). If I had one compliant, it's that we didn't have an extra day to take advantage of the grill and patio area out back. The house was great for seven guys, but would also be perfect for couples or a family with kids. I highly recommend Chicago Guest House.

We had a great time at the Addison Suites, the location was very convenient to Wrigley Field and easy to take the train to the City. The apartment had everything you needed, very clean and comfortable, and loved the decor !! We had a graduation party with family and friends and it worked out perfect, a great place inside and outside for entertaining. My daughter who lives in Chicago didn't want to leave ! We will definitely will make a return visit, Thank you Teri

This was an amazing find, so glad we choose to stay here. Chicago Guest House on Lakewood exceeded all of our expectations. The owner, Teri, made our stay effortless. The house was very clean, comfortable and stylishly furnished. We immediately felt like we were at our home away from home. The off street parking is very important in this neighborhood, as it is a very popular locale. We were able to walk to the grocery store, restaurants, bars, shops, Wrigley Field, you name it. Our group included 3 generations and we valued the time we spent together even more in this lovely accomodation. Thanks Teri!

We decided on a trip to Chicago very last minute and were so lucky to have found the Chicago Guest House on-line. Teri was quick to respond and the booking process was super easy. We loved the quiet neighborhood and it's proximity to shopping, restaurants, and the train. The guest house was beautifuly furnished and immaculately clean (quite a compliment from this admitted germ-a-phobe). The beds and linens were comfy, and the bath linens plentiful. The kitchen was well-stocked with nice quality dishes and glassware...not your average vacation rental kitchen ware. From the Brita water filter in the fridge, to the nice wine glasses to the great coffee Teri provides, everything was beyond expectation. We didn't know what to expect not staying downtown, but we all agreed that this is the way we love to visit Chicago! Staying here, we had the best of both worlds.....we rode the train to downtown plus experienced the quaint, walkable neighborhood. We'll definitely be back! Oh, by the way, we left a load of laundry in the dryer. I received a UPS confirmation of shipment from Teri first thing Monday morning!
