My hubby and I had a great little get away to Chicago to see friends and celebrate his birthday; we really enjoyed our stay at Magnolia Studios! The property is storybook like in its charm, our studio was much more cozy and well appointed than any of the hotels we had considered. Kate, the owner, was a pleasure to work... More

My stay at Magnolia Studios was wonderful. Kate, the owner, was so very pleasant...she responded quickly to any requests or questions and went out of her way to make sure my stay was worry free. Rooms are beautiful and spotlessly clean. I plan on staying at Magnolia Studios any time I'm in Chicago.

Booked this B&B after seeing nice reviews here. We are coming into Chicago from 5 hours away for a 1 night concert. Given the great lack of lodging near the Rogers Park/Edgewood area, I booked here. Was now told 3 weeks after booking by the owner that "we don’t do single Friday or Saturday nights." No where is this listed... More

This is in a great location for north side visits to Chicago. Way better than a hotel as it provides all the amenities of home. Kate is a superb hostess and the studio itself is absolutely gorgeous. It looks like a fairy tale when you enter into the courtyard.

A friend of mine realized that I was planning a trip to Chicago and he had already made arrangements to stay here and offered me the rooms in his place. I have to say this place is amazing. Kate is the nicest person you will ever meet and very easy to work with. The place is well kept and the... More

This was our second stay at Magnolia Studios and surely won't be our last. We are a Chicago couple with 4 kids who live on a budget that doesn't include allowances for many out of town getaways. Therefore, we try to take "staycations" a few times a year. Staying at expensive (and overpriced) downtown hotels or cookie-cutter suburban chain hotels... More

This is my third time staying at Magnolia Studios, and as always, it has been exceptional. Great, safe location on the North Side of Chicago. I wouldn't stay anywhere else if this place is available, highly recommend.

We stayed for two nights in late July. The studio itself was clean, well appointed, and comfortable for two. The room was complete with a small kitchenette (fridge, microwave, oven, hot top, coffee/tea/water), a small table, a reading chair & ottoman, a desk w/ complementary laptop (did not use), a small flatscreen/dvd combo and queen size bed. The bathroom had... More

I came to Chicago with a girlfriend to attend her daughter's commencement and to do a little sightseeing. We stayed 3 nights at Magnolia Studios and couldn't be happier with our choice. We arrived early the first day and needed a place to change clothes to attend commencement. Our room was being cleaned so Kate took us upstairs in her... More

I feel like I made a major find in locating Magnolia Studios. It is located near Lake Michigan in a quiet residential neighborhood with restaurants and shopping nearby. The beach was a 10-15 minute walk. We wanted to keep our nightly bill within reason, near the city, and that is comfortable. The usual fare of 1.5-2 star hotel chains came... More
