House 5863 is not your typical B&B. We are different. Here you will find no Victorian decor or rockers on a scenic porch. Rather, we are an urban, hip place to stay in the heart of Chicago's north side. Our style is contemporary comfort. Our rooms are clean, cool and most of all restive Our approach is more hands off than hands on. We focus on providing for all of your needs behind the scenes without disrupting your stay. Common areas are designed for casual living. The fully-equipped kitchen offers continental style breakfast with all the basics to allow you to serve yourself on your own schedule and at your own pace. Our garden and deck areas offer a quiet respite for relaxed joy. We offer five private guest rooms, each with its own private bath. Each room features a king-sized bed. All rooms are equipped with a flat panel television and free cable television and high-speed wireless internet access.All rooms sleep two guests. Room number 4 can accommodate an additional guest on a pull-out sofa for an additional guest charge. If you are traveling with children under the age of 7, please contact us before booking your reservation. All rooms and all private areas are non-smoking.

It's unfortunately that you had a bad experience. It's impossible to have very little communication when we constantly respond to emails or phone calls everyday. If you have booked with a 3rd party website we ask that you contact them directly for any issues arising...More
Like other reviewers I found the owner difficult to deal with, and the check in procedures (All automated as if he didn't want any contact with his customers) difficult. (its hard to see to key in the numbers on the outside door after dark).

It's unfortunate that you felt you had a bad experience. Being the owner, I do live on the property and sometimes I hear guest speak to other guest and you were quite rude to the cleaning lady and not friendly to a guest when they...More
We decided to try this different type of B & B after decades of the more traditional ones. The decor is modern and quite nice, the neighborhood is beautiful and quiet and the do-it-yourself breakfast was plentiful, though not cooked.
Thank Susan A
