My three boys and I spent a fantastic spring break in Chicago. The boys ranged in age from almost 7 to 14. All of us enjoyed the neighborhood restaurants and sites. Staying so close to Wrigley was awesome - even for non-Cub fans. Each night after the boys had decided where each was sleeping (she has the most comfortable beds and linens) we were able to rejuvenate to explore the city again the next day. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone visiting Chicago. Teri provided us with a binder of helpful tips and restaurant ideas. we will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Bring comfortable walking shoes

We are a family that is scattered all over the world and tend visit big cities often together. We hosted a wonderful baby shower in the guesthouse and it was PERFECT for our event. It housed most of our out-of-towners. There was space for the party and then some. It was in excellent condition. AND it was stocked with all the amenities we needed ... real dishes, cooking utensils, plenty of linens. This is not your empty run-of-the-mill place with the leftover furniture no one wants to use. The parking places were a premium and it is located within walking distance of the ballpark and a great boutique-y shopping area.

Teri is all business and was very responsive, another plus to the experience.

Thanks Teri! We hope to rent with you every time we're in Chicago!

My husband and I have always stayed in downtown Chicago to be near tourist attractions but we really wanted to get to know the "real" Chicago, where locals live and play. We spent a long weekend at Shoreline Suite with my parents and it was perfect: very easy to get to the Art Institute, close to great theaters (we saw Million Dollar Quartet at the Apollo) and fabulous restaurants (went to The Peasantry afterwards), and completely clean and comfortable. Teri has taken care of all the details so you feel right at home. We have stayed in many apartments in cities around the world and this was the most like "home" in terms of the amenities and quality of furniture and decorations. Highly recommend!

We stayed at the smallest apartment on Henderson - two bedrooms and a bathroom. It was plenty roomy for us - three adults and a small child. I have stayed at a few residence hotel type places in Chicago and this was by far the best! To start - free parking on or off the street will save you a bundle.

The reviews are spot on. The apartment was so comfortable for family meals and relaxing after a busy day of sightseeing in the city. And the place was spotless - see my other reviews, I am picky! We never met the host, but felt her thoughtful touches everywhere - huge binder/guide to the neighborhood, more extra towels and paper goods than you could ever need, fully stocked kitchen (including martini glasses and shaker!). This will definitely be our first choice for future trips to Chicago!

Teri, I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at your vacation rental home. I've stayed in a lot of vacation rental homes, but this was by far the nicest one I've ever stayed in. Everything about its location was perfect -- proximity to el stops and groceries, nice walk to the lake shore, great little family neighborhood. In fact, because it was the weekend before Halloween, we got a chance to see the businesses around the corner on Southport in action during their trick or treat afternoon on Sunday. There were a number of stores that we went to during our visit that were within a convenient short walk: Jewel-Osco (grocery store), friendly liquor store, delicious sushi joint, Southport Grocery and Cafe (yummy, unique lunch/brunch choice). Your home was so clean and the beds were so comfortable, the kitchen was a great hang-out spot...unfortunately, it was a little cold to spend any time out on the patio, despite how well we lucked out with the weather. Your art all over the walls manages to be tasteful, sophisticated and homey all at the same time--we felt like we were living in the home of a famous artist! The 4 bedroom, 5 bed, 2 bath setup created the perfect "hotel" situation for the five of us 40-something women who all lived in Chicago together 20+ years ago. We all decided we'll definitely stay there next time we come into town with our respective families, and might even have to make this an annual affair for ourselves. :-)

Thanks again for helping to make our girls' weekend so special.

Besides being SO much cheaper than a hotel in Chicago, I feel like I have now LIVED here! The house is fully stocked (all you need to buy are perishables), the neighborhood is nice, the El is only 1 1/2 blocks away!!! This place has a living room, dining room, den, nice kitchen, breakfast area, 2 balconies, 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths!!! It is really lovely!!! I am so glad we opted for this instead of a hotel!

We loved our stay at Chicago Guest House, the Lakeview Suite. It was a great location(3 blocks west of Wrigley, great restaurants, bars all within a short walk through a beautiful neighborhood), and fabulous apartment. Every detail was thought of by you- the guide book you’ve put together is amazing, the kitchen fully equipped and baths perfect, lots of guest towels, shampoo, body wash etc. You’ve thought of everything. We loved it and will certainly return. Thank you so much!
