“I would happily stay there again.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2010

I chose Longwell Hall on a recommendation from a local resident. The owner was kindly and well informed, but not over-bearing. The house was well set up and decorated without being fussy and pretentious. The room I stayed in was nicer than it looked on the website and the bed was very comfortable. My room had access to an upper story porch which was a wonderful place to catch a summer breeze and relax.
The location was great; easy to catch trains to downtown or just to wander the Oak Park/River Forest area. The breakfast was really tasty with fresh fruit and home baked quick bread. I would definitely stay there again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2008

We've stayed at Longwell Hall 3 or 4 times over the last few years and have always enjoyed our stay. We stayed in March so we could go see Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me! in Chicago. We stayed in July so we could go to Ravinia to see Prairie Home Companion. Each stay was very nice. The place is clean and attractive, a lovely old home. There is a great porch that looks out over the front yard with access from two of the bedrooms. In July it was great. We got to see Oak Park's fireworks and just had a great time.

The breakfasts are perhaps the weakest link but they're acceptable. We've met a variety of people there from several different countries.

Neil is friendly and helpful but not hovering. He makes you feel that the whole house is yours to enjoy. Oak Park has a lot of great places to eat and shop and it's easy to get to Chicago from there via the L.

  • Liked — Warmth and comfort, friendly atmosphere, plenty of room.
  • Disliked — Not my favorite breakfasts but still okay.

Me and my wife thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Longwell Hall during our weekend trip to Chicago. Rates are great, and it is only 20 minutes away from downtown Chicago by L-train (plus about 10 minutes' walk through very nice neighborhood with interesting houses, which we found invigorating). Host was nice and made us very decent breakfast, rooms were clean; ours had access to a very enjoyable veranda terrace on the 2nd floor. All in all, enjoyable and relaxing.
