Welcoming and cozy spot!
What a wonderful experience staying here! The apartment was clean, comfortable, and in an adorable neighborhood! The owner attended to every detail to make our stay enjoyable. Great find!
You will not be disappointed
What an ideal homebase for a Chicagoland trip! It's an easy trip in and out of downtown/the Loop, and plenty to explore even closer! The home itself is delightful in every way - very comfortable and perfect for 3-4...even 5. Great beds and kitchen accommodations. The owner is very communicative. A grocery store is literally 2 minutes away. Multiple train and bus lines from a block to 4 blocks away will take you anywhere and everywhere you want to go. You will not be disappointed at all with choosing this property.
Great neighborhood location!
Classic Chicago 2 flat, in a great neighborhood.
Great place to Stay with a wonderful host
Virgil’s place is nice and clean and Virgil is a wonderful host. The neighborhood is nice for beautiful walks and good places to eat. The only drawback is you are a ways from downtown and a several block walk to the El. The place is older so you will hear creaking floors but it is well kept. I do not hesitate in recommending it and would gladly stay again. I have lodged with Virgil three times now with not a single problem.
This was a great place to stay. Virgil is always helpful with quick responses to any questions. Close walk to the subway system and walking distance to the nice Lincoln Square town center. Loved the whole experience. Thank you Virgil.
This Property Is Located In The Lincoln Square Neighborhood Of Chicago, A Quaint Section Of The City's North Side That Was Mostly Settled By German Immigrants At The Turn Of The Century, But Has Since Evolved Into A True Melting Pot Of Cultures While Managing To Keep Its Old World Charm And Unique Character. Unlike Many Parts Of The City's North Side That Are Mostly Populated By Young And Single Residents, Lincoln Square Has Managed To Keep A Balanced Demographic That Makes The Neighborhood An Attractive Destination For Singles And Families Alike, And Anyone Else Looking For An Old Neighborhood Feel While Also Enjoying A Taste Of The City Life. The Property Itself Is Close To Public Transportation To Get To Downtown And Other Points Of Interests In The City. Street And Private Parking Being Somewhat Prohibitive, Taking The 20-Minute Train Ride To The Downtown Area Would Be Good Alternative To Driving.
Lincoln Square Has Everything To Offer For All Ages And Preferences - Playground For Kids, Art Fairs And Festivals For The Entire Family, Wine-tasting For Oenophiles, Fitness Training, Spa, Cooking Classes, Music Venues, Among Other Interests. Next Door To The Property Is The Newly Opened Grand Tour Restaurant That Features Cuisines From Different Countries Every Month. Steps Away Is Lutz Bakery, A Chicago Pastry Favorite That Draws Visitors From All Over The City.
