About Doug M.
I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and have lived in the city for the last 25 years, the last twelve in Bucktown & Logan Square. We've always enjoyed the neighborhood and enjoy being an active part of the neighborhood. I work 10 minutes from the house so I'm always close by. I'm a trained carpenter and now General Contractor. You'll probably find me working on the house and property. I love to spend time with my family and enjoy the neighborhood and Chicago in general. I'm an avid home cook and look forward to preparing and eating with friends and family. We have a dog in the house, so you may hear him running around every now and then. Will try to keep any noise to a minimum. We live above the garden apartment in the main house. I have a lot of information and recommendations on local places to go/see/do. I'll be more than happy to share this info with you to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
Doug M. purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Doug M. chose West Bucktown
We've always enjoyed the Bucktown and Logan Square neighborhoods and were ready to move on a single family home from a condominium. We had the opportunity to buy this house and have had a great time. We're happy to share a part of it with you!
What makes this Apartment unique
High walk-able, easy access to other neighborhoods via car, bike or public transportation. Expressway is nearby as well. Anything in the city itself is accessible with public transportation (CTA buses or trains), taxi cabs, and car services like Uber/Lyft/Sidecar. If you need to go out to the suburbs, a rental car would definitely make getting out there easier. There are nearby car rental locations for Enterprise and Zipcar for short term car rental if you need it. The apartment is about a 12 minute walk (1/2 mile) to the CTA Blue Line Elevated/Subway train. That train runs from O'Hare Airport to downtown (our stop is about half way in between). There are 2 major bus routes by the house that can take you east/west and north/south. Ordering a taxi or car service is easy from our location too.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date.
We took the train from the airport and into the loop each day. The apartment is spacious and comfortable. The owner recommended area restaurants, and we really enjoyed Wasabi Ramen for dinner and Cozy Corner for breakfast. My daughter also enjoyed running on the nearby 606 trail (safe during the day - especially if you head east from Western Ave.)
Great stay in a great neighborhood!!
The apartment was perfect for 4 adults. The neighborhood has a ton of great restaurants, pubs, & shops. Also, Doug was very accommodating! Would absolutely recommend to a friend and we will be stay here again! Thanks Doug!!
Great stay in Bucktown
Property was clean and met all our needs. We did not have a car and found public transportation to be convenient with our Ventra card. There are several apps to help with tracking city buses. Doug provided a notebook of recommended eateries which was helpful. Would stay here again.
Great stay in snowy Chicago
We really enjoyed our 3 night stay in Doug's apartment. The apartment is comfortable and well equipped and is also very well located for the airport and the subway. The large screen TV was also a bonus for watching the US Masters. The area has many good restaurants and bars and we had a great meal in Lula Café.
Great Neighborhood Outside the City
We enjoyed our stay here! Doug was more than a gracious host, and very accommodating for the way our travel arrangements panned out. The walk to the Blue Line was about a half-mile, but very doable, and there are restaurants and other amenities nearby.
Great spot! As advertised. Very clean cozy spot with a fenced in yard.
I had a great experience! I loved the big leather couch. I got great use out of the kitchen. Appliances were solid. The king bed was extremely comfortable. Was able to use the yard quite a bit with my dog. Doug was an very gracious host. He does a great job of making sure you’re comfortable while also giving you plenty of space. I definitely intend to be back!
