The space

A bright cheerful, spacious private suite plus a sitting room and bathroom that can accomodate up to as many as 6 people and makes a wonderful retreat in the city one night of several weeks. This is a place you will always remember and want to come back to.

We have a guest room with a queen sized bed and a private bathroom on the third floor of our house. We are non-smokers who live in Chicago close to Oak Park. We are green line and 20 minutes from the Loop (Downtown Chicago) via the green line train.

We are also walking distance from grocery stores to the famous Oak Park Farmers Market.

We have a flock of chickens and backyard farm based on permaculture principles. Longer term room rental includes a plot in a local community garden and use of bicycles.

All common areas

One of us is home most of the time. We allow people their privacy, but love to share our knowledge of Chicago and what it offers.

We are two blocks from the Green line, 5 minutes from the expressway and convenient to the entire Chicagoland Region

The room was, um, roomy- easy to spread out, and the mini fridge in the room was perfect for leftovers. It's also a quiet neighborhood. We didn't have a car, but the easy walking access to the "L" made our Frank Lloyd Wright tour easy to get to.
