Located in historic Oak Park, just a short Green Line ride from Chicago, this basement studio is perfect for the tourist, family visitor or business traveler. Enjoy the privacy of a remodeled, beautiful studio while appreciating historic architecture nearby. With multiple Historic Landmark homes nearby (including one right next door), plus Frank Lloyd Wright and Hemingway homes just 10 minutes away, our 1923 Tudor is the perfect home base when Chicagoland is your destination.
We hope you will enjoy our remodeled, newly furnished basement apartment. We have worked hard to ensure that our studio is comfortable, clean and supplied with all the basic necessities. We are happy to be able to offer you a brand new, plush mattress, plentiful blankets and pillows, and cozy cotton sheets.
The studio has a shared entrance, accessible through a gate at the side of the house. There is also plenty of street parking. The studio has a comfortable bed, a private bathroom with a shower, a dining area with a refrigerator and microwave, and a beverage bar. We provide you all the comforts of home including: iron, ironing board, TV, hair blower, fan, coffee maker, and coffee, tea pot and tea, high chair, bathrobes, closet with hangers, house slippers, towels, wash cloths, shampoo, conditioner, and body wash.

Other things to note
Full disclosure about all the charming quirks of a historic home...
Your hosts live in the 1923 house above the studio. As is the case with charming old houses, there are some creaks and squeaks that come along with the charm. You might hear some foot steps above as the basement apartment is part of the house and not built as a separate condo. The ceilings are sufficiently tall but if you are on the taller side it might feel a little cramped. We also have two well trained and very loving dogs that live upstairs. We usually let them out the front, but be aware that it is possible you might meet your furry hosts on occasion.
- The Space: Quiet hours are from 10:00-7:00. Guests can enjoy the patio and yard. Your host lives in the house above the apartment.
- Parking: There is street parking just next to the house.
- Please enter through the side gate between the house and the garage.
