Great stay at a traditional, Williamsburg-eqsue furnished room at the back of Laura's home. She is incredibly responsive and welcoming. The room is affordable and well-located.

Remarkable spot. Laura's place is in a really nice and safe neighborhood. The people I met while on my 15 minute walks to the Metra line were all warm and engaging. Just across from the Metra station are shops galore should you need anything close by. The room is clean and very …

A nice place in summer. At our arrival the appartment was unfortunately not heated (in winter, even not at the first night) enough to be confortable and no wlan-key avaiable for that first evening. And no key to close the door of the room of the outside was avaiable. We hope Laur…

Response from Laura:
I invited Jeanette in for coffee the first morning that she was with us. We spoke for about an hour, I asked if she was comfortable and what else she might need and explained that there was an individual heating unit for the room that she could control just in front of the bathroom. It seems odd that she would not have turned the heater to the temperature that she desired. The unit has a non-locking door to the enclosed porch. Inside the enclosed (heated) porch there is a wooden chest that had the key to the room on top of it. There has never been any indication that there would be a "lock-box" on the exterior door. Since Jeanette and I spoke (having coffee in my living room) and realized that we had mutual friends in Lake Forest, I wish that she had been more forthcoming during her stay. The directions on how to locate the room are very specific, before anyone arrives, I make sure to tell them" please park in front of or behind the tree with the addresses on it. The room is at the far south side of the house, there is an enclosed porch with seasonal wreaths on the windows. The porch light is directly next to the entry door. Once inside the enclosed porch, the key to the private room is on the small wooden table to the right of the locked door." When Jeanette visited for coffee in the morning, I showed her how to access the "Wi-Fi" on her cell phone, she had a letter capitalized that should not have been. I have had a "booster" installed when I first began hosting so that guests will not have a internet problem problem. There is a laminated page of all the pertinent "Wi-Fi" connection information in the room. The room has a small wrought iron table and two chairs. I believe that the photo's of the room are accurate and the description reflects that there is only 220 square feet.

Clean, comfortable and convenient, if a little dated.

I believe that the pictures on the web site indicate that the house is over 100 years old. I live in the front of this property, however, work full time. As a result, I do not have a great deal of time to visit. The instructions for check in are extremely clear as a result. I will always respond to a text or phone call as soon as possible. I have been lucky to have many very nice and interesting visitors!

The room was charming. There was a refrigerator and microwave in the room along with maps, train schedule, and information on attractions. It is located in a quiet, attractive neighborhood. It was perfect for our needs and we look forward to staying there again when in the Chicag…
