We live in a family-friendly residential neighborhood, so we ask that you show respect for our neighbors by keeping noise to a minimum, properly disposing of all trash and recycling and only parking in the home's driveway, rather than on the side streets. When pulling out of the driveway, always be extra cautious of small children on bikes and neighbors walking their dogs. We also ask that you treat our home as you do your own - absolutely no smoking of any kind, clean up after yourself, remove your shoes when inside and if something is damaged, let us know immediately.

We (Myself, my two kids aged 9 and 11 and their nanny) stayed at Laura's place while I was running the Chicago Marathon. We used to live in the North Shore suburbs, so were delighted to find this lovely home in a neighborhood we were familiar with. The home is cute and comfortable, very clean and has lots of space for a family, comfy couch and big dining area. Wifi works great and the TV has lots of options for the kids. The neighborhood is lovely, suburban but easy access on I94 to get into Chicago, and lots of amenities nearby (Taco nano and The Happ Inn in Northfield are super close and great for family eats). We will definitely stay here again when we are visiting our friends in the North Shore area

Laura was a great host. Cecking in was easy. The house was clean and spacious. Beds were comfortable. Driving to downtown was straight forward. Check out was quick. All in all I recommend this place. In the summer you should definitely try to eat the breakfast in the backyard. We didn't have time but you can try some barbeque there, too.

Laura and Matt couldn't have been nicer! The house was so clean and had everything we needed. So close to anything we needed. Next to amazing trails and so close to Ravinia. Would always want to stay there.

The house is located in a quiet neighborhood close to shopping and dining. Lots of room to relax. Well furnished. Kitchen is nicely equipped and features a gas range. Master bed has one of the most comfortable mattresses I've ever slept on. My favorite thing about the home is the location. Easy access to the highway and is directly across the street from the Skokie Lagoons. There's miles of nature trails and a beautiful lake with lots of wildlife within one minute of the front door. We very much enjoyed our month long stay. Laura and Matt are great hosts!

The house is very comfortable and well stocked. It was perfect for staying with our young boys. Great kids room with toys and books and backyard. Laura was incredibly helpful and responsive.

Laura was wonderful; very prompt with communication, accommodating, and organized. She made sure our four person group had comfortable sleeping situations, offering to set up a queen air mattress. The beds were extremely comfortable. We especially loved the little details: the spa baskets in the rooms, coffee, fresh-baked cookies, and soap/shampoo dispensers in the shower. The house is in a nice, quiet neighborhood, close to green space/biking trails as well as a grocery store. We will definitely stay again the next time we come to Chicago.

I'm a Chicago native, but have lived and traveled all over the US and the world. When I travel, I love to get to know the community I'm visiting, by staying with the locals, eating at little-known places and exploring what it's like to really live there. The Airbnb community has …
