Our cozy single family home is located in the quiet & safe Chicago suburbs of Buffalo Grove. Your garden level room includes a fridge, Keurig, microwave, snacks and a private bathroom. There is a living room with TV and fireplace, dining room table, and all the board games you could play. There are many local places to eat, shop, and entertain. We are 35 minutes from Six Flags Great America and Chicago downtown.
NOTE: We have 3 small children.

The space

We do have 3 small children (2 of which go to school every day) which pitter patter about the upper level of the house. They shouldn't make much noise and usually aren't seen. Please act in a manner that is kid-friendly.
We have central heating and cooling but tend to open up the house when the weather is nice for fresh air.
We have an extra large backyard which is fenced, a grill, and a raised patio for you to enjoy.

Guest access

**THANKSGIVING SPECIAL** After lots of inquiries, our family leaves most of the day (and following day) for Thanksgiving to visit our family locally. You will be able to cook Thanksgiving dinner for your family using our double ovens, and other kitchen supplies (please bring your own turkey!) and have privacy all day. Our upstairs dining room seats 6, and the guest dining room seats 8. We are a 20 minute drive from the Great Lakes Naval Station and other service bases that are graduating and/or on leave. Let me know how many we can expect to host!
You may use our WiFi, kitchen, and we can accommodate your needs.
We have DirecTV satellite television with many channels, DVD player, Amazon, and Netflix.
Laundry service is available upon request. There is a fee and must be paid in cash at the time of service. Your host will wash, dry and fold your laundry for $4 per load. Only your travel laundry, please. Maximum of two loads weekly per guest(s).

Interaction with guests

Please feel free to let us know if we can do anything to make your stay enjoyable. Be part of our family and we are more than happy to share dinner with you or you can do your own thing. We enjoy playing board games with guests if you are available or just sharing a conversation.

Other things to note

We do have children so total quiet is unrealistic for this home. We do try to keep them quiet as much as humanly possible.

We had a wonderful stay at Lauren's place and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a clean, comfortable place to stay! Lauren certainly has the gift of hospitality and went out of her way to accommodate us. She offered to set up a Pack & Play for our infant daughter and let us borrow an adorable infant play seat while we were there. The private bedroom and bath were not huge (if you have a large family or prefer a king-size bed), but were very nice and just perfect for the 2 of us and our baby! The bed was really comfortable (we slept great!), and all the sheets and towels were extra soft! Even the shower head was super nice with two heads and great water pressure. We loved having a Keurig, mini refrigerator, bottled water, microwave, and snacks right there in our room. One of the evenings we were there, after a long day at a conference, we came back and were able to rest on the couch in the downstairs living space and watch a DVD. Lauren and her family have a large DVD selection and comfy couches too! Overall, we can't say enough good things about our stay! If you are looking for a quiet, comfortable place to stay for a very reasonable price, you will not be disappointed!

Hope you guys had a lovely and private stay over the weekend! We would love to spend a few hours with you guys in the future, and can definitely accommodate 3 of you later (if you know what I mean). We have lots of equipment for tiny humans so don't feel anxious if you need to come back. Anyways, have a great fall!

We had a great time at Lauren's home! At the last minute we needed to find home that accomodated our 2 year old frenchie. Lauren was very excited to host us and even went out of her way to get treats for our pup when we had arrived. We appreciate her attention to detail, clear communication, and sweet hospitality during our stay.

Response from Lauren:
I am apologize you feel your stay was less than a 5 star stay for it's location. We live in a safe, and very quiet neighborhood close to 3 major highways and a Metra train station that can get you any where you want to go. Our family chose to live in Lake County because it's the best school district in the state of Illinois as well as the friendliest city I have been in thus far. We are less than a 5 minute drive to any store (Sam's Club, Walmart, Target, Jewel Osco, Kohl's, etc), a 30 minute drive to Six Flags Great America and Hurricane Harbor, as well as Key Lime Cove and the Gurnee outlet mall. We are 4 minutes away from the local movie theatre and 15 minutes away from the conventions center in Schaumburg. I really couldn't ask for a more centralized location but I apologize any way for any inconvenience this distance may have caused you in it's location. We take hosting very seriously and are upset you were anything less than blown away! Best to you in finding a new house.

Lauren and Matt were amazing and the room was great. We were actually road-tripping to Chicago and Lauren communicated with us every step of the way. The room was extremely comfortable and the coffee selection was one of the best I've ever seen. The private bath was also such an amazing convenience as we got into town at a late hour. I will stay here again and I would recommend it to anyone. Don't forget to play games with the family!
