Great stay near downtown Evanston, close to train to Chicago and walkable to northwestern. The space was cozy and clean. Bed was super comfy! I didn't have a chance to meet Scott or Stacy but they were very responsive and have made check-in/checkout easy. Definitely recommend.

I couldn't have asked for a cleaner, nicer, easier spot to rest for a night in Evanston during a yoga workshop. This converted basement flat is easily accessible and very comfortable. Stacy and Scott are very hospitable and leave no box unticked in terms of clearly communicating and providing everything you need for a successful stay.

Really accurate description of the space on the listing. Great if you’re going to be using it just as a homebase. Instructions were easy to follow and bed was really comfortable! Would stay here again if visiting Northwestern again.

Stacy and Scott are wonderful people. Their home is very nice and conveniently located to all the places in Evanston, especially North Western University. When weather permitted, I was able to walk around everywhere. The room is very comfortable and private. Check in and check out instructions were very clearly spelled out. I loved my stay.

Stacy and Scott were wonderful hosts, their place was very clean, private and extremely convenient for my visit to Northwestern. Walking distance from several shops and places to eat. The bathroom was spotless and the bed was very comfortable. Their communication was outstanding and they were very lenient with my check in and check out times. I felt very welcomed and at home during my visit. I would absolutely love to stay with Stacy and Scott again.

Scott and I are empty nesters with daughters living on both coasts. I work at Northwestern University with a 7 minute commute and Scott is a custom home builder on Chicago's North Shore. We downsized to Evanston a few years ago to enjoy all the restaurants, theaters, cafes that this town has as well as the beautiful lakefront only a few blocks from our house. We like to think the energy of living amongst the college students helps to keep us young I love to bake, so if time allows when you're staying with us you may find treats awaiting you.
