Downstairs is a fully functional kitchen and dining room as well as an enclosed sun room that looks out on fenced-in backyard. The basement has a washer and dryer. There is also a small two-car garage.
The home is located in a beautiful historic neighborhood of bungalows and Gunderson homes next to the musical Ascension church. Walk to coffee shops, parks, conservatory, library, swimming pool, grocery store, and restaurants. A one block walk brings you to the Oak Park CTA stop and a 20 minute ride into Chicago loop with museums and shopping and parks and theater.
Or, simply stay in Oak Park and visit the world-famous Frank Lloyd Wright home and studio. Walk to the historic Frank Lloyd Wright district and see the greatest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright homes. Walk the other direction to the Harrison Street Art District and shop for paintings, glass work, beading, and more. Walk west to theatre and have dinner at the many lovely restaurants nearby. Or, walk to Autre Monde, a very well-reviewed restaurant in nearby Berwyn, or to the Marion Street Wine and Cheese Market and enjoy a local and sustainable dinner.

Car: Not Necessary
Oak Park is home to the Frank Lloyd Wright home and studio. The Village also contains many of the homes that he designed. Because of this and other styles of architecture, the Village may be considered a living architectural museum. Visitors travel from all over the world to see the architecture in the Village. Oak Park is also the birth place and childhood home of Ernest Hemingway. The Village has a museum dedicated to his life and work. Hemingway's home is also in Oak Park and is open for tours. The Harrison Street Art District is located about 15 minutes by foot from the Yellow Cottage. The art district has street fairs and studios. It also has many activities for children: everything from drop-in fun to two week all-day camps. There is a lovely yoga studio (Yoga Trek) that is walking distance (15 minutes) from the Yellow Cottage. The studio has classes and it is also possible to book private sessions at the studio. Other local attractions include: coffee shops, beer gardens, many parks, conservatory, public pool, theater, shopping, library, ice skating rink, and a sledding hill.
Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: I am a work-at-home mom with three children. We love to travel and frequently rent from vrbo. We love moving into a comfortable home in the heart of a community and exploring local life. We hope to offer the same joy to you by renting out the Yellow Cottage for your vacation. We live next door to the Yellow Cottage and I hope to be able to make your visit to Oak Park an enjoyable one.
Why the Owner Chose Oak Park:
We love Oak Park. We moved here for its diversity and its vibrant, child-friendly culture. We live next door to the lovely Yellow Cottage. I was raised in the Midwest in a simple yellow home that looks much like this Yellow Cottage.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This home will allow you to explore Chicago and Oak Park while living comfortably in a home away from home. As a mom, I understand that a good vacation is a comfortable bed and the ability to put good food in front of my children. If you stay at our cottage you will not be eating typical restaurant fare. We have a grocery store that is just walking distance away and a Whole Foods that is a 5 minute drive away. You can serve healthy food to your family or take them, like I do to the Buzz Cafe (as seen in New York Times) for a good cup of coffee and simple, wholesome cafe food.
