We stayed in this beautiful home while I attended a conference in downtown Chicago. Like many of the other reviews, the place was simply awesome. Every room we walked into we kept saying "wow". The size of the house, the number of areas to sit and relax, the great room, huge kitchen, wrap around porch...all spectacular. The local train service runs early 3 times each day (6:00, 6:40 and 7:30 I believe) and is a fast and inexpensive way to get downtown and the train station is walking distance to the house. The only challenge we faced was the commute into downtown by car, which was 50 to 60 minutes during rush hour. However, it was still an easy route to get there and would recommend this property for anyone wanting to experience the hustle and bustle of Chicago, and then the tranquil setting of an old mansion in the suburbs. We definitely plan to go back to this wonderful property. It would be great for a couples weekend (easily sleep 4 to 5 couples), or a larger group. We have 4 children (12 to 22) and all were very comfortable in this large place. The only complaint they had was that there wasn't a large flat screen TV for movies, but, frankly, that was it!

My sister and a couple of friends stayed from a Thursday to Sunday. We had a great time. The bedrooms were extremely comfortable, and the kitchen had space for multiple people to help make a meal at a time. We found the brochures and menus in the front very helpful for the nights we didn't feel like cooking. The house has space for many more people than our number, so as you can imagine, our stay had an airy and spacious feel. The atrium on the first floor was amazing and perfect for a quiet hour of reading or a game of solitaire. I would recommend this property for anyone who just needs a weekend away, whether it is meant for shopping, sightseeing, or just relaxing.

If your travel plans include Winter in the Chicago area, I would recommend this location to anyone who can enjoy a good snow storm in the comfort of a warm and relaxing home. Whether "staying in' or venturing out to the many surrounding attractions, The Singer Mansion provides the perfect accommodations to begin and end your day. Thank you Cyndi for delivering everything as anticipated.

what a wonderful memory
what a wonderful memory
The anticipation of staying at the Singer Mansion was not a disappointment. Charming, a home you wish you could live in every day. All updated but still with the feeling of historic reverence. I would so much reccomend staying at the Singer Mansion. I have 5 lifelong friends who have started getting together again each year. We go to a different town each year but we all would love to go back and just stay at the home. Not leave. Love Love Love the kitchen where we baked cookies and talked for hours. Plenty of room. Sitting in the sun room, hanging out in the TV room, looking all through the house, taking pictures, and making wonderful memories. Very clean, very modern in a way that does not takes away from the history. Every day we would find something else in the home to be amazed at. Really was happy when I found the picture of the home with the original owners in the yard as we saw that the sunroom was original also. Don't stay in Chicago, stay in Lemont and drive to Chicago, Went to Napierville and probably would have missed it if we had stayed in Chicago. Great places to eat right in Lemont and having a grocery store just down the road was nice. I know this is lengthy but as i write i'm walking down the hall of the Singer Mansion. I would go back in a heart beat and I guarantee those will be the most comfortable beds you will ever sleep soundly in. Did I mention Giant showers? The home is so big there are 2 hall ways upstairs. Yes, stay at the Singer Mansion., The price is right and you will have a really hard time topping this location for your next vacation., Cynthia is very helpful and kind. The pictures are a real. It's that nice. I would definately recommend this home for your next trip to Chicago. But you'll want to stay in Lemont,. Thank you.

My husband and I have rented many vacation homes, but this was by far the most relaxing and enjoyable place we have ever stayed. This home was more than we ever expected! We were surprised by it's size and beautiful details everywhere you look. The beds were so comfortable, and the bedrooms were so spacious and quiet! Even though we had 8 people staying in the home, we never felt cramped. If we make it back to Chicago, we will definitely stay here again. Thank you for making us feel "at home".

I loved the house and the area. We had a large family get together on Saturday afternoon and all went well. This is an ideal place for large family or entertaining. The area has many nearby attractions and good restaurants. It was everything advertised and more.

Absolutely fantastic home!
Absolutely fantastic home!
This historic home was perfect for our family get together this April to celebrate my father's 82nd birthday! Cyndi and Paul were so accommodating and helpful! Both my husband and I felt it was a privilege to stay for a week in such a lovely, historic home. Our daughter, and my sister, brother, and two nephews joined us and we were all so comfortable. The gourmet kitchen was a dream for preparing delicious meals -- we all love to cook so it was great fun! Wonderful memories were made for all of us. Thank you Cyndi and Paul for sharing this magical place with us! PS. Lemont is an interesting village -- check out the historical society if you have time when you stay at the Singer Mansion!

What a lovely home for a short escape for the Chicago area couple to recharge their batteries, taking a break from everything to focus on their relationship or families visiting from far and wide to gather together with family for a wedding or graduation. This home is easily accessible to Chicago. Every room offers something special and is very comfortable and welcoming to the guests. I will definitely come again!
