Gold Coast house description

Welcome to Ritchie Manor, the opulent former estate of the Maxwell House coffee magnate family... Built in 1888, you can choose, 1, 2 or 3BR apartments in this mansion with sweeping views of Lake Michigan and the beautiful Gaudy Park across the street. Your home is large, warm, and sunny with those always-preferred south (city views) and east (unobstructed lake views) exposures.

The Garden Suite is especially popular featuring a large bedroom with beds for up to 4 and a bright comfortable living room with a pull-out couch for 2 more. An extra bedroom and bathroom can further be added on the lower level if desired.

The 1BR Penthouse Suite is also popular with incredible lake and city view, a large bedroom with 2 beds (for up to 4) and a living room with queen size pull-out couch for up to 6 couples total.

Laundry is in all the units.

If you seek an alternative to a hotel in Chicago, you have found your place. Our location is unmatched: you are literally steps away from the Lake Michigan beaches, the Magnificent Mile/Michigan Avenue, all the best shopping, dining, and nightlife of the Rush/Division area.

Pets are always welcome at Ritchie Manor. Please bring your dog or cat, any size is fine if they are well behaved. There are plenty of parks, grass, and Lake Michigan shores for your pet to enjoy within 1 block.

While we only provide 31 day leases to be fully compliant with all city regulations, many guests find that our monthly leases are comparable to the price that a nice hotel room charges even for a few days. Please note that all guests will be requested to review and sign the Chicago Landlord Tenant Ordinance, to to be advised that we are not operating a vacation rental or B&B, and do not have a vacation rental license. However we also manage several licensed B&Bs in the area for short term rentals so please inquire and we'll see if we can help!

Keywords: Home, flat, mansion, townhouse at 1300 N. Ritchie Court, 1 block from the famous 'Pump
Room'/Public Hotel, steps to Oak Street Beach and Magnificent Mile/Hancock Building, next door to the famous Rush Street night life and restaurant scene. Pet friendly.
