  • Fantastic rental, fantastic location, fantastic everything!

    "We have recently arrived home after a wonderful 5 week stay at the Yellow Cottage, and I can honestly say that it was everything we needed and more! We were in Oak Park for our daughter to receive some medical treatment at Caring Medical on Lake Street. As we needed to be close by, we selected the Yellow Cottage after reading previous reviews, as we did not know the area at all. It was certainly the right choice! A perfect home from home, as it was in a good residential area, so we felt safe, but also had access to local shops and downtown Oak Park was only a short car ride away. Importantly, it was just a mile away from the clinic, and this helped with the logistics of our stay too. The cottage was well equipped and was perfect for us. The garage for the car was a great asset, as cars need to cleared off the street overnight. When we did manage to venture into Chicago itself, this was simply a case of walking to the Blue Line train station, about 8 mins away. From here you can buy a $10 24 hours unlimited use train ticket, and it's then an easy 20 min ride into Chicago. I would not hesitate to recommend the Yellow Cottage, as it's a perfect base. From the beginning of the whole process, from booking, to access to the house on arrival, right through to departure, it was so easy. We were very fortunate to have the owners next door, and as we were there for a considerable time, we were able to meet them..and what a charming family! Thank you Lara and your fantastic family for making us feel so welcome so far from home! We are already planning our next trip to Chicago and will definately stay at the Yellow Cottage, and our fear is the same as other reviewers...better book early, as it will be unavailable!"

  • Great place for family gathering

    "We recently rented the Birdsnest for a family gathering to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. It worked out beautifully. First of all the bedrooms are on three different levels so there's plenty of separation for all. In addition the home is very well equipped and nicely decorated. If you're headed to Galena for a visit, you won't find nicer accommodations. And the owner, Steve, is great to work with."

  • Great Stay!

    "Great stay at this 2 flat! This really worked well for our party of 5--there are 2 queen beds and 1 double. Andersonville has a lot of options for dining, and the Hopleaf is only 2 blocks away. The unit is well furnished and the kitchen is well equipped. Parking wasn't too much of an issue on the street, there always seemed to be a spot near by."
