  • Post Marathon Recovery Apartment

    "My wife and I had a great stay the week following the Chicago Marathon. Check-in/out was very easy. The apartment was clean, as advertised in photos, with an ideal location. A short walk to many Chicago attractions, including Second City, and Twin Anchors. The neighborhood is great, and quiet at night. For marathoners and marathon spectators, the apartment is about 20meters from the course between miles 8-10. Due note however, if you run the marathon, the apartment has a 10step walk-up. Which can be brutal in the days following."

  • Great location!!

    "Our stay at the Alice Annex of the Aster House was great!! Fran thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. Short walk to the "L" makes getting to downtown Chicago fast and convenient. Great neighborhood with everything you need in walking distance. We had a great time!! Thanks for your hospitality!!!"

  • Location! Location! Location!

    "In addition to the comforts of home, a good vacation residence, like real estate, requires three things: location, location, location! This cottage has it all: A beautiful, quiet and safe neighbourhood; easy access to mass transit; lots of restaurants and shopping nearby. The parking permits that allowed us to park on the street were very much appreciated. With mass transit conveniently located nearby, we each purchased a 7-day Ventra pass, got on and off the “L” and buses at will, not worrying if we missed a stop or over shot our destination. We recommend doing the Hop On/Hop Off bus to get your bearings in the downtown area. The Shedd Aquarium was great, but go early as the line ups are quite long later in the day. At the Lincoln Park Zoo, watching the baby lemur and baby gibbon at the primate exhibit and the young gorillas at the African exhibit provided lots of entertainment. The Field Museum was interesting, but requires a large time committment to see it all. Uncle Julio’s provided a very good Mexican meal for our first night here (a 5-10 minute walk west on W. North Ave.). Marcello's Father and Son Bakery had great Chocolate Chip Macadamia nut cookies and very good coffee. If you have not tried Potbelly for sandwiches, the location on North Clybourn was excellent and the staff very friendly. Other great places to dine at are: Osteria Via Stato, Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria and Chicago Pizza & Oven Grinder Co. In addition to full bellies, we take home with us, wonderful memories of our time in Chicago!"

    "I was really pleased with my three day stay. Everything was clean and quite comfortable, and especially warm- it was hovering around negative degrees outside. All amenities for cooking and cleaning were available so I didn't have to alter my diet and eat out while there. The code entry doors were nice, didn't have to fumble around with a key or key card. The house is extremely historic and retains enough old time charm without sacrificing modern convieniences. Parking was decent, wasnt hard to find a spot despite deep snow on the ground. We will be staying there again next we come back to Chicago!"
