"Everything about this carriage house was awesome! From its location on a quiet, tree-lined side street to the quirky, fun decor, we couldn't have asked for anything better for our Chicago getaway. Cynthia was the perfect hostess and provided everything from fresh flowers to a fully stocked fridge with wine and chocolate. The home is a 15 minute ride from downtown Chicago and a short walk to the train station and Lake Michigan. The stairs are steep so if you have mobility issues, this home is not for you. But otherwise, if you are looking for a quiet and homey place to rest while you take in everything that Chicago has to offer, the Graceland Carriage House is the place for you!"

"I cannot thank the owner enough for making our stay safe, enjoyable and relaxing. The manager of the establishment was extremely prepared for our arrival. When we arrived, the manager was waiting for us outside and took us on a tour of the condo. He also had a binder prepared with all the attractions and transportation in the area. The appliances, bathroom and overall condo was very clean. It was wonderful to be able to spend time with my college age children in a spacious condo. In addition to the space, having two bathrooms was a luxury. We would rent this condo again ."

Great middle ground between a hotel and staying at an individually owned property
"This property, while VRBO, is managed by a professional group - http://www.athomeinnchicago.com. We saw the benefits of this arrangement immediately when the wax ring on the toilet broke while we were there. We called while on our way to the Shedd Aquarium downtown and it was fixed before we made it back to the unit. I'm not sure that would have happened if this was just someone's house they were away from. And everything in terms of payment and details for checking in were extremely clear and well documented.
As for the accommodations, they were exactly as advertised. Pictures perfectly represent the property and the location is great. Being a few blocks from the Sedgwick stop on the EL means you can get just about anywhere in the city easily.
My only minor complaint is that the property smelled musty and that took some getting used to. The place was reasonably clean but not immaculate. We have very young kids so I spent quite a bit of time on the floor and fishing toys out from under furniture so keep in mind that my inspection of the cleanliness got a little more intense than most people will experience!
I would definitely stay again."

-Though surprisingly little street noise comes through, the apt is on top of restaurat and cAn hear music and such In front bedroom late at night. Not a problem if u r a heavier sleeper or are up late yourself
-kitchen Sink was awkward but sufficient
-Sofas had stains and could use a sheet on top or slip covers
-in summer i would be tempted to look for place with patio or balcony but was perfect for our last minute fall visit.
Overall we had a great stay and we felt very welcomed and comfortable and cozy here. It was a hit with my 7 year old and 10 yr old girls and i was able to have my extended family over for appetizers and drinks, and pizza ordered from one block away. Jon, the owner was very available and responsive to our last minute booking and our needs. I would stay here again.
