  • Great girls getaway!

    "My girlfriends and I rented this place for my birthday celebration a few weeks ago. It was perfect for the 6 of us. Location is ideal, and the home was nicely maintained. The owner (Ed) went above and beyond to make sure we had details about Galena, where to go and what to see. He was very quick to answer all our questions and made sure that we had a memorable experience. He also included access to the owner's club where we could use the pools etc in his fee. He also doesn't charge an extra cleaning fee, making this one of the most affordable units around. This unit is at the end of the street, so it's very quiet and peaceful. The back yard was amazing!!!"

  • 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!"
