"This is our 3rd year staying at the Retreat House. It is a great house with tons of amenities. This year we held our annual Thanksgiving and Christmas joint holiday party with the family and we were treated to a wonderful snowfall on Friday night. The views were great and we all had a great time. If you get a chance to rent this house, please do. The owners are very responsive and great to work with. We will be back next year!"

"Five of us high school girlfriends (now sixty somethings!) stayed at this property for 5 day weekend and it could not have been more perfect! The home is comfortable and clean and had room for all of us. The kitchen island was great for sitting around while we cooked and talked; the living room was great for more talking and wine. The neighborhood is really cute and safe. The area had great shopping and restaurants and a really nice grocery store (with liquor) in walking distance. With the train only a couple of blocks, it worked great not to bother with a rental car. We would love to come back and will definitely check Chicago Guest House availability! Teri had the lights on and music playing when we arrived. She also was able to allow us to check in early and drop our bags so we could get out and about with out lugging our bags. Thanks for an awesome vacation!"

Very nice & clean place with EVERYTHING you NEED & WANT
"This rental was very nice and cozy! The kitchen was equipped with more than enough plates, silverware, cookware. Everything in the kitchen is in bulk. Basic spices and coffee pot liners were already there as well- very surprising. Another thing I like is the home already had nice candles, liquid hand wash, dish detergent, and more. The game stock was good although we did not play any. Searching through the closets, I saw the home is ready for all- those with babies, get cold easily (extra), cleaning materials. I don't think the home was lacking anything. The shower in the master bedroom is the best!!! All of the rooms were nice and cozy. Having the washer and dryer in the home was very convenient as well. They left any items we needed visible and let us know to contact them if we had questions. I don't have any complaints except is seems like as soon as you get comfortable, it's time to check out. That means, next time I need to stay more than 3 days. The owner was fantastic regarding communication. They game me the best response time and feedback than anyone. I was notified throughout the process which I appreciated. Diane was a sure pleasure to work with and would definitely rent her home again. Oh, the best thing is the home is pet-free, meaning I didn't have to worry about fur and animal scent. Please beware that the couches are super comfty and can cause you not to sleep in your bed!! ;)"

"We just stayed here last week and were glad we did. We originally had a hotel booked, but changed our minds after finding this place. It's convinient to the train station to ride anywhere you want in the city, but if you want to rent a car there is parking available. We came in to attend a couple games at Wrigley and this property gave my group ample space and ammenities to make it feel like home. I would definitely recommend it.
Thanks again and when the Cubs make it back to the NLCS we will be back!"
