  • tidy condo, easy booking

    "Very nice and clean studio, great location, cool building, and easy to book. Bill was prompt and courteous. It was perfect for me and my husband for a weekend getaway in Chicago. Our destination was the museum of contemporary art to see the Bowie exhibit. It was a quick cab ride there. Also plenty to see and do in the neighborhood as noted by other reviews. We went to a few pubs and to the movies just a few blocks away. We only stayed two nights but wish we could stay longer. The building itself is an architectural marvel!"

  • 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."

  • Family getaway

    "The Castle was great for a family reunion. It was big enough for 20 people. We had mainly indoor activities because it was winter. One of the best things about it was the number of large spaces where different groups could hang out. There were often 2 or 3 games going on at once and we never felt crowded. Although there were not beds for all 20, we brought sleeping bags and the big movie room accommodated most of the teens. Two little kids found quite a lot of room for running. We also went on walks around the property and lake, and it was wonderful to have nights that were so quiet and dark. Check-in and check-out was easy and Debbie was very helpful and gave a good tour."

  • Reasonably priced, perfect locale

    "Stayed here with two grad school girlfriends. It's small, but the price is right. Lots to do within walking distance. Easy parking. 5 minute walk to subway. Quiet. It was clean. A deep cleaning should be done but we were not disappointed. We had a slight plumbing problem, and it was taken care of with no fuss. Would recommend to friends!"
