"This was an excellent location (extremely central, practically across the street from Grant Park) and less expensive than the hotels in the area. It's not a luxury accommodation but a small, clean, quiet studio apartment, perfect for 1 or 2 people visiting for a week of Chicago sightseeing. All trains, including the blue line from O'Hare, come within walking distance of this location. For breakfast in the neighborhood, there's a French pastry place and Wildberry Cafe, and there's a Target store nearby for food and supplies."

"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!"

"We spent a week here while our daughter attended a camp in Cape Girardeau Mo. We had a great time fishing and exploring. This cabin is the cleanest we have experienced using vrbo. Ken answered all emails and calls promptly. We wish we could have stayed another week, but the cabin was booked. We will be back and would highly recommend Ken and his cabins. This is by far the best value on vrbo."

"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."
