"Last year, my wife & I stayed at Magnolia Studios as part of an extended holiday in the US. We both loved the place. As soon as I knew I had a conference in downtown Chicago, I immediately booked again. Studio 1 proved a wonderful haven in the bitter tail-end of a cold Chicago winter. It was a welcome change to the usual conference accommodation and was as warm and comfortable in the winter as it had been cool and comfortable in the summer. While there for 11 nights, some plumbing work was required in the garden. By way of apology for any inconvenience, I arrived home one evening to find a fine selection of Illinois brews and some chocolates accompanying an explanation of what could be expected. More than adequate compensation for having to wait 5 seconds for the plumber to step aside one morning and me step across a hole. I would highly recommend this place as an ideal alternative to a hotel for anyone with a bit of time to spend in Chicago."

"We stayed at this property over 4th of July weekend and could not have been more satisfied! It was close to everything in the Galena Territory, but secluded enough to be peaceful. I would definitely stay here again!"

"I couldnt' have asked for a better place to stay for my boyfriend and I's recent wine trail excursion. The place looks like a downtown Chicago loft dropped down in the middle of small town Alto Pass (I actually live in downtown Chicago and it puts my condo to shame!). Brian has thought of every detail imaginable.....from the modern decor to the latest technology. I am eager to go back soon and hopefully bring friends as I cannot think of one person I know who wouldn't adore it. The wine trail itself is unbelievable. I've been on many of these tours, and this is hands down the most versatile, unique set of wineries I've ever visited. The countryside is georgous and it is very clear from the get go that the people at the vineyards are truly passionate about what they do. Everyone was so friendly and accomodating. Many of them also brew beer so if you are dragging a boyfriend (like me) who prefers beer vs wine, you are all set! I'm telling you though, if you are planning to do this trip in one day, you are going to be sorry! Take my advice and go for (at LEAST) a long weekend! It is impossible to hit up all the wineries in one day, there is all sorts of little farmers markets and shopping nearby and of course, you are going to want to hang out at Brian's place and enjoy it because it is SO relaxing and georgous. Go for it, you won't be sorry!"
