  • Cozy Comfort on Chicago's North Side

    "I recently re-visited Chicago for a college reunion. The first thing I can say about Magnolia Studios is that it is a real haven in a busy city. It's tucked away on a residential street and the studio is in an old brick coach house. It's been completely updated but feels 'historic' and is behind the main house in a charming garden. There are two studios I the building and ours had everything that one would need: well-appointed bathroom with a good shower,kitchen with stove, oven, fridge, toaster, microwave and all cooking essentials, very comfortable queen bed and all the necessary accessories - iron, blow dryer, etc. There is room for a third person which we thought we would need but didn't. It's amazing that the space doesn't feel crowded, but the whole place is very relaxing and calm. There are extra supplies at the top of the stairs which we didn't see immediately, but they're very useful. There's a limitless supply of coffee pods, bottled water, toiletries and towels! It was easy for my boyfriend and I to catch the nearby bus to Loyola or downtown so I could show him the sights. Most important of all, the studio was spotlessly clean. All in all, we were blown away by this place. It's a great deal and we will definitely be back in the summer."

  • Friends weekend

    "I have actually rented out this place a few times. I have come up with groups of friends. It so lovely to wake up and see the sunrise over the rolling hills and the sunset in the evening. The house is so comfortable and warm. There is plenty of acreage out back to take a morning stroll. Or cross country ski if there snow. It's also not too far of a drive to Chestnut mountain if you're looking to do a little down hill skiing as well. If you have a bike the territory is fun to ride in the rolling hills. Downtown is just a scenic drive away. I highly recommend this property with it's fireplace,full kitchen and beautiful deck to enjoy time relaxing outside. I love the territory as there aren't many lights on at night so you can view the amazing starscape. Coming from Chicago, this is something I look forward to most! This house has everything you need and the owners are great to work with!"

  • Beautiful winter retreat with friends

    "Dan's cabin has everything you need and more for a relaxing weekend in the woods. Zipline, hiking, and sledding are top notch, and games and naps around the fireplace can't be beat. Bedrooms are clean, cute and comfy, the kitchen has all of the cookware you'll need to prepare a mean brunch, and a short drive to Galena for a day-trip makes for a fun outing. We're excited to come back--thanks Dan and Herb!"

  • Excellent stay!

    "This is the second guesthouse we have stayed in. Both experiences were awesome! Joe and John were very informative, helping me select the best location for the weekend's activities. They also gave us free tickets to a comedy show! The apartments are very tastefully updated and have everything you need. Both apartments I stayed in(Roscoe Village & Old Towne) were on a residential street with permit parking but also very close to restaurants, coffee shops, and subway. Reasonable price and so much better than a hotel room! Can't wait to go back!"
