  • Fantastic rental, fantastic location, fantastic everything!

    "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!"

  • 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!"

  • AMAZING, WE WILL DEFINITELY COME BACK!

    "We just came back from Chicago. We wanted to thank the owners and the staff for your assistance. We had a great time. All the info that was provided made it easy to maneuver through the city. The condo was very impressive and our friends from overseas had an excellent time. You helped me over-deliver in a big way! We will definitely recommend your property to our friends, and hopefully we will come back soon!"

  • Perfect stay for a Chicago family vacation

    "The Clark Suite was perfect for our family gathering in Chicago for Christmas. There were 8 of us traveling from NY, TX & PA. The house is beautiful, clean & comfortable. It had everything we needed, even a Christmas tree, making us feel at home right from the start. The bathrooms & kitchen were fully equipped. We were able to cook meals, even a complete holiday dinner with enough room for 12 of us to eat together. A great, safe neighborhood, we were able to walk to the grocery store & shopping, walk/run to the lake, and catch the train to go downtown. Teri was wonderful, returning my calls & answering questions promptly, putting me at ease. I would highly recommend the Clark Suite for anyone staying in Chicago. It was the perfect vacation. Thank you Teri for sharing your beautiful home."
