1st Floor Red Line Flat
The Wrigley Flats are unique Chicago vacation rentals located 3 blocks south of Wrigley Field in city’s most sought after north side neighborhood---Wrigleyville! We have 2 flats---each with 3 bedroom | 1 bath that can be rented for a weekend getaway, a week long vacation or an extended stay. Because of our close proximity to Chicago’s lakefront, the vibrant nightlife, the eclectic dining scene & of course Wrigley Field; it’s no wonder visitors flock here to get a taste of something amazing!
What makes Wrigleyville most unique is that it is home to our beloved Chicago Cubs and historic Wrigley Field. The 2nd oldest ballpark in the America is situated right smack dab in the middle of our neighborhood! One minute you’re strolling down beautiful tree-lines streets surrounded by historic Greystone homes and then you turn the corner to come face to face with the iconic red Wrigley Field marquee; it’s really quite the sight!
Where Miracle Happen and Dreams Really Do Come True!
Since having won the 2016 world series Wrigley Field has exploded; a flurry of new shops, restaurants, a park and so much more! The block of Addison to Waveland, Clark to Sheffield had become our neighborhood’s town square. A gathering place for neighbors, families, baseball fans and visitors from all over the world.

About Tara Venable
My late wife Deb and I purchased our Chicago home in 2005. Both of us are fans of historic architecture and to find a place in on of the world's great cities was an added bonus. Our flats are exquisitely decorated with beautiful features. If you want to experience a long weekend or a week long stay in Chicago, we welcome you to reside in one of our two or three bedroom flats!

Why Tara Venable chose Lake View
There is almost no way to describe the excitement and positive energy in Wrigleyville. Even though our Victorian Greystone is in one of the world's great cities, when you step out the front door and walk down the street it is much like being in a small town. The corners have four-way stop signs, trendy bars and restaurants are everywhere. Boutiques and theaters dot the landscape, along with some of the most beautiful architecture you will ever see. We're exactly one mile from Belmont harbor on Lake Michigan. Only three blocks from the subway, you can be in the downtown loop in less than 20 minutes. You will fall in love with Wrigleyville and with our beautiful, historic greystone.
What makes this Apartment unique
The chief benefit of staying in our property is to reside in such a beautiful, classical Victorian building. Complete with a huge bay window parlor and dining room, there is plenty of space in our 1,400 square foot flats for the entire family. A large deck on the rear of the building is equipped with a large gas grill and plenty of lawn furniture; a great place for a family gathering. There is a free laundry on site and parking is also available off street or via street permit. There is also an option for you to purchase garage parking during your stay.

We loved it. We could walk to Wrigley and it was a cute little place.
We would definitely stay there again.
It was great to have you John! Thanks for the great care to our place! Maybe we’ll see you again for baseball season in 2018!
"L" train immediately behind this building makes it very difficult to sleep. Other tenants/residents were very noisy late at night. At one point someone began banging on the back door at 2am. Location is pretty good though.
I am sorry to hear you did not have a completely enjoyable stay in our Chicago greystone. While we cannot control the proximity of the "L" train to our place, we've had very few complaints in 11 years of business and are very sorry to hear you found the train disruptive. Other guests have openly talked about the "L" in their reviews, but none said it left them unable to sleep. We did invest in new windows as well. As the train is only moving about 20 mph behind our place as it makes a turn, it is usually not considered disruptive to our guests while inside the flat. I'm sorry this was not the case for you.
Regarding the noise from other tenants, I wish you had phoned me to let me know of the disturbance. I am available by phone at any time of day or night, as is our manager in Chicago who lives only 2 doors down. While I carefully screen guests who come into our units, sometimes a rowdy group slips through the cracks. Unfortunately if nobody lets us know about the noise, there is nothing we can do to fix it. Groups that are overly loud may be evicted from our units by the Chicago Police, so it's important we are made aware so the proper steps can be taken. We want everyone to have an enjoyable stay, but never at the expense of others.
We are sorry to hear your experience was less than excellent. If there is any other provide feedback you feel I should be aware of, I would welcome hearing from you.
Great location. Wonderful hosts. Perfectly clean.
Everything about my family's stay here was fantastic. This was the best Home Away / VRBO / AirBnB experience I have had.
Perfect for a cubs game
This is the perfect spot for enjoying a cubs game. It is very close to the stadium but just far enough off Clark to be quiet when you want some sleep. Everything that we needed was provided and we loved the thoughtful snack selection. I would definitely recommend and stay again.
We are so happy you had an enjoyable stay! Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and we sincerely hope to have you again sometime! Thank you for being wonderful guests.
Great place to stay!! Close to Wrigley and restaurants
Had a great time, would recommend this property!!
This flat is perfect for a Chicago get away! There were 4 adults in our party. The flat is very clean and comfortable. We spent a lot of time touring the city, so not much time in the flat itself. The dining table is great for visiting and cards. We had great weather and enjoyed hanging out on the back deck. The trains are frequent, but not an issue for us. We were on the second floor. We didn't mind the steps, but if you have trouble with steps, this may be a problem for you.
This is a great location - close to Wrigley and just a bus or train ride to downtown.
Communication with Tara was fantastic! She did everything possible to make sure we had a great experience. I'm very happy we were able to use the garage for parking.
We will definitely consider staying here during our next trip!
