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 Wrigleyville

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.

Notes:
Our Classic 3-BR Victorian Greystone is located in one of Chicago's most beautiful and unique neighborhoods. Wrigleyville is full of restaurants, boutiques, live theater, and, of course, the friendly confines of Wrigley Field, the home of the Chicago Cubs! You could spend a week in Wrigleyville and not see all of the attractions, but our flat is only 2 blocks from the Belmont 'EL' Red Line train, which will whisk you down to the downtown Chicago (LOOP)in 15 minutes!

Noisy

  • 2 of 5

"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.

Owner's Response: Aaron, 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.

Perfect for a cubs game

  • 5 of 5

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.

excellent experience!

  • 5 of 5

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!
