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 Chicago

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!

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!

Pearl_Jam@Wrigley

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed in the "Brown Line Flat" the weekend Pearl Jam played Wrigley Field. The flat was clean and easy to access. The owner/manager, Tara, was very helpful in making sure we had all the information we needed to check in. The location couldn't be better for a weekend in Chicago, especially one centered around a Cubs game (I only wish the Cubs had been in town while we were there, but Pearl Jam was a good substitute). Probably the only drawback to this flat is the CTA line literally right out the back door, so you do get the noise from the train going by periodically throughout the night while trying to sleep. Other than that, which really wasn't a big deal, we had a very enjoyable stay, and I would definitely consider staying there again in the future.

Cubs Weekend 2016

  • 5 of 5

Every year my buddies and I meet up in Chicago for Cubs Weekend. This is the... fifth? year we've stayed at the greystone flats. We love the location (easy walking distance to Wrigley) and the amenities. The deck is great for grilling and relaxing. Each flat has its own full kitchen, we've saved money doing our own cooking rather than going out to eat. I'm sure we will reserve it again in 2017.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

The unit couldn't have been better. Very comfortable and it had everything we needed. The location was great, we needed to be at the Merchandise Mart downtown and the EL was very convenient. There are a ton of bars and restaurants in the area, so food and entertainment was very close. I would highly recommend this property.

Beautiful, comfortable, great location

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic trip to Chicago. We stayed at the Red Line Flat right near Wrigleyville. Perfect home with a great warm feeling. So comfortable in every way. Tara was awesome to work with and made each step a breeze, and on super short notice. We have booked with AirBnb and owner cancelled two weeks before trip. Most of the places on Airbnb hadn't updated their calendars so finding a place thru them was very frustrating.

Would have loved to see a nice platter, appetizer tray or cheese board for Cocktail hour to serve on. Hardly a complaint to post just a suggestion.
