VRBO Bear stayed here:
Our recent bear travels brought us to the lovely Gold Coast neighborhood on Chicago’s North Side. We experienced the culture firsthand in this beautiful Victorian Brownstone, amidst a quiet tree-lined picturesque street. What a delight!
This prime location offers an array of activities within close proximity. The famous Magnificent Mile can be found a few blocks away, where you will find every kind of shop imaginable for the seasoned shopper to the shopping browser. Elegant and casual dining can be found within a short scenic walk. Enjoy the historical churches and buildings that align the perfectly manicured Michigan Avenue. Stroll along the paved pedestrian walkway to Navy Pier where you will find shops, rides and fun for all ages at this local tourist attraction. An assortment of elegant and casual dining can be found a few scenic blocks away. Attend a variety of theaters and museums throughout the city, which are easily accessible by public transportation.
The owners were accommodating and hospitable, creating an enjoyable stay from the start. We loved the brownstone’s ideal location and the brownstone’s interior was equally charming. We were impressed with a private entryway and winding staircase leading us up to the third floor apartment. We found it roomy and sophisticated yet it was comfortably equipped with all the necessities of home. The stained glass windows in the living room added to the tasteful décor. Beautiful hardwood and granite flooring throughout, an updated kitchen and an elegant bedroom gave us the Victorian ambiance and antique charm we were hoping to experience!
We were delighted to experience Chicago by staying in this fabulous brownstone apartment nestled in a quaint neighborhood and are sure you will as well!

Half a block to Oak Street Beach and around the corner from the heart of the Mag Mile. You cannot get this type of convenience by staying in Lincoln Park, Wrigleyville, or South Loop. A perfect mixture of tree-lined street, neighborhood charm and being in the heart of the action that is downtown Chicago.
Year Purchased: 2008

Why the Owner Chose Near North Side, Chicago, IL, USA:
There is only one Gold Coast in Chicago and this historical building is in the heart of it. Our endeavor started out with simply wanting a place to stay when we would visit and eventually use in retirement. We love Chicago and all the City has to offer...from great food, to world class shopping, to museums, architecture, sports, beaches...you name it and Chicago has it all.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The location cannot be beat. Chicago's epicenter for nightlife is at the end of the block with fabulous restaurants like Gibson's, Tavern On Rush, Morton's, etc. coming together in a perfect triangular parklike setting. If you want to feel like a true Chicago resident in one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Chicago, this is the place. The tree-lined street is a perfect prelude to your arrival at this historical building. Shopping on Michigan Avenue is just a block away as well. It's an AMAZING location!
