About The Owner

Mark and Ashley are a husband and wife team that have one foot planted firmly in Chicago. As a former Chicago resident for 10 years, Ashley has both friends and family in Chicago. We have twins who love to visit their home in Chicago! They both know that Dad's favorite building is the Hancock.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2008

Why The Owner chose Near North

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, name it and Chicago has it all.

What makes this apartment unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The four of us enjoyed our stay in the beautiful brownstone property on Cedar. The location was perfect for walking everywhere from Second City to the Art Institute. We were able to comfortably visit together but had privacy at the same time. The restaurants and nightclubs were right around the corner and we enjoyed several of them. Cedar is a very quiet residential street and sleeping was easy and we felt safe and right at home.

Great property and excellent location

  • 4 of 5

We met our two adult daughters in Chicago to celebrate the holiday season. The location of this property could not have been better - one block off the lake on a quiet street of classic, well-maintained three story brownstones close to shopping, restaurants, public transit and in the heart of the Gold Coast. We were in the lower two floors, which consisted of a well-equipped, updated kitchen, eating area, good sized bedroom and full bath downstairs and a second good sized bedroom, full bath, and large, comfortable seating area with TV on the main level. The unit was well equipped and very comfortable. Both of the sofas upstairs were pull-outs, which made them somewhat less comfortable as seating areas, but still very serviceable. The bathrooms are both rather compact, so a larger person may find it a bit challenging. Overall condition, fit, finish and comfort was very good and the character, charm and terrific location far outweighed any of the small negatives, many of which just come along with being in an older, classic building. We would definitely rent this unit again.

Great GoldCoast location, 1/2 block off beach, lovely street. Could use some refreshing and upgrading of furnishings. A good space, especially for two couples. Easy check in check out.

This is a very nice place to stay. Tons of character in the home and in the neighborhood. It was in the best location central to anywhere in Chicago. Very safe area. We were so impressed with the flowers in the neighborhood and how well-kept everything was. Thanks for sharing your lovely place!!!

Plenty of room to relax and hang out inside in this beautiful, well managed Brownstone, or venture right out the door to restaurants, shopping and Lake Michigan!
