Why Owner / Property Manager chose Lincoln Square
The home sits on a quiet tree lined street just blocks from trendy Lincoln Square with great eateries and bars. Down Lincoln Avenue, you can find a craft breweries but, when you're done for the day, escape to a quiet oasis with all the amenities. This home will knock your socks off!
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
The house worked very well for 3 families meeting, quick access to the train station station. Nice linens and towels. Would encourage future renters to get check in /check out procedures prior to stay - we did not receive; and contacted the owner for help. We were chided to use/refer to these documents for internet and TV access. Also, the requirement to launder all towels prior to an 11 am checkout is stressful.
Great location, great property and great value.
We stayed here for a family Christmas vacation. The property easily accommodated seven adults and two toddlers, and the second floor living room made it easy for grandparents to watch cartoons with the grandchildren while the young adults enjoyed having the ample first floor to themselves. The kitchen and two separate dining areas were perfect for fixing meals and feeding a hungry crew. The location is ideal for getting around Chicago, only two blocks from the Rockwell station on the Brown Line. Between the “L” and Uber, we barely used our cars.
The one negative, and its a small one, is a lack of cooking gear in the kitchen. Could have used a cutting board and some more utensils, but we managed fine. The showers are the bomb - great water pressure and endless hot water.
On the first day, the cable internet and tv did not work. Daniel, the owner, managed to get Comcast out the next day (some idiot had cut the cable in the alley) and DirecTV on a Saturday and we were back in business. Very attentive owner.
If you’re looking for a capacious, well located brownstone within walking distance of all of Lincoln Square, you’ve found it!
Great Location, Great Layout, Poorly Managed
Talman house has a great location. An easy walk around the corner to the Brown line, restaurants and grocery store within easy walking distance while still being on a quite residential block. The lay out of the house is perfect for a group of 9 people. The down side is the property is poorly managed, door knobs were missing, closets with no shelves or cloth rods. Some towels and linens were stained and thread bear, we did not have an adequate supply of toilet paper, and there were towel still in the the washing machine when we arrived. The kitchen cabinets were disorganized and needed cleaned. The manager was hard to communicate with, not returning emails. He stopped by one day but did not stay to hear our concerns. Actually telling us that he had forgotten we were arriving. Again we enjoyed the property and it's amenities but be advised of what you are getting into.
great location from the train, cute town
hi, we did have a nice stay in Chicago as the town is super cute; great places to eat; great location to the train and 25-30 minute ride into the center of town . I would recommend that the owner put some more time into some maintenance of the home (which has some small things that could be fixed quickly); and buy some new linens, towels and pillows (which are old and ragged). I would also recommend getting rid of the "wash your own towels" before leaving as we found this really stressful with a morning departure.
Saved the Day and Weekend for our Group!
Our other location cancelled on us last minute. The owners were responsive and turned a bad situation into a great one. The home was awesome and our weekend unaffected by the sudden change in plans. We were able to focus on having fun and enjoying Chicago and the convention we were attending. Would definitely stay here again and everyone had tons of room to relax and unwind at the end of the day!
Great location and Tons of Room for Everyone
It seems the overall theme of reviews for this home was correct. It's a great home with impressive amenities, all of which were very nice BUT, the main thing was it was well-kept and provided easy access to the city. We experienced no issues with the home and were free to enjoy the city. We expect to come back in the summer and this home will be on our list because it is an easy trip to Wrigley from here although we spent most of our time going downtown on the El. Great place and the owners were very attentive to our needs. When we noticed toilet paper was low and made a call, there was a knock at the back door in less than an hour and we were resupplied, it's the little things! We will be back.
