Why William Harty chose West Rogers Park
The location is perfect. I wanted to be close to the lake, airport and Evanston. I am a fanatic for wonderful architechture and Rogers Park is known for the late 20's grand style. Only 10 miles from O'Hare Field. Midway Airport is 22 miles away. Just a 15 minute ride on the Union Pacific train to the heart of the city. This train stop is only 6 blocks from Residence on the Avenue. Ravinia Park, the out door concert venue can be reached in 20 minutes by this same train.The Red line will take you to Wrigley Field, Lincoln Park Zoo & to down town. Wrigley Field home to the World Series Championship Cubs is just 15 minutes from our location!
What makes this Condo unique
I love the location. All that the city has to offer is so reachable. Lake Shore Drive is so close and can take me to the Magnificient mile (Michigan Avenue)Or head the other direction where LSD becomes Sheridan Road & view the beautiful mansions along the way to the Chicago Botanical Garden..........All along the the lake front. I enjoy as well the peacefulness ofthe beautiful North Shore towns of Evanston, Willmette, Winnetka & Glencoe Having the lake front so close is also a benefit.

The apartment was well-maintained and everything worked as expected. In the cold Chicago winter this place felt warm and welcoming. We very much enjoyed our stay.
Nice neighborhood, cozy apt.
We had four staying here for several days. It is located in a nice residential neighborhood about 30 min north of the city, within a mile or so of Lake Michigan. Do get the parking if you are bringing a car, you will need it. Everything clean. Would be better with a bit more counter space in each bathroom, and also the beds were hard and had plastic protector sheets which makes them hot. Adding a 3/8" mattress pad over the protector would let them breath more and be more comfortable.
Comfy and furnished nicely, great appliances
Our first HomeAway stay. Had everything we needed. Quiet and comfortable. The garage parking is important as street parking is scarce.
A home away from home.
I stayed in the lovely garden apartment for the entire month of November 2017. I found it to be more beautiful than the pictures online even looked. The apartment was very clean, the kitchen was a dream kitchen with high-end appliances and is fully stocked with everything you might need. There was a coffee pot Available along with some other basic grocery items. The linens were very high-quality and the beds extremely comfortable. I love the walk-in shower in the master bathroom. Having an on-site manager made it very nice for any questions that I had during my stay. He was immediately available to help me.
The location is very convenient and especially close to Skokie where every shop in the world is available for your shopping enjoyment or needs. The garden apartment is located in a very quiet neighborhood and I felt safe at all times. I would stay there again with no hesitation.
Home away from home
We stayed in the garden unit and top floor one. Wiliam was very accommodating with our dates. Even when we thought we would have to make a change because of the hurricane in FLA where we live he helped us feel like we had a place to go and feel safe. It never came to that but we appreciated the concern. Then when we got to the units we were so happily surprised with the comfort and ease of the location and home feeling, we knew we made the right decision. This location is about a 15 min walk to either the El into Chicago or a bus ride into Evanston. There are also grocery stores or more within the same 15 min walk.
Great location, home, and host
We use VRBO once or twice a year around the U.S., and this was a great place to be. Our host met us, personally showed us parking and gave a few tips on local places to eat and stock up. The garden level flat was as roomy and nicely decorated as shown in the photos, with good quality towels and kitchen items. The binder of information was very helpful, with suggested routes to get to the train (about .75 miles to the nearest Red Line stop). We rode the Red Line into the city and back for a day trip, and then on an evening trip where we came back later, we arranged in advance for private car service using the recommended company. All was smooth and convenient. We highly recommend this for a northern Chicago getaway!
North Shore. Near Northwestern University. Loyola University. 20 minutes to Downtown Chicago. 5 minutes to down town Evanston. Walking distance to the Red Line as well as bus service so you can reach the city center with in 20 minute.
