Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Loads of historic charm with modern updates. We found it more spacious than pictures suggest. Plenty of room for an active toddler, with kids books available. Cynthia and her family are gracious hosts who have thought of every detail. Good location about a mile from Wrigley. We had great weather and very much enjoyed the outdoor space.

Charming + Wonderful Stay! Choose Graceland Carriage House!

  • 5 of 5

My brothers, sister-in-law, and I stayed at Graceland Carriage House when we traveled to Chicago for a concert at Wrigley... The carriage house is full of unique charm and is extremely comfortable. Cynthia was a generous host - filling the kitchen with coffee, milk, water, beer, wine, snacks...couldn't have been happier with our quaint, clean, oasis! The neighborhood is quiet and very close to everything - we walked to our concert! We will definitely stay at Graceland Carriage House next time we're in Chicago! Thanks again, Cynthia!

Graceland Carriage, the perfect place to stay while in Chicago.

  • 5 of 5

This past weekend, we stayed in the Carriage house. The cottage location was quiet and it worked out really well for us, close to the train station and uber rides to downtown and Lincoln Park were reasonable. It's under a mile to Wrigley field if you're planning on attending a game. My husband and I stayed there with my daughter and her husband. The bathrooms were well supplied with large soft towels as well as a few toiletry items. Cynthia was wonderful and provided us with breakfast foods including great coffee and even a bottle of champagne. I was also very grateful for Cynthia who promptly mailed me some clothing items which I had forgotten in a dresser drawer. She was the best!

The cottage made our stay that much more enjoyable, a true home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

The house was better than we could have expected. We arrived to pastries, fruit, candy and fresh coffee waiting for us. The owner was wonderful and very accommodating. I will be staying here again on my future travels to Chicago.
