About Teri Smith

Someone one said, "find a job you love, never work a day in your life!" Glad I took that advice!

Running Chicago Guest House in Wrigleyville has been my dream job for 15 years! I take great pride in what I do and what I provide for my Guests. so come see for yourself what makes Chicago Guest House the perfect choice when you're visiting Chicago.


Teri Smith purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Teri Smith chose Wrigleyville

This is not your typical cookie-cutter rental; my personality & style shines through!

My goal has always been to have my Guests experience the sense of having arrived ‘home’ when they walk through the door---to feel as comfortable & relaxed here in Chicago as they do their own home. Each time I read another testimonial; I think to myself. Mission Accomplished!

What makes this apartment unique

The Guest House on Lakewood Avenue has three apartments, each floor can be rented separately or rent them together for larger gatherings--up to 21.

It's great to all be under one roof, without being on top of one another--the three separate spaces offer privacy when you need it.

And best of all--the little piece of nature outside the back door. The garden is private & peaceful--perfect place to decompress, relax and enjoy.

Great Easter Vaction

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. the house was beautiful and well kept. Parking was available in the back and we did not have to worry about street parking. Walking distance from the stadium. Everything you ever need for cooking was there and the grill in the back made for an excellent out door experience.

Owner's Response: Tricia, So glad you enjoyed your stay! Parking sure does come in handy when all those folks show up to watch baseball! Ha! And I'm glad the weather worked out so you could grill out. Garden isn't in full bloom yet, but still nice to sit out there. Hope to have you back again!

This space was absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (8 adults in total) found this space perfect for us. The apartment is beautifully decorated and maintained. Terri was so helpful and receptive to any questions we may have had. It snowed quite a bit while we were there and she even had someone come to shovel the front so we could get out easily. I would 10/10 recommend this place and use it again for family visits.

Owner's Response: Snowed quite a bit is right! Couldn't keep you trapped in the house now could I? LOL I'm so happy you enjoyed the home. I do hope your family comes back to visit you OFTEN--I enjoyed having them. Thank you so much Ellen! Teri

In the shadow of Wrigley

  • 5 of 5

Teri is a special host. Very prompt on all our questions. The HOME on Lakewood was great. Just a quick walk to Wrigley. Very quiet neighborhood ( Cubs were out of town)… These four brothers and wives from rural Ohio farmland loved the experience. A clean home and a gracious host makes all the difference. Highly recommend. Bob, Ohio

Owner's Response: Very special?! You make me blush! :o) I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. And yes, it was quiet with no games, but it's still pretty quiet on Lakewood even on game day. So next time you plan a trip--plan to see a game! Hope to have you all back again soon. Teri

Lakeview's Wrigleyville is one of Chicago's liveliest and most vibrant neighborhoods. Several distinct areas all meld together to form a family friendly community that celebrates diversity and boasts something for every type of visitor.


Hit the bustling commercial shopping districts on Southport Ave, Belmont & Halstead Streets for those one of a kind finds!


Live it up with the locals at the seemingly endless bars and pubs, and celebrated restaurants; the dining choices are endless!


Live music venues, several summer street festivals and a thriving scene for theater, dance and comedy.


Home to our beloved Cubs! Even if you don’t’ get to spend the afternoon watching a game, you don't want to miss strolling over to the corner of Clark & Addison to see one of baseball's oldest ballparks nestled amongst the historic Greystone homes that make up this amazing neighborhood! And you don't want to miss the events at The Park all year long!


Not to be outdone by its extraordinary entertainment landscape, Lakeview makes full use of the northern end of Lincoln Park. Enjoy the scenic Lakefront Trail, a golf course and so much more!
