Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: Owners Jon & Helene have been in hospitality for over 20 years. Jon is a restaurateur & chef, and Helene is an international flight attendant and a former Chicago Architectural Foundation river cruise docent.

Why the Owner Chose North Side, Chicago, IL, USA:
We have been neighborhood residents for 15 years and have not only enjoyed raising a family while seeing a positive transformation of Chicago during that time, but also of the Roscoe Village neighborhood and its amenities. We own and operate two award-winning and acclaimed restaurants here, and realized we had the ideal setting for a bed & breakfast style vacation rental conveniently located right in the heart of our community.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Guests have immediate access to more than a dozen dining options to fit any budget, pretty sidewalk cafes & hidden backyard garden patios all just a few blocks away on Roscoe Street, as well as unique independently owned retail shops & boutiques (also a Starbucks nearby in a converted former Motorcycle Cafe 'The Ace Cafe'). Within walking distance there are family friendly parks, a baseball diamond, public pool, and a park district field house (offering tennis courts & a basketball court), as well as kayaking and canoeing nearby . The neighborhood is extremely walk-able, upper-middle class and safe, has seen a wave of renovations over the last decade, the neighborhood also boasts a 100+ year old Pencil Factory that has been converted to lofts, with original factory-worker row houses still intact located on adjacent blocks. Public transportation is super easy and just a half block away there is access to the Belmont Avenue Bus (access to the Red, Brown & Blue Lines), the Western Avenue Bus (Blue Line to Wicker Park/Bucktown & The Loop), plus the Addison Street Bus (direct to Wrigley Field - Home of the Cubs) just four blocks away. If you visit us in the summer, Wrigley Field is just a 20 - 30 minute walk (about a two miles) through residential neighborhoods and tree lined streets, filled with 100 year old + houses. The guest suite is also located a short walk from our wine bar, Volo. It is beautifully designed w/ an urban chic interior and rustic hidden backyard cabana garden in which we from time to time host weddings. Additionally, directly across the street from Volo is our celebrated casual brunch spot, Kitsch'n On Roscoe. Decked out in colorful 1970's retro dinette sets, and filled with assorted retro and vintage decor, Kitsch'n has been featured in Bon Apetit Magazine and on $40 a Day with Rachel Ray. Finally, in warmer months, you & your guests have private access to a beautiful shaded 600 sq. ft. garden patio w/table, chairs, grill & more.
