Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: I've been in the hospitality business in Chicago for about 20 years. My husband and I run a pub style bar and restaurant that is best known as a great place for karaoke. We also operate a 10 room B&B near Wrigley field in Chicago. Our cottage in Grayslake, Illinois is a retreat we enjoy when we want a quick getaway from the city without having to travel too far. We love to travel and like comfortable but simple settings, places that feel like home and we want you to feel the same. We love history and have lots of cool antiques at our B&B which also is home to Room 13, a prohibition style speakeasy. We like classic cocktails, jazz, art and baseball too! We love Chicago and Lake County and are happy to give you insider tips and recommendations, especially for unique, independent places.
Why the Owner Chose Grayslake, IL, USA:
The reason we picked this property is because it is so quick and easy to get to from Chicago and althought it is still in the Greater Chicago area, when you are inside looking out at the lake you feel like you are "up north." We also love the village itself; Grayslake has friendly people, unique businesses a farmer's market (twice a week in season) and a sense of history. And there are several parks and nature preserves to explore nearby.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The views from the deck are great. Sunrise here is special - especially front the master bedroom upstairs. Birds abound here to - we have even seen migrating swans in the spring and fall here. The decor is ecletic and we hope you 'll enjoy some of our unique finds.
