Overview

About the property

5 Bedroom, 5 Bathroom & 1-Car Attached Garage

Exceptional 3700sf Brownstone (sleeps 8-14) located in a Chicago's charming Lincoln Park historical neighborhood. Please note that it is on four levels and it is not ADA compliant. Also, as you plan your travels to and from our vacation home, check-in time begins at 4pm and check-out time ends at 11am.

We’ve previously rented vacation homes in Wisconsin and Nantucket for use by our family and friends and we were disappointed with the availability of large rental homes close to downtown Chicago - although there are plenty of Condos. So, we recently acquired this historic home, which features various sleeping configurations for large multi-generational families on multiple floors, recently updated kitchen and baths, a lower level suite perfect for seniors or an au pair/nanny, 1-car indoor attached garage for parking, nearby parks, shopping and restaurants galore. Similar to our Boston Brownstone available at VRBO Listing #383697, this is a perfect residence for a large multi-generational family's vacation in Chicago, a wedding party's out-of-state relatives, a ladies shopping trip to Magnificent Mile, an executive's temporary assignment to Chicago, an executive attending a Master's Program at Loyola, Trade Show attendees/exhibitors, Chicago marathon runners, a Chef attending Le Cordon Bleu College or an actor during a role in a Chicago Broadway play or musical or in a Chicago filming.

Located at 2000 North Orleans, the residence is located only a short 1-block stroll east to Chicago's historic Lincoln Park (home of the Lincoln Park Zoo and from mid-May a Farmer's Market every Wednesday and Saturday during through Fall) and is about a mile from the famed-North End of Chicago's Magnificent Mile of Michigan Avenue shopping and restaurants.

Nearyby Restaurants include Home of Wrigley Field's StanBurger, Stanley's Bar & Grill, an Original House of Pancakes for a big breakfast, famous for its BBQ Baby Back Ribs is Twin Anchors, but nearby Four Farthings has awesome ribs as well as wonderfully large portions of Italian fare, Trattoria Ricardo's has great Italian as well, on Halsted is Rustic House (a well-kept secret) and Summer House both serving great American fare. Next door to our home is a great Thai restaurant, Geja's upscale Fondue style restaurant and a Subway for a quick casual sandwich. A block away is Mello's for great Italian Beef, Italian Sausage and Combo Sandwiches - guaranteed to fill you up!

In addition, our vacation home is about 1.5 miles to Chicago's infamous intersection of State Street & Rush Avenue, home of the following great gastronmic experiences: Gibson's Steakhouse, Morton's Steakhouse, Tavern on Rush, Hugo's Frog Bar and Fish House, Carmine's Italian, RA Sushi, and Dublin's Irish Pub.

About Tim Hyland

We love to travel as empty-nesters and spend time with our extended families and friends. Although we primarily live in Scottsdale, Arizona, we love spending time in Chicago and Boston, so we acquired brownstones in both cities to enjoy ourselves and to share with others.

Tim Hyland purchased this house in 2014

Why Tim Hyland chose Chicago

With my parents, sisters, spouses, nieces and nephews and the three of us (my wife and I and our son John), there are 14 of us total. We were unable to find a large short-term rental home in a convenient Chicago area that could sleep all of us comfortably, so we acquired this perfect property furnished it to do just that - just awaiting our City of Chicago vacation rental license.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location. Just a block from Chicago's historic Lincoln Park and a mile from the North End of the Magnificent Mile shopping district on Michigan Avenue, the location is perfect! You will not be disappointed!

Makes a Chicago trip 24/7 luxury

  • 5 of 5

Space and pampering in Chi-town’s best locale makes the rest of the trip as satisfying as your main reason for being there. The owners went over the top to make every bedroom, every bath, every common area wrap the occupant in comfort. Beds are comfortable, the kitchen has everything, and the patios provide micro urban retreats.

Bachelorette party

  • 5 of 5

This house was gorgeous and in the BEST location! Plenty of beds and bathrooms for 11 girls. Was very clean and had everything we needed. We enjoyed the rooftop patio for brunching and the space the house offered us. Tim was great and very quick to respond if we had a question. Would highly recommend for future stays!

Exquisite House in Lincoln Park!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay in this beautifully remodeled home -- right in the heart of the Lincoln Park neighborhood! We walked to the zoo, the lakefront, Clark Street restaurants, the park, etc. It was the perfect landing spot for our family of seven as we were in town for a wedding. The home is clean, historic, beautifully appointed, and so very welcoming. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect home for our visit. The kitchen is so gorgeous and good for entertaining -- light streams in and it is a bright and cheery spot. The three patios are fabulous and each offers a different view and vibe. The Hylands are great to work with and made our stay so easy ! Truly a memorable vacation -- we hope to return for another visit!

This house exceeded our expectations in every way!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for my sister's bachelorette party weekend. I live in Chicago (in Lincoln Park) and this location was crazy good! We had 12 girls staying at the house, and we all fit comfortably with a bed for each person! The house is beyond gorgeous, and all of the little courtyards/outdoor spaces are unlike anything I've ever experienced in Chicago. Everything was so thought out by the owners, including: Gym passes at the local equinox, hair wash/body wash in every shower, more than enough towels/bedding, every type of serve-ware you would need in the kitchen, steamer for your clothes, and more! The owners were responsive and left detailed checklists/instructions to help with navigating such a great/Big property. We had such an amazing weekend in Chicago celebrating, and this house really was a HUGE part of it. We had dinner/drinks on Saturday night at the house and the magnificent kitchen/dining space made it a chic and elegant experience. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Chicago!

Amazing!!! Loved EVERYTHING about this house!

  • 5 of 5

I don't even know where to begin. Everything about our experience was fantastic. Let me start by saying that I live in Chicago and I know the city well and you cannot beat this location. For my 50th birthday we wanted to have a party, but our condo is not big enough to host guests for a weekend. When I saw this rental, I immediately knew it would be perfect. We had friends and family coming in from out of town and we didn't want them staying in a hotel. The house was ideal, everyone had a beautifully decorated room with their own private bathrooms. We all had privacy when we wanted it and incredible common areas when we wanted to hang out. We planned on covering the cost of everyone's hotel rooms and for what it would have cost to do that, we had this whole beautiful home instead. One thing that I don't like about staying in hotels with a group is that you don't have a place to just hang out. You have to either be in someone's room, which is weird or be in a restaurant or bar. We actually saved money by staying in this amazing home because we stocked our own kitchen and bar. The house is decorated impeccably, you feel as though you are in someone's incredibly classy home. The kitchen, dining room and living room were perfect not only for the party, but for hanging out as well. They had wonderful holiday decorations and even had a Christmas tree up which added to the festive feel of the place. The kitchen was fantastic and had everything you could possibly need. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the beds were great. The weekend of the party was really cold with the actual temperature being below zero and my family from Florida and my friends from Texas were all very comfortable and it was great to be staying in a place that nobody wanted to leave! Logistically the place is perfect and it was wonderful to have a private garage. The night of the party everyone found parking on the street nearby, which was great. We are planning to rent this house again in the summer because it was perfect when it was below zero, so I can only imagine how great it will be in the summer, so close to the lake and Lincoln Park and it has beautiful private courtyard and an amazing private roof top deck. I had a fantastic 50th birthday weekend and so much of the success of that weekend I attribute to this beautiful home and to the wonderful owner Tim, who was so accommodating and easy to work with. I loved everything about it! Thank you!
