We have four sleeping areas:
-- master bedroom with a king-sized bed that sleeps two;
-- A second bedroom with a bunk bed that sleep two;
-- A third bedroom with a queen-sized bed that sleeps two;
-- And a library with a day bed that sleeps one and has an attached bathroom.
Just so you are aware: we do not have a TV at this property. We of course have wi-fi throughout the house. and in today's world with so many viewing options on laptops and iPads it might just work out fine. But we did want to tell you so you are not surprised.
Five reasons you should book this single-family home today:
Reason #1: You can experience Chicago like a local in the heart of tree-lined Lincoln Park and Old Town. You can walk to the beach, to the Lincoln Park Zoo and the Magnificent Mile shopping district. The famous Chicago 'L' train station is only a 5-minute walk away.
Reason #2: You'll have plenty of space to spread out. Why squeeze your family into a tiny condo when you can live in a four-bedroom house for what you'd pay for a hotel room?
Reason #3: You can relax on our beautiful deck after your day in the city or at the beach.
Reason #4: Garage parking is FREE for all rooms booked by May 1. Old Town and Lincoln Park offer very little street parking, and the city is not shy about towing cars away. Why worry? Parking in our garage comes with the house.
Reason #5: Rent our home and walk, bike or take a short cab ride to Cubs games at Wrigley Field
Our house straddles the border of Chicago's quaint, leafy Old Town neighborhood. It is the perfect place for families with children as well as adults looking for a true Chicago experience.
We have priced our home so it will always be the most inexpensive single-family residence on VRBO.
Restaurants are all within walking distance, include Twin Anchors, the country's #1 rated ribs joint.
If you like nightlife, the charming Old Town business district includes some of the best restaurants and pubs in Chicago, and includes the now-famous Second City Comedy Club.
Turn right and walk five blocks to the 'L' station and connect to anywhere in the city.

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: He is a publisher and she is a concert pianist, which explains the Steinway grand in our living room.
Why the Owner Chose Lincoln Park, Chicago, IL, USA:
We were looking for the perfect urban home — one that provides a great family feeling but located smack dab in the middle of the city.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's almost impossible to find a city house with light streaming in from every window. Our neighbors' lots to the north and south are gardens. This open space gives our guest the impression that they're in the country. You can't find that anywhere else. Garage parking seems like a small matter. Not here in Lincoln Park and Old Town. It is nearly impossible to find legal, street parking here. And the city is ruthless when it comes to ticketing. And our garage is FREE if you book by June 1.
