The downstairs is where the real fun can be found. We have a huge, wide open rec room with an 8ft Pool table, flat screen, a card table, bar with seating for 6 and fridge.

Why Steve chose Lakeview
I love taking beautiful old buildings and restoring them to modern elegance that people can really enjoy. When I found this place, I knew it was going to need some work, so we kept the stately old features and gave it modern features. We did this project specifically with a vacation rental in mind, so we focused on creating large communal gathering spaces for our guests to enjoy when they aren't out taking in this amazing part of the city.
What makes this Condo unique
There is so much going on in Lakeview/ Wrigleyville that it really never ends, no matter what you are looking for, it is here to be found - that is if you can get your group to leave the beautiful home!!
Local Services & Businesses
Sports & Adventure Activities
The location was great. Worked out perfectly for our traveling to the museums downtown. Back bedroom was a little cold but worked out fine for us. Loved the amount of space, let you spread out with multiple families not feeling like they were on top of each other.
The Chicago home for our family of ten.
The location was good. Appreciated the patio and the great parking next to the house. The kitchen and second floor bath are very attractive but would have appreciated grab bars in the shower.
Interesting, friendly neighborhood.
Some missing items: only two drinking glasses and two face cloths. No lights in the living room and a temperamental floor lamp in the kitchen; light bulb missing in "Laundry Room"/paint storage room. Table mats as shown in the picture would have been appreciated.
Never found a key box but using the keyless entry worked out fine.
Dishwasher was hard to start.
Stairway needs a hand rail.
Nice size, great location
The Property has six functional bedrooms (beds and closets...no chest of drawers), nicely updated bathrooms and kitchen. Location of a walk from Wrigley is great. Only challenges were some musty smells in the basement level for a few days and the need for a few more coffee cups for the large crowd that stayed there. Having three off street parking spaces was a nice benefit. It worked well for our family reunion.
Walk around Wrigleyville
The property was a spacious one. We rented this unit for the number of bedrooms and bathrooms it had and that was crucial. The property itself delivered on everything you would want. We were able to walk to bars, restaurants and Wrigley Field is literally couple blocks away. The unit has majority of the bedrooms and bathrooms down in the basement, with a couple bedrooms and a bathroom on the main level. There were a couple things that we would have liked to have been updated, but nothing significant enough to warrant a negative rating. There were some stains and on the carpet and furniture, so that wasn't the most appealing sight. Some of the beds weren't the most comfortable, but again, we were able to lay our heads and catch some shut eye without a problem. The pool table definitely needs replacing, so if the idea of shooting some pool is what's drawing you to this unit, please look elsewhere. We really enjoyed the unit and it took care of all our needs. The kitchen, living room and dining room is where we spent all of our time when we were in there and it didn't have 7 people stepping all over each other. There's a parking lot beside the property which made getting picked easier on everyone. If you're looking for hotel accommodations, amenities and luxuries in a popular part of town at a deep discount..... then you need a reality check. If you are looking for a reasonable stay at a reasonable rate with a location that is awesome, then go ahead and book this one. I would book this one again if I had a big group like I did for this trip.
Blew away expectations!
This property is even more spacious than it looks! We stayed for a bachelor party and it was hard to go even go out because the property was so accommodating. The owner was also very flexible and polite.
Great Location, hospitality and accomodations.
I stayed with a group of 8 guys for a weekend in March. The home was spacious and slept all of us comfortably. The location was great, a short walk to the metro and right near Wrigley. There were plenty of bars and restaurants nearby, I would definitely come back in the summer for a Cubs game! Steve was quick to respond to any questions that I had leading up to and during our stay. He was also helpful recommending local attractions for us to visit. Overall, I couldn't have asked for a better host and place to stay!!
