Car: Recommended

This apartment is nicely situated for you to experience Oak Park and the greater Chicagoland area. It is located 9 miles west of the Chicago downtown and between O'Hare & Midway (11 miles to each airport). Apartment is 1/2 mile away from train to downtown that links to trains to the airports. The apartment is also within a mile from Concordia University and Dominican University, which it makes it a perfect lodging option for guests in town for a reunion or Parent's Weekend.

The Frank Lloyd Wright Home & Studio is about four blocks away. From there you can admire many of Wright's homes and hundreds of other significant homes. Downtown Oak Park is just a couple of blocks further. Here you will have a large selection of restaurants and shops. There is also a movie theatre. Trader Joe's, Whole Foods & Jewel are all steps from downtown. Two blocks down from the apartment, you can enjoy authentic Chicago deep dish pizza at Giordanos. Afterwards, treat yourself to ice cream at Peterson's, which is an Oak Park institution. The villages of Forest Park & River Forest are right next door and offer their own selection of historic homes, shops & restaurants.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are an Oak Park family with a boy and a girl in the local grade school. We are in a situation in which we have this amazing apartment attached, yet entirely separate, from our home and have decided to rent it out. We are enormous fans of Oak Park, Chicago and the architecture that you will see in these areas. The apartment is designed to be a staging ground for those that are experiencing this great area.

Why the Owner Chose West Side, Chicago, IL, USA:
The owners of this apartment are life long Oak Parkers. We love this town and the greater Chicago area. We look forward to our guests enjoying and experiencing the place we call home.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Oak Park has a dearth of hotel rooms. Those that are available are a bit tired and no frills. This apartment is an alternative to those options and will allow guests to live as a family in a home-like setting, rather than cramped hotel rooms. The owners of this apartment will provide you everything that you need, while giving you all the privacy that you desire.
