Elegance, location, and all of the amenities

  • 4 of 5

We felt right at home among the exquisite and elegant internationally inspired décor. All of the amenities you might need are right at your fingertips. We were welcomed by a beautiful French wine, compliments of our host.

We have stayed in many Chicago (and international) Home Away's. During our next visit to Chicago, THIS home would be at the very top of our list.

VRBO Rental #730295

  • 5 of 5

We visit Chicago often from Boston area and have 2 children living in the area. Usually stay at the Lincoln Hotel (which is nice) but wanted to bring another couple and wanted a home atmosphere. This is definitely a very beautiful and cozy home. It is the perfect location and we were able to spread out and use the kitchen and relax at the end of a long day of site-seeing. Kellee could not have been nicer and it was my birthday and she even left us a birthday cake along with coffee and breakfast items. She checked in with us often to make sure we were comfortable and had all that we needed. We will return and rent again. The Armitage Street neighborhood is amazing and so much to do and see. In good weather you can walk to Michigan Avenue and along Lake Michigan (which we did). Thank -You Kelley We will return and no more Hotel Lincoln for us!

Lincoln Park Gem

  • 4 of 5

We booked as 2 couples and enjoyed Kellee's home. It was warm and inviting and well equipped. The location was perfect for us and it was easy to get to transit or catch cabs. The beds were very comfortable but I should mention that one was a queen and one was smaller, a double, so if you are used to King size, it's a bit tight.

Great Place & Easy to work with

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 5 days with our three children (ages 4,5,&6) and could not have been happier!! It was our first time staying at a vrbo and Kellee was fabulous. She had breakfast items waiting for us upon arrival, checked on us throughout the stay and was a delight. The space was fabulous, great for the kids to spread out in and all were happy. I would recommend to anyone who wants to stay in Lincoln Park.

Pretty place but not totally worth it.

  • 3 of 5

So my sons and I booked this place because it was dog friendly and seemed promising. Overall its a Lovely place, has beautiful decor, convenient location near lake, and very friendly host.

But I wish the host said something about the construction next store and the noisy person above who woke us up every morning by walking loudly. Also the apartment wasn't the cleanest for the price tag I paid.

The fire station is right next to this place which wasn't actually a problem because I expected some street noises. But being woken up by the person upstairs and the construction drilling and pounding was not entirely worth the price.

If she had warned us about the noises in the description or emails, this wouldn't have been a problem.

Great Chicago Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Thus unit was for family that was visiting from out of town. The apt had a great Lincoln Park atmosphere and was relaxing after a day of seeing the sights in Chicago. It had plenty of room and was accommodating for kids. It is close to everything and the owner was always a text away if we ever needed anything. I would definitely recommend this listing.
