About The Owner

I am a full time real estate agent. I love to travel also, run, read, ski, and spend time with my six kids aged from 24-7. I really love meeting new people, and I love my city (although I am a transplant from the Detroit area). We are all very active, and I moved to the North side about three years ago. My oldest son graduated from Albion in Michigan, and studied in Glasgow Scotland for one year. My second son is getting ready to go off to college soon. My two middle children are adopted from Ukraine, and they are both avid skiers and skaters. I have seven year old twins who I think will be the musicians of the family. I am a musician, and came here to go to Columbia college for music. My fiancee is from Virginia and has three kids of his own, so we are a large loud family, but it's a whole lot of fun.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Chicago

I lived here for six years, and when we moved I just couldn't let it go because I really thought I would want to come back one day. Renting was tough because it was a large house and somewhat overwhelming to most. My neighbor has had a B&B across the street for over three years, and it was really his success that gave me the idea to give the B&B thing a try.

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with the grand staircase when you walk in. The large open rooms, and the sheer size of this house. I had so many great parties here when I was living in the home. It is really a wonderful house to entertain in. In the summer I love the terrace for dining, and soon we hope to have a second patio on the West side of the home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Don was so great. Very laid back and pleasant to talk to. They were quite busy during their stay but we communicated frequently. He said that everything was to his liking, and the family had a wonderful time here in Chicago.

Owner's Response: In all my years of hosting, I don't think I have had a guest quite like this one. The moment she walked in, she began talking to my staff in a very rude disrespectful way. She claimed it "smelled". Then, she demanded that I drop what I was doing and come to meet her immediately. My cleaning people had just left, the house was clean. I was very agitated and demanded that she leave. She chose to stay, because she and her 20 guests I am sure could not find anywhere else to go with their dog. When she left she scratched every square inch of my hard wood floors with her dog cage, which was about 3,500 worth of damage.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We all loved the house! I brought my family in to celebrate my daughter graduating from college, and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Lots of space for everyone! Also, very nice for the dogs because it was a fenced yard. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect for our big group

  • 5 of 5

This house is really quite beautiful and unique. We had a big group of 16 women and there was plenty of space and bathrooms (though could have used more mirrors, especially full length). My favorite thing was the huge rooms downstairs that were big enough for all of us to hang out at one time. It was perhaps a little farther from downtown than we would have liked, but still a very reasonable uber (or public transportation that was also more time than we wanted to commit on a quick weekend getaway). I will say, I sent a message a couple days before our trip and did not receive a response within 24 hours. Then sent another message which did get a timely response but never answered a question asked in the first message. Overall, we had a very positive experience in a beautiful home. Thank you!
