Magnolia Studios was a find for me and I made sure to share it with my Chicago relatives. My mother and I occupied both studio one and two. Tucked between the main house and an alley, it's pretty quiet for the urban location. Each unit is equipped with a kitchenette, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and basic kitchen ware. Along with...

Private and comfortable apartment that was appointed with everything we needed through the Christmas weekend. Great neighborhood, with everything necessary close by. There was adequate parking and easy access to Lakeshore Drive.

Magical little spot behind a gracious older house - up to date amenities and thoughtful touches - chocolates - notepaper...nice neighbourhood - close to coffee shops and restaurants - private - the owners are lovely - we look forward to going back!

We stayed in the suite for 3 nights. It was perfect for our family of four. Kate was a kind host. She was accommodating in every way. We were able to access the landing area where we could grab whatever we need for our girls. We used a blow up bed and floor mat with sleeping bags at no extra...

I stayed at Magnolia Studios for four days because of all the glowing reviews on Tripadvisor. But I'm sorry to say the experience didn't live up to those reviews. I never saw the owner. I phoned when I arrived and then emailed, and heard back the next day. So as far as questions about the property, you're on your own....

Dear Ms. Bunce I am so sorry that your stay was unsuccessful, and wish we'd had a chance to discuss. Talking is usually best and I did knock on your door several times during your stay. I didn't get a response though, and unfortunately your refusal to answer the door at the end of your stay made it impossible to...

This is a wonderful property! Quiet & beautiful street just blocks from everything we need. We stayed 3 nights and walked to breakfast(Nookies), the Bryn Mawr train station just about 5 minute walk. We took advantage of the garage and our drive downtown the "LOOP" took about 15 minutes(no traffic) with easy access to the main thoroughfares. We used to...

A nice quiet, clean and friendly place to stay in the northern suburb of Chicago. A twenty minute taxi ride to the centre of the city and close to good restaurants and food stores. Hollywood Beach is just five minutes away with good clean sands and freshwater Lake Michigan to swim in.

My hubby and I had a great little get away to Chicago to see friends and celebrate his birthday; we really enjoyed our stay at Magnolia Studios! The property is storybook like in its charm, our studio was much more cozy and well appointed than any of the hotels we had considered. Kate, the owner, was a pleasure to work...

My stay at Magnolia Studios was wonderful. Kate, the owner, was so very pleasant...she responded quickly to any requests or questions and went out of her way to make sure my stay was worry free. Rooms are beautiful and spotlessly clean. I plan on staying at Magnolia Studios any time I'm in Chicago.

Booked this B&B after seeing nice reviews here. We are coming into Chicago from 5 hours away for a 1 night concert. Given the great lack of lodging near the Rogers Park/Edgewood area, I booked here. Was now told 3 weeks after booking by the owner that "we don’t do single Friday or Saturday nights." No where is this listed...

Dear Roberta So sorry that we weren't able to accommodate your single Friday night request and so you weren't able to stay with us. As discussed, we don't have the flexibility of a chain hotel and our website says that we can't accommodate single Friday or Saturday nights except in cases of sudden cancellation. I think your choice of the...
