The house and Teri are wonderful. We arrived after a 10 hour drive to a clean, warm, well lit home. Teri had contacted us along the way and helped with our trip in to the city. We have stayed at many VRBOs and this was by far the best. We had our 4 children and grandma and we all had...

10 hour drive only to arrive in Chicago at the height of rush hour--ugh!!! I felt so bad for you!! Not sure if you ended up taking my suggestion to cut through the city or if you ended up following your GPS after all. GPS needs to have an option for 'adventurous scenic route' Ha! I'm happy to hear you...

When I come to Chicago with 3 or more people this is the only place I stay. My first experience staying in this townhouse was about 12 years ago. We were astounded something like this existed. The furnishings decorations are wonderful. With the main floor unit you have two floors with lots of space for several folks to stay and...

Still recovering from an awesome 5 days in Chicago. Great home in Wrigleyville and the timing could not have been more exciting!

We just stayed at this beautiful home in Wrigleyville over the weekend, because my brother-in-law ran the Chicago Marathon on 10/9. The house is located in a great location, only about 5-6 miles from the Chicago Loop. We had a rental car, but if you plan to take the train, there are two stations nearby. The neighborhood is very cute....

I'm so happy to hear you enjoyed the place and yes, kudos to Lucy; I'm blessed to have her! Good thing everything is so close to the house as I can bet after running the marathon those legs were 'plumb tuckered out'!!!! Hope he finished with flying colors!!! Look forward to having you all back--maybe 2017 marathon!?! Start planning!! Teri

We first stayed at Chicago Guest House in 2009, when we came back to Chicago to visit our old friends and neighbors we had left the year before on our move to the East Coast. It felt like we were Chicago natives again! The location is perfect (right by Wrigley Field, shops, restaurants, etc.) and is a quick car or...

Unit was clean and well-appointed. Owner is attentive and responsive to inquiries. I would definitely rent here again. The rental made for a comfortable and hassle-free vacation. Very convenient to the Wrigleyville neighborhood.

What does it mean when you don't want to leave? It means the place you're at is amazing and that is the Chicago Guest House experience.

Oh my Lord, I often tell people you may never want to leave the neighborhood, but I never say you may never want to leave at all. How great is that?! Yes, an amazing home, great kitchens and the yard is a slice of paradise in a big city. Love it back there--so peaceful! It's no wonder you stayed 'home'...

Staying in Wrigleyville

Neighbourhood Profile
Wrigleyville
This energetic sub-neighborhood, part of the larger Lakeview neighborhood, has a split personality. In the daytime you can stroll along its streets and enjoy a quiet meal, shop for gifts, walk along the row homes or sit peacefully in Graceland Cemetery. After dark, the neighborhood springs to life. Go bar-hopping along Addison and Sheffield Avenue or join the crowd at the historic Wrigley Field for live music. If there’s a Chicago Cubs baseball game in town, be prepared. Cubs fans can get a little rowdy and may prove to be a bit overwhelming if you're not expecting it.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A fabulous alternative to a hotel. Each apartment is distinctive, warm & inviting--beautifully furnished, fully equipped and guaranteed to exceed your expectations. I promise! We're in Lakeview/ Wrigleyville - approx 4 miles north of the heart of the city. This is one of Chicago’s many amazing, lively and very family friendly neighborhoods; I have no doubt you’ll love it here as much as I do. The neighborhood’s claim to fame is the Southport Avenue Corridor and of course Wrigley Field. ... more   less
