NEAR LINCOLN PARK

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Chicago - Brownstone Near Lincoln Park

4 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom & 1-Car Garage

Exceptional 3500sf Brownstone (sleeps 8-14) located in a Chicago's charming Lincoln Park historical neighborhood. We sold our property at 24 West Chestnut Street. We are now listing our recently acquired Brownstone in Lincoln Park, which is closed for renovations until mid-July, at www.vrbo.com/571144. Please do not submit inquiries through this website - go to www.vrbo.com/571144 if you remain interested in a Chicago-area Brownstone vacation rental.

We’ve previously rented vacation homes in Wisconsin and Nantucket for use by our family and friends and we were disappointed with the availability of large rental homes here in downtown Chicago - although there are plenty of Condos. So, we recently acquired this historic home, which features various sleeping configurations for large multi-generational families on multiple floors, recently updated kitchen and baths, a lower level suite perfect for seniors or an au pair/nanny, rare 3-car indoor garage for parking, nearby parks, shopping and restaurants galore. Similar to our Boston Brownstone available at www.vrbo.com/383697, this is a perfect residence for an executive's temporary assignment to Chicago, a large multi-generational family's long-term visit to Chicago, an executive attending a Master's Program at Loyola, a Chef attending Le Cordon Bleu College or during an actor's role in a Chicago Broadway play or musical or in a Chicago filming.

Located at 2000 North Orleans, the residence is located only a short 1-block stroll east to Chicago's historic Lincoln Park and is about a mile from the famed-North End of Chicago's Magnificent Mile of Michigan Avenue shopping and Restaurants.

In addition, our vacation home is about 1.5 miles to Chicago's infamous intersection of State Street & Rush Avenue, home of the following great gastronmic experiences: Gibson's Steakhouse, Morton's Steakhouse, Tavern on Rush, Hugo's Frog Bar and Fish House, Carmine's Italian, RA Sushi, and Dublin's Irish Pub.

Street Level (Level 1) – (sleeps 4) Entry from 1-car garage off of Orleans Street. Or, enter from the front courtyard lower level entrance directly through an entrance a Bedroom (Two Twin Beds that can be configured as a King Bed, on request) perfect for Seniors, Au Pair or Nanny. This level also includes a Full Bathroom and another Bedroom (King).

Parlor Level (Level 2) - (sleeps 0-4) – Climb the front courtyard stairs to the Main Living Area including Living Room (with Queen Sofa Sleeper), Dining Room (Seats 10), Half Bathroom, and Kitchen and a Deck overlooking the tree terraced Orleans Street (with BBQ).

Third Floor (Level 3) - (sleeps 4-6) – Master Bedroom (King) and Full Bed Sofa Sleeper, Two Full Baths, and Guest Bedroom (King).

Top Floor (Level 4) - small room with fitness equipment and door to Roof Top Deck - enjoy the sun and views South to the panoramic City of Chicago skyline. If you stand on your tippy toes, you might see Lake Michigan to the East...

WARNING: This property is available exclusively through VRBO and HomeAway and from the owner/manager, Tim and Natalie Hyland. Beware of fraudulent listings on Craig's List using some of our home's photos and descriptions, but maybe using a slightly different address.

NOTE: We donate 1% of our total revenues in memory of Moreland Grace Stenstrom to the charitable works of The Peapod Project in Chicago (www.thepeapodproject.org), which benefits Children's Memorial Hospital. We thank you.

We love to travel as empty-nesters and spend time with our extended families and friends. Although we primarily live in Scottsdale, Arizona, we love spending time in Chicago and Boston, so we acquired brownstones in both cities to enjoy ourselves and to share with others.

Tim Hyland purchased this house in 2014

With my parents, sisters, spouses, nieces and nephews and the three of us (my wife and I and our son John), there are 14 of us total. We were unable to find a large short-term rental home in the downtown-Chicago area that could sleep all of us comfortably, so we acquired this perfect property furnished it to do just that - just awaiting our City of Chicago vacation rental license.

Location, location, location. Just blocks from Chicago's historic Lincoln Park and a mile from the North End of the Magnificent Mile shopping district on Michigan Avenue, the location is perfect! You will not be disappointed!

75TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

  • 5 out of 5
We had seven us come from out of town to celebrate my Mom's 75th birthday and this house could not have been more perfect. With 4 bedrooms and 3 pull out sofas we could have had more join us. My mom loved that we visit with each other at anytime unlike if we had stayed in a hotel we would have had to plan when and where to meet. The house is just a couple of short blocks from a grocery store, the Red Line stop (we took it in from Midway instead of taking a taxi, a Catholic Church and some very good restaurants. Since two people drove up to Chicago, having a garage was a big bonus. The location to downtown was perfect. We were just a few minutes from everywhere.

When planning your trip, do keep in mind that this is a three story brownstone. My mom had a wonderful room with her sister on the first floor where the front door and the garage are and she came upstairs to the living/family area when she knew others of us where there. But she never made it to the top level except to see it when we first arrived.

We will be staying there again.

KATHLEEN, ADIRONDACKS, NY

  • 5 out of 5
We are five longtime friends from New York, Pennsylvania, and Idaho meeting in Chicago April 2013..

Chicago has so much to offer with museums, parks, fine restaurants, etc. However, our stay at this exquisitely decorated townhouse that honored its architecture was the highlight. This home is worthy of a spread in Architectural Digest.

No attention to detail was missed, from providing scotch tape in the desk, a shampoo/conditioner/bodywash dispenser in the showers, extremely comfortable well appointed beds, kitchen with knives that a seasoned chef would use. First class quality and design of everything you need . Of course, the all important wine glasses, red, white and burgundy......really....... even WIFI and a printer.

This is not a vacation rental but a home. My favorite space was the kitchen-familyroom with a wall of windows to a spacious deck adorned with pots of flowers.... it is all about the details...

Location... perfect!!!! easy walk to the famed N. Michigan at Water Tower Place and the Hancock bldg. While you were on a quiet residential street, everything was just around the corner, groceries, coffee shops and quality restaurants.

I have traveled extensively for over 30 years. I have rented numerous large vacation houses. I wish all the owners provided the detailed handbook Tim and Natalie left for us. Beside the a listing of TV stations, entertainment system instructions and where to put the trash, there are recommended restaurants (by neighborhood), cab companies and transportation options, things to do with phone numbers and websites... even the where to find the dry cleaner. The departure checklist makes it so much easier...

Tim was a joy to work with; his priority was our being happy. He succeeded. Needless to say we highly recommend this home to anyone who is going to Chicago..

We will be back.... or maybe our next reunion will be at their place in Boston....

Thank you Tim and Natalie,
