Absolutely Adorable Home

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our girls weekend. The 3 of us found the home to be so clean, comfortable and the location was fantastic. We were able to drive 40 minutes down to Navy Pier on a busy Saturday and 20 minutes the opposite way to TInely Park for a Luke Bryan concert. We enjoyed the Calumet Bakery around the corner every monrning - if you are in this area you have to stop there. Thank you to the owners for having your property on Home Away!

We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this place. We would definitely book again!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean and fully stocked with everything we needed. Cindy and John are wonderful hosts. They were very accommodating. I really enjoyed conversating with both of them. They are close by if you need them but they also give you complete privacy. We travel a lot and this booking has been by far one of the best experiences we have ever had. The home is close to grocery stores, restaurants, a shopping mall, parks, and a library. It also is easy to get in and out of Chicago and Northwest Indiana. Our stay was a solid 5 stars!

Clean, pleasant, fully stocked with supplies and everything worked well. Only negative is some traffic and train noise at night, which woke us up at times.
