About Kate Wainwright

Originally from the south coast of England, I moved to Chicago in 1998 with my husband Ashley. We loved the City on arrival, and partifcularly liked Andersonville/ Edgewater where we bought and renovated an old colonial house in 2002. The neighborhood is fun, convenient and friendly, and we now feel very much at home within a warm and eclectic circle of friends. After many years of global travelling for large corporates, I had baby Teddy in 2007 and decided to stop checking myself in and sit on the other side of the fence. Numerous hotel stays have made me realise that travelling is both fun and tiring, and so Magnolia Studios excels at providing essential comforts. We aim to send you home feeling relaxed and refreshed after sleeping in super comfortable beds, and after being in a vintage building that is private, relaxing and completely renovated. We're on hand to help with any aspect of your stay, or if you know your way around, we just let you enjoy.

Kate Wainwright purchased this studio in 2003

Why Kate Wainwright chose Chicago

We loved the house at first sight, but what really made it for us was the original Chicago Coach House that was part of it. Our architect, somewhat of a Chicago historian told us how few of these are left in Chicago. These are now the studio apartments.

What makes this studio unique

We are 5 minutes from the beach and Lake Michigan, and 30 minutes from downtown on the 'L' train or Lake Shore Drive. Andersonville is well equipped with some great eclectic shops and some the best restaurants and bars in the city.

beautiful and comfortable studio!

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting our son who lives in Rogers Park and decided to use Home Away instead of staying in a hotel. We are so glad we did. This studio was even nicer than the pictures. It was beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable, had a beautiful modern bathroom and everything you could possibly need. There was a keypad to enter the carriage house and another one to enter the room so all we needed to do was enter the codes. When we returned after dark, lights would come on automatically so we could see to enter the codes. The surrounding neighborhood was very nice and quiet. We would definitely stay here again!

Perfect property for a stay in Chicago!

  • 5 of 5

Once in a while, you find a place that is just magical and — for us — Magnolia Studios was just that! The Magnolia Studios property is in a lovely, quiet neighborhood. The grounds are truly lovely — even in February! And the owners are warm, quick to respond and charming.

The studios themselves are wonderfully designed, and comfortable. (I haven’t slept that well in months.) The shower is divine. And there are windows on both sides to let in lots of sun. We took advantage of the garage, and are glad we did.

Like others, I hesitate to praise too highly. Because we intend to book this property every time we come to Chicago. And I’m already looking forward to visiting again!

Perfect location for visiting Cubs fans

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Magnolia Studios! The location was so private, quiet, and peaceful...which was a warm welcome after spending a full day in Wrigleyville.

The Redline is just a five minute walk away, and you can be at Wrigley witching a half hour.

I can not recommend Kate's place more. We will definitely be back, if she will have us ;)

Quiet & HIdden Gem in the Edgewater/NorthSide area of Chicago, close to Lake Michigan

  • 5 of 5

Back in town recently for a charity event & to visit friends. Having lived in Chicago Northside area for over 30 years, I tried to stay here last year but units were booked up solid. A good sign and I resolved to try again on my next trip. After a prompt follow-up from Kate (Owner) I was able to book my dates this time around. What a WONDERFUL place to stay in an extremely convenient location in a residential neighborhood in the City !! It's a short walk to a beautiful Whole Foods, with restaurants and cafes close by. And, with a lovely stroll through the neighborhood, you find yourself at the shores of Lake Michigan. Terrifically designed and laid out with comfort and convenience in mind, MAGNOLIA STUDIOS is perfect for short-term stays or longer, if you find yourself working/relocating to Chicago. Units are in a remodeled and updated Coach House behind the main home & are tucked away for peace and privacy, with a small courtyard and wonderful natural light streaming through. Kate has made every effort to provide whatever you might need while in residence (coffeepods/tea/bottled water provided) and was always available for questions/suggestions. Great climate controls/Sleek and fully equipped kitchenette/great W/D access/Comfortable bed & lovely furnishings/WiFi/High quality Linens,Towels & toiletries/Iron and small board/hairdryer/. All spotlessly clean and tidy, so why stay in a hotel ever again ?! Close to CTA (Bus and L station both) There is parking available on-site, but it's just as easy to forgo the cost of a rental car and travel via the abundant Taxis/Uber cars quickly available in the area. I would also mention this spot would be great for parents visiting nearby Loyola & Northwestern Universities (within 10-15 min) and also for a Winter getaway for Holiday shopping or a concert event weekend. I had a lovely stay here at MAGNOLIA STUDIOS and hope to return soon. My thanks to my wonderful hosts Kate & Ash for making me feel so welcome this trip !!

Magnolia Studios is in Edgewater/ Andersonville which is a lakefront community area on the North Side of the city of Chicago. It is one of Chicago's most historic and yet funky neighborhoods. With some of Chicago's best restaurant and bar experiences nearby. Whether you choose the HopLeaf pub (voted no.1 beer pub in Chicago) or one our favorites, Ras Daschen truly excellent Ethiopian cuisine.

We are 5 minutes from the Beach and the Lake Shore pathway. We are also within very easy access to the city center which can be reached easily by train or car.
