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 Magnolia Glen

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.

The owner, Kate is a wonderful person. I had the joy of meeting her and her children. The accommodations were perfect for us. A kitchen, a beautiful bathroom with room to put all your essentials. The bed was very comfortable and lighting is great. I will definetly stay here again when we come to Chicago. It was the best rental we’ve stayed in. A gem.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

I was really happy with both the room and my host. The room is cozy and has everything you could possibly want. The location is great, with a metro stop 5 minutes away on foot and a Whole Foods 15 minutes away. Kate was wonderful and made me feel perfectly at home. She made sure I felt taken care of without imposing on me in the slightest. Highly recommend this gem.

Everything was perfect. Could not have been more convenient. Squeaky clean

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect, clean and cozy. Great location for going back and forth to Downtown Chicago and Evanston. And Kate, the owner, was really gracious. I’ll stay here again, for sure.

Great place to stay in Chicago

  • 5 of 5

Wow! The Magnolia Studios are amazing! Located in a great neighborhood that allows an easy commute to downtown. The room is very clean and nice just as the pictures show. They stocked the room with everything you could think of. So nice to have a relaxing place to stay after a busy day in the city. The only way to stay in Chicago! Will definitely be back!

Loved this adorable carriage house!

  • 5 of 5

The neighborhood was bustling and hip, the hosts considerate and caring, and the studio was thoughtfullly outfitted to make our 4 night stay carefree. The el station is just a few blocks away, conveniently whisking us in to Chicago and up to Evanston. It would be easy to stay longer, and we look forward to future visits!

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!

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.
