About Chris and Susan

We are a married couple that has traveled throughout the US extensively, using the vacation rentals as our lodging in most cases. We have always enjoyed staying in a place that wasn't a tiny 300 sq ft hotel room with no character, and we wanted to try a vacation rental with our property. Our hope is that you will walk in and feel instantly welcomed, and comfortable. We live onsite, but there is no real space that you will have to share with us, including the entrance and driveway.

Chris and Susan purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Chris and Susan chose Illinois

The property is located in the late 1800's established village of La Grange, Illinois. It's in a family oriented neighborhood, and we have always enjoyed coming to La Grange for various reasons, and staying to go to lunch, dinner or a movie, just 2 blocks away. We relocated to La Grange in 2013, after completing a complete remodel of our building.

What makes this apartment unique

Our building is completely remodeled, and thoroughly updated - walls, floors, windows, and appliances, and fixtures.

We have had several different experiences in vacation rentals and we we hope that we have covered most of the deficiencies that we have come across. Simple things like cleanliness, comfortable seating, and sleeping for sure, but also providing good cookware and kitchen utensils, not 23 slotted spoons but no functional cork screw....

Please let us know if there are any allergy concerns so that we may prepare the house or kitchen for your stay.

Beautiful apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This place is very comfortable and nicely decorate. The owners have equipped it anticipating your every need. Great location that is within walking distance of grocery stores, restaurants and boutiques in downtown LaGrange. Our family had a lovely stay - highly recommend.

Excellent property and location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in the house. It has the most perfect location around, with a multitude of restaurants and stores walking distance. They have everything you need and more. It's very comfortable. Our toddler son loved the proximity to seeing the trains but I was amazed that you couldn't hear them at night. The beds were wonderful. Also the kitchen was perfect for cooking or making delicious Trader Joe's meals! Another bonus was the small yard to enjoy. The gracious hosts are always available for questions or help which is nice and they really go the extra mile to make sure you are happy. Stay here instead of a hotel in this area and you won't regret it!

Great host and hostess

  • 5 of 5

The property was even better than described. Clean does not go far enough to describe the condition of the property. The kitchen was well equipped. A couple of problems we had over the two weeks were addressed promptly. We wish the double bed were a queen size, but it was as described. We would stay there again in a moment.

Owner's Response: Fred, thank you for the very nice review. We enjoyed having you stay with us - you were great guests! We do have to clarify though, for our marketing purposes, that the bed in the master bedroom is a queen size bed. The only double bed in the apartment is the sofabed in the sunroom.

Felt like home - welcoming, fresh & clean, beautiful, great location

  • 5 of 5

This flat is so beautifully and completely appointed and so expertly maintained, that I felt as if I were borrowing a family member's home. Much care was taken in restoring this Arts & Crafts bungalow style 2-flat. The quarter sawn oak trim and details make a wonderfully warm and welcoming flat; the comfortable furniture and comprehensive appointments do the same. We are already working on a time to return...we hope there will be many returns to this lovely home.

For those not familiar with Chicago, know that this home is located in a handsome, upper middle class suburb that is linked with downtown Chicago by a train. The train station is 3 blocks from the home and the train schedule makes it easy to get to museums, restaurants, the lakefront, etc. I

The house is beautiful and is in excellent condition. There was five of us, my husband and I and our three grown children and we had plenty of space. The kitchen is very nice with all new appliances and all the dishes/utensils you would need. The location is also very good. There are many restaurants in La Grange that are in easy walking distance. Also very convenient to most parts of the Chicago area as it is close to the highways and the train. Chris and Susan were great hosts and very accommodating. Would definitely stay here again.
