First impressions are important, and our goal is to have you feel at home from the moment you arrive. Your apartment rental, with private entrance and dedicated off-street parking space, is on the first floor of a two-apartment owner-occupied building. The spacious living room and sun-room welcome you with comfortable seating, and room to spread out. A desk located at one end will easily accommodate two people working on laptops, and gives kids a work-space as well. We provide outlet towers in several locations for all your electronics. The fully-equipped kitchen includes a island/breakfast bar, and the dining room comfortably seats six. There are sleeping accommodations for four in the two nicely sized bedrooms.

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
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.
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.
Our family of 6 adults had a great stay at this property during the holidays. The entire home is clean and comfortable and fit our needs perfectly. The kitchen is outfitted with top-of-the line appliances and was great for quick breakfasts or for preparing a complete dinner and included everthing we needed! The bedding and linens were fresh, new and very comfortable. The televisions, blue ray player, printer and wi-fi worked flawlessly and met all our electronic needs! The property is located near quaint shopping and dining. Too bad we didn't have more time to check that area out as we commuted into Chicago both days we were there. Driving into the city was easy and we could have also taken the train vs. driving. We were welcomed by the host with a bottle of wine upon arrival. What's not to like?
Beautifully restored and decorated home in La Grange. My sister, husband, and I spent New Year's Eve in La Grange. The house was very comfortable with a very well-equipped kitchen. The house includes a large dining room, large living room, and a sun room with pocket doors. The master bath has a walk-in shower with a seat and grab bar. We wanted for nothing!
The home is located on a quiet residential street within blocks of the train station and the shops and restaurants of La Grange. We would recommend this home to any of our family, relatives, or friends.
This home is warm and welcoming ! Perfect for our family's Christmas gathering! So beautifully furnished from top to bottom.
Chris and Susan provided everything we needed from a "Packn'Play", and highchair for our grandson, to Christmas decorations. They have honestly thought of everything you could need: plenty of towels,comfortable beds,completely stocked amazing kitchen,nice dining table for our family and even a fireplace to hang our stockings! Our children are still thanking us for finding such a lovely place to be together.
The location couldn't be better. We walked to "Palmer's Restaurant" and the "Blueberry Cafe" on La Grange Road. We visited Brookfield Zoo for their "Holiday Magic." We enjoyed it all! Thank you Chris and Susan for making your home so beautiful and then sharing it with others.
We would do this again in a heartbeat!
Lovely, lovely, lovely. So happy we stayed here for Thanksgiving to be near family and our expectations were exceeded. All the beds have nice mattresses, pillows and linens- great night sleep. Gorgeous updated bathrooms with fluffy towels (and plenty of extras under the sink). Kitchen is top of the line with Vitamix blender and Kitchen Aid mixer and appliances (and some basic food supplies- thanks). Large living room for relaxing including a desk supplied with wireless printer (so handy) and supplies. Great location one block from a charming downtown LaGrange (including a Starbucks one block away) and train to city. Will stay here again. Thank you!
We could go on and on, but suffice it to say that there could not have been anything better about the property (roomy, great finishes and furnishings), its location (a short walk to a great suburban downtown and to the train to get to downtown Chicago), or our landlord (hosts really, who were able and willing to help with anything).
We loved everything about it.
My wife and I and our three kids (4,3, and 0.75) came to Chicago for a relative's wedding, and opted for a house instead of a hotel so that we could...survive.
This apartment/house was a perfect setup! there was a large hall closet we were able to put the pack-n-play in, the older two had a bedroom to themselves, and my wife and I maintained our sanity and had a great time in Chicagoland!
The house is within easy walking distance to a train station if you want to go into downtown, and also a cute little downtown strip of shops and restaurants. But the immediate neighborhood has a quiet suburban feel, not at all unsafe or heavily traffic'd or anything!
The decoration was charming and warm. The kitchen was very well equipped and user friendly. The host was gracious and kind. The kids even had special pillows on their beds that she had purchased to make them feel more welcome.
I would, and certainly hope to come again.
