The size, space, and extra amenities(breakfast) made for a great stay!

  • 4 of 5

Thank you to Eileen and Ambrose for a wonderful stay. The information booklet helped as we planned for the extra pieces to our stay and the breakfast food was a very nice touch. The house had great space and size for our whole family. And the location was perfect as our smaller children took advantage of the park and baseball diamond next door. Thank you!

Great Place in Elmwood Park

  • 5 of 5

The property was big enough to accomodate the 5 of us, each of us had a bed and there was plenty of room to sit at the table and play cards, two different bathrooms, large kitchen, etc. It was perfect for what we were looking for and it was clean and well maintained. We really enjoyed our stay and I would recommend it to anyone that is looking to stay in the Chicago area.

Immaculate, comfortable, safe, perfect location to the city, nice neighborhood with stores close by.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were very comfortable. Eileen and her husband made everything easy and convenient. There are laundry facilities, games for the kids, comfortable rooms and beds, dining room for our family to eat dinner together, very spacious inside, outside patios with a barbecue, it was the perfect home away from home. We were supplied with delicious breakfast items for a few days, etc... if ever we come to Chicago again, this is where we will always stay.

Thank you for everything Eileen.

The Tenn and Tomlinson families
