Perfect for our family of 12

  • 5 of 5

The 4 bedrooms with queen beds were great for all the adults in our party and the lower level worked great for the 4 grandchildren ages 7 - 14. Eileen was kind enough to include 2 roll away beds to go with the full pull out couch in the lower level for the kids. Everything was very clean and the stocked fridge with breakfast items was an extra nice touch. Kitchen had all the utensils, etc that we needed for cooking & the extra kitchen downstairs came in handy with the extra fridge. There were plenty of pillows, towels & blankets for our stay. The roku remote worked for only 1 TV so we had it setup for the kids downstairs - we did not miss watching TV upstairs. We found that the walk to the Metra took about 20 minutes, not 10. But the neighborhood was very nice to walk in back & forth to the train. We also loved the children's park & ball diamond right next door. We had plenty of parking on the street for our 3 vehicles the weekend July 28th - 31st. We would definitely stay again or recommend to a friend.

Cozy stay

  • 4 of 5

Our experience was great. The property was clean, cozy and spacious. The kitchen was stocked with all the utensils and dishes you could need. The grill was super clean and the breakfast food was just the right amount. All of the full size beds were super comfy. Both bathrooms were stocked with plenty of towels. Coin laundry facilities were conveniently located in the lower level of the property. If you like the character squeaky floors in an old house has, then you will love this property. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. We enjoyed our stay.

Great place to stay, clean, comfortable and roomy.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 days for a family reunion. My sister and her family stayed up stairs. This house was fabulous. The owner stopped by the morning after we arrived to check that everything was OK. The house is equipped with everything you may need and more- without being the least bit cluttered. It was spotlessly clean and good quality towel etc. Even had provisions for breakfast were waiting for us. It is literally next to a playground in a park. You can see the whole playground from the kitchen and dining room windows. The deck and back yard are great, plenty of space and seating and has a gas grill.

Would definitely recommend staying at this home. We will book it again.

This is a very nice home for your family to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The home worked well for our family. There were eight of us and we had plenty of room, towels, and supplies of all kinds. The kitchen has everything we needed. The home was in a great location for us, close to the airport and the Rosemont area. The owners are wonderful and want to make sure you have everything you need for s perfect stay! Our family would recommend this property to your family.

Wonderful for our large group

  • 5 of 5

Eileen and Ambrose are the best! My group of 9 slept here comfortably, and it was just a lovely place to stay. The park right next the house was a big hit with the kids in our group, and there were so many shops and restaurants to get to in walking distance. You could take a 10-15 minute walk and get to the Metra train station to get to downtown Chicago in about 25 minutes. The guest services book is a tremendous help, and groups with kids, this place is for you! There is everything you need for little ones, such as high chairs, pack and plays, and for my older kids there was board games and outdoor toys. I hope to return because this place is beyond amazing.
