Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

This apartment is about both location and comfort. It's located in Chicago's top rated Lincoln Park, near some of the greatest shopping and dining in the city (foodies paradise!). We're located on a quiet, tree lined street away from the bustle but still less than a block walk to everything you need. If you're here in the summer months, the beach is just a 10 minute walk east. The Armitage "EL" is around the corner and can easily take you to any part of the city- whether you're heading up to Wrigley for a Cubs game or going down town to Millennium Park, any destination is quickly within reach.

The apartment itself is on the third floor of a walk-up and has two large bedrooms, one with a king size bed, the other with a full. Both are super comfortable! If you decide to make a meal instead of eating out, a full kitchen is stocked with kitchenware. The living space is welcoming and cozy, with a comfy couch, TV, and pub table. We also have wifi access. If you're staying longer with us and would like to do laundry, we have a washer and dryer in the unit (with detergent of course).

This apartment is perfect for weekend getaways, long-term stays, family get-together's, holiday vacations, summer visits, and much more. I can't say enough good things about this apartment! Experience Lincoln Park and Chicago like a true resident!

About Julie Fritzshall

Hi Travelers! I am in my mid 20's, living in Chicago and absolutely love it here! I was born and raised in the suburbs but moved to the city shortly after graduating college. I don't foresee myself ever leaving :) My bother owns the property and I manage it.

Julie Fritzshall purchased this apartment in 2013

Charmingly perfect in many ways

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over the Thanksgiving break, eating Thanksgiving dinner here - we had a good kitchen to use! The location is so convenient to the Armitage shopping and eating district, which we enjoyed immensely. It is convenient to catch the 'T', and downtown is a short couple of stops away. The owner , Julie, was helpful while we were there, answering questions by email. Everything about the two bedroom apartment was easy to use and comfortable. It is on the 3rd floor, with stairs to climb to get there.

Stairs suck. Bare minimum there...

  • 2 of 5

Besides a great location and a nice manager everything thing else was clearly overlooked and un addressed. I could not escape the "B-O" smell in the main room. The stairs were a factor and could be dangerous for older people...

I would not stay at this location as is again. Chicago was great besides that.

Wonderful Chicago Location

  • 4 of 5

If I could give the location of a property 10 stars, I definitely would for this location. It is easy to find, lots of shops and restaurants a block or two north, south and east of the home. More shopping less than a half mile east. Easy to rent bikes and hit the shore. Catching the "L" is quick and easy, too. Walking everywhere is safe and easy.

The accommodations are great. Very clean and well stocked. Beds are comfortable.

Just a couple things to note. Some reviews talked about the stairs. They are steep, narrow and twisty, but they are inside the property (no weather issues), well lit and there is a railing the entire way.

With the train station just a block and a half away, you can still hear it pretty easily overnight. If you're a light sleeper, this might cause some issues for you. Bring your white noise!

The cable package through Xfinity is very limited. It is the most basic package and it's hard to find channels. The major networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) are accessible, but most other channels are oldies, shopping or other languages. There isn't any other player connected (DVD player, etc.) though an HDMI cable is provided.

The internet is very slow, too, and doesn't reach very far (I think). My son was able to stream some shows on the iPad but it was difficult to stream anything else when more than one device was connected--including phones and laptops. Not sure if you brought your own Roku, etc. if you'd be able to stream shows very well or not.

Overall, the location of this property offsets the cable and internet issues. It's a fabulous property in a great neighborhood!

Great location and lovely hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this place in Lincoln Park. Beautiful neighborhood, right by the train, and a perfect spot if you plan to spend most of your time out and about in Chicago. We loved our stay and Julie was very communicative and responsive and personable. I'd definitely recommend to others!

Wonderful Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this clean and comfortable property. The neighborhood is upscale and quiet. The apartment is close to shops, restaurants along with being close to the West Armitage “L”. We definitely recommend staying here! :)
