Charming 2 Bedroom In Lincoln Park

Bedrooms 2
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


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

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! :)

Great location - very clean apartment!

  • 4 of 5

As other have said, the location couldn't be much better. Shops and the Brown Line are just down the street. The apartment is very clean and tidy. We had everything we needed for our short stay. The 3 flights of stairs up are very narrow/steep and should be put in the description as a precaution. The WiFi is slow and TV not great (couldn't watch the UM game). However for the price & location it was great. If you're looking for safe, clean, nice, then this is the perfect place.

Great neighborhood and the property is an easy two block walk to a Brown line station. We bought CTA passes @ Midway and used them for downtown, Oak Park, and our flight home from O'Hare. Great value and convenience, and having public transport so close to this rental is a major plus.

The unit itself was clean and basic. Not for those who can't handle using three flights of steep, winding stairs which are not fully railed. Even the fit might have difficulty if they are traveling with heavy/bulky luggage; we were not.

The owner could help renters by leaving more info about the property (does that free-standing dishwasher actually work and, if so, how, e.g.) as well as tips re near by grocery and drug stores, restaurants, etc. The neighborhood is replete with all of these.

Some attention to minor upgrades would also help. E.g., plenty of toilet paper but only one box of tissues; towel bar absent from back of bath door, and living uninstalled in a closet; shortage of waste baskets.

WIFI was very slow at times.

But, overall, we believe that we got good value for our money over the five nights we stayed. Location certainly facilitated the four of us really getting a lot out of our visit to CHI.

Location, location, location

  • 4 of 5

If your main criteria for a Chicago stay are a location that is safe and very well-located to explore the City at a fair price, this may be the rental for you. Excellent access to the Brown El line with easy transfers to other routes. The Red line is also walkable. Home is located on a quiet and well-kept street in the upscale Lincoln Park section. Another plus is the apartment's layout: two bedrooms and bath to the rear so that an early riser or late TV watcher could use the living room and kitchen without disturbing sleepers. Ample space for the four of us.

Do not consider unless you are fairly fit: the apartment is on the third floor up a long, winding, and at times rail-less stairway. If you are bringing along bulky luggage, this could be a problem too.

We found the WIFI to be quite slow. Kitchen is well-stocked with utensils, but dishwasher is not installed and no instructions are left as to a sink hook-up. In general, the Owner could do a better job of leaving info for guests re the apartment's operation as well as local restaurants, grocery and drug stores, e.g. Other guest basics need some work too: lots of toilet paper but no tissues; towel bar missing from back of bathroom door (it's in a closet, so would be an easy re-install); some might find the one key per party to be a nuisance as well.

Bottom line is that we loved our visit to Chicago, and would not hesitate to return, but would shop other VRBO sites before concluding that this one is the best that we could do.
