Logan Square is a beautiful neighborhood ideally situated to the north and west of downtown (15 min), with easy access to the expressway and O'Hare Blue LIne train. Our house is right off the boulevard, which is part of the 28 miles of boulevards and parks designed in 1870 to surround the city. The boulevard itself is lined with beautiful historic homes and is a great area to stroll, ride bikes, or just hang out. The neighborhood is very "hot" these days and is filled with some of Chicago's best restaurants and bars including: Longman & Eagle, Lula, Telegraph, The Whistler, and Revolution Brewery, to name a few. Also within walking distance are an organic food co-op, two movie theaters, several coffee shops, a fancy wine shop and full liquor store, a library, a flower shop, a bike shop, several nail salons and boutiques. We also have a great farmers market on Sundays that attracts a big crowd. It moves inside during the winter.
A 5 minutes walk from our home is the Blue LIne, which runs between O'hare (20 min) and the Loop (15 min), where you can walk to the main tourist attractions such as Millenium Park, the Magnificent Mile and the Museum campus. There are also bus lines running east allowing easy access to the Lakefront and the Red Line (for trips to Wrigley Field).
House rulesPlease email first and tell me a little bit about yourself. We do live here and have a child, so we want to know who you are. Your photo should be YOU, not your pet, your child or your favorite food.
We have some gear you can borrow while here, including a pack n' play (portable crib), a counter top high chair (sassy seat), booster car seat (sorry no baby car seat), and toys/books galore.
We use a lockbox for easy access to keys upon arrival. For security reasons I can only send the lockbox code to the person booking.
If you are planning an event that involves more than a few friends (such as a cocktail party, meeting, wedding event, baby shower...you get it), we need to be informed before you book. For large parties and use of the yard, additional fees may apply.
Check in: After 2pm. You are welcome to drop your bags if you arrive in town earlier, or store them here for later pick-up. Check out: 11am (I'm pretty flexible). You are welcome to leave your bags if you have a late departure.
Smoking is only allowed on the back deck and in the yard.
