My friends and I spent the weekend at Paul's house for our fantasy football draft. The house is in walking distance to Wrigley field and lake shore drive. It easily accommodates 6 people. Thanks Paul… More

"Love the location and our hosts. They make all the difference"
I would give this property a 5 point review except for something that neither of our wonderful hosts could help. The elevator in the building was down for an entire day which forced us to climb five f… More

"Girls weekend in Chicago"
We spent last weekend in this condo. Condo has off street parking (small additional fee) but is also just a couple blocks off the red line. We had a group come in from the Midway airport and another… More

Nice resort with lots of amenities. They have "Lodges" and "Presidential's" that you can stay in. If you get one of the lodges try to get on the top (2nd or 3rd) floor, otherwise you will hear the peo… More

"Best cottage in Wonder Lake!"
This is now my third stay at the cottage. I call it my sanctuary, refuge from the city. The cabin is cozy, yet surprisingly larger than what it seems. The large, fenced in yard is perfect for my dog, … More

Honestly, probably the best deal if you're looking for a lake cabin within close proximity to Chicago. Clean, quaint log cabin has a lot of history. Only 1/2 a block from the lake. And Ray is an exc… More

We had a total of 5 people stay here and there was more than enough room for all of us. The condo is about a 20-30 minute train ride to downtown on the Metra which was actually cheaper and faster then… More
We chose this property for the Chicago marathon weekend - so glad we picked here as for marathon spectating it couldn't have been better. In fact, the location was great all round for everything else … More
Thank you Jen for the kind words.
It was a pleasure having you as our guests and we hope to have you back in the future should the need arise.
As you know I am not a decorator but if you could offer some advice, I am always happy to listen.
The funny thing is I am constantly solicited by major publications that want to do photo shoots in this exact apartment because of its style and decor. I had two major publications already do 3 separate photo shoots.
You are 100% correct about the location though, it is THE BEST in the city of Chicago hands down.
Thanks again and all the best.
