This warm, sunny 4 bedroom, two-story farmhouse is nestled in unique, diverse Evanston, Illinois, just next door to Chicago and home to Northwestern University and the shores of Lake Michigan.

The space

Remodeled in 2008, our home boasts an open floor plan and hardwood floors. Pick your favorite outdoor spot with front porch with swing, screened back porch, and spacious yard with patio and large picnic table. During the winter, cozy near our wood-burning stove that capably heats the whole first floor. Newer kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel appliances. Exposed brick, skylight, and built-in bench add to the home’s welcome. The basement is partially finished with a charming media room, ping-pong parlor, and storage space.

Guest access

We also have a trampoline in the backyard. Access and use of the trampoline is limited to proper oversight and strict parental approval. By using the trampoline, Airbnb renters agree to adhere to the following guidelines:
-- Allow only one person on the trampoline at a time.
-- Do not attempt or allow somersaults.
-- No child under six years of age can use the trampoline.
-- Always supervise children who use a trampoline.

Other things to note

We have two full baths -- the main floor bath has a great small clawfoot tub off the kitchen and main room that is great with kids under five. Our basement is also a great play room full of toys.

A cozy house that feels like home! Ideal for one or two families with young children. We especially appreciated the open kitchen/living area, well-stocked pantry, play area for children, and gorgeous backyard. The house is in a hidden and quiet neighborhood yet minutes from the best shops and restaurants of Evanston. Although walkable to town, we found it best to have a car. Street parking was almost always open right in front of the house. The hosts are incredibly flexible and accommodating.

We loved our stay in Evanston at Kirby's home. The home is extremely homey and relaxing. We enjoyed cooking in the spacious kitchen, relaxing in the family room and sitting by the fire pit out back. We took many walks to town and along the beautiful lake. We definitely hope to return!

Kirby's family provided us complete access to the whole house, thus providing a very warm and pleasant stay. The house was equipped with anything a family with kids needs, so this was very helpful. They also left us with some groceries so we could get a rest as soon as we arrived. Their neighbors checked us in and out and were super kind.

We absolutely adored our stay in this charming house. It's as wonderful and homey as the pictures suggest. My kids loved the yard, the porch, the basement with the pingpong table. It was a perfect size for our family of 4 but would also be wonderful for a slightly larger group. The neighborhood was quiet and also great to explore. It was a good vantage point for our events on the North Shore of Chicago.
