About this listing

While there is no door to close the space off, the stairs that lead up to the room have a 180˚ turn, providing guest privacy. Your comfy bed is dressed in fresh sheets, fluffy pillows and snuggly blankets. There is a small closet available for clothing storage.

Interaction with guests
Your hosts are yogis who practice regularly. (We will do our best to keep the meditating to a purr while your are catching your zzzzs.) If you are a kind and honest person you will be in good company.
"Heart of Chicago" has a rich ethnic heritage. Established at the end of the 19th century, it was first inhabited by the Bohemian working class. Since then it has experienced the richness of an Italian population and more recently Hispanic. Our house is right around the corner from a handful of some of the remaining old school Italian restaurants and taquerias can be found on most corners.

Other things to note
Since the Angel's Loft is a finished attic, at times it can be warmer than the rest of the house. A fan is provided for your comfort.
Are you an angel? Since this room is directly located above another bedroom it is imperative that any guest who choose this room be light on their feet, quiet-natured and have a heightened awareness of others. Shoes must be left on the stair landing of the loft prior to entry. Since there is not a door to close off the loft, you will be visited by the kitty cat host at his leisure.
We look forward to hosting you in this most amazing city. While the architecture is incredible and the food is world-reknown, what makes this city unique are its people. Welcome to Chicago.
