Beautiful 1897 Victorian home in a safe, quiet, friendly neighborhood. Walking distance to public transportation, schools, shopping. Easy commute to downtown Chicago; blocks away from free shuttle to Northwestern University. Short walk to the lake. OK, the piano needs tuning. Surround yourself with classic photography as you read a book in the twilight hours.

Jerri is really kindly and friendly. The room is very big and beautiful. I really love this room. It's near the CTA Main station, so we can take the subway easily. Jerri and her husband are very nice, I love them very much. Next time if we go to Chicago, we will live here again…
