Private bedroom with small office and full bath in stunning timber loft. Located on a quiet street in the burgeoning West Loop neighborhood, 2 miles from downtown and Lakefront, steps from the city's finest dining, Greektown, and the United Center.

The space

Enjoy a unique urban experience in this stunning artist-owned converted timber loft. The huge windows, exposed brick and open kitchen give this large and unique space a true urban feel. Enjoy the burgeoning West Loop neighborhood, with its boutiques, award-winning restaurants and easy access to the Lakefront, museums and beautiful Millennium Park. Plentiful street parking, a quiet and safe environment and a spacious bedroom and office make this the ideal place to relax, work and enjoy all Chicago has to offer.

Guest access

Your private space includes a spacious bedroom with a queen bed and office space. The bedroom contains a flat screen TV with Xfinity cable, ample dresser and closet space and access to high-speed internet throughout. A lovely garden, complete with a gas grill, patio and seating, off the bedroom can be used in warmer months. Guests have their own private full-bath, use of a full kitchen (with juicer, Nespresso machine) and free Divvy bike rental. No need to bring a hair dryer—the guest bath has one just for you. The owner/artist also lives in the space, but there is plenty of room to share!

Interaction with guests

I live full time at the loft, so any questions or problems can be quickly addressed. Your privacy will be respected but feel free to reach out for suggestions or ideas for enjoying Chicago. I am a lifelong Chicago resident who loves this city!

Other things to note

If you are looking for a clean, bright private space in a light and art-filled loft, like to explore or simply want some quiet time to get away, this is the place for you.

Dian was the perfect host. We felt welcome at her fantastic apartment as soon as we arrived. She was so happy to help and, if she wasn't home, always answered our text questions straight away. Her place is really straightforward to find by direct train from the airport, and the neighbourhood was safe and had lots of eating options. It was a breeze to get to town by bus or train. The room we stayed in was cosy with a comfy bed and plenty of room for our stuff. Dian kindly offered to share her living space with us too (though usually we were too busy seeing the city to spend much time in it.) And she always put a little treat out for breakfast for us - usually doughnuts, which were delicious. Coffee was always on offer too. We would definitely stay again on our next visit. Thanks Dian!

Dian room is better than it looks in the pictures, it is roomy, bright and very comfortable bed. Her apartment is spotless and is located in very quite and nice neighborhood. I travelled to Chicago for work and the room is just perfect for a business traveler, it has a small office for work and about 15-20 min nice walk to downtown and merchandise mart, I would definitely stay there again on my next trip to Chicago.

Dian and her home are the quintessential Airbnb experience! The home is curated for beauty, peace and comfort and Dian is warm and engaging. You have total privacy with a separate entrance and bathroom. Yet a shared experience in the kitchen and living room of this stunning loft home. I will be coming back for certain.

Dian is absolutely wonderful! She was communicative and flexible with us for our check-in, her loft is absolutely stunning and we enjoyed the art work in every corner. We also enjoyed the little touches of snacks in our room (after a long day at a music festival, we were extremely thankful for that) and fresh coffee each morning. We also enjoyed walking to nearby restaurants each morning for breakfast, there are so many unique spots to explore. We felt right at home while visiting Chicago and will certainly stay with Dian again.

Dian was a wonderful host. She was available if we needed her but otherwise very unobtrusive. She offered us a number of good suggestions for places to eat and things to do. For accommodations, we felt like we had our own private home in what was formerly a warehouse, which is now a beautiful space, tastefully decorated, spacious and clean. Every morning we would find coffee, pastries and fruit in the kitchen and when we returned on a couple of the evenings, to our surprise, we even found pistachios and a bowl of popcorn left out!

Dian was a very welcoming host. The place itself was great. Location was perfect. Parking was easily accessible on the street. We could not have picked a better spot for our Summer trip to Chicago.

Dian is a great host. She took care of us and provided relevant advices soon after we booked her room. The appartment is awesome, quiet and comfortable. It is also very well located to reach Dowtown Chicago. Dian was available at anytime, and our stay was perfect.

I am an artist who loves to travel all over the world. Several times a year I look for that perfect house in a beautiful location and settle in for awhile to get a feel for the people and the culture. My hobbies are yoga, cycling and horses. I have lived in Chicago my entire life…
