The space

Our home located in the Forest Park a neighborhood of Chicago. It is a beautiful and well kept house. Just 2 blocks S. of downtown Forest Park, where you will find restaurants, shops, ice cream, and much more. Walk to downtown Oak Park- just 1.5 miles - and visit the city within minutes of getting on the blue line or green line metra trains. All within walking distance. Just 3 blocks from the blue line. This is a beautfiul and safe area. You will love it! Rooms are rented to students from all over the world attending Kaplan and Intrax Language schools. Guest rooms are also rented to AirBnB Guests.

All rooms are provided with new beds (this room has a twin bed), fresh bedding, air conditioned (central), fresh towels and self serve breakfast. My Homestay is fantastic.

We have three dogs that are sweet and wonderful. If you are allergic this is not the place for you. Animals lovers preferred. :)

Response from Denise:
