About this listing
Great home in fantastic location in Historic District of Oak Park. Super comfy queen bed in large bedroom, full bed in the other room. Private bathroom for guests right off the bedrooms. Must love dogs! Two super friendly energetic pups!
Just two blocks from the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio and a dozen other Frank Lloyd Wright historic homes, this beautiful, historic four square house in world famous Oak Park is a great location for architecture fans or anyone visiting Chicago for business or pleasure. It is a short walk to the train to downtown Chicago, McCormick Place, Wrigley Field, The Untied Center, Cellular One and Soldier Field.
And as for the house itself: You will be very comfortable in a Queen size bed with your own private bathroom. We have a second room available with a double bed if you need more space. The second room shares a bathroom with you and we do not rent it out to other parties while you stay with us. If you need the second room you will need to request us to book you a "Special offer" on the website. You may also use the family room with large screen TV and surround sound, front porch with swing and table and chairs. Free wi-fi and a continental breakfast are included. Our home is in a quiet, safe, friendly family neighborhood. You can walk to restaurants, shopping, movies, parks and buses and trains to downtown Chicago.
One more thing! You must like dogs - we have two very friendly pups!

Interaction with guests
We are not intrusive, sometimes we are not even home. Guests have lots of privacy and house to themselves most of the time. John works in his home office during the day but is separate from the rest of the house.
Beautiful tree lined streets with hundred year old homes that are all unique, interesting, historic and different. Very safe to walk around all times of the day and night. Very clean. Very friendly neighbors.
Buses and trains are within a few blocks walking distance or short bicycle ride. We loan bikes out to guests to ride to the train which is only one mile away. A beautiful short walk past many historic Frank Lloyd Wright homes.
Other things to note
We do have a coffee maker and some cereal and food in the refrigerator, but we do not make breakfast and sometimes if we are not home we cannot guarantee that we will have breakfast foods available, although we will try our best!
We have an extra bedroom available for an extra fee for friends or family members as it shares the bathroom with your room. Please ask about it if you have an additional guest.
WiFi use is limited to regular internet use such as checking email and searching on the internet. Our WiFi does not support video streaming, face-time, or anything else that uses a lot of data. Please use your own data source for those types of operations.
Please use headphones when using technology as a courtesy to other guests and to your hosts.
Make sure you leave the doggie gates closed at all times as our little pup is an escape artist! Be sure to greet the dogs warmly when you arrive and they will love you back. (and stop barking as soon as they realize you are friendly!)
No smoking please!
