The space

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!

Guest access

Bedrooms, private bathroom, kitchen, living room, wifi, TV room in basement, backyard, front porch, dining room, bicycles.

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.

The neighbourhood

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.

Getting around

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.

The house is extremely cozy and well decorated. The two dogs are very friendly as well. You get a lot of privacy with your own bathroom and floor.

Love this place! Great house in a great neighborhood! We had a blast! The bed is really comfy and the bedroom overlooks the large backyard and garden. The dogs are super sweet. Easy walk to Frank Llyod Wrights studio and Hemingways birthplace. Plenty to do just in Oak Park.

The Fricks were wonderful hosts and they had a beautiful home, friendly dogs, and the listing was exactly as described. They were able to quickly accommodate our stay despite a last minute booking and were very friendly with hotel level preparation. Would highly reccomend!

Phyllis and John were wonderful hosts. The house is in a lovely residential neighbourhood with very secure drive way parking. Only a short walk to the Frank Lloyd Wright Home & Studio. It took us about 20 minutes to walk to the train to get to downtown - however there were also bikes available if you prefer not to walk. The room was clean and bed very comfortable. The hosts also had lots of suggestions for places to eat and things to do. An added bonus was the two lovely dogs. I would definitely recommend staying here while visiting Chicago.

We very much enjoyed our stay! The location was close enough to our destinations and Phyllis and John's home was rather inviting with a beautiful and comfortable set-up. A+!
