A colorful and charming bedroom with a super comfy (firm) queen sized bed. Your private room includes a desk and extra monitor, and a smart TV with access to Netflix.
The apartment is very homey on the second floor in a building from 1893 set back from the street with a large front yard. The location is a 10 minute walk from the heart of Logan Square with plenty of entertainment and transportation options.
The cats you see in pictures and read about in comments are currently with me in Berlin.

Guest access

You'll have full access to the house, including a modern kitchen, a dining room, a comfy living room that includes a record player and cable, a spacious bathroom with standalone shower and separate tub, and a washer & dryer. There's also a porch and a large yard with a BBQ. If you happen to need a workspace, the desk in your room and the dining room table both work well. There is even an extra monitor.

Interaction with guests

My boyfriend Nick and I host the apartment. There's a good chance you might not see me as I'm currently working in Berlin, but Nick is a wonderful host who can fill you in on the city and urban gardening! He's quite busy and can give you plenty of space/time, but he is also happy to help you get your orientation in Chicago.

Other things to note

Light breakfast items are available upon request (yogurt, toast with butter/jam, fruit, granola, hardboiled eggs, and such). I have a thermal coffee maker and an electric kettle which are available for your use.

Sorry to inform you that the cats in the pictures are currently residing in Berlin - they would love to meet you otherwise!

Heather and Nick's home is wonderful! It's clean, comfortable and the location is great. It's within walking distance or a short Lyft/Uber ride to a lot of fun things. They're great hosts with lots of knowledge of the area. When Nick's recommendation for pizza was Pequod's, I knew we had made the right decision! Checking in and out was issue-free and communication was perfect through the entire process. I will definitely be keeping Heather and Nick in mind when looking for lodging in Chicago again in the future and would recommend to anyone else to do the same!

Had a great stay here...check in was a bit rocky, but think it was just a one-off, Nick and Heather seem like really nice people and they have a lovely home...neighbours in house next door were very nice too, the place is secure...the neighbourhood was cool, this was the first time I was staying in Chicago, and it exactly the kind of area I like to stay in a city

Heather and her boyfriend Nick were wonderful hosts. Heather seems experienced in making people comfortable in her home. The room/place was exactly as advertised in the pictures. They both made me feel welcome and attended to during my stay, and I truly enjoyed talking with them over tea. Being unaccustomed to Chicago winters and relying on the Weather Channel's faulty (higher) temperature predictions for my stay, Heather lent me her personal scarf and hat, which greatly helped me get the most out of my trip. I didn't have to ask for anything before it was offered to me in a chill, non-invasive way. I highly recommend them!

Heather was a gracious host! Her place was perfect for my stay; offering a comfortable space, great and easy location and cute cats. She was super easy to communicate with, responding quickly when I would reach out with questions. Street parking was accessible and easy. I would highly recommend her Airbnb!

Heather did a fantastic job of communicating with us and making sure that our check-in was smooth. Her place was very clean and the listing was very representative of our experience. Though it was a very short stay, we felt comfortable and would book here again!

Heather was really nice and super knowledgeable about the city. She even let us use her Art Institute membership so we didn't both have to pay admission. Her two cats are super sweet and friendly, but the apartment does smell like a cat owners, so if you're not into cats, this isn't for you. She made coffee for us every morning and was willing to get anything else we needed. Logan Square is nice and pretty close to town. Definitely take her suggestion of Cafe Con Leche –– it was the best place we ate during our trip.
