Large 1-BR Modern Vintage Gem

About This Rental

Modern/Vintage Feel, Quiet And Comfortable Place Ideal For Value Seekers Looking For A Memorable And Culturally-Diverse Experience In A Quaint Neighborhood That's Also A Convenient Base To Explore Other Fun Sites In Chicago.  

From A Relatively Obscure Neighborhood That Locals Referred To At A Time As Germantown Or Little Europe, Lincoln Square Has Become A Destination Spot For Those Who Want To Shop Its Unique Specialty Stores - Merz Apothercary, Timeless Toys, Gene's Sausage Shop, Book Cellar, To Name A Few. There Are Also Many Restaurants, Taverns, The Famed Old Town School Of Folk Music, Art Fairs And Festivals, Farmer's Market And Many More Activities Catering To Diverse Tastes And All Ages That Have Attracted An Increasing Number Of Visitors. Downtown Chicago Is Seven Miles From Here And Is A 20-minute Ride Via Chicago's 'L' Train (short For The Elevated Tracks It Rides On). The City Is  Also One Of The Bike-Friendliest In The Us And Rental Divvy Bike Riders Are Everywhere Year-Round - Yes, Even In The Winter!

The Property Is Three Blocks Away From The World-Renowned Old Town School Of Folk Music, Where You Can Catch Jazz, Flamenco, Samba, Salsa, Cajun,  Reggae, African And Other Genres Of Folk/World Music In An Intimate Setting. Half-Acre Brewery, Which Has Made A Name For Itself Among Craft Beer Enthusiasts Anywhere, Is A 5-minute Walk And Their Saturday Tours Are A Must For Beer Lovers. Their Daisy Cutter Is My Favorite. 

Right Next Door To The Property Is Grand Tour, A Newly Opened Sports Bar/restaurant Whose Specialty Is Its Offering Of Cuisines From Different Countries Every Month, Not To Mention Its International Weekend Brunch And Extensive Beer Selections. A Walk Around The Corner Is Lutz Continental Cafe And Pastry Shop, A Chicago Institution Famous For Their German Pastry And Cake Specialties. Great Coffee Is Available There In Addition To Starbucks, Julius Meinl, And Beans And Bagels That Are All Within Walking Distance. 

Besides Grand Tour, There Are Countless Other Restaurants In The Area That Cater To All Ethnic Tastes And Affordability - Greek, Polish, Mexican, German, British, Thai, Japanese, Korean, Indian, Italian, Filipino, Peruvian, Lebanese.... You Name It, They're All Around Here. There Are Also Plenty Of Mid- To High-end Dining,  With Goosefoot And Elizabeth In The Latter Category Attracting Rave Reviews From Foodies And Experts, No Small Feat In A City That Has 8,000-plus Restaurants.

If You'd Rather Just Hang Out And Grill In The Backyard, There Are Stores Close By Where You Can Shop For Meats, Produce And Other Grocery Needs. A popular option is to have a picnic at Welles Park, which is just a block away. Owner will  provide a portable grill for this option. My Nephew Who Lives In The Second Floor Of The Building Had Gone To Chef School And Would Also Be Open To Custom-preparing Meals For Indoor Dining.

A lovely place in a great location

Easy access to groceries, restaurants, parks - perfect stay for the two of us and our little dog. If you have a furry friend - this is THE place to stay.

Perfect Location

My husband and I came with our 2 dogs and were hoping to find somewhere that had quick access to a yard and walkable. Virgil's location did just the trick! The balcony was so lovely to sit on in the morning with coffee and the neighborhood was fantastic (the mail woman even gave both dogs treats). The apartment had everything you would need and was easy to feel comfortable there.

Chicago Gem

Loved our stay at this property. Full of character it is in a very quiet neighborhood with two parks and a trail along the Chicago river close by. Aldi supermarket is 2 minutes walk away and we found plenty of restaurants in the area that delivered. Virgil was easy to work with and prompt to respond to my questions. I would definitely stay at this property again.

Nice Place

This is an upstairs apartment in a very convenient location. Grocery store 300' The park is one block away, cafe and coffee shops within walking distance. The building is pretty much a time capsule from the early 20th century. It's clean and well kept. If your giving a thought to staying here, do it. I will stay again. -Steve-
