Excellent location two blocks from Wrigley field and many nearby restaurants and shops make this a choice area. We stayed on 2d floor apartment with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths - wonderful property, parking, full kitchen, W/D and garage parking make this a great choice. The property hosts are most gracious.

I was in town for a last minute surgery unfortunately however I was extremely lucky finding this place. It was perfect and so well equipped with everything I needed for as a comfortable recovery as possible. In fact even better than my my current living situation! The location is perfect and so was the stay. Great communication with the owners and I didn't need to request any specific items as everything you would need is already provided. I really enjoyed having such a comfortable space and hope to visit again next time (minus the surgery)!

My extended family (10 of us) stayed at the Chicago Guest House for our trip to Wrigleyville to watch our home team play the Cubs. What a fabulous house! We stayed in the bottom 2 units and we had MORE than enough room. The house was extremely clean!!! Plenty of towels were provided, as well as paper products, shampoo, conditioner, etc. Teri provided detailed arrival instructions in addition to fun things to do while in town. The house is about a 5-minute walk to Wrigley Field. So convenient! My family all said we would want to stay here again on any return trips to Chicago. Thanks, Teri!

What a lovely home! Our family loved this spacious house. It was clean, the furnishings were beautiful the art work amazing! Beds were comfy. The kitchen had everything you could imagine. It snowed and they kept the steps and walkways clear. Cost to everything!

We LOVED Teri's place. We were there for Christmas and it was beautifully decorated for the holidays throughout. The condo is in a classic Chicago 3-flat on the 2nd floor. The three bedrooms are cozy and were plenty big enough for our family of 5 (mom, dad, and three teenagers). The two bathrooms were updated and sparkling clean. Teri has thought of everything--from coffee and tea, to TONS of fluffy towels, to well-stocked body wash, shampoo, and conditioner. She even left us a sweet little gift of Christmas cookies upon our arrival. The location was great--just a block off of Southport, which has tons of shopping, restaurants, and entertaining. There is also a huge Jewel just around the corner--an easy 5-minute walk. Perfect when you have a late arrival and want to have breakfast food for the morning! There is also a beautiful backyard--that we, unfortunately, didn't get to use because of the weather. We will be back soon, though!

Kirsten, First I want to say--you ROCK! :o) Couldn't have asked for anything more. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for posting such an amazing review; it means the world to me. I don't want anyone to have an excuse for not coming to Chicago and spending the holiday. I do my best to make it as festive as I can during this time of year. Though Chicago is not the 'Choice Destination for Winter Travelers' Haha, there is no reason why it shouldn't be. Chicago is A-MA-ZING all year long! Now...... maybe I can make it a bit more tolerably by warming up that back yard LOL. I'll put it on the 'to do' list for 2020! I look forward to you coming back again soon. Teri

My family of 5 adults and two children spent Thanksgiving 2018 at Chicago Guest House in the first floor unit at 1216 West Newport ave. This is a beautiful, safe neighborhood that is walking distance to great restaurants, bars, and shopping. The home was spacious and perfect for our needs. Terri had EVERYTHING you could ever need to cook and serve Thanksgiving dinner at a beautiful dining room table. The eat-in kitchen with a table and breakfast bar was a perfect gathering place for our informal meals. There is a living room upstairs and a family room in the lower level that allowed us to spread out. The only thing my kids needed to bring for their 2 1/2 year old and 10 month old was a stroller- Terri had a crib, porta crib, high chair, booster seat and baby gates!! On top of all that, the place comes with a garage spot and permit parking on the street.

Oh my goodness---I have a stroller too!!!! haha! It was great to meet you and I'm so happy you enjoyed the place. I know it wasn't your first choice, but I knew it would be the perfect fit for you---glad I was right! The Lakewood Avenue property is in the same wonderful neighborhood, but it's the Guest House on Newport that I feel is the most family friendly when you have small children. Again, I'm glad it worked out so well for you! Remember what I said--- I'd love to have you back this winter whether it be here or the smaller Henderson St property. Look forward to hearing from you soon! Teri

Our group of 7 stayed at this guest house over the Chicago Marathon weekend and we are soooo happy we found it! Not only is it located in a safe, beautiful neighborhood only steps from restaurants and shops, it's also an absolutely gorgeous house with all the amenities we needed. There was plenty of space for everyone, modern furnishings, comfy beds, and even a parking spot! We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay - thank you Teri for such an amazing experience, we'll definitely be back!

This house is a true gem! Searching for a reasonably priced house to accommodate 7 adults during the weekend of the Chicago Marathon was a tall order, but this house delivered on all fronts! With plenty of beds/bedrooms, a large living area and kitchen, two full baths, and a great outdoor space in a wonderful neighborhood, we couldn’t have asked for a better stay. The house was located close to shopping, restaurants, and bars, and we enjoyed the walkability to so many great options. The tree lined street was picturesque Chicago! If we are ever back in Chicago, this house will be the first we check.

This is my second time staying with Teri’s Chicago Guesthouse properties— My second time organizing 7 couples to share a house in Wrigleyville for a baseball long weekend. I can’t say enough about how easy Teri makes it. From the initial inquiry regarding availability to the gracious hospitality that is apparent in the rental home, Teri ensures your questions are answered and your concerns are laid to rest. The upscale neighborhood within 2 blocks is a quiet break from the Wrigleyville baseball scene 4 blocks in the opposite direction. Great to have all those fun options so close or to just sit on the patio and relax! Thank you CGH Marie

Thank you Marie! It IS such a great neighborhood---Southport Corridor vs Wrigleyville baseball scene. The two areas couldn't be more different and you're perfectly situated right in the middle! Doesn't get any better than that! So happy you enjoyed your stay and I look forward to having you all back soon! Teri

This apartment was absolutely wonderful. Had everything we needed, was close to shops, restaurants and things to do. Walking distance to Wrigley Field which we visited. Gorgeous little back patio where we spent most of our time if we were here. Was our own little home away from home. Will definitely be coming back.
