Even though this is not a full-service hotel (we actually prefer the privacy that comes with this) and there is no on-site dining, we were lacking for nothing and there's an abundance of outstanding dining options in the immediate vicinity. The locations is outstanding and very convenient to many things, including our Chicago family that we come to visit. This will be our "go-to" place for all future visits! Thanks!
My first experience at a B&B and what a experience at that! The dome offers an extremely unique experience, from the architecture to the interior design. Sherryl, the owner, was super down to earth and very friendly. There were plenty of places to relax: under a willow tree, in the patio garden, in the comfy living room etc. We stayed in the Peasant room, which was clean and cozy. The next morning Sherryl whipped up a delicious breakfast buffet for all the guests. What a delight! I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a unique stay and A+ experience.
Stayed at the Flemish house for a week in June. Very nice place, they offer continental breakfast but we opted out. Good size living area, bathroom and closet. The full kitchen was a bit tight, but it was very helpful warming up leftovers and cooking vegetables. This converted house is in a beautiful area, just a block from a bus line, 3 blocks from the subway and grocery store, and a block from restaurants, which is a very happening area. The only downside to this area is that people walk their dogs and do not pick up all their poop. We had to walk the streets with our eyes looking down all the time. Note: this is not the Flemish House’s fault. We were in a rear room and it was very quiet, only some foot steps above us. I will definitely stay here again.
I can't think of a more welcoming B&B than Barrington House. Mary and Marty make you feel like a treasured guest. Their home is exquisitely clean, warm in every way but not at all cluttered or overdone as many B&Bs are. Barrington House has everything you could ask for to make your stay perfect: terrific beds, linens, bath products and sensational breakfasts. You always wish you could stay longer. Highly recommended.
The food was marvelous, room was lovely, everything clean and we enjoyed talkjng with other guests from other parts of the country and out of the country. The staff was very helpful providing information about Chicago sites and events and how to navigate.. I would have liked more info at the front end about how high the steps were in the B&B especially from the parking lot.--I had a lot of sore muscles although other people did not seem to be bothered so it was not a problem for everyone.
This is the first time we stayed at a bed and breakfast place. We are allergic to dust and dust mite. We are also can't tolerate gluten and dairy. This place has hardwood floor throughout. It is very nice, clean and quiet. Mary made very good gluten-free and dairy-free breakfast. We definitely will come back.
My husband and I had a fabulous time at the House of Two Urns. We love B&Bs and Wicker Park is one of our favorite neighborhoods, so staying there made perfect sense! So many restaurants right outside. Comfortable room and great breakfast conversations.
This was an amazing property! We stayed there the week before our daughters wedding. It was everything and more. Wonderful quaint neighborhood w lots of shops and restaurants 2-3 blocks from the L brown line. Apt is large with plenty of windows for natural light. Very clean and comfortable. Kitchen and bathrooms appear newly renovated w wonderful appliances and fully stocked. Nothing was overlooked. We needed to have a service call and the owner was there very promptly and resolved the issue. Also very comfortable beds!! I highly recommend this property!!
