This is my fav place & best $$ deal to stay in Chicago! I called last minute and lucked out to get the Leather room & the Disney room. The B&B is awesome. The super nice & helpful owners live in the bldg as well & cooked an awesome breakfast which they also sit and ate with the guests. There is free parking very nearby. You are right above the 2 bear clubs so the convenience is awesome if you are into that while the B&B is surprisingly quiet and completely separate from the clubs. You can take the White-line bus to Boystown which is only a 20 minute ride. There is a very good all-night diner across the street.

The bnb is spotless and the hosts are wonderful and welcoming. I really enjoyed my room (leather room) and the facilities. The noise at night from the club really didn't bother me. I'd love to stay here again.

I have nothing but praise for this place. It's right on the same block as two of the best gay bars in Chicago and a leather shop run by the proprietors of the guesthouse. There are decent places to eat, supermarket and liquor stores within walking distance, and public transport to downtown Chicago is right at the front door. I will definitely be back again.

This is the perfect place for the LGBT visitor to Chicago. The B&B is not too far from the Red line, so you can get there by L for only $3 from both Chicago airports.

The leather room was decorated perfectly in theme. The entire room was spotless and clean. It's in a great location near a couple of clubs, a leather shop, and several restaurants. The owners are very nice and accommodating. My overall experience was wonderful and better than expected.

The pictures and website don't do this place justice. It really is a nice space. It feels like staying in a 5 bedroom apartment with your own secure bedroom and access to a large kitchen, living/dining area and two large bathrooms. I only ran into a couple of people all weekend, so felt like I had the place to myself. The space is a few floors above the clubs, but if you lay down to sleep before 4am, you will definitely hear the thumping. They do have ear plugs available. The bathrooms could have used a little attention, but know you are sharing with a number of other guests. Otherwise, a great home base for clubbing with a good little diner across the street. Bus stop right out front takes you into Boystown if you want more. I had little expectation for food/snacks, so the little that was available met my expectations.
