Interaction with guests
My husband and I live on the first floor of a duplex (completely separate units with separate entrances) and can be around when needed. We want our guests to feel like this is a home away from home and will have as little or as much interaction as requested! You might see us working in the yard on the weekends. We also regularly grill and have bon fires. You are more than welcome to join or have one yourselves!

About the neighbourhood
We are steps from downtown Forest Park where you can grab coffee at charming local cafes, shop, wine, dine & listen to live music! Grab a drink at Counter Coffee then head over to Madison Park Kitchen for their famous skillets. Shop around at Jayne, Madison Park Shoes, or some antique shops then grab a bite at Scratch for outstanding burgers or Caffe De Luca for gourmet salads or Gaetanos for authentic Italian. Just make sure to save room for dessert at Brown Cow! ALL of these and more are literally steps away from us on Madison street. If you want to do your own cooking, Whole Foods, Jewel Osco, the Sugar Beet Co-op and Trader Joes are all less than a mile away.
Getting around
.When you decide to head into the city, don't even bother taking a car. We are barely a 7 minute walk from the green line and less than a mile from the blue line. Just a quick train ride until you're dropped off directly downtown by the famous Chicago sign in the middle of state street shopping and right across from Millennium Park. Without traffic both O'hare and Midway airports are about 20 minutes away. By car we are about 8 miles from the Chicago loop via interstate 290.
