Description of the Chicago vacation apartment rental
Writers' Retreat is an immaculate two bedroom apartment less than a mile from Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs. Located in a charming four unit building in a quiet, historic, residential Chicago neighborhood. It is just down the street from the Brown Line train stop connecting downtown, the Loop and other parts of Chicago, like McCormick Place, Navy Pier, Chicago Art Institute, Adler Planetarium. Not far from the Addison stop on the Blue Line, which runs to O'Hare Airport and the bus stop, getting to the Lake front and other parts of the City is no problem. We are very pet and family friendly. We're happy to help you decide on activities and locate places that will make your trip fabulous. This apartment is within walking distance of Trader Joe's, Martyr's, Expresso Yourself, the Globe Pub and Chicago Joe's. Within 5-10 minute drive of Loyloa University, Starbucks, Easy Rider Bike Shop.

Just a short walk to a wide variety of restaurants, pubs, music, and shopping..

The decor of Writers' Retreat focuses on the history of Chicago and its literary heritage. The master bedroom offers a queen bedroom and two twin beds. The Bradbury room provides a queen bed. If you require additional space, ask about renting additional units in the same building.

We are pet friendly and welcome everyone in the family. All the streets in this quiet neighborhood have mature trees and nice landscaping making it a great place to take walks. Parking directly in front of the building is free with plenty of spaces always available (unbelievable, but true). There is garage parking available

Monthly Rate $2100-2400

Spacious city apartment in a safe Chicago neighborhood. If you don't know Chicago and want to use public transportation I would recommend.

This was our first time staying in Chicago, and wanted to rent a place with more space than a hotel, yet close to my son's college. We were very happy with the Writers' Retreat. It was so nice to be able to spread out, have a couple bedrooms, computer & printer access, and also a full kitchen. We spent lots of time in the city, but when we came back to slumber for the night...we got a instant (free) parking spot! The kids loved the wide screen TV and we all agreed the beds and bedding were super comfy. When we woke up the next morning to begin our next excursion, we were all so rested!! The water bubbler in the kitchen was so nice! There was no need to bring bottled water into the apartment. Although we did not prepare meals, the full kitchen had everything we needed to open a bottle of wine, and preheat leftovers, etc. The shower had nice hot water with great pressure. I could go on and on...but I think you get the picture. If we come back to stay for a few nights...we would without question want to return!

We visited Chicago for a Cubs game. Stayed two nites at this condo and really loved the area, lots of bars and restaurants within walking distance. The condo was clean, well equipped and very nice. Donna was very helpful throughout the process.

Sparkling, well-equipped and on a quiet residential street, it is a short walk to restaurants, shopping and public transportation. Street parking is widely available, unusual for a Chicago neighborhood! Owner (Donna) was truly interested in making us feel at home during our stay in the neighborhood. Highly recommended!
