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!

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.

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

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.

The company I work for has rented this property several times over the past 10 years. The space is great for us and each time a new employee makes the trip, they always comment on the beauty and perfect location of the home. This visit, I have been responsible for cooking for our group during our stay, so I have seen first hand how great the staff is here. The house is immaculate and the staff is always eager to accommodate - they go the extra mile in keeping everything clean and refreshing linens each day of our stay. Lucy has especially been great to us, making sure we have everything we need and that our stay is going well. All this said, we look forward to returning in the future.

We stayed on the second floor of the W Newport property and it was absolutely perfect! The bedrooms were very comfortable and my nephews appreciated the room with the twin beds. The shower is a little puzzling to figure out, but really nice when you do! The place is big, beautifully furnished and decorated. It's a short walk to Wrigley Field, The Blue Man Group, shopping, and restaurants.

A real gem in Chicago. Teri was quick to respond and accommodate all of our needs. The place was exquisite. Every detail was thought out for a top notch experience. Beats any fancy hotel hands down. Yes Chicago has plenty to see and do, but we struggled to leave the house. A++
