We want to make sure you enjoy your time in our home and in our city!]
Ideally located in North Center/Lincoln Square, our apartment is convenient to all the vibrant neighborhoods, events, and sights that Chicago has to offer.  But it also provides you with the quiet and comfort you may want, to be able to relax at the end of the day...so you can plan and energize for the next! 
Our place is a short stroll away from the world-renowned Old Town School of Folk Music where you can catch jazz, flamenco, samba, salsa, Cajun,  reggae, African and other world music on any given night.  Award-winning Half-Acre Brewery is just steps away in the other direction!  Then there are countless high-end/ethnic/casual dining spots, grocery shopping, wine bars and pubs, a magnificent library, bookstore, European-style bakeries, candy shop, gelato parlor, an enormous park (great for outdoor activities and various year-round events), and many quaint specialty shops not found in other parts of the city.
Depending on your mood for the day, you might start the morning with a brisk walk through Welles Park, followed by smoked lox and favorite dark roast across the street at Julius Meinl, make a stop or two at shops in Lincoln Square, have pad thai noodles for lunch at Opart Thai, then take the 'L' train ride to the Loop (downtown Chicago) for an afternoon at Millennium Park and the Art Institute, then head back to the neighborhood for dinner at Bistro Campagne, capping off the night at Huettenbar for beers. The next day may be a good time to bike around Lincoln Square, have a croissant and coffee at Selmarie, stop in across the street at Merz Apothecary, visit Old Town School of Folk Music to check out the night's performances, then on to early dinner at Mythos Greek Restaurant. Or just go economical and buy groceries/supplies at Jewel Food Store (a minute walk from the property) and have a cookout in the backyard!.

About the Owner

I am a career corporate finance professional and a life-long Chicagoan and resident of the Lincoln Square neighborhood. My wife is an attorney and we have two lovely children, ages 16 and 8. We collect art and greatly enjoy world travel.
Virgil  purchased this Apartment in 1910
Why Virgil  chose Ravenswood
This 1-BR rental unit is on the second floor of a beautiful brick two-flat and has an open balcony that's great to hang out at in the warmer months. The building is quintessential Chicago and conveniently located near transportation, a great park, shopping, fine restaurants, pubs, cafes, quaint little shops and the Old Town School of Music that has hosted acclaimed musicians from all over the world. The neighborhood has everything to offer for all ages and backgrounds - playground for kids, art fairs and festivals for the entire family, wine-tasting for oenophiles, spa for the ladies, sports bars, a big park to walk/jog in, and many more. Around the corner is Lutz Continental Cafe and Pastry, a Chicago institution that draws visitors from all over the city. 
The property is in a quiet, tree-lined block that is easy to get to and from many other points of interests in the city.
What makes this Apartment unique
This 1-BR unit has a quiet, cozy and modern/vintage vibe that's ideal for a couple on a romantic getaway or any traveler looking for a more relaxed alternative to hotel stays in a vibrant and safe city neighborhood. The location is ideal in that vacationers can enjoy its many unique local attractions, in addition to downtown and other Chicago sites being easily accessible via car or public transportation.

Ro is an awesome host he greeted us on arrival and answered all of our questions and gave some great tips about the neighborhood. The area was quiet and easily accessible by walking or car to restaurants and stores. We enjoyed our time and would rent from Ro again.
