    The house was perfect! Really nice home and the extra touches of hospitality were an extra bonus! If we need a house near Chicago again- we will definitely return!

  • Family wedding and visit old hometown


    The property was just as it is pictured. The host is amazing and very helpful. We walked in-the lights were on, snacks and fruit on the counter to enjoy, plus k-cups and cold water in frig! We stayed close to where my mom (86 years old) grew up. the blessing of family stories was a highlight. Then a family wedding by in Chicago. Thanks for a lovely place to stay. Walking around the neighborhood or to the grocery store made this a convenient location.

    Our stay at you home was Spectacular. The home was immaculate, my family enjoyed themselves so much. The neighborhood was nice and quiet and everything we needed was within 2 miles. Thank you so much Gwen for your hospitality!

    Very nice house. The hostess, Gwen, was very thoughtful and communicated very well with me so there was no anxiety about anything. The home accommodated my husband and myself and our son. But this would also be a great place to stay for a family with young children. The neighborhood is quiet and the backyard is fenced in. All in all, a good experience.

    The location was a little further from the softball fields than we would’ve liked, but it was DEFINITELY WORTH THE DRIVE! The convenience of getting up and having breakfast or working in the kitchen or playing Xbox was nice! Very clean—-much cleaner than the hotels in Crown Point!! Thank you for opening your “home” to us!
