Description

Private room with cozy pillow-top full-size bed. 1.5 bathrooms, shared shower. Quiet, clean and warm atmosphere home with hardwood floors and fenced-in yard.

Great for family visiting students or checking out nearby colleges/universities on the North side of Chicago (both Northwestern University and Loyola University are within 4 miles), families visiting and touring Chicago, or business travelers.

Stay with me if you enjoy an environment with plants, music, art, and pets. The neighborhood is quiet to walk around. Location is convenient to public transportation, the interstate, and a short driving distance to walk along Lake Michigan in the neighboring suburb of Evanston. Two scenic views nearby that I enjoy taking guests: (1) From a certain point at Northwestern University, you can see the downtown Chicago skyline. (2) Visit the beautiful Bahai Temple and its gardens.

Tea drinker? You have a number options to choose from. Also have a French coffee press or a Mr Coffee machine if that's your preferred morning drink. If you are proficient on the piano, you are welcome to play my tuned full upright piano. Or bring your instrument to practice.

Enjoy watching movies or other shows? You can choose from my movie library, borrow from the extensive selection at the local library, or watch cable tv.

My little mini-dachshund, Penny Lane, loves having company around to play or be petted. My canary, Kai, might trill out a song.

If I cannot meet you when you arrive, I will communicate with you about obtaining keys.

You can store your personal essentials in the half bathroom and share the shower in the full bathroom. You are welcome to cook in the kitchen and eat at the dining room table. There's a VCR to watch movies upstairs, and cable TV and VCR in a basement family room. The washer/dryer are also in the basement.

If the weather is nice, you can sit on a bench in the front yard or sit on a rocker bench in the backyard.

I'm available in the evening as much or as little as you like. A couple days in the week, I work remotely from home.

Skokie is a very culturally diverse community. Its wonderful library reflects this diversity in their collection of books, movies, and lectures/performances. Some of my favorite nearby restaurants in Skokie are Annie's for breakfast; Libertad, modern Latin American; Curragh, Irish pub; Kaufman's, a traditional deli; Dengeo's for some of the best gyros; and Sweety Pie for coffee/tea and dessert just to name a few. Shopping and movies at the Westfield Shopping Center which is kitty corner from the Performing Arts Center of Skokie. You can walk along the canal where there is a sculpture park (you can also canoe/kayak in the canal). You can see neighbors walking, jogging, running, or biking in the neighborhood.

There is a CVS within a couple blocks north and a Seven 11 about three blocks south. There is a Roman Catholic church two blocks west, and numerous synagogues to choose from within a short drive.

Located in quiet residential neighborhood with easy street parking.

My place is equidistant to both Northwestern University in Evanston or Loyola University's north side Chicago campus so easily accessible by car, taxi, Uber or Lyft.

An easy walk to the Pace bus #215 one block over or to the CTA bus #97 three blocks away. Transfer to either Red or Yellow line "L" trains to get downtown (15 mi south). Close to Northwestern University (4 mi) or Loyola University (5 mi). Easily accessible to Touhy or Dempster exits on I-94. There are two Metra stations within a 15-minute car ride.

When away from home, my dog is housed in her caged area. She will be sad to be locked up when someone is in the house; however, she will readily go to her area with a treat. She's been trained to do a specific action if she wants to go outside .

Maureen was a gracious and hospitable host. The home was located in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood. The room provided by Maureen was clean, cozy, and well kept. The stay was enjoyable and I hope to return one day.

Maureen was a wonderful hostess! We felt comfortable in her home right away. Her dog is quiet, sweet and cuddly. Maureen was helpful with my trip before I even arrived. After I told her I was coming to do some genealogical research she started looking for resources I may not have thought of. My mom got sick while we were there and Maureen gave her vitamin C, herbal teas, and a special Vick's plug-in. She even dug through her art supplies to find something for us to make a rubbing of a headstone. We were especially grateful for the wonderful restaurant recommendations she made and enjoyed a having Thai and pie with her! We hope she'll come visit us in the future. She made a great trip wonderful!

5-star host in Skokie. After this, I might never go to a hotel again. Thank you Maureen for taking care of so many details imagined and unimagined. That I prefer not to reveal here, so other people can find out themselves. You provided so much human touch in this hi-tech world. At first I didn't want stay in Skokie due to long commute to downtown. However, Maureen gave valuable insider tips of when using cta, metra, bus or uber in conjuction. Spending $10/day and 40-mun commute was unexpected awesome. Next time in Chicago I will book in advance to make sure your place is available. Thanks for the invaluable conversations. You are my new best Chicago friend now. God bless.

My sister and I decided to go with an airbnb listing over a budget hotel and we are so glad we did. First, the space is immaculate- so much cleaner and more peaceful than other places we have stayed (like budget hotels...how nice not to be concerned about bedbugs or dirty sheets or noisy neighbors!). There is a half bath for guests a few steps away from the guest bedroom (which is even prettier than the pictures on the site show), and a full bath next to that with a (very clean) shower that's shared. Second, Maureen is a great host. We benefited from her knowledge of the area and followed several of her suggestions. She offered help we didn't realize we needed, and basically did everything she could to make sure we got the most out of our two night stay. She made coffee for us both mornings and set out a bunch of teas as well. She also let us use her fridge and freezer to store a few things. Third, this is a great location. There was easy street parking right in front of the house both days we were there. The neighborhood feels safe, the house and yard are lovely, and there are great places to eat and nice little neighborhood markets just minutes from the house. Finally, I must mention that Maureen's little dog is also a selling point- tiny, adorable, well-behaved, and friendly, she had us at "hello." :) Overall a very pleasant and charming place to stay!

Maureen is one of those extraordinary people who is talented, one of the sweetest people you will meet and very well organized. I had exclusive use of 1 sleeping room and the guest bath which were both closest to the kitchen.  The shower is in a bathroom shared with other occupants of the house.  The whole place was clean and neat.  In addition, the sleeping room was spacious. The sleeping room's outside casement windows were high on the wall so the room was very private.  I live in the country so night-time outside my home bedroom is dark.  Maureen's neighborhood is well lit at night.  On 2 of the nights that I slept at Maureen's, the outside temperatures were delightful and the open windows made the sleeping room air fresh and pleasant.  The 3rd night was hotter and the air conditioning worked well.  I slept well.  The room was quiet even with windows open.  If you need electricity near the head of the bed for your laptop or other device, you might want to bring an extension cord as the outlets are behind the bed or along the side walls near the foot of the bed.

Maureen was a great host! Her house is lovely, the bedroom and bathroom private and clean and the location ideal with tons of street parking. Maureen provided a delicious breakfast, fresh coffee and a lot of insight into the area, with ideas of where to go, eat, etc. She even loaned us a cart for helping with our daughter's move. I would definitely stay again and look forward to it. An added bonus - an adorable dog!

There’s so much to do in metropolitan Chicago, especially in the summer—sports, live entertainment, museums, restaurants, architecture, tours, beaches, street fairs, festivals, etc! Having grown up here, I enjoy sharing history of Chicago and favorite things for guests to do and see during their stay.

When travelling, I enjoy getting to know the culture and people of the country I’m visiting. Abroad, I have travelled to some areas of Canada, Mexico (Gulf side), Europe, and Asia. With Airbnb, I am looking forward to learning about where you live and your travel experiences.

My work is accounting mainly with not-for-profit organizations and I do some of this work remotely from home. Working in the not-for-profit sector is important to me because these groups work to improve the lives of people in their communities.

I enjoy watching movies and old shows, gardening, photography, and music. Play an instrument? You’re welcome to practice it. I’ll work around practicing for my weekly church job to not disturb you.
