This Vintage building was built in the early 1900's with a retail shop on street level and 2 private apartments above. Winnetka is a small village just 20 miles north of Downtown Chicago, with tudor style buildings giving it an European "Old World" feel. Safe, clean & friendly, it is a place like no other. :)
Private front and rear entrances to upstair units from the street. Street parking. There is a small private backyard to relax and cookout in warmer months. The backyard is shared by all building occupants.
I am available when needed. Train schedules, local restaurant menus, music venues, etc. are enclosed in a guest packet that will be left on the kitchen table. The retail hockey shop below is open 10:00 - 6:00 Mon. - Sat. The friendly staff is very helpful with information and recommendations.
If guests plan on independent study, we can help with paint easel, drop cloths, sewing tables, etc. Bike rentals can be arranged, along with other sporting equipment if needed. I can provide sleeping cots & bedding for sunporch and space heater in winter months.
