An historic Chicago neighborhood filled with great dining options, boutiques, summer festivals and nightlife just northwest of the downtown “Loop” area of Chicago. The Wicker Park Guest House, located just 1.5 blocks from the Polish Triangle at the Blue line stop (Milwaukee/Division/Ashland) offers easy access to/from airports, museums and all the major sightseeing spots.  Two apartments (flats) are available for rental for up to 5 guests in either the “Bucktown” first floor or “Wicker Park” 2nd floor units of this 1890′s brick storefront rehab.  These flats are part of the House of Two Urns B&B property, but are offered as a “flat” for guests, who wish more privacy, have children under the age of 10 or are not interested in the B&B breakfast as part of their stay.  Visit Chicago and discover the world from the Wicker Park Guest House on your next trip to the Windy City.

I came to discover that Chicago is that most American of American cities, but one where citizens from more than 130 nations inhabit a rich tapestry of distinctive neighborhoods. Each one of those neighborhoods — from Greektown to the Ukrainian Village; from Devon to Pilsen to Washington Park — has its own unique character, its own unique history, its songs, its language. But each is also part of our city — one city — a city where I finally found a home.
