Visit Chicago!

We are so excited to announce some very BIG news – we are home another Airbnb in Chicago!  

Jennifer’s in-laws are from Chicago, and it’s her favorite city that starts with a C, outside of Calgary of course! She and her family visit the Windy City at least twice a year, and when Jennifer started thinking about opening up a second BnB it only made sense to do it in Chicago.  

For a few months, Jen has been scanning reality sites, hoping to find the perfect spot, and then one day, she saw a listing for a nine-bedroom home in Chicago’s beautiful Andersonville neighborhood. It felt like fate, and she knew that she needed to take the opportunity to expand. Thankfully, everything fell into the place, and the new BnB will be opening sometime later this year!  

Because Chicago has a lot to offer, this BnB will have a different kind of feel. While we are open to business travelers and couples, in Chicago, we’ll focus on catering to families and large groups, many of which have a hard time find accommodations in the big city.  

Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood is the perfect spot for our BnB. It’s not right next to downtown, rather it’s a quiet, more-family oriented neighborhood. There are some beautiful homes nearby and you’ll feel safe walking around at night. Andersonville itself is an upcoming neighborhood with tons of great restaurants, bars, theaters, and shops. And, if you want to get downtown for an evening, the train is nearby. Plus, it’s within walking distance to a quiet beach area. If you are looking for a trip to Chicago that allows you to see the city beyond the tourist traps, Andersonville is a great spot.  

We’ll be posting more when we have a launch day, and we’ll also have some specials for those who have stayed with us in Calgary. For now, we are just so excited that this dream is finally becoming a reality!
