The space

History: Albert Lasker is known as "the father of modern advertising". He owned the Chicago Cubs from 1916 until 1925, when he sold the club to his good friend William Wrigley. The "Bean-Shaped" Music Cocktail Lounge, a few hundred yards from Lasker's 55 room mansion, is where he entertained his guests in the 1920's. If the walls could talk??

The North Bedroom has a king bed, 52" TV and a nifty loft with a full sized bed. All skylights have remote motorized dark out blinds for daytime sleeping. The 'state-of-the-art' kitchen features newly installed appliances: SubZero, Wolf, Bosch. The historic 1920's Music Lounge provides a spacious 20' x 36' common area featuring a cozy seating area in front of the instant on gas fireplace, a six seating dining table overlooking the beautify topiary garden, a 1930's baby grand piano (for all inclined), a round game table, and a desk reading area.

This home is amazing and the pictures don't do it justice! It was pristinely kept. There was plenty of room for the 6 of us (4 adults and 2 children ages 6 & 2.5). The first AM, there were 3 young bucks playing in the front yard for an hour while we watched them from the back deck. Ed was a great host and asked us our preferences for food and stocked the refrigerator. The home added to our son's amazing wedding experience. DO NOT hesitate to book with them!

We arrived at the house at 10:30 pm. Ed met us at the door, walked us through the house and gave us a thorough intro. The Music Studio is beautiful with all described amenities. The beds are super comfortable. The decor is very elegant through out the house. We enjoyed our time there and wish we could stay longer. Ed is a gracious host, he stocked the refrigerator with breakfast food for us before we arrived. The welcome chocolate is a real treat.

Ed's AirBnB is the place to go when you want to have your privacy, be close to nature but also next to tollway to Chicago. The house offers all you will need and even more. It is very clean, has fully equipped kitchen and very comfortable beds. The owner is very nice and ready to assist you with any request you may have.

My wife and I have just finished a 10 day stay at Ed's property the "Music Lounge." It is truly a special and historic property that Ed has turned into a 5 star home. Combine that with Ed's attention to every detail and the result is a memorable stay. We would give it the highest of recommendations.

Ed is a phenomenal host. Very generous, flexible, and kind. He goes above and beyond to make sure you have a nice visit. The refrigerator was overstocked with food. My sons could have had two meals if not three with all the food he left. He is very easy to get along with. I hate to leave this review as I worry everyone will grab this house. But it is a review that is well deserved.
