This is a charming older building with original accents recently furnished to make any stay feel like home. It is just 7 minutes (by car) to downtown Evanston, Northwestern University and the lakefront, with public street parking, wifi, TV, & NETFLIX. Enjoy the temporarily very low price of this modest, no-frills listing now. A true value-stay but with many of the comforts of home and amenities you might expect. See the listing details for more information.

The space
This is a cozy apartment in an older modest building. Thought it is not high-end or even very modern, it is a comfortable, no-frills, 1st floor value on a quiet tree-lined street. That being said, we hope you appreciate it's finer touches to make it seem like your home away from home. 7 minutes from Northwestern University, it is centrally located amongst Chicago's north side and suburbs. We are also minutes away to make sure your stay is as pleasant as can be.

Where you’ll be

Evanston, Illinois, United States

It is conveniently located minutes from Northwestern University campus and downtown Evanston. It is 2.4 miles to Westfield Old Orchard Mall (Macy's, Nordstrom, Apple, etc). A 2 minute walk to the 208 bus takes you right there (see for any updated Covid-19 scheduling). Also 3.7 miles to Walmart, Marianos Fresh Market and Lincolnwood Town Center Mall, it is another easy bus ride to almost anything one needs.

The  area is indexed as a low-crime area by City-Data, a national repository for neighborhood statistics. We have been in the area for many years and have hosted many guests without one incident of crime.

We also keep an eye on the daily crime reports for the neighborhood, and found crime in our quiet block in particular to be lower than area's already low rating.

There are many grocery options nearby. The closest is Valli Produce at 1.3 miles away. The cheapest is Food4Less on Main St just 1.9 miles away. We prefer the newer Mariano's on Touhy in Skokie which is 3.3 miles away. There is also Whole Foods on Sherman just 1.7 miles away in Downtown Evanston. You can pretty easily look up all of these grocers to find one that best fits your preferences.
