"I stayed in "Alice's Hideaway" for about 5 months. I can't give enough praise for how enjoyable it was. If I could give it 10 stars I would."

"The Alice apartment I lived in is beautiful, just like a fairyland. It has everything one needs to have in order to live comfortably”

The LIVING ROOM offers a comfortable sofa (not the one pictured), chair and wood-look Pergo floor.

A second LIVING ROOM AREA offers the sofa shown plus a love seat, both facing the 36" television .

A tiger-oak desk is the highlight of the STUDY, and there are dozens of books on the floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, as well as a deep closet.

The DINING NOOK on a raised platform faces south via a large sunny picture window overlooking the garden. Shelving is convenient for keeping extra kitchenware handy.

The KITCHENETTE includes a full-sized refrigerator, 2-burner electric cook top, coffee maker, microwave, blender, counter convection oven, granite-like counters and sink and all kitchenware.

BEDROOM #1 is decorated with hand-painted furnishings modeled after a Victorian "painted lady." Even the queen bed, covered with a handmade quilt, is topped by a large headboard reminiscent of a Victorian gabled roof line, with its round vented “attic window”.  A delightful carved armoire can house one's clothing, as can the  large triple dresser.

"I stayed at Alice's twice and each time I spent several months at this beautiful place. It was always like this: as soon as I had arrived I felt at home instantly. This was partly so because the place is spacious and beautifully furnished with antiques, it is well equipped."

A second LIVING ROOM AREA is furnished differently than shown. A full-size sofa and love-seat face the 36" cable television

"We really enjoyed our one-year stay at Alice's and becoming acquainted with two interesting folks"

"It had everything I can imagine from comfortable interiors, a study, loads of books, kitchen with all the utensils, a dinning, a living room, TV with thousands of channels, cooling & heating provisions, wifi, laundry. I mean everything and decently priced too."

The sunny DINING NOOK on a raised platform faces south via a large picture window overlooking the garden. Shelving is convenient for keeping board games or extra kitchenware handy.

"Alice was very roomy and bright and would service a smaller family well. The apartment was well stocked with soaps, shampoo, etc."

"If just the 2 of us return to Chicago, we would happily rent the smaller unit, Alice."
