What do guests think?

I stayed at 1500 Main from Feb-June 2017. I needed a transitional place for myself and my family while my house was being sold. From the moment I walked in I was “home”. The townhouse was gorgeous, impeccably decorated, spotless and extremely private. Every amenity that was possibly needed was met. There is also the most adorable courtyard for morning coffee or just to sit in the shade with a good book. The unit is truly “move in ready”. All you need to bring is your suitcase! Everything else is taken care of for you. The owners-Jim & Ginger are AMAZING! They are the nicest people! If anything is needed they are there to take care of it. I loved staying there so much…I wish I could have stayed longer!

We highly recommend this townhouse. Its a great Evanston experience: wonderful neighborhood with the bonus of being a historic house recently renovated with lots of taste for all the needs of today. This is a true home away from home. You have the comfort and privacy of a private home with great owners (I cannot speak highly enough of Jim and Ginger) who are always thinking about how to improve the experience and make it even more comfortable. You can literally arrive with your suitcase... everything else is there.
