Our family of 4 absolutely loved our stay with Jim and Ginger. Their home felt like a real home. From the beautiful garden, to the comfy beds, to the milk that was waiting in the fridge for our tired kids getting off a red-eye, Jim and Ginger added so much warmth to our stay in Evanston. We would definitely stay there again in the future and highly recommend to anyone in the area.

We very much enjoyed our stay here.
Thanks so much for all the thoughtful details. Our favorite part was walking through the garden.

Great House, Great Location and Best of ALL, Great Hosts

We are a family of 5 visited Northwestern University and we chose to stay in this great house since it was well rated. To our nice surprise, it was better than 5 star, if I were able to give a 7 star review. Ginger and Jim treated us like his family, and there were so many small details that delighted us, and the list of such is long, for example, they label every details things, and they have every single details in the Magazine. We went to the Great Lake of Michigan to swim as my youngest son wanted to do, and we found out they Ginger and Jim have the beach passes and we got it with a surprise like a gift. We would definitely recommend anybody to stay here, and if we come back to Chicago/Evanston, we would come back and stay a few more days.

Great Evanston Rental With Fantastic Hosts
Comfortable home in a very walkable neighborhood. Quick 10 minute walk to grab morning coffee/dinner or to the L. Short UBER ride to Northwestern campus. Good place to stay during peak NU events. Jim and Ginger stocked the home with anything a guest might need. They were very accommodating and great at communicating before and during our stay but not at all intrusive (kinda sad we never met in person). We would definitely consider staying here again if ever in Evanston.

Everything about our stay was wonderful.
Your house and garden are amazing. It’s obvious you take great pride in what you do. The neighborhood was relaxing and welcoming. Thank you for everything.

Nice vacation house!

Very nice house, exactly as shown in the photos! We really enjoyed our stay! Only a mile or so walk or jog to the beach or downtown Evanston. Thanks Jim and Ginger!

Lovely space in a cozy neighborhood.

We stayed here with our crew of 6 spanning 2 years to 65 years. There was something for everyone.
Jim and Ginger more than accommodated our small children and the grown ups enjoyed touring their lovely back garden. The beds were comfortable, their kitchen was well stocked and we spent more than one night dining in because the space was so relaxing and enjoyable. We look forward to staying again!
