German Village Guesthouse: Live Like a Local
January 25, 2012
If you've had the pleasure of strolling the atmospheric streets of German Village , with their 150-year-old brick homes, decadent patisseries and delicious restaurants, you've probably though to yourself: I really wish I lived here! There is a way you can live out that fantasy, even while you're just visiting: The German Village Guesthouse !
Tucked away on Jaeger Street, the guesthouse is just steps away from great restaurants like Barcelona , G Michaels and Lindey's . There's no big street sign, so you really do feel like you're just walking into your very own Village pied a terre. What awaits you upon entry? A beautifully furnished living space with three guest suites, and a truly spectacular patio that ranks among the best in the Village.
Guests share the living room, kitchen (supplied with fresh baked banana bread, locally roasted coffee and basic fridge and pantry staples) and patio, and can retreat to their own private rooms, each with its own full bathroom. Each suite is an urban oasis, with ultra-plush mattresses and stylish, minimal decor that captures the German Village design sensibility.
If you're looking more for loft-living, the Guesthouse also offers two 800-square-foot apartment s for visitors a few blocks away. The apartments are dog-friendly (a walk in Schiller Park with your pup will DEFINITELY make you feel like a local) and decorated with the same great style as the Guesthouse.
