This beautifully appointed studio loft near the border of Avondale and Irving Park features tons of exposed brick, a modern kitchen and a rooftop patio space. If you’re driving in the city, this rental conveniently offers free parking and easy access to O’Hare or downtown via the Kennedy Expressway.

Calling all fairytale fanatics. The Castle on Berwyn, one of Andersonville’s most famous properties, is filled with enough ornate art and antiques to make you feel like total royalty. Architectural buffs will appreciate the fact that massive carved stones from old, demolished Chicago buildings dot the backyard garden and patio. Don’t be surprised if a historic home tour passes by during your stay.

3. Historic Gold Coast hideaway

Rent a piece of history in the Gold Coast when you book the famous Florsheim Mansion for the Arts, which sleeps 12 people in its five well-appointed bedrooms. Given the nature of the space, a hefty security deposit is required up front, but there are plenty of perks that make it worthwhile: You’ll rest your head where a shoe heiress once slept, relax near a koi and turtle pond and, of course, be able to say you stayed in the Florsheim Mansion

4. Kid-approved Wrigleyville kingdom

When it’s not being rented on Airbnb, this Wrigleyville coach house is home to four kids—and the playful decor and toy supply prove it. Rent the entire rustic four-bedroom pad for the weekend and enjoy recent renovations, including a playspace for kids that’s only accessible by ladder. Equipped with a crib, tons of toys and an expansive library filled with bedtime reads, it’s no wonder this rental boasts a great rating.

5. Sunny Lakeview stunner

Appropriately dubbed the “Outdoor Oasis,” this home’s 1,000-square-foot deck and patio overshadow any of its indoor amenities (and those are pretty spectacular, too). Save this rental for summer months, when you can put the cabana and bar space to good use with an outdoor celebration.

6. Pilsen Instagram IRL

Hello, gorgeous! This light-filled minimalistic apartment features polished wood floors, indoor plants and all-white decor. The back door opens to a lush yard with a hammock, firepit and grill.

7. South Loop luxury

This high-ceilinged two-bedroom condo sleeps up to six guests. The South Loop high-rise location offers easy access to Columbia College, the Museum Campus and Grant Park—and with laundry in-unit, it might be the ideal perch for an inevitably muddy Lollapalooza weekend.
