About Doug M.
I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and have lived in the city for the last 25 years, the last twelve in Bucktown & Logan Square. We've always enjoyed the neighborhood and enjoy being an active part of the neighborhood. I work 10 minutes from the house so I'm always close by. I'm a trained carpenter and now General Contractor. You'll probably find me working on the house and property. I love to spend time with my family and enjoy the neighborhood and Chicago in general. I'm an avid home cook and look forward to preparing and eating with friends and family. We have a dog in the house, so you may hear him running around every now and then. Will try to keep any noise to a minimum. We live above the garden apartment in the main house. I have a lot of information and recommendations on local places to go/see/do. I'll be more than happy to share this info with you to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
Doug M. purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Doug M. chose Logan Square
We've always enjoyed the Bucktown and Logan Square neighborhoods and were ready to move on a single family home from a condominium. We had the opportunity to buy this house and have had a great time. We're happy to share a part of it with you!
What makes this Apartment unique
High walk-able, easy access to other neighborhoods via car, bike or public transportation. Expressway is nearby as well. Anything in the city itself is accessible with public transportation (CTA buses or trains), taxi cabs, and car services like Uber/Lyft/Sidecar. If you need to go out to the suburbs, a rental car would definitely make getting out there easier. There are nearby car rental locations for Enterprise and Zipcar for short term car rental if you need it. The apartment is about a 12 minute walk (1/2 mile) to the CTA Blue Line Elevated/Subway train. That train runs from O'Hare Airport to downtown (our stop is about half way in between). There are 2 major bus routes by the house that can take you east/west and north/south. Ordering a taxi or car service is easy from our location too.

Great neighbourhood and place to stay
The neighbourhood had a lovely feel, lots of Halloween decorations on houses. The apartment was clean and had very comfy couches. The furnace in the laundry room had a gas leak but the landlord was onto it instantly, had the gas company there straight away and the repair done that morning. We loved our time in Chicago and would recommend this apartment for your stay.
Perfect for us!
Doug’s place was great for my family, including my three-year-old granddaughter. She fell in love with the swing set and we could not get her to do anything else! We found everything we needed for light meals and coming and going. Parking was great, with an open spot right outside of our place everyday. Doug returned our messages within minutes and was very accommodating. Thanks again, for sharing your home.
Different never did that before.
It worked out for us because we were babysitting on belden.
Short walk to train to downtown
Doug was a great host; responsive and helpful. House was big enough for three people to hang out in between tourist activities without crowding each other. The Blue Line (transit) was a half mile away. We used public transit the entire time.
Our host Doug was terrific! The garden apartment was perfect for us to attend a family wedding. The location worked out great and the neighborhood was very friendly. We would definitely stay here again when visiting family.
