We stayed here for 3 nights while we toured several Frank Lloyd Wright Homes. We hadn’t realized that several of the homes were quite the drive from Oak Park ( our bad). Once you leave the beautiful neighborhood traffic is a nightmare and the surrounding areas are not as safe as we had hoped. The home itself is lovely. We were able to enjoy the lovely outdoor area. The suite was spacious and beautifully furnished.
This property is luxurious, homey and so well appointed. Some people want to be left alone and others want to be best buds with the owners. I am more middle of the road and the owner/manager provided the perfect blend. So walkable to points of interest in Oak Park and the train if one wants to go to downtown Chicago. We were lucky to happen upon this property. We hope to stay again in the Fall.
Don't pass up a chance to stay here. As a repeat guest it is a pleasure to be able to enjoy the luxury of this beautiful B&B. Not only is the building and grounds impecable, the hostess is thoughful and caring as well. Each room is exquisite and the location cant be any better. Restaurants are within walking distance as well as the train. We will return!
Harvey House is a beautiful century old home in Oak Park’s historic district. I’ve had the pleasure of staying there several times, each of which was enjoyable. Beth is a gracious and welcoming host, and the breakfasts are terrific. All the rooms are different, well-appointed, and immaculate. The living room and back patio are comfortable and quiet. If you’re looking for a unique place to spend a tranquil weekend, I’d encourage you to try Harvey House, I guarantee you’ll have a wonderful experience.
This is such an exceptional Band B. Never experienced anything so well out together. Feels Regal. Great value. Special hostess. Each room is exquisite and unique. The bathrooms were very modern and spotless. They shine. The living room and backyard are also peaceful and beautiful. This would be a great place for a small cooperate retreat or meditations retreat.
Oak Park is great and this is a wonderful location even if you want to take a train ride into Chicago!! Restaurant's in the area are fabulous. Beth was wonderful and the breakfast was great.... Enjoy!!
This is a lovely B&B upholding the traditions of hospitality so often lost at chain hotels and AirBnb. This is a lovely option if you want to remember what's being lost when you've taken to always booking via the tech-driven platforms and forgetting it takes a real person dedicated to the craft of hospitality to make for an enjoyable stay. The warmth and attention to detail here will not disappoint. Cannot recommend highly enough.
We were in Chicagoland to visit family in Elmhurst, where the housing options aren't great... either large convention hotels or depressing chains. Oak Park is 20-min. drive from there, and about the same travel time to the city via the El or Metra trains. And it's a pretty, historic area to stay. Harvey House is at a convenient location: it's near the train stations and about a 10-min walk to the shops & restaurants of Oak Park. A very comfortable, clean, and well-furnished room. The breakfast was great and there's a nice area to eat inside or out. Thanks for such an enjoyable stay, Beth!
We stayed 2 nights in the Jimmy Stewart room on the 2nd floor. Room is very large with an all-marble bath. All the amenities! Beth is very welcoming and accommodating. We loved the common room off of the kitchen with the fireplace. It's well designed and you would never know it was added on to the older but very well kept home.
We had a wonderful experience! This place is absolutely fantastic. It's so well designed, Beth is kind and friendly, but also gives you your privacy. The house is so incredibly charming, and each little detail is anticipated. We stayed in the Jimmy Stewart suite, and from the towel warmers to the lovely bed linens, every inch of the room was relaxing and comfortable. We will definitely be staying here anytime we come to Chicago or Oak Park.
