“Like staying with your favorite uncle.”
Reviewed 20 January 2012

Approaching the outside of Ray's was a bit off-putting--not a cutesy bungalow look--but after we were very warmly greeted at the door we felt that we could not be more welcome at any other place. Ray and his staff exist to please, just as though we were their most beloved relatives. All of accolades about food, location, parking, quiet, cleanliness, and comfort are well-deserved. We're already eager to return.

We have stayed here twice on overnight visits to Chicago to see shows. The pricing is fair, location is fun (walkable to Bucktown, nearby shops, close to other neighborhoods). Beds and rooms are comfortable, clean, if on the small side for the budget rooms. Have some fun modern perks like heated floors in the bathrooms, steam room, etc.

Staff is friendly and helpful, breakfasts are delicious. Well worth the value. Also easy street parking, never had a problem. Would go back again. :)

I can not tell you enough how amazing this place was. It was literally the best B&B I have ever been too. We travel often and try to support local business by staying in B&B's. You sometimes hit a bump or two in the road with either weird people or just not what you would like...not the case here. The place was clean, warm and inviting. The amazing collections gave you something to look at or you could curl up on the many cozy couches with a good book. If you care coming to Chicago stay here!

Not your mother's B&B. Looks like nothing from the outside. Inside, the place is fascinating, reflecting the caffeinated personality of Ray, the owner. Ray is friendly, informal and very customer service oriented. He is also a collector, and his well-organized stuff is everywhere. Our room was comfy and the breakfast was the best I have ever had at a B&B. The omelets are to die for! Parking was easy on the street. Interesting neighborhood.

Ray and his staff were the greatest! Loved being able to ditch the car on a street and explore Bucktown, take a $17 taxi downtown instead of parking for even more money. The place is delightful and comfortable and breakfasts are amazing.

Stayed October 2011, travelled with friends
