About the Owner

Kate Wainwright; originally from the south coast of England, I moved to Chicago in 1998 with my husband Ashley. We loved the City on arrival, and partifcularly liked Andersonville/ Edgewater where we bought and renovated an old colonial house in 2002. The neighborhood is fun, convenient and friendly, and we now feel very much at home within a warm and eclectic circle of friends. After many years of global travelling for large corporates, I had baby Teddy in 2007 and decided to stop checking myself in and sit on the other side of the fence. Numerous hotel stays have made me realise that travelling is both fun and tiring, and so Magnolia Studios excels at providing essential comforts. We aim to send you home feeling relaxed and refreshed after sleeping in super comfortable beds, and after being in a vintage building that is private, relaxing and completely renovated. We're on hand to help with any aspect of your stay, or if you know your way around, we just let you enjoy.

Close, but not too close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property! Quiet & beautiful street just blocks from everything we need. We stayed 3 nights and walked to breakfast(Nookies), the Bryn Mawr train station just about 5 minute walk. We took advantage of the garage and our drive downtown the "LOOP" took about 15 minutes(no traffic) with easy access to the main thoroughfares. We used to live in Andersonville and we were just a short drive or 10 minute walk. The Swedish Bakery, Kopi Cafe and Reza's which are worth worth the trip. Kate, the proprietor, was so accommodating and welcoming. The unit was very clean and nicely supplied. It has its own entry which made it comfortable to come and go as our schedule dictated. Unit overlooks amazing and lush courtyard garden. I hate to give this great review because I want this unit to be available whenever I am in town.

Quiet location

  • 3 of 5

Located in a pleasant, tree-lined and quiet suburban street, this studio is up one flight of stairs. The kitchen is small, but adequate, and the shower works nicely. There is sufficient storage space. It’s a 10-minute walk to a very good supermarket and there are some restaurants in the area. The train station is an accessible 5-minute walk away and is on a useful line, which will get you to the CBD in about 25 minutes. The owner is nearby and is readily available if needed.

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how great this place and its owner was. Very nice, clean space, quite relaxing, very quiet. The kitchenette was very well equipped, and everything about the place was comfortable. I had not initially reserved a space in the garage, but when I got in late at night, I could not find a parking space to save my life. I called the owner, and she very graciously came out and opened the garage for me, even though it was late. She could not have been kinder or more welcoming. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Magnolia Studios is in Edgewater/ Andersonville which is a lakefront community area on the North Side of the city of Chicago. It is one of Chicago's most historic and yet funky neighborhoods. With some of Chicago's best restaurant and bar experiences nearby. Whether you choose the HopLeaf pub (voted no.1 beer pub in Chicago) or one our favorites, Ras Daschen truly excellent Ethiopian cuisine.

We are 5 minutes from the Beach and the Lake Shore pathway. We are also within very easy access to the city center which can be reached easily by train or car.
