Historical Traveler Reviews Flemish House of Chicago
Wonderul Chicago Secret
I found the perfect home away from home. The Flemish Inn is in the perfect Gold Coast area of Chicago. What a great place. The rooms are decorated lovely and have a small kitchen area.
Southern Hospitality In Chicago!!!
Our recent stay at the Flemish house was an unexpected treat. The rates were reasonable for such a charming location just a few short blocks from the Magnificent Mile shopping district and you can catch the CTA bus or el train nearby to just about anywhere in the city. The bonus was the delightful proprieters and their cat Timmy. We will definitely stay with them on our future visits!

Better than any hotel!
I've stayed in some expensive hotels, but none was ever better than the Flemish House of Chicago. It's a beautifully restored rowhouse which has been divided into several small apartments. For the price of a hotel room I got an immaculate 1 BR apartment, with a kitchen stocked with breakfast items (I stayed in the 1st floor front apt). Vintage furnishings, Oriental carpets, period sconces, bookcases stocked with interesting old books, and an extremely comfortable queen size bed made it cozy and comfortable. I have never stayed anywhere that was so clean. All kinds of little items are thoughtfully provided for the traveller----cupboards containing things like an iron, a hair dryer, a few safety pins, extra towels linens and pillows, and extra candles for the fireplaces. Two fireplaces are in the unit, and while they are nonworking, they contain candles and a little mirror that causes the fireplace to glow with a very cozy warmth. One of the fireplaces is in the bedrooom and provided the most pleasant drowsy moments. The proprietors are wonderful people. They tend to leave the guests to themselves; they enter the unit only to replenish food etc. The location is ideal. I only wish there was something like the Flemish House in every city I travel to, including my home city of New York.
There just aren't enough stars for this place!
Treat yourself to a great time!
What a treat! Our room was spacious and comfortable. The location was prime and offered convenient access to the city. There are plenty of wonderful restaurants and shops within walking distance.
Great place to stay very near North
We had a truly wonderful time. The accomodations are great. Mike and Tom are helpful, available, but respect your privacy. The location of Flemish House makes it attractive even to precocious 12 year olds.
Timmy the cat is worth the trip!
If you want perfection - this is it!!
We found this B & B on the internet 4 years ago and have visited Chicago every year since just to stay there again. The ambiance, decor and location are all sublime and the hosts Tom and Mike are simply wonderful. They are the perfect mix of supremely helpful yet unobtrusive. The property is minutes away from the Magnificent Mile and in a wonderful neighbourhood. We have stayed in the first floor rear studio, and the second and third floor apartments. All are magnificent.
I cannot say a single bad thing about this place, and yes.... we do intend to visit again next year!!
A Finer B&B You Will Not Find
I like to stay at B&Bs when travelling and Flemish House is definitely top tier. The superb accomodation, affordable price and central location (just a short walk to the Magnificent Mile) make it a "must stay" when in Chicago. What stands out most in my mind is the attention to detail in the room and the friendly and helpful nature of hosts Tom and Mike. One of the few times in life where reality has exceeded my expectations! A great Inn.
Why stay anywhere else?
If you want to know the definition of a "great place to stay", you need look no further than this facility. The owners also understand and give new meaning to the words "highest quality", customer service" and "great location". Located steps away from Rush Street in downtown Chicago, this is one of the best facilities I have ever stayed. I travel to Chicago often and from now on, will stay no where else. All Rooms are great. The price for downtown is 'beyond' reasonable'.
I travel quite a bit and most places I stay are non-descript. I often look for value and quality and rarely find it. I have now found it in Chicago at The Flemish House.
This is the most beautiful B&B I've ever stayed at. Offers plenty of privacy (no group breakfasts!) and comfortable surroundings. Excellent location for all of Chicago's site seeing and eating.
Flemish House is a fine choice
A wonderfull neighborhood, close to everything you need on a Chicago visit.
Tom & Mike make you feel at home. All the conveniences of your ouwn apartment.
Beautifully decorated rooms.

... American Shetlands, with foals, for the kids to ride and drive, and standard breeds to pull the buggy. The saddle riding horse was a Pinto American saddlebred. Also in the barn they had Beagle X puppies, several of which we got to cuddle. These really wanted to be picked up and yelled if you put them down again. Katelyn had to stand with a couple cuddled at a time to keep them quiet so we could hear our guide talk. Also for pets they had bantams with babies and rabbits. When ...

... His reply was that parking is "a tough gig in Chicago." He said we would have the best luck in an area called the Near North Side. So google maps got us to the Near North Side where we promptly found a parking place. On the street. And the parking was free! It seemed too good to be true. We looked at every sign up and down the street and saw nothing to indicate that we would have to pay or that it was reserved parking or that we would be towed. So we parked at the corner ...
