Located in Andersonville
House 5863 B&B

Andersonville is a diverse community with varying ethnic groups linked together in a charming and delightful mosaic. This area is distinctive, different and ideal for the visitor who wants more than the usual Chicago excursions to Buckingham Fountain, Water Tower Place and Millennium Park. You can get to Chicago’s main attractions easily enough by El, bus or cab, but you can also enjoy what’s right here in Andersonville.

Find locally-owned shops and boutiques next door to quaint brunch spots, Middle Eastern bakeries, hip bars and gastro-pubs. There is still a strong Scandinavian presence here and the neighborhood is also known for vibrant gay and lesbian communities and an accepting, open attitude about life.

Among the many restaurants: the Icosium Kafe features sensational crêpes and Reza’s (Persian) offers a mean (nice) Gheimeh Badenjan.   In winter, take the chill off the Chicago weather with a glass of grog at Andie’s. In a cultural mood? Take in the Edgewater Historical Society and Museum, Las Manos Gallery or the Swedish American Museum. And for nightlife, you’ll find things always hopping at Hopleaf and Atmosphere.

Here’s Where to Stay B&B-Wise
It’s always wise to book your stay at a charming and quaint Chicago Bed and Breakfast versus a cold, indifferent, downtown Chicago hotel. That’s especially true when you stay for one night or several at House 5863 B&B. This super-comfortable and convenient B&B is located on the north lakefront. Check it out, and then check in. You can count on gracious hospitality to go along with the superb location.

Take advantage of everything that diverse and delightful Andersonville offers.
