Houseguests suck. They invade your space, rifle through your medicine cabinets and engage in awkward three-ways with the lawn guy and your boyfriend. (That’s a purely hypothetical situation, of course).
But it is fun to have your friends and family come to visit. Just maybe not within earshot of your twice-hourly nocturnal monkey business.
Well, your prayers have been answered thanks to a stunning little B&B in the heart of Oak Lawn (just steps from many of the bars).
The Daisy Polk Inn is a gorgeous home built in 1909 that’s been lovingly restored by owner Wayne Falcone (and a team of talented designers and craftsmen) with plenty of authentic Arts & Crafts touches throughout. Named after Daisy Polk, a singer who entertained troops during WWII, the home has a welcoming quality that you won’t find at the nearest Best Western.
Cozy and well-appointed, each room in the main house and the cottage next door has its own private bathroom, crisp sheets and comfy mattresses.
But it’s the delectable homemade pastries and other treats baked fresh for breakfast that are worth the price of your stay.
Nightly rates are a true bargain, beginning at just $139 for the smaller suites and $169 for the big ’uns.
So next time your mom pops in “unexpectedly,” kiss her on the cheek and take her by the hand to the front door of the Daisy Polk. She’ll sleep better than on your college futon, and you will, too.
