This is now the Lang House, formerly Cat’s Cradle. Very clean, quiet, and soothing. It’s like an oasis of calm and luxury. It’s quite cozy if you want to stay in and read or just a block from the lake if you want to go to the beach. Close enough to Loyola that if you have a child going there, it’s the perfect place to stay if you're coming up for homecoming or parent's weekend, etc. It's also beautifully decorated at the holidays. The prairie style architecture is authentic and the décor is quite beautiful inside – fits right in with the period. There’s a Frank Lloyd Wright house next door that has been restored. I think this was the last urban house Wright designed – it was on the Chicago architectural tour this fall. The train station is a five minute walk – about a block away, and there is also a very close express Lake Shore bus stop that takes you right down to Miracle Mile. Coming back on this bus, you are dropped right in front of the building. How great is that if your arms are full of bags? Has a few very nice restaurants and bars like the Public House (can walk to it – try the grapefruit beer, Stiegl Radler; very refreshing in the summer). The innkeepers are new – just took over a couple of months ago, and are very friendly and know the city and history of the house and the period well. Highly recommended.
