Once again, a fantastic stay in Chicago. Bill and Jim really go above and beyond!

We had a fantastic time in Chicago. Bill and Jim were friendly, helpful and hospitable. We only stayed a couple of days, but felt right at home immediately. We definitely recommend swapping with them and have no reservations about letting them stay our my home.

This was the greatest experience Ive had in a very long time. Bill and Jim were both, great host! Bill met me at the train, and brought me to their lovely carriage home. I got settled in and started exploring, and then the next morning Bill introduce me to Jim, in the back garden with coffee and sweet rolls that were freshly baked and homemade! The two of them are wonderful, their carriage home is lovely, and they were so kind and accommodating. I'm glad that they had an equally good time staying in my New York apartment. I look forward to swapping with them every year!
