Our urban farm is smack in the middle of Chicago only a 10 minute bike or train ride from Downtown, Lake Michigan, The Mag Mile and all Chicago has to offer!

Eli and I decided to stay with Nicky on her farm after seeing the pictures of goats and the reasonable pricing for a place to stay on the outskirts of downtown Chicago. It is fair to say that our three nights spent at The Vaudeville exceeded our expectation. We arrived late at night on a Friday and was able to park our car within the enclosed campsite. We walked a couple blocks to reach the L metro system which was very accessible. Within 20 minutes we were in the heart of Chicago. The site is very unique and comfortable. In the morning Nicky greeted us and her very kind neighbors began to funnel in for coffee. If you are more of an introverted camper you can definitely make your own space and do what you will independently. If you want to get a more social experience from this site that is also very possible. There was a gas stove, grill, and smoker outside accessible to guests. The porta-potty was spotless and well-kept. Nicky is very respectful, hilarious, and kind. It is safe to say she was born to be a host. Definitely will stay again one day!

Was a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of the big city! Gracious and accommodating host with some lively goats and some wonderful four legged neighbors. 10/10 would camp again! And if you are in town on a Thursday they have a stage ready to rock With live music!!

If you’re in for an adventure, this is the place! The location is perfect. This city is easily accessible by bike or the CTA. Plenty of night life near by as well. Nicky was an amazing hostess. I can’t wait to come back!

I absolutely love staying with Nicky! This past trip was my 2nd time staying on the farm. It is easily accessible, and Nicky and her neighbors are more than happy to let you know about great spots to explore in the area. The farm itself is super cute and well-maintained. I love the goats :) You have the opportunity to spend some time having fires at the fire pits; there are plenty of spots to charge your phone; and spending time with Nicky having a drink or a chat was a real treat. I highly recommend The Vaudeville! Urban Farm and hope to stay there more in the future!

Day of arrival the host mentioned we could not check-in until 10:30pm. At 2:00am I asked the host how long the sing along, didgeridoo and drums would be playing next to our tent (her listing says music typically can go until 11:30pm and we didn’t ever ask her to stop the music, just wanted an expectation of when we could sleep). Her text response (below) to me was a better explanation of what to expect at Vauderville! Urban Farm Fun than the listing states.

Hosts text response: “It is "typically". But it also says there are pop up music events. We don't expect you to book with us but if you do so, you do it with the knowledge (which we have spelled out in the listing) that many different and amazing things may occur. We had a world class musician come through which was a one in a wild moon opportunity and a gift to all who had the opportunity to hear. You have the option to book your accommodations anywhere. While we are pleased and grateful you chose us, we are explicit about what you may encounter. If the very explicit, up for grabs situations aren't within your comfort zone, you should book other accommodations rather than bend the experience of many to the wishes of few. We also don't have to let our space be available. And if people abuse the opportunity and privilege, it will cease to be available. You are guest at our discretion. We aren't obligated to host you beyond the explicit parameters or our listing. Please be good Stewarts of the openness of others to open their environments to you. It's not an entitlement.”
