About Ray's


Ray’s Bucktown B&B is situated in Chicago’s vibrant Bucktown neighborhood, an exciting arts and entertainment community. The Bed and Breakfast is modeled after small European hotels and spas, and is located on a quiet, safe, residential street within walking distance of 80+ restaurants, along with one-of-a-kind boutiques, bars, salons and spas.

Ray and his staff will make you feel right at home in one of the 11 distinctive bedrooms. Five in the original building, and 6 in the new North Wing of the building. There is also a sauna, and a steam room. The acclaimed breakfast is cooked-to-order off a menu, and ready whenever you want it in the morning. Additionally, there are daily specials, and the menu features a large variety of fresh ingredients. Special requests and dietary considerations can be accommodated. See breakfast page for more information.

Ray's is located 4.2 miles from downtown in the near northwest neighborhood of Bucktown/Wicker Park. It is 6 blocks away from the Blue Line train that runs between downtown (a 12 minute ride), and O’Hare Airport (a 30 minute ride). If you are driving, it is conveniently located two blocks off I-90/94 (the Kennedy), and offers free parking, with either two garage spaces, or unrestricted street parking.

Each bedroom has a unique design and feel. All bedrooms have a private bathroom, and all are fully furnished with a comfortable bed(s), satellite TV and DVR, robes, hair dryers, and of course all the amenities you find at most B&Bs/hotels.

If you are in town for work, or simply like to keep in touch, you will appreciate that not only does Ray's offer free WIFI, but business travelers and guests are welcome to make use of the reception area, which has a guest computer (Mac). It is always on for guests to use, and it is connected to color and B&W printers, a fax machine, and a color copier.

The community areas are available for use by all guests, and include comfortable living rooms, a steam room, sauna, kitchen, and HDTV viewing area. This is not your parents’ Bed & Breakfast!

Whether in town for work or play, Ray’s Bucktown Bed and Breakfast will strive to make your trip to Chicago as enjoyable as possible!
