The House of Two Urns was started in 1991 by Kapra Fleming, video artist and photographer, more by chance than by design. With one guestroom she gradually expanded as her family did with husband, Miguel, joining her and in 2002 he purchased a nearby building that also has B&B guestrooms. Miguel, an extremely multi-talented artist, sculptor, printmaker, photographer and poet has many of his artworks for sale in the Two Urns gift shop. More Info
A side garden to the main inn produces lots of fresh berries, fruit, herbs, tomatoes and greens that grace the breakfast table during growing season and as jams year round. Where else in Chicago can you sit and watch the fruit grow and spread it on some yummy bread the next morning? Some of the jams include, black raspberry, apricot, currant, gooseberry, strawberry, blackberry and blueberry – all made by Kapra from garden-grown fruits.
We welcome you to our artistically unique home and to garden-fresh goodness every morning!
