CUARC Welcomes You To Athena’s House

Athena’s House offers affordable, furnished rooms for female travelers seeking a safe, welcoming, and women-only space to call home for a night or for a longer while. Off the beaten path, we are located on a quiet, tree-lined street in the residential neighborhood of North Lawndale on Chicago’s West Side. Athena’s House occupies the top floor of the two-story red brick house that is home to the Chicago Urban Art Retreat Center. Downstairs are the office and the art gallery and art studio which you will have access during your stay.

This non-profit organization was originally founded in 1982 to offer gentle options for under-represented people. Therapeutic art programs have been offered ever since. The organization’s mission is about offering safe, supportive space for you to make improvements in your life. It is a kind environment that encourages you to meet and learn from yourself, and others. The artistic ambiance is unique. Local art hangs on the walls. And once you get settled, you will have complete access to creative workshops, art events, an art studio, a garden, and all of Chicago to explore.

Just review the information, send us an application, and we’ll give you a rate and personally designated retreat program that will meet all of your needs. The rooms have a daily, weekly and monthly rates. We customize our retreats for each person. Some women like to sign up for a lot of extras. Some like go for the minimum- just A Room of Her Own- to spend relaxing time alone. Some like to go for walks to the area park, some want to go downtown for fun, shopping, art galleries, etc. and then come back to an artistic and supportive place to drop on the bed and catch up on her sleep.

You can go food shopping and cook your own meals or you can ask for meal/s to be provided. (However, meals are extra) We try to offer a safe, supportive, quiet place to stay and rejuvenate, although we are in the city and accessible to city life.

Tea and coffee are always free.
