6 month summer rental

I'm looking for a 6 month rental for summer, 2015.  I want to be upfront from the start--I have 3 dogs.  I have many references who will attest to the dogs' behavior, cleanliness, etc. and I have my house(s) cleaned every other week.  I am looking in the Oak Park area, but it does not have to be Oak Park--the surrounding area(s) works as well.  I'd love to hear from anyone who might be able to help.  Thank you!See More

"To be sure, the vast majority of them will probably live in Chicago, but those with school-aged kids or partners who work in the western suburbs might find Oak Park attractive.  "
