We stayed two nights at the Deer Path Inn in Lake Forest, Illinois. It was truly incredible! The Inn has been completely renovated, it is beautiful. The staff remembered our names as we went in and out of the Inn! Our room was so very comfortable, bed was great, the layout was very efficient, and made the room feel larger...

When we walked in, we were in awe. They update and transformed the Inn and left the English charm intact. The brunch was fantastic. Service was great. We...

My daughter was looking at Lake Forest and needed a place to stay near the campus. Very impressed. Room was beautiful and spacious. Great shower and loved the towel warming rack in the bathroom. Staff was friendly and restaurants were delish as well. Will return for sure if daughter attends College at Lake Forest. Highly recommend this newly renovated Inn.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For over 85 years, the Deer Path Inn has set the standard for exceptional dining and hotel accommodations on Chicago's North Shore. Styled after a 15th century English manor house, the inn's thick oak beams and warm stucco walls have long been a landmark of hospitality and local charm in the Lake Forest community. Now, having completed a true floor-to-ceiling renaissance, we have brought the finest 21st century amenities to our historic Lake Forest inn, while preserving all the romantic character of its classic English architecture. We believe you'll find the unique combination of new amenities and Old World charm and service nothing short of brilliant. ... more   less
