Deer Path Inn – The Hidden Gem of Chicago’s North Shore
Nestled in the bucolic town on Lake Forest, 27 miles north of Chicago, is where you will find the boutique hotel, Deer Path Inn. Entering this historic inn is like stepping back in time to a charming English manor house, with its elegant public rooms just begging for guests to stop and linger. Rated the #1 hotel in the Midwest by Travel & Leisure, the Deer Path Inn has a lovely old-world décor that is both quaint and romantic. In addition to these exquisite spaces, guests can expect stellar service and exceptional cuisine.

The award-winning experience of The Deer Path Inn starts upon entering as guests are invited to relax in front of the lobby fireplace (which also offers bottled water, freshly baked cookies, and butterscotch candies). Their famous afternoon tea is served in the English Room restaurant and is a must-do. The Deer Path Inn also offers dining options in their White Hart Pub and outside courtyard.

While staying at Deer Path Inn, you are just a train ride away from all the sights and sounds of downtown Chicago, knowing that at the end of the day your peaceful oasis awaits your return.
