The Deer Path Inn

255 E. Illinois Rd. (Western Ave.) Lake Forest IL

This historic North Shore haven features genteel traditional style and a relaxed setting.

Anglophiles will appreciate the traditional English hospitality of the Deer Path Inn. This historic hotel has been updated for modern comfort, but still remains true to the bespoke British architecture and service that well-heeled guests have come to know and love since 1929, when it was built in the style of a 15th-century manor house on the grounds of a former hunting cabin. Although the Provincial and Noble guest rooms and Manor House and Cornwall suites have been modernized to offer 21st-century creature comforts such as luxury bedding and stone-clad bathrooms with glass showers and separate water closets, there’s no mistaking the English character that gives these accommodations their distinctive style and grace. The property also maintains a formal English garden, a modern fitness facility and top-shelf dining options. The English Room is a North Shore favorite with its sophisticated menu and style, while the White Hart Pub offers a classic English pub experience. Guests can also enjoy traditional Afternoon Tea, and butlers and limousine services are available upon request.
