Beautiful in any season, the community of Lake Forest, Illinois, is located 31 miles north of the City of Chicago on the west shore of Lake Michigan.

Chartered in 1861, The City of Lake Forest is home to prestigious businesses and residential locations and offers many excellent schools and cultural opportunities.

Our Host Hotel is the Deer Path Inn
A stunning display of architecture and upscale style of service in a historic Manor House (c.1453) building, the Deer Path Inn is the perfect place to gather, work or relax. Located near Lake Forest’s Historic Market Square District, the Deer Path Inn debuted in 1929 as a popular pastoral retreat for Chicagoans. Modeled after a mid-15th century Manor house in Chiddingstone, Kent, England, the half-timber and stuccoed Tudor-style inn features authentic detailing including stone fireplaces, leaded windows, and beamed ceilings. Each of the inn’s guestrooms is individually decorated and named after a National Trust of England Site. Rates are $155-245, depending on the room type. Please mention that you are with Venus de Miles for the preferred room rate.
