Hotels & Motels

For over 85 years, the Deer Path Inn has set the standard for exceptional dining and hotel accommodations on Chicago’s North Shore.

The historic hotel was 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 hotel, 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.
