Your Exceptional Countryside
Convenient to the city yet a world away, country-fresh air and the nearby wide-open prairie are ready to set the scene for a distinctive experience that leaves you with irreplaceable memories. Host your next event, gathering or meeting at our destination countryside retreat.
The first floor of the Inn features an adjoining dining room and dining porch. The dining room accommodates up to 16 guests seated, and the dining porch up to 40 guests. The perfect outdoor wedding venue near Chicago and a backdrop for retreats, reunions and corporate events unlike any other, our patio — featuring a spectacular fireplace — is surrounded by native prairie gardens and our lawn can accommodate up to 125 guests for seasonal events. We have space for up to 14 overnight guests.
Both outdoor and indoor grounds can be configured to suit your event needs, whether it’s a small family reunion or a large outdoor wedding. Our Carriage House has free heated indoor parking for overnight guests, and we have 20 spaces for onsite parking with additional large event parking right across the street. The minimum rental time is five hours for events and one night for overnight stays.
A bounty of local event vendors — from catering, photography, bakeries, florists and more — are available to help create the perfect event.
Many events, one striking venue
The one-of-a-kind spirit of the countryside makes any event stand out. Our venue can accommodate up to 125 for outdoor events, 40 in the main house and 30 in the Carriage House loft.
