- Staff use shoes that are only for inside the inn.
- Minimum two-night stay, Friday through Sunday.
- For social distancing we recommend six feet between unrelated guests and staff – especially if you are unvaccinated.
- Guests are provided breakfast menus at check-in and are left for us on the front foyer table or via text message the night before.
If you would like to tour the Inn and property in consideration of a future stay or event, tours are by appointment only – they must be scheduled in advance. Tours will be limited to two (2) guests and one staff member. Follow this link for our event inquiry form to submit. After receipt, we will reach out to you to schedule a tour date.
Lincoln Way will follow the guidelines from the Restore Illinois plan for social gatherings. Capacity is fully open, up to 125 guests.
Lincoln Way specializes in hosting custom created events from micro or larger. Hosting an event requires advance planning together, visits, contract and deposits. In order to facilitate expectations, ensure safety and needs of all and other guests on the property, following of required COVID local, state and national protocols as well as necessary proper staffing, we DO NOT accommodate “pop up” style events. This includes wedding ceremonies, wedding attendant getting ready gatherings, or parties. Guests disrespecting this policy will be promptly asked to leave and others on the property escorted out.
