Deer Path Inn
From roaring stone fireplaces to hallways lined with wellies in eager anticipation of a soggy Lake Forest day, the mannerly traditions of English innkeeping come brilliantly to life at the newly restored Deer Path Inn. Reminiscent of a 15th century Tudor manor, our landmark 1929 inn on Chicago’s North Shore has charmed generations of guests, whether they’re dropping around for afternoon tea, tying the knot in our English garden, or giving in to a jolly good weekend of Wodehouse-inspired revelry.

A smashing Sunday Brunch in the English Room, a traditional afternoon tea service worthy of a reigning monarch, an old-world English pub to rival any you’d find across the pond. For nearly a century, the Deer Path Inn has set the standard for dining in Lake Forest.
