    Amazing venue for a wedding!

    We had both our wedding ceremony and reception at the Deer Path Inn and highly recommend this venue! Mary Ellen at the Deer Path Inn is fantastic, she was always available to assist with any wedding need or question leading up to and on the big day. The staff created a warm and welcoming atmosphere for our guests during the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. The food is delicious, all of our guests could not stop raving about how great their meals were. Overall, this is a wonderful and elegant venue that has such a warm, homey feel. The rooms and outdoor spaces are beautiful, and served as lovely backdrops for our pictures.

    The best venue!

    My husband and I had our winter wonderland wedding (ceremony & reception) at the Deer Path Inn last month. We also stayed at the Inn the night before/after the wedding. We had our absolute dream wedding!

    Mary Ellen and her entire team were attentive, professional, organized and so easy to work with. They went above and beyond to assure everything was beyond our expectations for our special day and it absolutely was.

    More than that, the whole staff at the Deer Path Inn (from the valet to the Concierge to the cleaning team) was amazing - the service here is truly unparalleled.

    Not only were we so impressed, but our guests were as well. We received SO many compliments about the venue (every last detail of the architecture, decor, and the layout is well thought out), the food, the service, the bathrooms.. the list goes on.

    We are so thankful for everything Mary Ellen and her team did to assure our wedding was perfect!

    A timeless venue set in one of Lake countys most beautiful towns, Lake Forest. Deerpath Inn is a great venue to have either an intimate wedding out on their private terrace, or a large scale reception in the private ball room. The staff throughout the Inn is ready and willing to do what it takes for your day to be spectacular.
