    There's no place like The Deer Path Inn

    The Deer Path Inn provided the most magical setting for our wedding reception! Mary Ellen is a pleasure to work with and her team operates under the highest standards and levels of service. They will work with you on every detail. There are many different ways you can set up your event to create your ideal reception. Bonus that the hotel and suites are the highest levels of luxury and you can't beat having that right on site. The bridal suite even has a private elevator that goes directly outside of the reception hall. Not to mention.... Deer Path has some of the most delicious food options, be sure to try their Bar and English Room restaurants for a preview of what they have to offer! We cannot say enough wonderful things about the Deer Path - many of our friends complimented that it was the best wedding they've ever attended!

    Incredible Food & Very Responsive!

    We held our rehearsal dinner here. Mary Ellen was great from beginning to end. She answered all of my questions so quickly, and she was great at keeping in touch and following up. During our rehearsal dinner, the staff was amazing. The food was out-of-this-world good. They even stored our stuff the night before the rehearsal dinner. I would recommend using this venue if you are looking to host a classy rehearsal dinner in Lake Forest.
