Couldn’t have asked for a better venue for our intimate wedding! We loved having the Bach and Lang Houses as our home base for the weekend, and had our family by our sides during such an important time.
The properties are beautiful, timeless, perfect for guests of all ages, and fully equipped with any and all amenities you could ask for.
The team with the venue was wonderful - we planned the wedding from New Orleans but knowing that we had their support made planning from afar much less stressful than you might imagine.
All in all, a perfect weekend in a perfect location!Sent on 06/03/2021

Wedding and lodging at Emil Bach House
My wife and I had our wedding here recently, with us staying in the Emil Bach House and our families staying next door in the Lang House. Everything was spectacular, from the properties themselves to the team who helped us every step of the way (shout out to Peggy, Eric and the rest of the staff, who couldn't have been more wonderful throughout the weekend). I would highly recommend both the Emil Bach House and Lang House for your next special event. Our wedding was truly special, and these properties (including their amazing grounds in the back!) were a big part of it. Thank you!Sent on 10/21/2019

The most perfect, fun, unique, and special venue in Chicago!
Peggy Murphy and her staff went above and beyond to make our wedding the perfect day. From day one she took the time to answer all our questions, she put us in touch with vendors who were familiar with the grounds, and she helped us coordinate the big day making the daunting task of planning a wedding much more manageable. The venue itself was absolutely gorgeous from the historic architecture to the backyard space with the amazing large tent and it provided not only a perfect area for the rehearsal, ceremony, and reception, but also a location for the bridal party and us to stay during our wedding weekend. It was so convenient and so much fun to be at the same place all weekend. All our guests absolutely loved the space and commented on how fun and unique it was. Emil Bach House/Lang House was the first and only venue we looked at. Everyone said we would regret not at least looking at other places, but we knew we would never find anything we loved more. Everyone who told us that ate their words when they got to our wedding and saw how amazing and beautiful everything turned out. Our wedding weekend was everything we could have asked for and more and we cannot recommend the Emil Bach House and Lang House enough!"Sent on 09/13/2019
