Our Outdoor Dining and Private Party Space:

The floor-to-ceiling dining room windows look out onto a four-season garden that is as picturesque as a movie set. The charming scene is broken into three distinct terraces that move the eye upwards toward the trees and bordering forest preserve where deer and wildlife frolic throughout the year.

The lowest level of the garden accentuates distinct American style garden to attract a wide range of wildlife and birds. Take a stroll on the stone walkway which winds through the grass leading up to a gentle staircase to the semi-formal garden featuring a picture-perfect gazebo. The path continues up to slow-growth oaks that border the garden and the forest preserve and then curves down to an open-air patio and manicured garden.
