Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Set on two acres of impeccably manicured grounds in the Historic District of Oak Park, the 12,000-square-foot Cheney Mansion is reminiscent of an English country home.
  • Wedding receptions can be held in any of several rooms in the mansion, as well as outdoors on the greenhouse patio or expansive lawns. A tent can be set up for a large group, too. And from the grand staircase in the main house to the gorgeous landscaping, your photographer will find plenty of wonderful photo opportunities.
  • Your rental comes with some nice amenities: a bride's room and groom's room, on-site parking, and the Mansion's staff on hand to assist with your event.
