- Right on the shore of Lake Michigan, this historic spot was the location of the 1933-34 World’s Fair, and boasts stunning views of both the lake and the glittering Chicago skyline.
- With its charming turret and sweeping surround of lush meadows, the building welcomes guests with a timeless, vintage feel. Inside, you’ll find a warm, light-filled interior of stone and wood, including gorgeous exposed ceiling trusses.
- The back terrace offers a beautiful panorama of the water and city, and makes a wonderful location for your ceremony or cocktails. Rental rates are very reasonable, and help support the Chicago Parks department, which stewards this and other significant local sites.
