  • This lovingly restored 19th-century manor, located 54 miles southeast of Chicago, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The current owners have skillfully preserved the simple elegance established by Lewis Steward, who also founded the surrounding town of Plano.
  • The labyrinth offers a stunning spot for a walk down the aisle, or you could hold an intimate ceremony within their chapel. And the meticulously landscaped grounds provide additional space for a large celebration.
  • You can reserve the entire property, which features a bed and breakfast that can accommodate up to 12 guests. The guest rooms are filled with traditional décor and modern luxuries, including fine linens and radiant floor heating.
