Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Dating to the early 1900s, this stately building has served as home to the Kenosha Elks Club and the Heritage House Inn. Now beautifully renovated and the only full-service hotel in Kenosha, it features gorgeously preserved historic detailing blended with a distinct, contemporary flair.
  • The stunning ballroom is a one-of-a-kind treasure, with a soaring ceiling, unique Renaissance-inspired candelabra chandeliers, blond hardwood flooring, and tons of natural light streaming through a full wall of floor-to-ceiling arched windows.
  • Your overnight guests will adore these swoon-worthy accommodations—we’re especially smitten with the one-bedroom Heritage Suites, with their cute kitchenettes, vintage décor, and views of either the harbor or downtown.
