I have never been a big fan of B&B's...but Ravinia Guest House has changed my mind. My husband and I and another couple wanted to go to a concert at Ravinia but did not want to drive home afterward. So, we booked the Ravinia Guest House. What a pleasant surprise that was. The house and the guest rooms are truly... More

As luck would have it, Ravinia was hosting a concert my husband would love on our anniversary. However, our first visit to Ravinia was overshadowed by driving and parking issues. So I decided to look for a B & B. Ravinia Guest House was perfect in every way. A quick walk from Ravinia, and a lovely lake shore walk, super... More

I will echo the comments of some of the previous reviewers. This is a fine place to stay. My friend and I have stayed here twice in the past week to attend concerts at Ravinia, with a trip to Upper Michigan sandwiched in between. The Pearlmans are lovely folks and they run a quality establishment. Yes, the house is old... More

The Ravinia Guest House is an ideal place to stay in the Chicagoland area. The Highland Park area is incredibly beautiful and one of the safest areas in the metro area. It is very easy to drive down Sheridan Road or take the metro to get into the city. Regarding the parking space: if you can't back out of this... More

We have stayed at a ton of B&B's in our time, but our experience at the Ravinia Guest House has been second to none. This B&B is what I expect other B&B's to be - old school, relaxed, you feel like you are at home. A home that is shared... FYI - the apple pancake rocks and if you can... More

We needed a nice quiet place to stay during a family re-union and this fit the requirement for stress free oasis. It has the feel of being a guest in someone’s home. Home is around 90 years old so expect creaking floor and quirky occurrences (like a tripped circuit breaker). But it adds to the charm. The room was sunny... More

After dropping my son off at Notre Dame in Indiana, my fiancé wanted to introduce me to his north county roots and selected a B&B close to Winnetka, Illinois. First, my preference is the privacy and independence of a nice hotel, or the cottage B&B system I experienced in the past. This was more like being a guest in someone’s... More

This BB has a great location and great owners. The breakfast of apple pancakes, abundant coffee, and casual conversation will encourage us to rebook when exploring Chicago again It’s an easy walk to the Ravinia Music Festival, Lake Michigan, and the Metra Station into Chicago. It’s located deep in the classic residential neighborhood of Highland Park. You can walk the... More

My boyfriend and I wanted to get away from the city for a night and we found this online. The reviews sounded great so talked with the owners and booked it. It was easily accessible from the train (Metra) and set in a beautiful residential neighborhood. The owners were so sweet and welcoming, an the room was adorable. Everything was... More

I am waiting to return to this lovely private enclave in the whirlwind of Chicago. Staying here is like being a cherished guest in a private home. The breakfasts are ample, home cooked, and elegant. The rooms are sunny, all ementities provided, and wonderful bedding. Decor is for want of a better word: old world class. Love this bed and... More
