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 home. I do not appreciate apple pancakes; way too rich for my Asian pallet. The bathroom conditions were too cramped and I didn’t like the creaking floors that alerted everyone to our movements and business.
On the positive side, it has great lighting for putting on makeup. I loved the location and neighborhood. The house is located walking distance to Lake Michigan, the Ravinia Music Festival, and a Metra station. It is also easily accessible to Midway Airport. The one-hour drive return to Midway was stress free even during rush hour traffic. The house keepers were very friendly, yet unassuming, but genuinely interested in us as visitors.
