Fran and Errol, who run the Guesthouse, are great. Thanks to both of them for their hospitality. The breakfast is gorgeous, the rooms are wonderful, the area is quiet and safe. 1 hour trip by train to down town Chicago.

We had the delightful experience of staying at The Ravinia Guest House after a Bonnie Raitt concert this September at Ravinia. Instead of fighting the traffic, we simply walked a few blocks back to our lovely room where a small bottle of champagne and chocolates were waiting outside our door. The hosts are most welcoming and not only helped us...

Sometimes, we pick a B&B rather than a hotel because we want to experience some of the local flavor of the town we are visiting. Of course there is no pool, ice machine, gym etc... What there is to enjoy is a warm and comfortable historical home in a peaceful part of town walking distance from the lake, park and...

Great location, hospitality, and breakfast! 1.5 block to Ravinia's gate. So beats fighting traffic into the parking lot. Fran and Errol are gracious hosts and full of info! This is an majestic very old home with creaky wood floors and smaller guest rooms, however very cosy and otherwise quiet. We recommend checking them out!

Fran and Errol Pearlman were our gracious hosts when my wife Kris and I recently stayed to attend a 2 day seminar in Highland Park, IL. Fran cooked breakfasts that were suitable for my lactose intolerant diet that were healthy, creative, and tasty. The room where we stayed was quiet, clean, and well decorated with antiques. And, the price for...

Thanks to the Pearlmans for running such a pleasant, convenient B&B. Great location, welcoming atmosphere, and superb breakfasts. Clean and comfy. The floors creak, windows are a bit tricky to open, and the air conditioning comes from window units. But very minor quibbles considering the overall warmth and hospitality of the hosts.

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...

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...

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...

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...
