Stone Porch

Comfortable Luxury with the Intimacy of Home

A historic Tudor mansion built in 1889, Stone Porch by the Lake welcomes visitors to a meticulously restored historical gem that makes the past present. This stately Tudor Revival ushers in a new wave of 21st century refinement with stunning modern amenities.

All five guest rooms have en suite bathrooms with heated floors and towel racks, and every guest enjoys full use of our grounds, which include a large bluestone patio and 15-foot fireplace.

Stone Porch by the Lake sits across the street from the glistening shores of Lake Michigan and is fronted by an exercise path that stretches for miles along the lakefront. Two blocks to the north is the campus of world-renowned Northwestern University; three blocks to the west is eclectic downtown Evanston, with highly-rated restaurants and boutique shops.

Evanston is also the gateway to Chicago. World-class shopping on the Magnificent Mile is a 30-minute drive by car or a 40-minute ride via local transportation on local Metra and El trains.
