We're home base for ...Moreanyone visiting Northwestern University; those looking to escape for a refreshing weekend on the waterfront or those wanting to explore the eclectic variety of entertainment and shopping that exist in abundance both in Evanston and nearby downtown Chicago. Our Grand Opening occurred on October 30, 2014. From the start, Stone Porch by the Lake focused carefully on our service; providing each guest with the ultimate, personalized concierge experience. In terms of our environment, we embrace the past while integrating an exciting new wave of 21st century innovation. Our B&B is powered by geothermal energy and offers flat screen TVs in every room, en suite spa bathrooms with heated floors and towel racks; wifi, bedside phone docks; plush robes and H20 Plus Acquatics shower amenities. Guests have 24/7 access to a private office with a lending library and a guest kitchen fully stocked with fresh fruit juices, water, yogurt, energy bars and cereals. A hot gourmet breakfast is served every morning in our private dining room that features turn-of-the-20th century cut crystal Waterford chandeliers and stunning views of Lake Michigan. Like the rest of the house, our living room is designed for total relaxation and features a Samsung ultra HD 4K resolution curved screen TV with cinema-sound. Football games have never looked or sounded better! Indoor, on-site heated garage parking is available for $25 per night. Whole house rentals are available for $2,00.00 per night with a two-night minimum. Guests can work off every indulgence with access to a nearby athletic center with olympic sized pool, running track and state-of-the-art gym. Walk, run or bike along the lakefront path that's right across the street, or kick back and watch the world go by from a rocking chair on the front porch. And in winter, there's lakeside ice skating at the Arrington Lagoon, also right across the street. Guests enjoy full access to private outdoor grounds and a huge bluestone slate patio in our backyard, which features a 15-foot tall brick fireplace, couches, chairs and ottomans - the perfect backdrop for chilling out with a glass of wine or firing up some S'mores. Life is great by the lake - so come and join us when you can! Less
