The House

Evanston’s finest
historic mansion

Built in 1883, Stone Terrace has been carefully and thoughtfully restored with contemporary accommodations that place you at the meeting point of past and progress, of old-world sophistication and 21st-century convenience.

Experience luxury at every turn. In the library, immerse yourself in comfort as you work or relax by our impressive collection of literature. In each room, find ornate Persian rugs that inspired the room’s individual design. Replicas of the rugs are available for purchase.

Enjoy our guest center with a coffee maker, refrigerator, wine cooler and ice maker. Behold a stunning view of Lake Michigan in the library or the living room and its adjoining sunroom. Create memories over shared meals in the formal dining room. Take in the open air on the outdoor stone terrace and in the perennial gardens just steps from walking and biking paths on Lake Michigan.

Complete with five guest suites, an exercise room, billiard room, entertainment center and massage room, this boutique bed and breakfast will charm you as we serve your every need.

Refine your stay
by Lake Michigan

Perfectly situated for walkers, runners and bicyclists, Stone Terrace sits across the street from the trail along Lake Michigan, which is used year round. The home is minutes from the Northwestern University Segal Visitors Center and the entire NU campus. Parents, professors, and NU visitors can enjoy this special bed and breakfast in every season.

The Purple Line Davis Street Station and the Metra Northline are just half a mile away, and downtown Evanston, with its many shops and restaurants, is also only a short walk.
