EVANSTON, IL (July 18, 2017) – Stone Porch by the Lake today announced its summer promotion “Sun, Sand and Save” for guests staying at the luxury bed and breakfast located at 300 Church Street in Evanston, IL.

“We are excited to offer this special summer promotion and hope guests will take advantage of this fantastic opportunity,” said Sharon Minick, co-owner and innkeeper at Stone Porch by the Lake.  “Summer in Chicago is a beautiful time of the year and there is nothing like an ultimate retreat in gorgeous surroundings.”

Stone Porch by the Lake is a historic Tudor mansion built in 1889 that has been meticulously restored and updated with impressive modern amenities. The luxury bed and breakfast is located directly across the street from one of Evanston’s most pristine beaches and along the shores of Lake Michigan. The magnificent property offers suites with their own private bathrooms and incredible lake or city views.

“Our guests love being able to look out from our large bluestone patio to watch the sunset or sink their feet in the sand at the beach, which is right across the street from the House,” said Minick. “Guests especially enjoy the convenience of the location and continue to tell us that between the warm hospitality and the architectural style of the house, it truly feels like a home away from home.”

Stone Porch by the Lake is walking distance to downtown Evanston and close to Chicago’s main attractions and landmarks. Various summer events throughout Chicagoland take place during the same period as the, “Sun, Sand and Save” summer promotion.
