The House

historic EVANSTON mansion

The architectural style of Stone Porch by the Lake embraces the past while ushering in a new wave of 21st-century innovation. It was built in 1889 as a Queen Anne style house and in the 1930s was transformed into the Tudor Revival that stands today.

A bluestone porch wraps the front of the house and a patio with a 15-foot outdoor stone fireplace sits in the back, offering ample opportunity to relax outdoors. Inside, a large, open staircase welcomes visitors into Stone Porch and establishes the warm, hospitable tone for your stay.
