Come and stay awhile at Don’s Welcome Inn!  This grand mansion, built in the late 1800’s, will fill you with awe the moment you arrive.  It is a warm blend of the past with the present.  Located in the heart of trendy Tremont, you are in walking distance of restaurants, pubs, galleries, coffee shops, and Lincoln Park. Countless top-rated attractions are within a short drive.

Reminiscent of the turn of the century, many areas of the 6000 sq ft house boast original ornate lattice and woodwork, built-in cabinetry, pocket and folding doors, and grand columns.

The remodeled kitchen is well-equipped and has 2 refrigerators.  A walk-in pantry leads to a butler’s pantry – a unique feature in this house.  The dining room is accessible from the butler pantry as well as from the main hallway.

Gorgeous built-in cabinetry lines the walls of the spacious dining room. Take a step back in time as you enjoy dining by the soft light of the beautiful retro-fitted gas lamps.

The parlor has been equipped as a game room, complete with 75” TV, ping pong, shuffleboard, and a cocktail arcade table. You can close off this area with the pocket doors and use the futon as an additional sleeping area.

Replicating the room’s ornate white columns, the decorative fireplace in the living area is a beautiful focal point.  With three sofas, this is a nice area for socializing with your group or watching the 65” TV.  (There are pocket doors to close off this area.)

From the front entry way, venture up the grand staircase to the second floor and you will find a reading nook recessed behind lovely lattice woodwork.  If you’re in search of more privacy, there is a second reading/TV nook.   As you relax in the recliner, take in the beauty of the craftmanship of built-in cabinetry.

The 3rd ballroom has been modernized with an 86” TV and 8 recliners to enjoy your favorite movies or sporting events.  There is also a game table that seats 6.  (More amenities will be added to this room at a later date.)

This magnificent house will sleep 19.  (21 with the futon.)  There are 4 full baths and 7 TVs.   It has 9 decorative fireplaces!  As you wander through the house, see if you can find them all.
