The Gray Goose Inn, Country English in style sits on 100 wooded acres overlooking private Lake Palomara. As you enter the front door you imediately sense the spirit and tradition of our Colonial heritage. A mixture of antiques, fine reproductions, tapestries, and old prints set the stage for your stay. A gourmet breakfast is served in our dining room reminiscent of an English pub. While dining watch Canada Geese, Ducks, Blue Heron and other wildlife. Walking trails ring the lake for the nature lover or for just a leisurely walk. Guest rooms are individually decorated from Shaker, 18 century English, French Country to English Victorian. A truly unique corner of Dunes Country.

We spent 2 nights 1/31/14 to 2/2/14. If you are looking for a quiet and comfortable stay you will not be disappointed. We escaped our busy lives to this romantic getaway and enjoyed our elegant breakfast sitting by the window watching the birds and wildlife. I was impressed by the cleanliness and attention to detail. The Inn is within driving distance (or take the train) to downtown Chicago. We drove to the city one night and enjoyed the symphony. We also enjoyed an evening sitting by the fire with a glass of wine when it was snowing outside. You will not be disappointed with your stay at Gray Goose Inn.

My fiancee and I have been visiting the Grey Goose Inn over 10 years. It has been a wonderful retreat for us as busy professionals and a perfect place for special occasions. We didn't make it there last year, but in 2012 I proposed during our visit. There have been many happy memories there. Tim is an excellent host, we love the homey feel of the Inn which says simply, "Comfort" in every way at a great price. All the rooms have their own charm and unique character thanks to Tim's decorating. The breakfasts have always been superb. Thanks Tim!

We stayed 5 nights while viewing homes for relocation to the area. Tim was so friendly and helpful. We felt very relaxed and comfortable it was almost felt like home. This place and the owner have real character; a welcome change from the generic standard of chain hotels.

Overall, our stay was very nice. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and quiet. Very nice bath robes! Our breakfast was very tasty. Fresh juices, fruits, ect ... . The only thought we had was that there may be an opportunity to add some variety to the breakfast options. We've visited before and the food has always been very good but eggs or ommelets seem to always be the meal at breakfast. Some variety would we welcome on this front. Also, I'm surprised pets are now allowed given that people have allergy issues with dogs/cats ect. ... .
