According to The 10 Best Resorts in the Midwest from travelandleisure.com, the Deer Path Inn in Lake Forest, Illinois is the number 1 resort in the entire Midwest. The Deer Path Inn beat out some heavy-hitter resorts to claim the top spot including Missouri's best Big Cedar Lodge, and the famous Grand Hotel on Mackinaw Island in Michigan. What about the Deer Path Inn makes it better than those other resorts? On the site they say...

"Deer Path Inn has remained on the top of the list for four straight years...The proximity to Chicago, just 40 minutes away by car. And while easy access to the big city is a plus for most visitors, the property still manages to seem worlds away. As one reader explained, "You truly feel as if you are in a grand European castle.""

All of the resorts on this list look brilliant, and I would love to stay at any of them. The Deer Path Inn according to their website has very limited availability and rooms will cost you over $350 per night, which doesn't seem that crazy for a high-end luxury resort!
