With summer swiftly approaching, couples and families from all over the US are on the prowl for a fantastic summer vacation. It can’t just be the run-of-the-mill vacation either--this summer it should be special, it has to be the vacation that your family will talk about for years to come, the vacation that all future vacations will be compared to. While that is certainly a tall order, Eaglewood Resort & Spa is up to the challenge, and invites you and your party for a summer stay you won’t soon forget.
Located just northwest of Chicago in scenic Itasca, Eaglewood offers 295 spacious guest rooms and suites, each full of charm and meticulously kept up by its fantastic staff. The resort is highly inspired by nature, as well as the legendary work of Frank Lloyd Wright, who is known for his Prairie Path style architecture throughout the Chicagoland area. Guests come for any number of reasons: unique restaurants featuring hyper local options, the remarkable 18-hole golf course, and the romantic backdrop, for starters. The huge variety of things to do in and around the property keeps guests returning year after year.
The highlight of a summer stay at Eaglewood, however, has to be their Sounds of Summer concert series. Featuring the best of Chicagoland's live music scene and a stay in Eaglewood’s most luxurious suites, Sounds of Summer allows you to explore the Resort during the day, then relax at night with a glass of wine and the cool vibes of amazing live music. “Our Sounds of Summer series has quickly become the much anticipated event of the season,” says Julie Berry, director of sales and marketing at Eaglewood. “And, while you may only have a weekend or a night to go out, our convenient location and world-class amenities will make you will feel as if you are a world away.” Whether you’re with your family or a significant other, Sounds of Summer offers a smooth musical adventure that bolsters an already astounding summer stay.
There’s more to a vacation at Eaglewood than the incredible music. From indoor activities like bowling to outdoor fun such as bocce ball and al fresco grilling, you’ll never run out of something to do during your stay. Take a dip in the pool or play a round on the resort’s champion golf course, something that guests have been raving about for years. On top of that, the Golf Club at Eaglewood is the only course in Illinois to use Glow Gear – one of the top glow-in-the-dark equipment companies. “The addition of our night golf and cosmic putting has really added a unique element to our already exciting lineup of events,” Tom Garcia, general manager of the resort, says. “These activities create a challenging yet unintimidating and enjoyable environment that most people haven’t experienced before. The fact that we’re the only ones in the state to use this equipment just makes it that more special.”
Eaglewood’s proximity to Chicago also allows guests the freedom to experience everything the Windy City has to offer. Like we said, you’ll never run out of exciting things to do!
