Suburban retreat – Resorting – Indian Lakes Resort – Brief Article
Indian lakes Resort, the largest golf and conference resort in the Chicago area, has completed a $20-million renovation. Architect Don Erickson, a protege of Frank Lloyd Wright, designed the uniquely shaped resort over an eight-year period during the 1970s, and the renovation has enhanced Wright’s influence. Erickson created all the resort’s buildings using hexagonal shapes with large natural spaces, zigzagging hallways, waterfalls reaching three stories, and winding paths around rocks, plants, and trees.
All 310 hexagonal guest rooms have 10-foot vaulted ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. Using classic Frank Lloyd Wright prairie style decor, each room has been rebuilt with new carpeting, wall coverings, and furnishings. Upgraded room amenities include Web TV, Sony PlayStation, mini-bar, and bath products by Marilyn Miglin.
The indoor and outdoor pools have been modernized, and a world-class day spa has been added. The resort’s two restaurants and three lounges, plus the 36-hole golf course, have undergone major renovations.
