The Place In Illinois That Makes You Feel Like You’ve Stepped Through A Magical Wardrobe
Venture to a faraway wonder-world where beauty and antique charm abound. The grounds of this stunning estate resemble a fairy tale, and it is even known as Illinois’ own “Narnia.” The best part is you don’t have to crawl through all the old coats in your closet to get there. You just have to scroll.
Located in the southwestern Chicago suburb of Lemont, you'lll find the Monte Bello Estate.
Though only about 30 miles outside the city, this magical venue takes you far from modern civilization and your mundane life.
Its other name is The "Narnia" Estate...
and its slogan is "escape the ordinary."
The estate hosts weddings, corporate events, and other parties.
Guests can lounge around the pool...
or enjoy the garden fire pit late into the night.
The interior is just as charming and picturesque.
Chandeliers, artwork, and other antique decor really make you feel like you're anywhere but Illinois.
While the inside is lovely, the grounds are what stun and amaze - and make for majestic photo sessions.
No matter the time of year, you'll find beauty and tranquility on these fairy tale grounds. Be it spring...
or wonderful winter, this idyllic estate lets you escape.
Spanning 55 acres, you'll get the full "Narnia" experience. Venture through the enchanted forest, and perhaps you'll find a centaur or satyr.
The grounds consist of sprawling gardens with hidden waterfalls, ponds, and other treasures.
Spend time reflecting by the gorgeous streams...
or find a bench where you can take in the 100-year-old oak trees.
All times of day are made more beautiful just by being in this fantasy land.
You'll feel as if you passed through an ancient wardrobe to get here, and it may just seem like you dreamed the whole thing.
The Monte Bello Estate is located at 16501 135th St Lemont, Illinois, and you can get more information on
their website or Facebook page.
