Under the Ginko Tree

We've lived in Oak Park for about a decade and I thought I knew every nook and cranny of the village, but apparently I was wrong. I agreed to cater a friend's wedding receoption in May and this home is the venue for the ceremony and the reception. Under the Ginko Tree is a bed & breakfast located on the 300 Block of North Kenilworth and I had never heard a word about it before today. The bride and I met with the warm and inviting inn owner, Gloria, and took a tour. The home is quirky and homespun and gorgeous. Gloria has owned the home for thirty-five years, raised her family there, and converted it to a B&B nineteen years ago. She is confident the home is protected by good spirits...and I left believing she was right!

I think it will be a lovely event.
