Wandering Tree Estate

Private Luxury Estate just outside Chicago

North Barrington, IL 60010


Wandering Tree Estate is a private luxury venue that has been creating lasting memories and fantastic events for 45 years. Ten acres of gorgeous gardens showcase nature at its glorious best. Everywhere you turn you are surrounded with lush lawns and exquisite landscaping.

The famous outdoor Model Railroad Gardens are a fantastic setting for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. There is even a private Model Railroad Museum displaying the City of Chicago that is available for you and your guests. Photo opportunities are everywhere (check out the four acre private lake, the beautiful Japanese gardens with seven waterfalls and a red bridge, and the lush herbaceous border gardens with tropical plants and trees).

Wandering Tree Estate only allows one event per weekend which means you have the entire Estate exclusively for you and your event. You can also add special enhancements to your celebration such as elegant lighting in the trees for a touch of magic. During the week, Wandering Tree Estate is available for private cocktails and dinner parties.

The rental fee varies depending on the time of year and guest count. Please give us a call at 847.381.1907 to determine the best price package available for you and your budget.
