About The Grove Redfield Estate

Our History & Amenities: The Grove Redfield Estate is an award winning wedding and event venue located in Glenview, Illinois on the grounds of The Grove Nature Preserve, a 150 + acre National Historic Landmark. Built in 1929 by Prairie School architect George Elmslie, the estate features an elegant Craftsman style home with changing rooms and fireplace, a 30'x60' covered outdoor Pavilion with fireplace, Gazebo and meadow. This stunning estate is ideal for weddings, retreats, meetings, milestones and life celebrations, anniversaries and Holiday gatherings. The entire estate is included in your rental, along with tables and chairs. Parking is free. Guest Capacity: The maximum guest capacity is 115 for a fully seated event, wedding ceremony or reception in the outdoor Pavilion, or 125 for a cocktail style reception, with minimal seating, in the Pavilion. The historic home accommodates a maximum of 50-75 guests for fully seated events (primarily late October - mid-April during the cold weather season), and 60 maximum for wedding ceremonies inside the Great Room. Catering: You have a choice of eight caterers contracted with the venue to provide a perfect culinary experience for your guests. The catering team (captain, bartender, servers and chefs) will manage your setup, service and breakdown and provide all equipment except tables and chairs, which are included with the venue rental. A kitchen on the first floor of the estate home offers space for caterers to prepare. Additional Vendors: You are welcome to work with any photographer, DJ/Musician, florist, decor company, etc. you wish. We have a preferred list we will share with you. Alcoholic Beverages: You are welcome to purchase alcohol from your caterer, or purchase and bring in your own for your event. Your contracted caterer will provide your bartending service. Self-pouring, shots, and bottles on tables are prohibited. We are happy to assist you with a preferred vendor list to help you plan your event, including preferred beverage providers. Parking: Ample parking with two lots is free of charge at The Grove Redfield Estate. Onsite Caretaker: A venue Caretaker employed with the Glenview Park District will be onsite managing the entire estate house, grounds, and facilities during your entire event. They do not serve as wedding coordinators. Hotel Accommodations: We partner with four local hoteliers, each within a five-minute drive of The Grove. Booking: Rental dates may be booked up to 24 months in advance of your desired date.
