The Warner Lodge was originally available only to Members of the Yacht Club and their guests, but Jack Warner bought it from the Company in 2006, renovated it and opened it to the pubic. In 2015, the name was changed to THE JACK WARNER at NorthRiver, to preserve the legacy of a truly remarkable man.
What makes THE JACK WARNER special is its location and the relaxation that is experienced immediately upon turning into its Bradford Pear tree-lined entrance. The hotel itself is cozy and welcoming, yet filled with an eclectic array of antiques, as well as fine and decorative artss reflective of Warner’s renowned eye for beauty . It has a boutique hotel ambiance, but actually boasts 55 rooms on 3 floors, accessible by stairs or elevator. Many different room-types are available to accommodate guests with differing needs and desires to be pampered. Many rooms are handicap-accessible, and all are distinctively decorated. Complimentary Continental Breakfast is served daily in our Apothecary Lounge, a paneled room that served as an authentic Apothecary built in the 1850’s in Guilina, Illinois. Jack’s interest in purchasing this room at auction related to his love of American History and the room’s former location in the hometown of President U.S. Grant, who was known to be a frequent customer. A Russian Tea Room can be found on the 3rd floor where guests can enjoy high-tea and crumpets on Wedgewood and Rose Medallion China.
