The Homestead 1854


Visited Homestead 1854 this weekend .What a ageless beauty every small town should have a place like this . Weddings, retreats,special functions.
The place was incredible. We came as a European architectural tour through five states, and this was definitely the best accommodation we had in the whole thing. We rented the whole house, and had dinner included. It was all perfect, elegant, and the best personalized service and treatment we could have. As one of our group guest (senior architect) said, Mary is the heart of the house. Thank you very much for such a great and warm experience. This is the place to be recommended and hope to come back next year again.
Mary Kay, my friend (and tai chi teacher) who is hosting and teaching tai chi at the Farnsworth House this Saturday, would like to know if you would be willing to have a tai chi class at your beautiful location. Can you let me know? Thanks.
I'm turning cartwheels of joy and am so excited for August!
Had a blast last night at the Culinary dinner and wine event! The Homestead is a gorgeous place!
The Homestead is the perfect place to take a snooze.

An incredible evening was had by all at Homestead 1854, Beer Pairing Dinner last night. Owners Mary Kay and Chet were so gracious and welcoming. The food from Chef Rachel Conover was fresh, safisticated and absolutely delicious! The beer pairing with each course was excellent. Dave Knop our expert did a fantastic job explaining each beer and how it was produced. We had a great experience lastnight and we were thoroughly impressed with every detail of the evening. This was our first time experiencing Homestead 1854. We highly recommend you check out this incredible venue.

“Umm...can't believe we didn't know about this place.”
Really?!? We aren't trying to keep it a secret! The Homestead 1854, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, has hosted dignitaries and guests since it was established in 1854 and owned by Lewis Steward, a businessman, politician and philanthropist. Tucked in a neighborhood of Plano, IL, the restored property is a mid-west hidden oasis and popular venue for those looking to escape the ordinary and who are in search of truly exclusive wedding and retreat experiences.
You can't crash weddings, but you CAN register for any of our upcoming events and retreats! Visit and click on events!


Really, really excited to share that Mindful Mondays are back @thehomestead1854 in the new chapel!

Register at

Yoga can help us live happier in many ways--beyond the bending and breathing that goes on in the typical yoga class. The truth is that yoga's tradition of mindfulness and meditation practices are proven to help lift our moods, increase our energy, and leave us with more clarity and optimism.
The Homestead 1854’s Mindful Mondays invite you to slow down, focus inward and nurture your body. The 90-minute sessions integrates active and restorative postures to strengthen and lengthen specific muscle groups, promote breath emphasis and provide for releasing deep rooted tension and relaxation. To promote sensory awareness, hydrate the body and support healthy sleep, each session is accompanied by a soothing cup of tea, 🫖


Al fresco: it's just how WE DO! Nothing new for us.

“RINGING in the New Year”
“BRINGING in the New Year”

Which is actually correct? There’s no wrong answer to this question. “Bringing” is obviously correct as the sentence means saying goodbye to the old year and trotting the new one out for all to see. When it works, it works. Meanwhile, “ringing” holds a significance for the holiday that’s deeply rooted in the age-old tradition.

All that said, you guessed it, we prefer RING!

What's your preference?
