Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa is one of the Midwest's top rated resorts that blends country manor-style luxury and sophistication with infinite opportunities for relaxation and recreation. Located in the beautiful Galena territory of northern Illinois which covers thousands of acres, the property has beautiful nature to explore, including a lake and four championship golf courses set in the rolling hills of the scenic Galena Territory offering stunning views and a state of the art golf simulator.
Guests can explore over 22 miles of hiking and biking trails. Other activities include kayaking, canoeing or using a paddle-boat across Lake Galena or reserve a pontoon boat by the hour or all day. There is also an indoor Olympic sized swimming pool that can be used year-round. Eagle Ridge also has several options for formal and casual dining including the Woodlands Restaurant, the Woodlands Lounge, Pisano’s and several clubhouses for light meals and snacks.
The Woodlands Restaurant has an expansive dining room with plenty of space for guests to relax and enjoy. The dining room is designed in western decor with high vaulted wood ceilings and chandeliers made of antlers. In addition to the wood chairs and bar stools there are also reclaimed looking restaurant booths that blend in seamlessly. The room also features large paned windows which look out onto the lush golf course and illuminate the room in natural sunlight during the daytime.
The dining room has a rustic theme with light cream colored walls and stone facades. The colors give the restaurant a relaxing and warm look which is reinforced by the natural beauty of the solid wood tables and chairs. The restaurant, which includes a bar, is carpeted in a light blue and beige colored pattern. This blends in with the motif and the pattern also closely matches the upholstered chairs, bar stools and booths. To add to the charm, the bar area has a large beam made of distressed, unfinished wood which hangs bucolic mining lanterns for lighting, enhancing the rustic decor. The seating design is laid out so there is plenty of space to ensure all guests can enjoy an intimate experience.
When the time came to renovate the Woodlands Restaurant, premium padded back wood chairs in cherry finish were chosen. The solid wood chairs are made in the US and display fine quality and craftsmanship. The elegant design compliments the restaurant’s upgraded image while the solid wood chair blends in with the rustic theme. The chairs seats are upholstered in cobalt blue premium vinyl and cobalt and cream patterned fabric back completes the look. The chair’s cherry wood finish also compliments the solid wood table tops and the wood framing in the restaurant.
For bar seating, premium padded back wood bars stools were chosen with matching upholstery and finish to the chairs. The bar stools add a luxurious touch, enhancing the upscale image while keeping with the rustic decor. The bar stools are used not only at the bar, but also in the dining area so guests can have a drink while enjoying the breathtaking views of nature outside through the large windows. The chair and bar stool’s upholstered backs pattern reflecting the carpeting create a seamless flow that has a relaxing, calming effect.
