Welcome to the Bears Nest Community!
In 1985, Bears Nest in Park Ridge was designed by architect Eleanore Pettersen, who studied with Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin and created the first phase of a “neo-Tudor” townhome community, an environment-oriented, traditional English village with a modern sensibility.
The 201 Bears Nest units, built among undulating hills, large stones, and 100-year-old trees, sit on 46 lush acres.
Residents of Bears Nest can enjoy all the amenities of their own country club in a luxurious and superbly designed clubhouse that perfectly exemplifies gracious living in this community gathering place.
It is a country retreat complete with a secluded meadow and a stream-fed pond that provides modern luxury while invoking the village spirit of a by-gone era.
