Welcome to St. Charles
Saint Charles is one of the popular towns along the picturesque Fox River. It is known for its charming downtown, historic hotel and top-rated schools. The St. Charles housing market focuses more toward sprawling estates and horse properties, although there is a diverse stock of properties from apartments to townhomes and senior living opportunities.
Downtown St. Charles enjoys a robust shopping and dining experience that draws thousands of visitors each year. The 1928 Hotel Baker offers the epitome in all things luxurious -- elegant guest rooms and suites, state of the art amenities, exceptional dining and lounge venues, and a scenic riverside setting that's second to none. If you're planning a wedding, party, banquet, conference or other event, their incomparable meeting and banquet facilities offer an atmosphere of sophisticated elegance and grace. The Fox River Trail, a 40-mile bike trail built on the former Chicago, Aurora & Elgin Railway line, follows the Fox River north from Aurora through Geneva and St. Charles, ending in Algonquin.
