Fodor's Review

Princely opulence, overstuffed chairs, wall sconces, antiques—this family-owned château with an elegant 18th-century facade and grand restaurant fulfills the Hollywood notion of a palatial property; guest rooms 50 and 51 have peaked ceilings with exposed-wood beams, and the enchanting restaurant (closed Monday; no lunch weekdays) boasts white wainscoting, crystal chandeliers, and gilt accents. Chef Olivier Barbarin explores an exotic repertoire of dishes, like scallops

with chestnuts and cranberry juice, which are complemented by the extensive wine list.

Don't Waste Your Money On This Chateau

The size of the room does not make up for the squeeky floor that would wake up the dead. Odors drifting up to the rooms would kill any appetite(sauerkraut). The front desk was as friendly and helpful as Frankenstein. The food is way overpriced for mediocre fare. The location is deserted, which is good if you "vant to be alone," but forces you drive to get food or anything else you want. The setting is beautiful, but did not live up to expectations.
