Overnight Stay FAQs

In addition to short-term rentals and overnight stays for wedding parties, the Chateau is open to retreats, reunions, get-togethers and corporate events Monday-Thursday (certain holidays excluded). Some of our amenities include a large lake with Santa Maria grill, over two miles of walking trails through old growth forest, large indoor pool and 12-person spa, gym and a large great room with walk-in fireplace for cozy gatherings or festive parties. The outdoor living patio invites participants to enjoy seasonal dining and activities. We offer up to 15 persons in four themed suites, all of which have their own bathrooms.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do guests have unlimited access to the indoor pool, spa, lake, and gym?

A: Yes! These are just a few of the amenities that are included on the 133-acres at the Chateau. If you are staying during the summer months, a fun day at our private, 3-acre lake with two 40′ water slides, zipline and rope swing, surrounded by old-grown forest makes for a wonderful and relaxing time.

Q: What is your policy on animals?

A: We only allow verified service animals.

Q: What is your policy on children?

A: For retreats and corporate events, only non-ambulatory infants are allowed.

For short-term stays, children must be continuously supervised to avoid serious falls, drowning, or wandering about the extensive grounds. 

Q: Do you allow outside catering?

A: Outside caterers must be approved by CDL and must also be “full service” caterers. CDL does not offer a catering option. A full-service kitchen, wood-fired pizza oven and Traeger grill is available for use by private chef or for self-made meals.

A: Absolutely no tent stakes or anything that can puncture the lawns. Tents will require base pads and hold down barrels or concrete blocks for stabilization. We do not allow any fire pits, fireworks, seeds, fake flower petals, confetti or any chemicals that can damage the lawns or walkway. If you have any items in question, please ask the CDL event manager.
