We found this through an online offer, checked reviews and descriptions and booked a 2 day stop for the end of April.

The Chateau is not, repeat NOT a "b & b"! Rather, it is a small, sophisticated -what Bostonians call- a "boutique hotel". Chris is a unique host who effortlessly anticipated our every need- even encouraging us to try our wings tasting new wines. My favorite sommelier! My second favorite sommelier, Mike! Mary and Tammy are superb and Omar makes a...

This is a "hidden gem" and I had the luxury of staying several days. Chris, Mike, Mary, Rebecca provided very friendly and excellent service. I recommend the flatbread and a glass of wine every evening on the patio! AA
