Chateau Chantal Winery and Inn
Ranked #2 of 19 Traverse City B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 October 2017 via mobile

Beautiful grounds, views, building and decor. Was a little chaotic in there as expected. The wines I tried weren’t great and our pourer had absolutely no personality and didn’t offer much to our tasting as other wineries’ pourers did on our visits. I mean, absolutely no conversation or recommendations to us at all. It was like he couldn’t wait for us to finish and move on. So that’s why the 3-Star rating. It kind of ruined that winery for us. Other than that, we loved the dessert cherry wine we tried and bought a bottle of that. I will come back again and hopefully have a better experience. The pourers really do make or break the experience.

I'm so sorry to hear you had a poor experience with one of our servers. They are trained to be able to explain the qualities of our wines and to also be friendly to our guests. Looks like we missed the mark on this one. If you are able to offer more details about your server, we'd like to use this as a training session. Please feel free to contact me with details at mcdalese@chateauchantal.com.

Thank you,
Marie-Chantal Dalese

This was just for a fall color old mission peninsula getaway. While I do spend a lot of time on the peninsula I had never stayed on it. Even if I will be in Traverse City, this is where I will stay. Hospitality was A+. Our view from our suite was A+. And having private access to the tasting room....what a finishing touch. I will be back soon as an overnight guest. Keep up the good work!

Chateau Chantal provides a very intimate B & B experience. We stayed in the Degas suite which was quaint, clean and well appointed. Views are wonderful from every room. The staff is so helpful and tasting room staff was very knowledgeable as well as cordial. :Breakfast was fabulous served in a dining room that was spacious with light coming in from East and West windows. Wine tour was very interesting and just wondering the property gives the feel of being on any of the primo vineyards in France, Italy or Napa. Highly recommend a stay at Chateau Chantal.

Room Tip: Their rooms are all suites. It’s worth it.

Of all the winery visits we made, this was the most picturesque. We sat on their deck that overlooked a beautiful vineyard with Lake Michigan in the background. A lovely setting to relax and enjoy a glass of wine.

Four of us women decided to drive up to Traverse City to see the color changes and check out a few wineries along the way. The colors were disappointing (still not ready) but the last stop on our trip was definitely NOT disappointing. We tasted 3 wines and the gentleman who provided the tastings was very nice, very knowledgeable and did not rush us at all. After the tastings, we ordered 1 glass each to drink out on the patio. The view was spectacular and the environment was very relaxing. We all agreed that it would be wonderful to return when we could stay one night in the inn (and have more than 1 glass of wine). We highly recommend a visit!

Room Tip: We didn't stay there.
