Owner of the Grand Traverse Chateau Inn should be extremely proud of their offerings. In fact they could take "Traverse" out of the name and just call it Grand Chateau Inn, because that's what it truly is, grand. My wife and I, along with a bunch of our friends, rented the entire inn, six rooms. Having the place to ourselves was really nice, but the inn is plenty spacious to be able to comfortably share it with others.
The individual sleeping rooms were very spacious with great views of the vineyards; some with views of the bay between the peninsulas. Rooms were modern, clean and well equipped with flat screen TV's, microwave oven, mini refrigerator (stocked with juices) hair dryer, makeup mirror & etc. There was a very nice and spacious seating area with couch and chair. Popcorn and granola bars were also provided for a late-night snack as well as a complimentary bottle of wine of your choosing each morning. Yes, the bed was very comfortable too.
As for the common areas of the inn, extremely spacious and comfortable. Two very large great rooms, each with a working fireplace, made it possible to spread out if desired but large enough to each accommodate our entire group room. Two additional enclosed rooms with full length windows and door walls leading to a large deck were great for smaller groups and a great place to sip morning coffee or tea or a glass of wine later in the day. We didn't use the well equipped exercise room (with sauna), but it was there if you cared to use it. The dining room was again very large with a single table that would comfortably seat twenty or so.
The do-iit-yourself breakfast (in another well-equipped and spacious room) had plenty of choices including fresh cut fruit, waffles, bacon, sausage, quiche, bagels and cream cheese, breakfast burritos, hash brown potato patties ... ok I know I'm missing some things here. What a great start for the day.
The entire staff was very friendly and accommodating. We hardly ever saw the housekeeping staff but the rooms got cleaned and fresh coffee kept appearing with us never knowing exactly how or when it was done.
I can't say enough about how wonderful our weekend stay was. Yes, I would do it again and again and again. I felt the value was more than worth the cost and find it hard to believe one could find a better stay anywhere.
