We have stayed twice at the Chateau, a stately home turned into a seven room facility and one of the Rittenhouse properties. First time was in a group of seven couples for a murder mystery weekend facilitated by the genial and erudite (and G&S afficionado) proprietor during the shoulder season, second time on our own. Fabulous dinners and breakfasts over at the Rittenhouse, as well as other notable eateries in town, casino up the road at the Red Cliff reservation (also worth a visit). The Chateau offers limited kitchen privileges (microwave, fridge, coffee), views over Chequamegon Bay and Madeline Island, wifi, off-street parking, splendid bedrooms, marvelous common rooms downstairs, wrap-around porch for sitting and wining, pergola and garden, and a painted-lady exterior. Wonderfully restored and renovated house with wood paneling and wainscoting that is seldom seen these days and check out the different woods used for the pocket doors. Recommend the Master room and the Turret room.
