From the moment I arrived, I felt welcomed. When I saw my accommodations and the surroundings, I knew I was going to enjoy my 2 days here. It is one of the best that I have experienced ( up there with Ventana, Ojai Valley Inn, etc). What helps make it exceptional is Chris and Tammy who are on site. They...

I could not have been more pleased with The Chateau at Lake La Quinta, what a little hidden gem it is! My family rented out the whole place for my sisters wedding and we were treated like VIPs from the second we walked in the door, with champagne, a tour and beautiful rooms. The common areas were absolutely charming with...

Imagine the finest bed and breakfast you have ever stayed in with ultra luxurious but warm common areas combined with wonderful made-to-order food, warm gracious hospitality and attention to detail in every possible way. Now make it a little larger and combine it with the finest amenities of a top boutique hotel could offer including the finest quality bath and...

I attended a wedding that took over the whole property for the weekend. Family and friends were all staying at the Chateau. The rehearsal dinner was catered in the dining room which was yummy and we did not have to drive anywhere. There are several large fire pits on the patio - great for the chill in the evening.
