Perfect, Wonderful, Amazing
AMAZING!!!! Beautiful venue. I couldn't have imagined a better venue for our May wedding and we had beautiful options for both outdoor and indoor ceremonies. The space was perfect for everything we needed. I highly recommend hiring Whitney to be your day of coordinator. She was incredibly helpful and I felt like I truly got to enjoy my wedding day without worrying about anything.Sent on 05/19/2021

The easiest part of my wedding!
Working with The Chateau was one of the easiest parts of planning our wedding. Whitney was SO helpful in helping decide how to lay out the venue and get the most out of the space. She was so flexible when things changed and made SURE that we were happy with how things were going from the time we first saw the place, over the months of planning and even after the wedding was over. Wonderful customer care.Sent on 04/29/2021

Old World Elegance in Montana
I have worked with Whitney and Keenen at the Chateau for several events over the past few years. Whitney and her crew are always so very accommodating to their guests and everyone involved with the weddings I’ve been a part of. The grounds and actual chateau lend a unique elegance not easily found in Montana. I knew that no place else would do when I had a photo shoot that needed the look of old world charm. I can’t recommend the Chateau and Whitney enough for any event you may have.Sent on 10/14/2020
