Facilities and Capacity

This 45-acre estate is located in a river bottom adjacent to the scenic Hyalite Creek, brightened by blossoming flower gardens, majestic cottonwood trees, and wildlife. The ceremony area includes an aisle of living trees to the picturesque Gazebo. A quaint stone bridge and waterfall feature make for a wonderful walk to a small pond. Classic French architecture informs the construction and furnishings of The Chāteau Event Center. This influence is evident in features such as thick stone and stucco walls, sturdy beamed ceilings, elegant sconces, and iron chandeliers. The interior features 2,500 square feet of event space, suitable for up to 160 guests. Furthermore, the outdoor spaces offer ample room for parties of more than 160 guests. An exquisitely-appointed Bridal Suite and rustic Groom’s Hideout offer spaces to prepare and relax on your big day. French doors open to both covered and uncovered patios by the gardens. These feature a fountain for mingling and photo opportunities along with ample patio lighting for a late-night dancing session. This locale offers convenience for guests with wheelchair-accessible features and on-site parking. The peak season for this venue stretches from May through October.

    4/2/22 Wedding

    The Chateau Event Center was the perfect place for our Montana wedding! We really were set on getting married in April which can be a hard time for MT weather. Whitney was super helpful in all the planning and very responsive whenever we had questions. It ended up raining and hailing on our wedding day so we did everything inside and it turned out gorgeous. The chateau is amazing because it’s already beautiful on its own so you don’t have to go out of your way to make it prettier, like you would with some other venues in Bozeman. We wish we could relieve the day over and over again. You can’t go wrong with choosing The Chateau as your wedding venue!

    Beautiful Venue, Amazing Experience

    We had an intimate ~30 person reception at The Chateau in July and working with Whitney was an absolute dream. Not only is the venue and surrounding property breathtakingly gorgeous, but having our event there was *easy* from start to finish. We live out of state and were only in town for about 24 hours before the event, but Whitney was incredibly communicative, professional and responsive, and made us feel like we were in good hands from the moment we reached out about using the venue.

    The venue's packages are clearly explained and transparent about what is included (as someone who had 3 receptions and is very used to looking at packages at this point, definitely more clear than most!) and still Whitney was available to answer questions and discuss our options for a variety of things during the entire process. All of our guests had a wonderful time and the space was absolutely perfect for our "European countryside" décor. There are a number of outdoor spaces we were able to utilize, and the indoor space is very pretty, well maintained and hardly needs any dressing up to make it feel event-ready!

    I'm sure I could go on forever about how great this venue is, but will cut myself off - I could not recommend hosting your event here more!

    Our Perfect Day

    From start to finish we knew The Chateau was the perfect place for us.. The facility was beautiful and accommodated our 120+ wedding. Whitney went above and beyond to make our day 100% perfect 🥰
