Professional level up to date displays in the visitor center. Fun gift shop. State interpretative employees in the Chateau ranged from good to snooty! Stop and sit on the veranda and enjoy the view! It doesn't get any better

This was all new to me and it was interesting to see how the "high-born" settled in The West. The house was well preserved and the actors and guides great.

The stagecoach was a great experience, realizing this was the mode of travel from Medora to Deadwood in 36 hours we hopped aboard. The ride was bumpy but much more authentic than the stagecoach in town that drove on pavement. It was a two mile ride along the river over dirt roads much as it would have been during the... More

The tour of Chateau de Mores was very interesting. Not by vision of a "Hunting Cabin" but it looks like it was quite the place in it's day. Fabulous views of the Missouri river valley and the Owners cattle ranch. Many of the items in the house are original which really helps one visualize what life would have been like... More

We took the stage coach ride and we were packed in too many people; even one had to ride in the front with the driver. It was basically a 20 minute ride along the river (does not go on the bed of the missouri river as we had read). Would spend the money on a trail ride instead. The drivers... More

Home was furnished with original décor. Loved the tour--so much to see. Happened to catch a historical reenactment which was excellent and a huge help in understanding the Marquis de More via the "newspaper editor" of the time. Great performance!

The original McMansion in western North Dakota. Well worth seeing just for the view from the house. The guides at the Chateau were very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. We were there on Saturday morning so happened to be there for the character reenactment of a German immigrant, Felix, who worked in the Medora area. A different character... More

Enjoyed the historic aspect of the place. Info concerning de Mores and Teddy Roosevelt was of special interest.

I guess that I had just never thought about a French Nobleman living in this part of the country and the lengths that he would go to have the kind of life that he was accustomed to. The grounds were lovely the house was very interesting and the guides were knowledgeable. Well worth the visit..
