I was a guest for a wedding and stayed the night. Couldn't agree more with a previous comment: the hostess was arrogant and insensitive. She offered up her shortsighted political opinions without being asked -- she has great disdain for environmentalists (tree huggers) and "liberals." Another anecdote: When told that some guests were from New York she told a story... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon, and the owners went out of their way to make our trip picture perfect!

I decided to take a last-minute trip up to Lake Arrowhead (arriving late on a Saturday from Los Angeles) and Kelly and Debbie, the proprietors, were so accommodating. I arrived after they had begun their evening errands and Kelly left the grocery store to come let me in to the house! The home and property was stunning and it is... More

One of our favorite things to do as a couple is travel the world, and in the process have stayed at over 55 B&B's. The Chateau Du Lac exudes a quality and romance we have seen less than a handful of times. Next year we will be celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and have decided to stay at this exquisite...

We have stayed a few times at this chateau over the past three years. Gus and Kathy owned it before and were always so kind and accomodating. We couldn't wait to come back each time. Our last stay was in January with the new owners, Kelly and Debbie. What was already a wonderful bed and breakfast has now become the... More

We just had the most romantic weekend at the Chateu. Kelly and Debbie have owned it less then a year and have done beautiful upgrades. Their hospitality was awsome and the food was outstanding. They really made us feel like family yet, they kept a very low profile to not disrupt out getaway. I have alreay raved to family and... More

I was a guest at the wedding that all these women are writing cruel reviews about. The wedding was gorgeous and the hospitality great! There was a clique of women there that I overheard from the beginning putting down the bride's chosen location and wedding size. They were comparing her wedding to their's that they had "spent over $30,000 on"... More

I was a wedding guest at this location over the summer, and I could not disagree more with the negative comments posted! I found everyone involved with the wedding production to be very professional and fun! This location is spectacular, and my boyfriend and I are talking about having our wedding here, because we were so impressed with how smoothly... More

Although Chateu du Lac is in a pristine location near Big Bear, California and in the heart of beautiful national forests, service and accomodations at the Chateu were far from superb. Rooms are expensive and the hosts are ungracious and arrogant. My friend recently held her wedding reception at Chateu and the owners of the establishment gave her wrong information;... More

Management response:

We have just become aware of this posting from another client, and feel that this entire issue was a misunderstanding on the part of the wedding guest. The Bride and Groom were told prior to their event that due to the city noise ordinance of this residential neighborhood, that the reception and all amplified music must end at 10 p.m.,... More

Chateau du Lac in Lake Arrowhead, CA could not be a more unwelcoming place to spend a weekend. If you are thinking of heading to the San Bernadino Mountains, find another place to have your wedding or book a party. ONe of my best friends just had a wedding here where they set up for the next day's events while... More
