My husband and I visited the Traverse City area for the first time, and decided to drive up the Mission Peninsula; we found the Chateau both through travel info from the local visitor's bureau, AAA, and the web. We were thoroughly impressed. The peninsula is pretty much untouched commercially, and the winery/Chateau is a first class operation. From check-in to check-out, the staff went above and beyond to make sure our stay was as comfortable and pleasant as possible. Our room was perfect-views of both sides of the bay, a balcony, and a huge whirlpool tub. The views from anywhere on this entire property are indescribable, it's simply breathtaking. All the ammenities are things you expect from a five star hotel; the breakfast was delicious as well. The winery is another added bonus-excellent wine, and the tasting is fun-the employees are very well versed on the many selections available. Anyway, can't say enough good things about this property; if we had to pick a minus-it would be that breakfast is at 8:30-if you snooze you lose, and when vacationing, that is a bit early. Other than that, can't wait to go back, just wish it was a closer drive.
