I am suprised by all of the overwhelmingly positive reviews of the Chateau. First, its location is very unfortunate. It's 90 minutes from Yosemite so if you plan on doing hiking or sightseeing in the park it's not convenient. Plus, it's located in Oakhurst, CA which is by no means a quaint or charming town. In fact, when you drive out of the Chateau you can see the big yellow M for McDonalds. The town is chock full of chain restaurants/hotels so if you don't eat at the Elderberry House (which we didn't) there's really nowhere else decent to go. The staff is very attentive so if you're into be waited on hand and foot, then you may feel right at home. We, however, thought it was a bit invasive. We also had a very weird, inappropriate exchange with one of the staff members. There just seemed to be a little something off about all of the people who work there. We felt that they tried to push their Elderberry House restaurant on us and made us feel guilty for not trying it out. The grounds are nice as are the rooms but the pool was disappointing as it's very small and there really isn't much to do on the property. We really wanted to like this place but just felt that it was trying too hard.
