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.

  • I have worked with Whitney and Keenen at the Chateau for several events over the past few years. Whitney and her crew are always so very accommodating to their guests and everyone involved with the weddings I’ve been a part of. The grounds and actual chateau lend a unique elegance not easily found in Montana. I knew that no place else would do when I had a photo shoot that needed the look of old world charm. I can’t recommend the Chateau and Whitney enough for any event you may have.
