Le Shiloh Shabby Chateau

Welcome to the Chateau
The moment we drove up to Le Shiloh Shabby Chateau, I was overwhelmed with detail. Lee from Inspired Comblogulations has hospitality down pat.
New Years Trip 049
It was about 2:30 in the afternoon when David and I let ourselves in to our home away from home for a 4 day weekend. Every light in the house was on to welcome us. There was music playing on the cd player. The warmth embraced us. The smells were inviting. The champaigne was chilled.
Chillin' on ice
Fresh fruit was set out for us.
I love this kitchen island
No plasticware in this house. Every sense was delighted. Sight, smell, sound, feel and taste. Five star all the way.

Each of the two bedrooms was decorated with taste, refinement and comfort in mind.
Masterful Beauty
Talk about personal touches, we found a cheeseball in the fridge that Lee made for us. We enjoyed it New Year's Eve. Yum!
New Year's hospitality
Yes, it was raining when we got there, but would you check out the view of the lake from our veranda? No rain could ruin that view!
Our Lake View
There was a chandelier in every single room. I won't share every picture I took. If you'd like to see more, click here. Luxurious, isn't it?

Lee and Rick. From the top of my head to the tip of my toes, "Cheers" to you for making us feel like Royalty! Every detail exceeded any expectation I may have had.

If you are looking for a getaway, I cannot endorse The Chateau enough. Thumbs up. Five stars. Smiles and giggles, this place will win you over.

With The Chateau being less than 2 hours from my house, I think I'll be back sooner than later. he he he

Happy Monday!
