Chateau De Pere's French-country theme pays homage to the adventurous spirits of Wisconsin's first known European visitors—17th-century Frenchmen such as Jean Nicolet, Nicolas Perrot, and Toussaint Baudry. The hotel's visitors, however, find much more elegant accommodations than the French explorers did. Built on the foundation of a 19th-century mill, Chateau De Pere houses 36 suites, all with queen or king beds, a seating area, flat-screen TV, and wireless Internet. In king suites, which overlook the Fox River, guests can slip into single whirlpool baths, snuggle beneath rich, floral-printed covers, or cozy up next to the see-through fireplace that divides the bedroom and living-room areas.
In accordance with the France-inspired theme, executive chef and Provence native Sebastien Amoruso serves up French dishes, such as a pesto-slathered panini provence grilled with goat cheese, within Chateau De Pere's restaurant, Café Chanson. In addition to sandwiches, crepes, and burgers, Amoruso and his team also craft traditional French dishes, such as beef bourguignon and a slow-roasted, herb-crusted rack of lamb with rosemary cream sauce. Additionally, beret-clad roosters wake travelers each morning for a complimentary breakfast.
