The chateau’s common areas are also equally impressive — with beautiful antiques, intricate moldings, and elegant furnishings. Guests can relax in the library, enjoy a drink in the parlor and wine cellar — which the owners built from scratch — or take in scenic views from the veranda.
“My husband built this whole wine cellar,” said owner Helene Zueger. “He wanted to make it look like a real chateau, and so he built wood frames and then built the planks around it,” she shared with Vision Times. The cellar has been a main attraction for the Chateau, with film scouts using it for Hallmark movies and other TV productions, Zueger said.
“We have a wide selection of wines, and once you come in, it really feels like you are in Europe,” Zueger said, adding that, “Our wine cellar is one of a kind — it is the only one built in this style in New York State.”

“Words can’t express how much [getting married at the chateau] meant to us,” said Lillian and Lou, who wrote in a testimonial that the venue was warm and inviting, and how they received “VIP treatment” during their special day. “The wine cellar was especially unique and interesting. Loved the adorable bridal suite.”

The chateau also offers a wine and cheese reception in the evening, where guests can sample local wines and cheeses while mingling with other guests, and learn about the history of the estate.
In addition, the chateau offers fine Swiss and French cuisine in an authentically-furnished private mansion setting. Chef Dolph Zueger, who is Zagat rated and is Helene’s husband, prides himself on using only the finest ingredients sourced from local farms and businesses — including the use of free-range poultry without any added hormones or preservatives. The power couple have worked together for decades to ensure the highest quality service on all fronts — from the food, wine and decor — down to the dedicated and warm hospitality they give each of their guests.
“We just wanted to tell you that the wedding was a big success due to [the Chateau’s] wonderful staff! The grounds were immaculate, the food was superb, the wine never ran out and all your people were courteous, helpful and pleasant,” said guests Jack and Sue after choosing the Chateau as their wedding venue.
