Chateau Charmant (The Castle) is a labor of love for Robert & Bonnie Palmer & their daughter Brittany. After moving to Fordland, from Southern California in 2003, Robert sent Bonnie a drawing of a home which looked like a castle with “I want to build you a castle” scrawled across the bottom. From that sketch grew Chateau Charmant inspired by a magnificent 15th century French chateau.
The Castle is available for an elegant royal experience for your wedding ceremony and reception. Located high atop a hill in an enchanted countryside, it’s an event location like no other.
What better way to fulfill your fairy tale romance and say I love you than at a true European castle nestled in the Ozarks.
For one unforgettable day this castle can be yours. After dancing, wining & dining with friends, retreat to a charming old world suite where you can sleep like royalty.
The Chateau is a luxurious venue rich in ambiance and breathtaking views. If you’re looking for the truly unique, the Castle is perfect for intimate gatherings, large banquets, corporate retreats, fairs, tours, vow renewals, proposals, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners or private parties.
