Chateau Noel Gardens


The twelve formal gardens surrounding Chateau Noel were originally designed by Helen Crocker Russell in cooperation with Bruce Porter, the renowned landscape architect famous for the coveted Filioli Gardens of Woodside, California. Completely rejuvenated in the 1980s by Gordon and Noel Hentschel, they now present a bouquet of Western variety. The gardens range from an animal shape garden to a rose garden to a vegetable and fruit garden to an 18th century Georgian landscape of manicured hedges and ordered flora.

Garden tours are available to in-house guests from 8:00am to 5:00 pm.

Stretching into the valley horizon beyond the gardens is a four-hole golf course crowned by the Waterfall Pavilion and a soon-to-be completed 120 square foot conservatory/chapel. Before driving out to one of the five major golf courses in the area, practice your drive, chipping and/or simply putt on the greens. Stage a performing arts event or host a small speaking convention in our Waterfall Pavilion. The audience capacity ranges from 150 to 200 persons.
