Chateau Frontenac

1865 Frontenac Hospitality

Chateau Frontenac is located on Lake Pepin, a natural lake in the Mississippi River, and in the historic village of Frontenac, MN. It is tucked below 450 ft high Garrard's Bluff (aka Point-No-Point). The first resort hotel in the upper midwest operated on the site as the Lakeside Hotel (1865-1901) and as the Frontenac Inn (1905-1938). In its heyday, 5 steamboats a day exhanged passengers and goods on its beaches. The Methodist Retreat Campus operated here until 1987 when it was purchased by Chateau Frontenac for restoration.
