Room Feature: The French Room

Room Feature: The French Room | Kalamazoo, MI

Henderson Castle Inn’s French room is a romantic, poetic dream. It is a taste of Parisian sophistication and artistry in Kalamazoo. From the window, you can view the pavilion garden, a view that seems straight out of an Impressionist painting from Van Gogh or Monet.

The ornate decorative fireplace in the room is reminiscent of French Rococo art and architecture with its gorgeous theatricality and drama. The white marble fireplace is hand-carved with a swirling pattern of cherubs in motion. The heated marble floor gives the elegance and opulence of Versailles with the convenience and comfort of a modern amenity.

The gorgeous chandelier, along with the antique collectables and teacups on display add another layer of regal French beauty. This bed and breakfast room is perfect for an anniversary, Valentine’s day, date night, or birthday with your amour.

For a fully French experience, mosey downstairs to our on-site steakhouse, H Prime Chophouse for a wide selection of traditional French cuisine. Begin with the delicious imported French brie wrapped in a puff pastry with raspberry sauce. Try either the côte de bœuf or the filet mignon for your main course. Our steak is served either in-house dry-aged (65 days) or traditional wet-aged (45 days). For dessert, try the delectable vanilla bean crème brûlée or the pot de crème au chocolat. For a French wine, you could try the Rivesaltes, a sweet wine from the Rousillon region of France with notes of candied fruit, cinnamon, and cocoa.

Finish out your French experience with a visit to the Henderson Castle Winery and Vineyard for a wine tasting. The fully immersive experience at the castle will have you singing Edith Piaf and seeing the world through rose-colored glasses.

Once you check out of the Henderson Castle boutique inn, you will be so accustomed to French culture that you will be surprised when you don't see the cobblestone streets of Montmartre. Book the French Room before someone else does by making a reservation by phone or online. You can also take a virtual tour of any of our rooms by visiting our website.
