Marek Grzesiak eagerly shares, “We want our Riverside Chateau to be a place where people can escape from hectic urban life, if just for a day or two. It’s a special place where they can truly unwind and enjoy the outdoors and the aurnetic outdoors and beauty of Bragg Creek, but only have to travel 30 minutes out of the city.” Their motto is "retreat, relax and remember" which reflects how they want their guests to experience the Riverside Chateau, and they are there to attend to every detail of their guest's personal escape.
