About The Venue

In case you’re on the fence…here’s where you’ll be staying.

Surf Chateau is located on the bank of the Arkansas River, overlooking the whitewater park in the heart of a critically acclaimed walkable neighborhood called South Main. Here you will find charming architecture, a relaxed small-town feel and endless opportunities for adventure.  World-class kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, rafting, road and mountain biking, fly fishing, and an extensive system of trails are just steps away.  When you’re done with the day’s journey, dining and boutique shops are at your fingertips. No driving necessary.


Timeless architecture, comfortable, elegant interiors, sustainable materials and outstanding craftsmanship is evident from the moment you arrive. There is nothing ordinary about the Surf Chateau. Walk through the property and you’ll discover a mix of fireplaces, 19th century inspired canopy beds, clawfoot tubs, chandeliers, handmade oak barrel top tables, vaulted beadboard ceilings, patios and balconies with stunning views of surrounding mountains and the river park. At times calm and at times bustling with activity, the beautifully lit and landscaped central courtyard is an enclosed yet social setting. It’s a place for dialogue, drinks, and great times. Spa-worthy linens, WiFi, and a mini-fridge are standard in all rooms.

The Investment

Our goal was to create a dreamy working vacation that small business owners and entrepreneurs could justify. The River Gathering offers you the best bang for your hard working buck because you get a vacation, that you undoubtedly deserve while also focusing on your most important business needs. We like to call this a winner-winner chicken dinner.
