This is a small part of heaven in Central Florida - a Swiss oasis! This enchanting small hotel stands in 70 acres of parkland and tropical trees. It has been brilliantly designed, a series of chalets round a paved courtyard ensure that each guest room has its own private entrance and balcony or patio. The rooms are beautifully decorated in joyous colours, each different from the next, air-conditioned and with many luxurious amenities. The bathrooms are mostly vast and several have jet tubs. Splendid hospitality trays await new arrivals! The Hinshaws have been superb hosts for many years and welcomed many prestigious guests. The Little Swedish Lounge (the bar) has an inviting ambience and the Wine Cellar is fascinating. The piece de resistance is the acclaimed restaurant, with its Art Deco stained glass windows and lovely table settings complementing the absolutely brilliant cooking, always exquisitely presented. Strolling in the park by the lake or a gentle game of croquet is therapeutic. The pool is close to the chalets. The hotel has a boutique, ceramic studio and chapel antiques. Tours of Chalet Suzanne Soup Cannery can be arranged! Florida high life and Disney World are nearby. Good golf is accessible.

"Mona" that says it all

4.2 on March 10, 2009

Mona is the best hostess I have ever had the pleasure to meet. She puts the charm in Chalet Suzanne! We had my daughter’s wedding at the Chalet 12 Feb 09 and it was a wonderful day! Thank you Mona and all your staff for making Ben and Brandy's day an extraordinary day. Alicea

Eclectic Old Florida

4.0 on December 18, 2008

Understanding the history of this inn puts the uneven floors, low ceilings, and odd shaped rooms in perspective and adds to the charm of the place. Wonderful service, superb food. The "soup"ervisor was a great historian and salesman. Don't miss the ceramic studio for more history and background. Very unique!

50th Anniversary Present

Our children bought us a weekend at Chalet Suzanna for out 50th wedding anniversary. The stay was fabulous. Beautiful setting, some of the best food anywhere, and the most courteous owners and staff I've ever experienced!

One of Florida's hidden treasures

4.2 on September 09, 2008

This is one of Florida's hidden treasures! In addition to outstanding service, the food served for brunch was glorious in its presentation, delicious and truly something and everything for everyone. We were fortunate enough to be seated at the windows overlooking the lake where turtles frolicked while we dined. After brunch we toured the gift shop and finished off our adventure with a tour of the cannery. If you are in Lakes Wales area, Chalet Suzanne is a must!

Uniquely Classic

4.6 on September 04, 2008

What is the Chalet Suzanne? Uniquely Classic. We discovered a delightfully wonderful place to enjoy a superb meal many years ago. My wife with her parents first in the 1950's, and me later in the 1970's. We just celebrated our 24th anniversary at the Chalet Suzanne. The food and service are superb. It is hard to admit that we are drooling over menu choices before we arrive for another visit, but it is true. Additional rewards come from spending one charming night or more at this unique central Florida restaurant and country inn. Drive or fly - they have their own landing strip - to the Five Star Chalet Suzanne. Astronauts have enjoyed meals there, the world class soups made in the on the grounds cannery were taken to the moon. What it isn’t. It is not a modern commercial establishment with cookie cutter rooms. We’re glad it isn’t.

A diamond in Floridas history

If you want historic charm, a peaceful setting and gourmet dining this a gem. I would recommend to anyone who enjoy a rustic setting. I will be back

Very charming and quiet place to stay. The room I was in (Blue Tree North) needed to have the carpet removed. The food was very good but the service wasn't quite up to par. Loved the fact that you could take a soup cannery tour. Enjoyed that very much. The soups are GOOD! Will go back but stay in a different room.

For something completely different!

For two cousins living at opposite ends of Florida, what a find bang in the middle! We loved the rooms, the food was spectacular, and the service terrific. For elegance, charm, and a quirkiness to cherish, check out Chalet Suzanne. We'll be back! Annie and Ro
