The Chalet Suzanne traces its business origins to the early 1930s when Bertha Hinshaw opened a small restaurant and wayside inn that employed buildings left over from part of a failed development initiated by her late husband in 1924. Despite the Depression, the restaurant prospered and gained national recognition after it was praised by Duncan Hines in a 1936 book.
Architecturally, the building is a fanciful collection of gables and towers and resembles a Swiss chalet. Its dining area is decorated with art and antiques collected over many decades from Europe and America. Chalet Suzanne is located on Chalet Suzanne Road.
