Married for 34 years - parents to three adult children – Mike and Monique Chase seem to just be getting started. In the past few years they’ve moved from Austin to Johnson City, built a Wine Castle - a literal castle - and have now blessed the Hill Country with their magnificent new venture - The Bentley Hotel on 290.
The Bentley - which sits alongside the spectacular 290 Wine Castle - will undoubtedly be the spirited traveler’s top choice for accommodations in Johnson City.
The Bentley offers up more than just a spot to lay your head down after day tripping the Texas Hill Country. With 12 rooms & two suites outfitted with king size beds, stocked wine fridge, plush robes, lounge slippers, 55” TV, and complimentary wifi – you may not want to leave the room. These rooms & suites are themed - yes, themed! You can enjoy the ambiance of a James Bond themed room, Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol and others.
Let's assume you will in fact have a desire to step outside your fabulous room. The guests at The Bentley can enjoy a resort-style pool & hot tub, lounge cabanas poolside, an outdoor wine cabana complete with wine cocktails & culinary delights.
The Bentley offers all guests a Happy Hour on Friday evenings, complimentary poolside breakfast on Saturday & Sunday mornings, shaded cabana bar & kitchen that’s open for business from 5pm to 10pm.
Sorry parents - while Mike longs for the day he has Grandchildren - The Bentley Hotel is a 21 & up establishment.
Mike & Monique’s passion for being part of the growing industry in Johnson City brings them true joy. Monique says it best, “We love experiencing the beauty of the Texas Hill Country, especially the sunsets with a glass - or bottle - of wine!”
Their operation is indeed a family affair. The Chase family includes daughters Margeaux, Chelsea, & son Corbin. Margeaux resides in Fort Worth with her husband and is involved heavily with the family business. Corbin is a talented actor, musician, and comedian living in NYC, but also collaborates with his family & visits often. Chelsea, the youngest of the three - is the boss lady of the 290 Wine Castle - as GM of the tasting room she is on the grind daily ensuring guests have a wonderful experience during their visits. Mike has been taking the kids to work with him since they were little. Growing up, Margeaux - the oldest of the three children - recalls them all working together on various projects to help whatever small biz venture they were at during that stage of life.
The Chase Family are simply wonderful fun-loving humans. They’ve blessed us all with a unique opportunity to go out & experience the Hill Country with style & class.
Mike, Monique and the Chase crew - we salute you and thank you.
