Stayed just one night but loved the room. Comfy beds, the sound of water falling all night. Rooms do not have AC but the ceiling fan and open windows worked to cool us just right. Staff was very helpful and nice. Floors were dirty if you walked around barefoot...so common in hotels...but you couldn't see visible dirt. No phone, no... More

We stayed 2 nights in a queen standard room which was very comfortable with a small table and chairs and nice bathroom. This lodge was built in 1934 and altho upgraded a bit, it is really like going back in time since you are off grid, thus creating time for sitting with coffee or wine, reading, talking, doing puzzles or...

Ever since viewing the t.v. series about the great lodges, and over thte intervening years often revisiting the book, I've wanted to experience all the lodges in person. In August, we enjoyed a 2-night stay at the Chateau. The architecture, 'though not grand-scale is a treat, as the rustic Craftsman lodge straddles a steep-sided ravine through which a creek flows....

First let me get this out of the way: NO CELL PHONE RECEPTION FOR SEVERAL MILES AROUND AND NO WIFI, NOT EVEN IN LOBBY! So be prepared if you are addicted to the internet, like me. You might actually have to - shock, horror, TALK to your family! Anyway, if you're coming all this way along the windy road up... More

Just spent a couple nights there. Vintage style lodge. Takes you back in time. Staff was wonderful. Grounds were well kept and attractive. The caves are right across from the lodge and the tour is well worth taking. Would recommend to anyone I know :-)

In order to reach the Chateau, you drive 20 miles on twisting and turning roads. If you are prone to car sickness, plan accordingly. It was a difficult ride for my kids. And a painful cleanup for us. The chateau manager was very helpful and friendly when we finally arrived. We had a lot of car cleanup and were able... More

After the long, stressful drive up the mountain (lots of hairpins and switchbacks), we were so happy to finally arrive at the Chateau. We had dinner reservations for 8 pm (this is the latest seating available), but unfortunately we arrived late and did not get a chance to eat in the restaurant. As others have mentioned, the lodge is beautifully... More

We enjoy historic old hotels, especially national park-style hotels. I had not heard about the Chateau at the Oregon Caves until a friend recommended it and we modified our itinerary to give this one a try - we were not disappointed. It's old and the floors are creaky and there is no elevator, but the room was quite comfortable and... More

Very nice service. Clean and comfortable rooms. No air conditioning so avoid the third floor. Our dinner in the Chateau was good but a bit pricey. The Cave Tour was very informative and interesting. Enjoyed hiking to "Big Tree".

The Chateau at Oregon Caves is a beautiful old lodge. The rooms are much as they would have been in days gone by. The quiet, family friendly atmosphere is great for an overnight and the restaurant is good and the portions are huge!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
1 Hour drive from Grants Pass Oregon. The Chateau is a six-story structure with a reinforced concrete foundation and a superstructure of wood frame construction with enormous post and beam interior supports. The building spans a small gorge and a great deal of the building's mass is banked into that depression. The first floor houses mechanical equipment. The second contains basement storage areas. The dining room, coffee shop and kitchen areas are on the third floor--at the same level as the lower trout pool grotto at the immediate head of the gorge. The fourth floor is at road level and contains the entrance lobby and some hotel rooms. The two upper stories have additional hotel rooms. Exterior walls are shiplap siding sheathed with cedar bark, giving the building a shaggy, rustic appearance.(Sorry no pets allowed at this time) ... more   less
