If you love National Park Lodges, as we do, see this one now. It is authenic in every way, the furniture, the rooms, the resturants and the people and service is more than great. they care about what they do and love the Chateau. It's very out of the way, but well worth the trip. 25 parks and this lodge... More

Spent a night here after traversing the long windy road to this remote simple shangri-la. Built by the CCC in the 30's it has a rustic yet grand appeal. The inviting large fireplace in the lobby was always stoked with big logs and the staff was friendly and pleasant. It's on National Park land so the area is remote and... More

It's old, small and isolated. It has no tv's, wifi, or phones for guests. Which means that it's an absolutely wonderful and serenely relaxing experience. Most of the "grand lodges" around the national parks have been taken over and updated by corporate operators. Not this one. A local non-profit runs it and the dedicated staff mostly live in the area.... More

We recently spent two nights at the Chateau and it was a wonderful experience. It's a little like going back in time: no televisions, no cell service, no wifi. We loved it! We found that we got to know the other guests, we would all congregate in the big lobby and read or work puzzles in the evenings. A truly... More

When you turn off the highway towards the Oregon Caves National Monument there is a sign posted to tell you that this is essentially one really long dead end road. And as you drive further from civilization, the road becomes narrower and more winding, with switchbacks and a sheer drop. It can be quite fun if you are the driver,... More

A 45-minute drive from 199 will put you at the Chateau. The road is a bit windy, yes, but nothing like the cliffs in Big Sur. The $109 economy rooms are cozy and have adjoining doors on the third floor, so if you're looking for more privacy (and are not carrying lots of luggage) they'll do just fine. The resto... More

We really enjoyed the historic look and feel of the Chateau. The staff were all wonderful and helpful. The food in the dining room is good, but not great, but the portions are well-sized and the ingredients seemed fresh. The cafe is a wonderful step back in time with fabulous milkshakes! The caves themselves were incredible, although several of our... More

Previous reviews have described the Chateau accurately. The most memorable part of our experience was the level of service provided by the staff. We have stayed and dined at several National Park properties and found the staff here to be exceptionally helpful, well-informed, and caring. We stayed in Room 105. It was convenient because we only had to carry our... More

Service was great and we loved the dining and wine. The whole stay took us back in time. View out the window of our room was beautiful. Highly recommend staying here because you can do cave tour and hike and relax!

The chateau is located directly across from the entrance to the caves. The area is very isolated. There is no TV, no WiFi, no telephone cell service, just peace and quiet. We loved our night here. It was so great to be able to leave the windows open, get in fresh air, and only hear the sounds of nature. After... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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
