The Chateau itself is an interesting place with an interesting history. But there are rooms upstairs, and one in particular, that is haunted. I have stayed at the Chateau twice. Once, in one of the rooms on the lower floor and once in one of the upstairs rooms, the one adjacent to the 'haunted' room. And I will tell you, I am happy to have been next door and not IN the haunted room. To know that you are on the top floor of a building, yet to hear the tread of human footsteps pacing *above* your head and the crying of what sounds like a child outside of your window. VERY strange. I am wondering if the person who wrote the 'one star' review may have booked into the haunted room. Blood on a towel and a slimy bathtub? Most bizarre!
I have rated the Chateau as Neutral, because the rooms really are spendy for what you get. If you are looking for a nice and affordable place to stay on Caves Highway, try COUNTRY HILLS RESORT. There are private cabins, motel rooms and a campground with RV spaces and camp sites, food is served in Summer, there is an ice-cream parlor and the folks that run the place are truly nice. It's about twelve miles to the Caves, but that is not a big deal. Rates are very reasonable at CHR and there is a big, beautiful creek running through the back of the property and easy hiking trails. I lived at CHR in a cabin for nine months while building was being done on my property in Kerby and recommend the place highly. The food is 'down home', not fancy, but it's tasty and Don & Judy will make sure you don't go hungry!
I will also add that food at the Caves Chateau *was* exquisite, world-class, in 2003, but the quality took a nosedive in 2004. The meal prices haven't changed -- you'll still be paying for what *should* be an extraordinary meal, but what you will get is sub-par. But hey, if you are into hauntings and want to experience something genuinely spooky, ask to be put in the haunted room (or next door...you'll get some of the overflow vibes, which were strange enough for me!).
