One of the "Great Lodges of the National Parks," as seen on PBS, the Chateau at Oregon Caves is impressively rustic. The staff is wonderfully friendly. Our room was comfortable, if not modern. Lots of squeaky floorboards. No elevator, TV, wi-fi, cell phone. But hanging out in the large lobby is very relaxing. Food in the downstairs lunch counter was... More

It is hard to write a good review for this place. A historic lodging does not mean a poor one but in this case it is. I had called for my reservation and they were going to put us on the 3rd floor but with no elevator, we insisted on the first floor. The room, 102 ,overlooks the pond/ waterfall... More

The Oregon Caves Park is amazing, and the history of the historic chateau is interesting. Unfortunately the chateau could use some upgrades for the prices they charge. We have stayed here twice because we love the caves. The lobby is wonderful, the staff very friendly, but the rooms could use a little modernizing without taking away from the historic charm....

Wonderful rustic hotel, quiet, relaxing,and comfortable. There is no elevator so if you can't manage stairs this is not for you. I love the idea of no TV, radio, internet, cell phones, it was amazing to be of the technology rat race. The staff is so very nice, the cafeteria is unique, with great food and huge quantities (my husband... More

Another stop on our road trip from Seattle to San Francisco & I'm glad we didn't miss this! The drive up the mountain was amazing if a bit scary. The hotel was really beautiful but not for those who want mod cons or wifi & tv! Be warned, your phones & iPads won't work & there is no tv to... More

The historic lodge may lack in a few things like privacy maybe because they didn't make very thick walls in the early 1900's and a outside fire pit, I seen a photo that was hanging in the open room. It more then makes up for in well mannered staff and a true lived and well loved atmosphere. Our room was... More

It seems a long drive up the hill to the Oregon Caves and the Chateau -- it actually is a long drive. But, the Chateau is almost unique -- finished in 1934, in the middle of the Great Depression, it's still solidly built and charming. The dining room, open only for dinner, is exceptional (where else can you eat with... More

Just wanted to view the lodge. It is beautiful! Worth the drive! Gift shop very nice. Would love to stay there but not for disabled people. If you have bad knees not the place for you. I would suggest you at least walk into the lobby and view the workmanship. We are so lucky to have such a well preserved... More

This hotel is absolutely lovely! It was very clean and comfortable, cozy and welcoming. Polished wood, cozy quilts, rooms for reading, relaxing and playing board games. Even a play room on the top floor for kids to retreat to. My whole family enjoyed it immensely. This hotel may be old but it is full of personality and well cared for.... More

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
