We were driving by Cave Junction after visited an amazing Swimming Holes near California highway 199, and found Oregan Caves - National Monument nearby. Glad that we did the tour and stayed at the only one Chateau there. It was wonderful tour although it was...More
The rooms are spacious and clean. Each bed is topped with a quilt made and donated by ladies in the local quilt group. There are bedside tables and lamps on both sides of the bed. There is also a desk in the room. There is...More
It was an absolute delight to step over the threshold into 1939 leisure lodge living. The furnishings, atmosphere, quirks, and "feels" should not be missed or mislabeled. Many of the pieces in the chateau are personalized with "made by" and design interpretation labels. The beds...More
One of three national lodges in Oregon (the other two being the one at Crater Lake and the another I don't quite recall) this is a charming place to rest, relax, and explore the area.

This lodge is so old that it is scheduled to close next year for a major renovation that is scheduled to last for 2 years. In the meantime, my room was dark and dingy and lacking many amenities that one finds in modern hotels such...More

Jeanette is correct -- your best bet is to contact the hotel directly; their phone # is 541-592-3400. They have a pretty comprehensive website, easily googled "chateau oregon caves." I don't see anything on it about current renovations -- but, because it is high in the mountains and they have a very short season, from May thru Sept, they're always fixing something. I highly recommend the Chateau; it is well worth the drive up the mountain.

This is a multi story building set against a hill, which explains the answer provided about what is located on each floor. The 'main' floor (which is actually the 4th) consists of registration and a large lounge area, and apparently a few rooms (I would contact the lodge directly to confirm this, as I was told no rooms were available on this level). It is 3 steps up from parking. The majority of bedrooms are located one or two flights up a staircase. The restaurant and the cafe are located one level down from registration. There are no elevators. There is a slope walkway (pretty steep if you are in a wheelchair) from parking to the restaurant level, and it is outside. Additionally, the vistor center, trails, cave, etc, are all up hills and / or stairs, although I believe the visitor center also has a ramp. One other thing to be aware of: in order to actually enter the cave, you must be able to 'duck walk' at least 10 steps. None of the brochures I saw indicated that. This rule holds even for the 'easy access' area touted for children and less firm. Since I had an ankle injury when I visited, I was not able to pass this test. It is a pretty area, but that is what you will see from the convenience of your vehicle and from a walk into the lounge area of the lodge. This is the least accessible national park I have visited to date. Again, I would direct call the lodge and also the visitor center and ask the people with 'boots on the ground' about availability, as facilities may have been added or modified! Happy trails!
