The Chateau at the Oregon Caves is a property in the best tradition of rustic but genteel old wilderness lodges. It is located at the end of a paved but twisty mountain road, basically across the street from the Chalet, which is now the park visitor center. It is built basically into the side of the mountain, so that the... More

This is one of only a few old lodges in the United States, and this one should not be missed. It is fairly remote, but that is part of it's charm. They have a big stone fireplace and large rooms. The stream coming out of the caves runs right through the dining room of the Chateau.

This is an update to my last visit. A while back, I and 2 others stayed at The Chateau at the Oregon Caves and while our hotel experience was phenomenal our dining experience was horrific. Today I am happy to report that the restaurant staff have redeemed themselves. My husband and I arrived to our 6pm reservation and were greeted... More

We spent one night a few nights before they closed for the end of the season. The drive up was pleasant and though I braced for "treacherous" as some reviewers alluded to, it was simply a typical windy stretch of a mountain road, best to do in daylight! Our room on the second floor was nice (the mid-priced room rate)... More

My mother and I stayed at the Chateau for her 85th birthday. We both found the mostly original building, furniture and fixtures lovely. We appreciated the lack of tv and telephone in the rooms, and I appreciated the lack of wifi, being sensitive to it. The staff at the Chateau surprised my mother with both a gift basket in our...

This is a smaller National Parks type lodge at 4000 feet elevation.. It's about 18 miles up a windy road from Cave Junction and is the best accommodations in the Cave Junction area. Don't expect the Hilton, but this has all that is essential: private baths, very clean and lots of charm. Not much soundproofing, but that's typical of the... More

This spot is definitely 'hidden' ..but it is a must see, truly. We were told about it by a fellow who told us it was an unknown gem..he is right. Fodor's mentions it but says there is 'no food'...not correct..not only is there a fine restaurant...the setting is gorgeous. I mean this 'Chateau' is literally 'in' a canyon..with views that...

We enjoyed our stay at the Chateau at the Oregon Caves. We had a room (303) above the stream in the patio, and we enjoyed listening to the water throughout the night. (It more than made up for the paper-thin walls. Beware: EVERY WORD can be heard through those walls!) The charm of the Chateau made up for the lack... More

Stayed here as part of a six day road trip. Well maintained historic lodge, friendly helpful front counter staff. Well ran by a local group rather than one of the usual national corporations. Kudo's to the NPS for awarding them the contract! Clean comfortable rooms. 1930's style cafe is a blast to eat in with it's long snaky plywood counters.... 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
