Stayed in room #201 by the pond and Waterfall! View of Cave Entrance, Waterfall- just lovely. Room Historic and very relaxing. Staff and Service the Best! The Dinners are beyond delicious, and very creative! The wildlife deer walk right up the steps to the cave...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
The Chateau is such an amazing place. The room we stayed in was like something out of a fairy tale. The high peak in the middle with the beds nestled in, added to it's charm. The view was wonderful, as was falling asleep to the...More
We drove from the California side taking the old highway route from Crescent City and the highway has been widened and paved, (my old map showed it as a one lane gravel road). We surprisingly drove through a tunnel on this route, before reaching the...More
We stayed here on 8-8-18 as a spur of the moment change in plans due to smoke from all the forest fires. We even stayed in the same room as last time, Room 303. Very charming rustic inn next to Oregon Caves Nat'l Monument. A...More
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 ...Moresupports. 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) Less

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!
