I'm almost afraid to tell others about this beautiful 1930's hotel. Arcitecturally unique and completely surrounded by forests in the Siskyou Mountains of southern Oregon it is a tucked away gem from another era.
The food is good/very good, but not crackling 5 star cuisine....More
We stayed one night. Check in was easy and all the staff was friendly. The lobby was great, takes you back in time. Such a rustic lodge feel. First thing we noticed were guests relaxing in the lodge lobby area reading books and sipping on...More
What a wonderful place to get off the grid. This is a well maintained, historic hotel in the middle of a forest after an hour drive up a narrow twisty road. It is authentic. It does have its quirks because of its age. The water...More
We love The Chateau at Oregon Caves! Beautiful historic Park Service architecture and Mason Monterey furnishings. Comfortable and relaxing. Really let's you enjoy the peace and nature of the monument. Nice staff, too. Also a great escape from the world, with no TV or internet....More
Very nice lodge maintained in the 30's vintage style with great access to the Oregon Caves tour. Great food in the restaurant and the café with extremely nice staff throughout the facility. Had a blue grass group in the lobby on Saturday with sing alongs...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!
