  • The only Chateu Organ Caves Trip

    by Jane200838 on 2018-06-13 06:48 pm

    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 raining and cold last Saturday. I will recommend this place to my friends if they want to visit the cave. Please note, there is no WiFi in the area, internet connection is poor. No phone and TV in the room. Pure nature and relaxing stay. Old style non remodel room with old pipe and pluming system. Restaurant has great food and the front desk lady was really helpful!

  • Beat Your Feet Before The Remodel

    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 actually had real quilts with interpretive and creator labels. Sure, the old girl makes a few sounds, and some furniture is well worn, but you can touch history at almost every turn. We absolutely loved it....great restaurants, gift shop, and oh.....the staff was magnificent!!!

  • Wonderful Old Lodge near Wonderful National Monument

    by allamagoosa on 2018-06-10 12:15 am

    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.

    I stayed for 2 nights and had a great time seeing the caves and doing one of the longer hikes up to Mount Elijah. 10 Miles round trip and up 2k feet but afforded great views).

    The rooms are clearn and quaint. There are no TVs in the rooms, no WiFi, and No Cell service so bring a book or a walking stick. You will find on some of the hikes you will get cell service briefly so you can text your family.

    The restaraunt was excellent. Certianly unexpectidly good meal at a somewhat more remote place. Make rerervations for a fairly small menue with a variety of choices including vegitarian. I had the Buffalo Meatloaf which was good with mashed potatoes.

  • Old hotel on last leg before renovation

    by artchan93 on 2018-06-04 011:10 pm

    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 as a small fridge. The bathroom was small and provided no place to put personal toiletry items and little hot water. But there were big black ants running in the sink. It has no wifi or cell service, no TV. Yet it is charging premium rates that does not include breakfast. Wish there were other reasonable options for the location.

  • Step into the Past

    The Chateau is a charming throwback. The outside and public spaces are great looking, pretty much all wood with a rustic charm. Try to get a little time to sit in the lobby and enjoy the giant stone fireplace and the view of the surrounding forest and stream.

    The rooms are a little less great; if I were grading on just the room and not the overall experience, I'd be giving a lower rating. (The planned refresh happening soon will probably update all this.) The finishes are dated and shabby at this point, but they aren't without charm. The bed was comfortable enough and the room was large enough. I liked the bathroom; the old style fixtures look cool and the huge bathtub was great for a soak as a way to pass the time.

    And you will need something to pass the time; as stated on the website and in many reviews, there is no internet, no televisions, no cell service. There are board games in the lobby, and we had a copy of a book about the history of the caves in our room. Our room also had its own guestbook, and we did read a few of the previous entries and get a few laughs that way.

    Other than the general dinginess of the room, the only other drawback was the thin walls/connecting doors, which meant that you could hear other people in their rooms. The clientele here is pretty much all doing the same thing, going to bed relatively early and getting up at a reasonable time for parks activities, but if you are a light sleeper it could be a pain.

    We did not eat at the main dining room, but did have breakfast in the diner before our cave tour. Nice standard diner food, not crowded, and a cool view into the pond. We also got a yummy marionberry shake after our tour for the drive down.

    We only stayed for one evening, but I think that was the right amount of time to be there. Cave tours are the main attraction, and there's also good hiking in the area, but you could fit those both into a one night stay. The Chateau will be undergoing an extensive renovation, supposed to start at the end of this year, so if you want to see it in its original form, this is the season to go.
