The lodge is charming, lovely, and peaceful. We enjoyed the 1930s vintage construction and decor - everything has been maintained as original as possible. The desk and serving staff were always pleasant, friendly, and helpful.

We stayed at the Chateau on the last leg of our family vacation because we wanted to tour the caves. Our children are teenagers, so they were a bit bored with the lack of TV and wifi, but I was glad to have an excuse...More
My husband and I have stayed at the Chateau before and loved it so much, we returned with our older children and parents. This peaceful, quiet, beautifully historic spot is a great place to unwind, unplug and experience the amazing caves. Dave at the front...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!
