I simply loved the Chateau with its ambiance, creaky floors, vintage fixtures and a glimpse at a time without air conditioning, television, internet, cell phones...
The grounds were simply beautiful with paths, streams and trees.

This is one of the great historic park lodges, built in the early 1930s. Huge windows everywhere. Rooms were vintage but comfortable. 1950s cafe, and modern restaurant. Staff is friendly and attentive. A little pricey, but worth it.
This hotel is wonderful, and just oozes history and charm. There is no cell service or WIFI, but here are lovely rooms filled with books and games to keep you entertained. The views are wonderful, trails right next to the hotel to hike. My room...More
We stayed for the experience and really enjoyed it. The Chateau is historic, it brought us back in time when travelling was a luxury as well as an adventure. The room was basic and a bit dark, so that was our motivation to relax at...More
The charm of a 100-year-old hotel with the amenities of a modern hotel. The rooms were quiet, clean and very comfortable. The lobby made a great escape from the smokey outdoors. It's right across the parking lot from the national monument, so you can't beat...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!
