Cave Housing















Deb:
While we were visiting the Oregon Caves, we stayed at The Chateau, a rustic hotel built in 1934. Along with it's log cabin ambiance and original Monterey furniture, it has no elevator, no air conditioning, no television, and no phones in the rooms. Built into the side of the slope, the building is six stories high. We, of course, stayed on the top floor. The top two pictures are the front and side. The next two pictures are the back of the building. If you look closely at the pictures you can see the tiny top floor with the dinky windows (guess it could be the attic.) We stayed in the two connected rooms on the far right side in the back (a suite!)
Quiet, peaceful, and surrounded by the beauty of natural elements, it is a lovely place to retreat, read a good book, take a walk, and talk to one another.
This last picture is the entrance to the cave. See that hole in the middle?

The name of the place we stayed was The Chateau at the Oregon Caves. Their website is:

We stayed in a Queen Suite, which was 2 connected rooms, one with a queen bed, chair, and bathroom with/tub & shower, the other room had a daybed, 2 chairs, and a bathroom with toilet only

The website for the Oregon Caves is:

The Cave entrance is a short walk across the road from The Chateau.
