Restore Oregon is pleased to offer a unique opportunity to venture off the beaten path and explore one of the great treasures of the National Park Service.  Thanks to our relationship with Friends of the Oregon Caves and Chateau, a special package has been created to take you behind-the-scenes to learn about the Chateau’s rich history, geological wonders, Monterey furniture, and current efforts to preserve it for future generations.

A National Historic Landmark, the Chateau at the Oregon Caves is a rustic yet refined six-story Depression Era masterpiece built in 1934 as a respite for travelers visiting the adjacent caves.  Designed by Gust Lium it stands in the Oregon Caves National Monument in Southern Oregon’s Siskiyou Mountains, near Cave Junction.

Boasting National Park Service rustic style architecture and exterior siding of shaggy Port Orford cedar bark, the Chateau was constructed in a marble canyon astride a steep ravine and makes exceptional use of the land’s natural contours. It even accommodates part of the nearby Cave Creek that is diverted into an artificial stream bed running through the dining room.  The Chateau’s interior reflects its rustic setting, highlighted by 30-inch-diameter log posts supporting open beam ceilings.

Explore, hike, relax, and revel in the confluence of the built and natural environment with other RO members.  Perhaps combine your stay with theater in Ashland or other Southern Oregon attractions. The possibilities are endless!
