Chateau at the Oregon Caves

Photo by David Morris

Towering high among the old growth in the Siskiyou National Forest is this six-story historic grand lodge. Nestled in a gorge against an embankment (enter from the parking lot on the fourth floor) and overlooking a trout grotto, the chateau is open from May 8 to September 29. Ease your way into wilderness an hour-and-a-half from Grants Pass with a leisurely drive up the winding access road. Book a room, dine in the third-floor restaurant and spend your day exploring on a ranger-guided historical, candlelit or caving tour. oregoncaveschateau.com
