Directions: The entrance to Chateau Lorane is approximately 1/4 mile south of Lorane on Siuslaw River Rd. As you pass the 2nd store (Lorane General Store and Deli), keep to your right at the "Y". (Don't make a sharp right onto Old Lorane Road, thought.) Follow Siuslaw River Road about 1/4 mile and you will see the entrance to Chateau Lorane on your right. It sits about a mile off the road. See the map on the Chateau Lorane website at
