We had a rim-side Pioneer Cabin for our 1 night stay at Grand Canyon North Rim. We loved the rustic furniture (especially the bunk beds and writing desk) and the bathroom which was absolutely spotless. We had a full size fridge and coffee maker, what more do you need for a stay in a log cabin. After check-in we made a reservation for dinner (there was no way we were going to miss out on a meal in that dining room with its spectacular views of the Canyon). Our cabin was ready and the only down side at the Lodge is that you have to leave your car in the main car park and carry your luggage to your cabin. We were getting quite hungry by this time but after checking a clock in the Lodge we realised we had gained 1 hour as we had entered a different time zone. Although this gave us extra time to stare at the Grand Canyon it also meant an extra wait for our dinner reservation!! There are plenty of look out areas dotted about and plenty of chairs to sit and admire the view. In the Lodge itself there are comfy sofas and chairs and floor to ceiling windows. When our meal time finally arrived we stood looking where there were empty tables as, of course, we wanted a window. The waiter finally called our name and started his long walk, where were we going? No it couldn't be, we are never that lucky! But YES we had a window table (and I'm sure it was the best in the room). It was just as if we were sitting in the Canyon, absolutely stunning!! Service was excellent and the food really good (especially the sirloin steak). We did not want to leave. We had a really good night's sleep (there is no air-conditioning but just open your windows, there are fly screens to stop unwanted bugs). Had our alarm set for early next morning and just had a short walk to take some wonderful shots of the sunrise. We picked some breakfast items up from the cafe and sat right on the edge of the Grand Canyon. Days don't start much better than this!! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found it much more enjoyable and beautiful than the over crowded South Rim. On our way out we called at Point Imperial which was absolutely stunning and well worth a visit.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The more remote North Rim offers up its beauty and solitude to those willing to make a little longer trek to cooler temperatures and greener vegetation of the Grand Canyon's less visited rim. Time means little here in this Nirvana for nature lovers…abundant forest beauty and wrap-around scenic splendor as sheer walls hold in the Colorado River a mile below. The only developed lodging within the National Park’s North Rim boundaries this historic treasure has cabins and lodging tucked into the trees and dotting the canyon edge. The historic dining room with wall to ceiling windows gives diners the unique opportunity to take in the Canyon's views and tasteful regional and sustainable delights for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Reservations are recommended. For guests seeking a unique remembrance of their visit to this special place, there is a gift store and convenience store located at the North Rim. Authentic Native American handcrafts, jewelry and merchandise that is U.S.A. made by local and regional artists provide an array of gift items for guests to the Grand Canyon. Smell the pines, listen to the fluttering leaves of quaking aspen, and keep an eye out for a California condor, the largest bird in North America.
