We are a family of five--two adults, 3 kids. We stayed in a Pioneer Cabin for two nights. We loved the location (in the park and steps away from the Grand Canyon) and really enjoyed the lodge. The lodge has a very family friendly restaurant, friendly and helpful staff, good facilities (i.e. beautiful gift shop, western style saloon which serves coffee, pastries and mixed drinks, a take-out restaurant for a quick bite and an amazing deck with incredible views of the canyon.
However, we were underwhelmed with the cabin. (The following night we stayed in a two connecting, Western cabins at Bryce Canyon). While these two properties are both run by Forever Resorts they are world aparts in terms of comfort, cleanliness and luxury. The Pioner cabin was tight for a family of five and the room really needed a good cleaning. While the bathroom, floors and surfaces were clean we found lots of dust and spider webs between the windows and screens, on the window ledges and in corner areas throughout the cabin. The room was very dusty and really could use a good vacuuming to suck out what appeared to be a year's worth of dust build-up. Clearly, The Grand Canyon Lodge is a far superior option to camping but in retrospect, I should have requested a more thorough cabin cleaning.

- 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.
