Old and worn Lodge but in a perfect location for birding the canyon area. Basic room was clean enough, equipped with dishes and pots for simple cooking. Fridge, hotplate, microwave, coffee maker was sufficient for our simple needs over our 2 night stay in February. Mice seem to be an ongoing issue. We found a dead one in a trap by the bed upon our arrival, which was exchanged by the care taker for a new empty trap. Nights are cold in the mountains that time of year. Bring warm clothes. My husband hiked a nearby trail and encountered ice and snow. I was glad to have a turtleneck sweater, mitts and a hat for the early morning. Office closed down early ( about 5 pm) but offered a selection of movies to view in the room, some food items, postcards, tee shirts and gifts. A highlight (and why we chose this lodge) is the wildlife viewing area where several bird feeders attract many bird species and animals including a coati. Chairs and benches are available here offering easy and comfortable views as the wildlife arrive and depart. Great for taking photos. Super hiking trails are steps from the lodge. I would book here again if ever I get back to Arizona.
