This is a special place. We were here 7 years ago and this visit did not dissapoint. We had a cabin on the edge overlooking the canyon. Drawing the curtains in the morning, having a cup of tea in bed and looking at the view before you is truly inspirational/memorable. You leave your car in the car park and walk with you luggage to your cabin - buggies are available should you require them. The north rim is so different to the south (and a 1000 feet higher) and takes longer to get to it but in my opinion very much worth it. Do visit Imperial Point which is approximately 20 minutes from the Lodge. It is slighly higher in elevation than the lodge and is a must. The photos you take and show your friends when you return home will not be able to do it justice. So just admire the view and tell your friends that they will have to make the jouney themselves to really appreciate the grandeur and enormity of the canyon. There are many lovely walks around the edge of the canyon but remember you are over 8500 feet above sea level so heart rate will increase quicker. The restaurant has spectacular views across the canyon and we found the staff very attentive, food and service good. When we had dinner the night was upon us but to have breakfast with that backdrop is just magical. If you have time do take in some of the talks by the ranges - very interesting. Also on Fridays and Sunday evenings a telescope is set up on the terrace to view the stars/planets. If you are interested in the night sky this is for you as the sky is so clear you are able to see so much more.
- 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. The North Rim of the Grand Canyon is only open from mid May to mid October. ... more less
