This ranch/resort promotes itself as being on the rim of the Grand Canyon. It is in fact 15 miles away by an unimproved dirt road. Accomodations are cabin or tipi and very basic, but expensive. Meals are supposed to be authentic cowboy fare, but they were mediocre at best. Dinner was a tough steak, frozen ear of corn, potatoes, roll and a salad with iceberg lettuce and a tomoto slice. Dessert was a gooey underdone chocolate mess that was unedible. We paid $374.00 for one night, and unless you are willing to pay an additional $119.00 pp to take a helicopter ride, you probably won't see the Grand Canyon from here. There was very little authentic about this weekend except we feel we were duped by misleading advertising. Aug 2006
