“Rim View”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

It took almost two years to reserve a rim view cabin, finally I realized I had to call as soon as reservations were being accepted. If rim view is also your dream, here is some advice..there are only four cabins that are actually on the rim..others advertised as rim view are nice, much nearer than those in other areas..but not on the rim! The four cabins on the rim are 309, 306, 305 and 301..The porch of 309 provides a side rim view..the other three have porches directly over the rim. In fact if you or any of your party are acrophobic, these cabins aren't for you..
If you have a lot of luggage, the Lodge provides a shuttle from the main entrance to your cabin.

My husband and I requested two beds, and so we had a cabin for "four"..hmm, can't imagine that, but everyone has their own space requirements..For just two, the cabin was great. Nicely laid out, a front bed-sitting area with table, chairs and desk, a small walled off office area handy for equipment and charging electronics ..or privacy if you have lots of people..and a bathroom of reasonable size..There was a gas fireplace, a nice touch, but ran out of gas after the second night.

The Bright Angel Trail is steps from the rim view cabins, as is the transept trail, which connects the Main Lodge area with campgrounds/other cabins. Since I was traveling with a companion who was not going to hike long distances, I found the transept trail inviting and quiet..not with the hordes of other people generally on these trails..and with fine views.

The dinning options are few. I recommend the main dinning room if you can afford it..the views are wonderful and the food is quite good. Make reservations way in advance!! There is also a Tavern which serves food, but that was unrelentingly noisy and not inviting..but again, everyone is different. The deli makes very good sandwiches for excursions. All of these options are centered around or in the main lodge. The only wifi is a drive away at the General Store which serves the campground. There is another deli there and basic supplies.

I also highly recommend an excursion to Point Imperial, highest point in the park..astounding views!!

Room Tip: Cabins actually on the rim, with overlooking porches..301, 305, 306 and 309..not for the acrophobic!

stayed one night before a tour of grand canyon we were unsure what to expect, nature is the key, very rustic but comfy. rooms small but clean and tidy, beds a little small for both of us. beautiful scenery all around, would recommend for a night or two.

A pleasant surprise, with our rustic cabin very near the rim. Whilst the weather was very warm to hot, there was a cool breeze the cabins were comfortable and OK. They are small but very clean with yes you could describe as cozy. We stayed 2 nights in late August 2013.

We didn't realize that there were really no alternatives to eating in the cafe and restaurant. the cafe was OK but in our terms expensive for very basic food.

We enjoyed the stay.

Room Tip: Seek to get room or cabin close to the Main lodge and reception area and close to the Rim .

We really enjoyed this place. We had a rim-side cabin, and was very nice and cozy.
Cabins are spartan, but functional and clean. Beds are a little bit tight for two, however we sleeped well.
The position is incredible, just a few steps down and we was on the path to the bright angel trail, where we enjoyed an unforgettable colorful sunset on the canyon.
A special word to the restaurant... food is good (not great) and fair priced for the place, however 90% of the time your eyes are in love with the magnificent view, so food itself is secondary... this is one of the places will remain stamped in my brain for years. So be sure to have dinner or breakfast here.
A final great thanks to the restaurant front desk staff... since our kids was very tired they arranged us to get in an hour in advance of our reservation time.. really very kind. Still Tanks.

Very rustic, yes, but that's what we loved about it. The log cabins are well kept, but they are small. There's no internet or TV to bother you! We were there in September, so the temperature was cooler, no AC needed.

We stayed two nights in July. It was perfect for our family of four with a short walk to the North Rim and great hiking trails. There is little privacy if your windows are open but that didn't seem to be a problem. We did not anticipate that the only food options were the expensive (and marginal) cafe or the more expensive dining room. It was probably our fault in not reading the web site better. We just worked around that by bringing our camp stove to a picnic area and having a lovely dinner right on the Rim. That was an experience that might not have been possible on the more crowded South Rim.

Room Tip: Be prepared that it is a walk from the parking lot to you cabin while carrying your luggage.

We only stayed one night as we were on a National Park tour, but the lodge was everything we had hope for. With cabins right on the edge of the rim the scenery was great. Although rustic with no internet, TV or radio, if you stay at any National Parks, you realize this is the norm, the cabin was warm and comfy. The propane fireplace was a plus as was the old fashion bathroom. Not five star by any means but an experience we'll never forget.

Room Tip: Choose a room as close to the rim as possible
