“More than meets the eye...”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

The studio has more than just a gift shop. It is historic, scenic, offers great views from the back porch area and features great art works. When we were there artists from the Southwest were painting/watercoloring/etc. their images of the GC all along the rim from the hotels west past the studio. Many of their previous works were hung in the lower level of this facility. What a treat. A must-see during your walk along the south rim. Don't forget your camera for pictures inside as well as out. Truly part of the Grand Canyon experience.

“Talk about a cliffhanger!”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

This small studio is literally hanging on the side of the Canyon. It's is a little unnerving to walk around in. But knowing it's been there for decades calms the worry a bit. The books, artwork and photo selections were awesome.

“Rock Lookout over Canyon”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

It was just one of many wonderful spots but I loved how it was built into the side of the canyon. Great picture spot as you are over the canyon and have views from 3 sides.

“Beautiful views”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Awesome stone work making the building blend into the Canyon. Wonderful views. Many people sit outside eating box lunches and enjoying the view. The perfect place for it.

“Start of sunset from the balcony”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Amazing balcony - I watched the sunset from there; unfortunately the studio closes at 8 PM so I had to move.
