We chose Jacob Lake Inn because it is about as close as one can get to the North Rim without being in the park. We stayed the night before entering into the park in order to have a very short, quick drive the next day.
We really enjoyed this little stop. I read a lot of reviews on Jacob Lake Inn and they varied widely. We were on a budget and took one of the least expensive rooms. It was clean, rustic, very cute. The only drawback was the sink, which was located in the main room(not in the bathroom). It had two spigots/two faucet handles. That made it difficult to get the proper water temperature. But, we managed.
The grounds were very nice with lots of trees and a little gazebo near a water feature that attracted many beautiful birds. We had happy hour and breakfast in the gazebo and enjoyed the birds immensely.
Dinner in the restaurant was surprisingly very good. Staff were all very nice.
We would highly recommend Jacob Lake Inn as a piece of the old West. Just be sure to ask about the room amenities so you have no surprises.
