This historic property, constructed mainly in the 1920s and '30s, is the premier lodging facility in the North Rim area. The main building has locally quarried limestone walls and timbered ceilings. Lodging options include small, rustic cabins; larger cabins (some with a canyon view and some with two bedrooms); and slightly more modern motel rooms. The two-bedroom Pioneer cabins sleep up to six people. The hand-carved Aspen lodge furniture adds to the rustic atmosphere.
However, the best of the bunch are the Rim View Western, especially log cabins 301 and 306, which have private porches perched on the lip of the canyon. Other cabins with fabulous canyon views include 305, 309, and 310. Because of their premier location, these cabins are snapped up fast and need to be reserved a year in advance.

I stayed here 5 years ago in one of the cabins and just loved it. The views from everywhere are incredible - particularly from the lobby and the restaurant. There's a row of rocking chairs along the edge of the resort looking right into the canyon. It's an amazing way to relax at the end of a long day of hiking. The cabin was small and somewhat rustic - but that's to be expected. The experience was incredible and I would go back in a heartbeat.
