If you're looking for a quiet retreat in an unusual place, consider this six-story wood-frame lodge on the grounds of the national monument. Virtually unchanged since it was built in 1934, it has a rustic authenticity and steep gabled roofs. Rooms, all with their original furnishings, have canyon or waterfall views—the bare walls, old-fashioned radiators, and simple bedding are part of the charm. The dining room serves decent regional fare, using local wines, produce,
and even buffalo from a nearby ranch.
