The lodge's architect, Gilbert Stanley Underwood, was a national park specialist, having designed lodges at Zion and Grand Canyon before turning his T-square to Bryce in 1923. The results are worth a visit, even if you plan to sleep elsewhere, as this National Historic Landmark has been faithfully restored, right down to the lobby's huge limestone fireplace and log and wrought-iron chandelier. The bark-covered hickory furniture isn't original, but renovators ordered it from the same company that created the originals. Inside the historic building are a restaurant and a gift shop, as well as plenty of information on park activities. Guests of the lodge, which is 2 miles south of park entrance, can stay in the numerous log cabins on the wooded grounds.
