The road to the North Rim opens on May 15th and apparently the following weekend is THE time to do Rim to Rim (we were part of that crowd!). Because of this, the resort seemed busy. I was really glad that we made dinner reservations ahead of time (super easy, just email them) as there were a TON of people waiting on tables. Food options include the main restaurant along with a bar that I think has food and a smaller little snack area (sandwiches and pizza, I think). The lodge was wonderful! We stayed in one of the cabins and the view was amazing. The beds were comfortable and the heater worked great. Hot water worked well too. If you have small children, I'd keep them close as the canyon is a stone's throw away. The lodge has an absolutely breath taking view of the canyon, you won't regret making the trek out to the North Rim. Much less people than the South and I think it has superior views. The Lodge is the only hotel on the North Rim but if you can't get reservations, don't fret! Just watch for cancellations daily. We were able to get a cabin on the exact day we needed, just be patient! The North Kaibab trail is amazing, just make sure you know your limits. We did Rim to Rim in a day but only after a LOT of preparation. Parking seemed to fill up fast but I think there's a shuttle from the lodge to the trail head. Absolutely recommend!

Great stay

I loved the the simple decor of the room. The bed was comfy, good shampoo in the bathroom, coffee maker in the room. Easy access to the second floor. There is a decent restaurant close enough to walk to.

What's not to love about the GC!

Spent two nights in a cabin about 100 feet from the rim...WOW! Cute little log cabin. Very old and very rustic. As the cabins are close to one another, fellow guests were quite noisey and didn't seem to respect others space. Ate 2 dinners and a breakfast in the lodge...georgeous! Good food but pricy but consider everything is brought in...and out. Great wait staff! Five years ago we did the North and South rims in the same day. This trip was much more relaxed. Put it on your list!

Place that makes you feel that you are on vacation

The green colored North Rim lodge is a picture on a cliff. Dining at the restaurant with a view over the canyon is an experience that you will remember for a long time. The log cabins are built in the woods within 100 yds from canyon cliffs. North Rim canyons are not of grand scale like South Rim but you will see canyons after canyons far away. It is not too difficult to reserve a mule trip down to the canyon at affordable cost. As a bonus you get access to East Rim. Since NR is a bit far from Las Vegas and 90 min away from Kanab it is wise to sleep in NR.

Less than 15% of Grand Canyon Visitors make it to the North Rim

An extirely different experience than what you get at the South Rim. Another 1200 feet in altitude, so it is wholly another ecosystem. The Lodge and cabins are remarkable. And, if you have a truck (4WD not necessary BUT IS helpful), make sure to take the 17.7 mile drive (which takes close to an hour) that runs to Point Sublime. Be prepared for a 270 degree view of the Canyon.
