Grand Canyon Lodge - North Rim

I went in November of 2019. Drove first to the South Rim and then to the North Rim. Though the East Rim was nearby, our time was limited. Maybe next time.
If you can, see both the South and North Rims. Though the Lodge and cabins were already closed for the winter season, the view was still breathtaking.

Much more scenic than the south rim
We've been to the south rim multiple times and in different times of the year, but this was our first visit to the north rim.
First of all it attracts only 10% the number of visitors to the south rim. Secondly it is densely wooded, filled with wildlife and definitely more scenic.
The north rim is much smaller with much fewer viewpoints, but the views are spectacular. In October the trees were changing color and the yellows and reds made us feel like we were in New England. We saw many deer and a bison.
The cafe at the main visitors center is open with outdoor seating.

Bucket list location
We stayed in a western cabin on the last weekend of the season, it was very nice and much better than the frontier and other cabins. Loved the two queen beds, roomy comfortable cabins with gas fireplace, and of course, the proximity to the rim of the Grand Canyon. These cabins are quite expensive, but many will appreciate the special nature of this stay, for special occasions, or just checking one off the bucket list. Hopefully COVID is no longer an issue when they reopen next spring, but I appreciated the attention given to safety in the dining setup. Unfortunately, only about 50 % of visitors wore masks, so there were some uncomfortable moments passing on the narrow trails. It seems there is a mid day flux of local visitors, which unfortunately makes the park feel crowded around the lodge, only to thin out again by evening.

Highly recommend staying inside park at the lodges. It is rustic but offers everything you need and is accessible to fantastic views right outside your door. Cabins are clean, spacious, and have everything you need for a comfortable stay. Staff are friendly and very accommodating.

Dirty cabin in times of coronavirus
It’s the only place to stay on the north rim if you are not camping. Prices are high for rustic cabins which have not been updated in years. But what is worse, is the fact that they are not clean. I was glad I had my chlorox wipes, I would not trust housekeeping as there was visible dirt on many high touch surfaces. The floor was the worst. Filthy. I had to clean it myself with towels. See photo of one of the multiple towels I used to wipe the floor. Ugh. Reading other reviews it looks like dirty cabins are common. Bring your own cleaning supplies if you stay here
