Lonely Planet review
There’s something comforting about this lodge, 18 miles from the North Rim, hugged on two sides by a lovely meadow and on a third by ponderosa and aspen forest. It’s a simple, quiet, low-key place, where the biggest excitement comes from counting deer that wander from the woods to graze. The accommodation options vary considerably – don’t expect down comforters, feather pillows and luxurious bath supplies. The oldest, cabins one to six, offer simple, worn-out decor with wood floors and walls, plain beds and a porch overlooking the meadow. Newer cabins resemble one-room RVs more than cabins, are quite tiny and do not have porches with meadow views. Despite the feeling that you’re staying in a room c 1952, or perhaps because of it, the older cabins are a better choice. The recommended and modern Eastview units, bright earthy orange rooms painted with petroglyphs and furnished with rough-hewn wood beds and nightstands, sit in two two-story log buildings. Each unit has a small porch overlooking the woods and field. Most cabins sleep up to four; Sam’s Cabin has four beds and sleeps up to six. A casual restaurant flanked by windows serves basic, tasty fish, burgers and pasta and offers a full bar. Breakfast features whole-wheat pancakes and yogurt with granola, and it’ll prepare a picnic lunch with one night’s notice. Ask about ATV tours to canyon overlooks in the Kaibab National Forest.
