Why we like it

When exploring the Grand Canyon, where better to stay than on the edge of the canyon overlooking this magnificent landscape? Spectacular views are a highlight of this lodge set on the South Rim of this great natural wonder. Walking trails are easily accessed from here and suit all levels making this a great base to explore this area on foot.
