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.

Awsome location. The main lodge is gorgeous. We stayed in a hotel room - very basic and small. Adequate room. CleanThe restuarant was a serious disapointment and very expensive. Service for 3 of the 5 meals was world class slow. One of the breakfasts was 40 minutes coming, over cooked and cold. The prime rib buffet was excellent. For lunch, the buffalo burger is the excellent.

The Finish of the Grand Canyon Nation Park
If you plan on staying at the Grand Canyon Lodge - North Rim, make sure that you make a reservation at least a year in advance. We were there for approximately four hours, taking some of the trails overlooking the canyon. Some of these trails are extremely difficult for anyone having walking problems. The scenery was breathtaking.
