In 2021 the Kaibab Lodge came under new ownership. We couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this resort and be able to call this beautiful paradise our home. And, we really can’t wait to meet you, welcome you to our resort, hear about your adventures! And, help you enjoy the Grand Canyon and all its wonders.
We have ambitious plans to expand the resort by adding cabins, high-speed internet access, and rim to rim shuttle service just to name just a few of the improvements we’re taking on right away.
While internet access has been limited in past years we are expecting to open with wifi access surrounding the property in 2022
The Kaibab Lodge is the nearest lodge outside the north entrance of Grand Canyon National Park. Situated in the North Kaibab National Forest, the The Kaibab Lodge is only five miles from the entrance of the Park.
President Theodore Roosevelt created the Grand Canyon Game Preserve in 1906. The game preserve which includes 612,736 acres (2,479.65 km2) of the Kaibab National Forest, is “set aside for the protection of game animals and birds,” and is “to be recognized as a breeding place therefore.”
For those wanting to be as close as possible to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, the Kaibab Lodge is indeed the perfect option for lodging outside the north entrance of the Park.
A combination of different cabin sizes are available to guests including a single room, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom cabins. The cabins can sleep from two to eight people. All come with a private bathroom, and many have a mini-fridge, microwave, sitting area, and a porch/balcony.
Since the lodge is in a secluded, remote location, there are no televisions or phones in the rooms. There is also no cell phone coverage in the entire region at the moment. We are looking to add wifi capabilities throughout the property in 2022.
Pet-friendly and accessible rooms are available upon request.
With the high elevation, summers are mild and delightful. The setting of the Kaibab Lodge is surely beautiful with its meadows and trees. Guests can enjoy the amenities of the main lodge when not relaxing back at their cabin.
The main lodge offers an on-site restaurant, registration, lounge, old stone fireplace, and gift shop. Before embarking on a day to the Canyon or when returning for the evening, the restaurant is open each morning serving breakfast and each evening serving dinner. Dinner is casual with various entrees, hot sandwiches, appetizers, desserts, drinks, beer, and wine. A children’s menu is also available.
Commonly seen are large wild animals that include white-tailed deer, mule deer, elk, pronghorn, wild turkey and coyote. Cougar, bobcat, and black bear are seen less frequently. Bison also live in the forest and national park.
At almost 9,000 feet, the North Rim Grand Canyon Resort & Kaibab Lodge has generally been a seasonal lodge open from May 15 to October 15.
We are incredibly excited about the possibilities starting in the 2022 season. In past years the entire North Rim of the Grand Canyon has largely been closed. Starting in the winter of 2021 the road to the North Rim is expected to be plowed for the first time through the entire winter as the area prepares and plans to open for year round visitors.
We’re excited to offer the opportunity for year round recreation including many winter activities such as snow machining, cross country skiing, and more.
