Pick up some food or bring your own to picnic on the veranda while you enjoy the views!

The greater lodge complex also offers a Post Office, Saloon, Deli in the Pines, Gift Shop, the North Rim Visitor Center, and public restrooms. There is no parking on the grounds of the lodge, so park in the large Visitor Center parking lot to access the area.

In collaboration with the Union Pacific Railroad, the National Park Service oversaw the construction of this rustic lodge and its associated cabins in 1927–1928. Architect Gilbert Stanley Underwood utilized Kaibab Limestone and ponderosa pine logs from the site to complete the project in 1928. Four years later, a fire destroyed nearly all of the main lodge and two cabins. Efforts to rebuild began in 1936, and the lodge was rebuilt to ensure it could withstand heavy snow.

The lodge has been in operation since it reopened in 1936, earning the prestigious designation as a National Historic Landmark on May 28, 1987.
