Bright Angel Lodge & Cabins

    Bright Angel Lodge & Cabins
 in Grand Canyon


Bright Angel Lodge & Cabins, a member of Historic Hotels of America since 2012, was built in 1935, has a natural, rustic character, and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Designed by famed architect Mary E J Colter, Bright Angel Lodge has always been a popular place to stay for those looking to be in the center of South Rim activity. Located just a few feet from the canyon rim, Bright Angel Lodge is the check-in point for the world-famous Grand Canyon mule rides.

Bright Angel Lodge has a family-style restaurant, which is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The Arizona Room, another option for lunch and dinner, features Southwestern cuisine. During the warm summer months, the lodge offers an old-fashioned ice cream fountain. Bright Angel Lodge also houses a transportation/tours/activities desk, lounge, gift store, and history room.

Buckey O’Neill and Red Horse Cabins
Two of the lodge’s 50 cabins provide a historical setting for guests wanting to make their stay at Grand Canyon memorable. The most famous location, appropriate named the “Buckey O'Neill Cabin,” was built in the 1890s by William "Buckey" O'Neill. O'Neill was a member of Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders and was also an author and judge in his native Arizona. Prior to being killed in action in Cuba in 1898, he was instrumental in establishing what would eventually become the Grand Canyon Railway. O’Neill’s cabin was later incorporated into the Bright Angel Lodge as guest accommodations by architect Mary E J Colter. Today it’s a cozy suite with spectacular views of the canyon.

Originally built in 1890, the Red Horse Cabin was moved from the Red Horse Ranch to the head of the Bright Angel Trail in 1902. This cabin features a sitting area and one bedroom. From 1910 to 1935 it served as the Post Office for Grand Canyon Village. When the cabin was later scheduled for demolition, architect Mary E J Colter intervened and convinced building owner Santa Fe Railway and concessioner Fred Harvey Company to remodel and restore the cabin for guest use. For many years it was a storage facility, but Xanterra Parks & Resorts updated the cabin to today’s standards of building and comfort while maintaining historical integrity.

Bright Angel Lodge & Cabins is located in Grand Canyon National Park.
