  • Stay if you're lucky enough to get a reservation

    by John R on 2018-09-10 05:41 pm

    We just spent 2 nights in the dorms at Phantom in the middle of our rim to rim hike. Breakfast and dinners are at 5:30 and 6:30 AM and PM, were served family style and were delicious! Especially considering that all of the food is brought down by mule. They told me they get up at 0130 to start cooking the 5am breakfast! They come and knock on the dorm doors at 4:40 to way you up for the 5am breakfast. The dorms each have a shower and toilet and towels and bedding are provided.

    I have been trying to get a reservation here for a long time. We got one of the last call in before the lottery system. So Everything here lived up to expectations. The Hike down bright angel trail was perfect.
    So staying here was quite a treat for a backpacker. I did not have to cook or set up a tent. We had dorm bed steak dinner along with 5 a.m. breakfast. Worth every penny......They run place very well. do not be late for dinner. they also sell beer and wine and you can send a post card.

  • Phantom Ranch - list of cabins and dorms

    by Duane B on 2018-08-30 04:36 pm

    This review is to just list all of the lodging available at Phantom Ranch (excludes the campgrounds). ... Okay, the place is great, nothing beats the Grand Canyon!


    There are a total of 11 cabins

    2 __ 2 person cabins, 1 queen bed, 1 toilet, 1 sink (?), 0 shower (?)
    7 __ 4 person cabins, 2 bunk beds, 1 toilet, 1 sink, 0 shower
    2 __ 10 person cabins, 5 bunk beds, ? toilet, ? sink, ? shower


    There are 4 dorms

    2 female dorms - holds 10 persons each
    2 male dorms - holds 10 persons each

    5 bunk beds, 1 toilet, 1 sink, 1 shower

    Other Buildings

    There are 2 buildings I don't know what they are used for. 1 is in between Cabins 1 and 2 and the other is in between Cabins 9 and 10.

    The Cowboy Dorm is a private residence apparently for the guy who takes care of the mules. He and his wife seemed like a nice couple, but they didn't like me heading towards their cabin. I was just trying to read the sign above the door.

    The Ranger Station is just south of the cabins. I believe the Rangers also sleep in that building.

    The building just south of the Ranger Station I believe is for maintenance workers (i.e. not staff for the canteen).


    I don't know how a 10 person dorm differs from a 10 person cabin. The cabin looks bigger, but I've never been inside one.


  • Worth being on the Bucket List

    by Pdonatyandkids on 2018-08-28 05:41 pm

    This was a last minute decision. We started looking into places to stay in the Park and realized that if you wait there is a possibility that a spot could open up at Phantom Ranch. We first started noticing bunk house beds openings but by waiting a little bit longer the opportunity came up for a 4 bed cabin. So, if you have the patience and are in a position to go at any time and did not do the lottery; this is Still possible. Listen to what the park tells you if you are hiking in. We hiked down the South Kailbab trail at 6:30 in the morning as suggested by the park and they were right. By the time we got in at noon, temps at the bottom were about 97 in the Shade. Even if it is hot there is plenty to do, short walks, hanging in the stream and meeting other individuals who have also come to stay at the ranch. Highly suggest adding the steak dinner to the reservation. The meal is family style with plenty of food for everyone and was worth every penny. We also ordered the breakfast and it was a little pricy for what was received but the food energy is needed for anyone hiking out. Once again, we listened to the park when they said if you are hiking out to get on the trail by 5:30 am. We took the bright angels trail out and reached the top by noon. The cabin was cute and had a sink, toilet inside along with AC. The cabin was clean. Showers were in a communal bathhouse. A Canteen is available to all guests and those passing thru and it is open most of the time. It has lemonade, soda, beer and other items for sale to guests. Plus it has all type of games and books which can be used by guests. My one disappointment was we were told if you give the Facility a postcard it would be stamped with a special mailed from the Phantom Ranch postmark. My kids mailed out several postcards including some to themselves as mementos and this did not occur as we were lead to believe.

  • Unique place.

    by John A on 2018-08-26 02:57 pm

    Spent one night at the Ranch after riding down on mules. It is a unique place with a rich history. They have cabins you can rent but must make reservations and also have camp sites to rent with reservations. The employee went out of their way to make you feel at home.
