I read somewhere that the Phantom Ranch is the most difficult hotel to reserve in the world. So first we called over a year before to get a reservation. All of our group of 6 called Xanterra and 2 of us actually got through. So a year later we got to actually go there. We planned everything else around this... More

This was a Rim To Rim this trip out. We came down North Kaibab (my GPS said 17.5 miles, not the 14 on the maps), checked in, got showered up (what a luxury), and had an excellent beef stew dinner (3 years ago the stew was fatty and not very good), with great corn bread and a chocolate cake we...

These are amazingly great cabins at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. They have to be reserved many months in advance. The setting has to been seen to really believe it exists.

Phantom Ranch is located close to the south rim at the bottom of the canyon. It has a campground, offers some basic food and you can stay in very basic lodges overnight.

This place is at the bottom of the Grand Canyon and everything there is brought in by mule. The only way to get there is to hike in or ride a mule in, but it's sooooo worth it. The food is amazing and the servers are wonderful!

After a nice stroll you're awarded with a cold drink in the beautiful surrounding of Phantom Ranch. Service is great.

We had a 5:00 dinner and arrived at 5:06 which is supposed to be a no no. We were greeted and seated. There were platters of New York Strip Steaks and baked potatoes. Lettuce salad, corn, peas and cornbread. Chocolate cake came later. We talked with a couple that had hiked part of the PCT. After walking eight miles downhill... More
