Affiliated with Lees Ferry Anglers, this motel is the area’s de facto fly anglers’ headquarters and tends to stay filled up with people who are here to fish for the Colorado’s huge rainbow trout. Its newer, more expensive rooms are standard motel units with combination tub/showers; they’re the best and most predictable rooms in the Vermilion Cliffs area. Older rooms, in an interesting stone-walled building, have knotty pine walls and showers only. The lodge is close to some spectacular balanced rocks, and it’s about 11 miles east to Lees Ferry. The views are unforgettable; the restaurant is good if perhaps a touch pricey.
