About 30 miles north of the North Rim park entrance, this lodge at the crossroads of Jacob Lake is always a busy spot in summer. While most of the units here are old cabins that tend to be cramped and old-fashioned, there are also two dozen modern motel-style rooms in a contemporary mountain-rustic lodge. I recommend these latter rooms, which are the inn’s only rooms with TVs, telephones, and high-speed Internet access. They’re more expensive than the cabins, but they are the nicest rooms in the area. Stock up on cookies at the inn’s bakery.
