Set back 1/4 mile or so from the rim, the Maswik Lodge offers spacious rooms and cabins that have been comfortably modernized without losing their appealing rustic character. If you don’t mind roughing it a bit, the 28 old cabins, available only in summer, have lots of character, with high ceilings and ceiling fans—they’re my top choice away from the rim. If you prefer modern appointments, lots of space, and air-conditioning, opt for one of the large Maswik North rooms, which also have refrigerators and coffeemakers. Second-floor rooms have high ceilings and balconies. Note: As of 2019, the Maswik South buildings are being demolished and replaced with a new lodge, so confusion is likely to reign for the next couple of years.
