Canyon Lodge’s five new buildings opened in 2015 and 2016 (two additional lodges date back to the 1990s). The latest lodges were constructed with the eco-friendly LEED process. They have the feel of a contemporary resort, complete with thoughtful touches like subway-tiled bathrooms and sleek black wooden headboards. The cabins, on the other hand, are a bit dated—but I find their log cabin-style furnishings rather inviting, and they’re much more spacious. Don’t expect canyon views: The lodging complex actually sits a half-mile from the rest of the village in a nondescript lodgepole pine forest, and you’ll have to drive to the canyon itself. And the sheer number of rooms and the super-busy village area mean Canyon isn’t the place for a quiet, off-the-grid vibe.
