Grand Canyon Lodge-North Rim is located in Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona at Bright Angel Point.

The only lodging on the North Rim, this renowned Lodge and location is more remote and less crowded than the South Rim and features dense, forested trails in its nearby surroundings. It offers a variety of cabins and motel-style rooms. The lodge was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1987.
