A note way too late:  We found you by accident, as I connected dots in planning last summer's Tour o' Merica, from Georgia to the Canyon and points beyond.  Lees Ferry looked like a good place to stop on our 3rd day, which began in Albuquerque and meandered through Four Corners.

Yours was one of the most beautiful places we found—the cliffs awash in radiant colors at sunset and sunrise.  The boys loved the Army surplus field glasses, and the full moon that night made it all the more spectacular.

And you were kind—someone let me in early for coffee as I wandered around the morning of our excursion to the Canyon, and when I asked for an order of bacon so we could make breakfast sandwiches out of the bag of bagels we had in our room, he gave it to me on the house.

One of our most wonderful memories is of your place, and I'm sorry it took me this long to say thanks.


We had a great stay! Thanks for the best night of the whole Arizona trip! We hope to come back sometime.

Hello Friends,

We stayed with you May 15-16 & would like to tell you our stay was fantastic. The room was nice the food delicious & all the staff friendly & helpfull. (THE BEER WAS WOW) We asked for suggestions on things to do & got to do some of the coolest things we have ever done. Hiking a slot canyon & catching our very first Arizona sunset at a private place at Marble canyon. We stayed at a fancy suite in downtown Sedona & my wife & I agreed we would rather be back in our simple room at Lee's Ferry. Thanks to you & your staff for a great stay. We hope to see you again soon.

Visitor Reviews of Lees Ferry Lodge in Vermilion Cliffs

Hi everyone!!

We recently stayed at your lodge and wanted to tell you what a wonderful time we had. We went on some wonderful hikes (thank you Paul for the directions), the food was superb and the room was extremely comfortable. We really miss it and will be back, hopefully within 2 yrs.

I find myself looking at your website and our pictures that we took while there. It truly was the highlight our vacation! After visiting the North Rim, Kanab and Zion, Lees Ferry Lodge is the top spot. There's just something about the solitude, colors of the landscape and the people that keep calling to us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for a great time.

Hello to Paul, Dawn, their children, Charley and the chefs that we spoke with. Bill misses the giant pancakes!

Have a great fall!

Best Regards,

Peggy and Bill

We ate the best meal of the entire trip, and I dare say, the best road food I have ever had! Then got us a room that even Ophelia our Great Dane enjoyed. No radio. No Television. Nothing except the supreme luxury of dark and quiet. Slept like babies. Got up and had the heartiest, tastiest breakfast I've ever had. Swore I'd make this my hang out. There's a total absence of pretension here, yet wonderful, welcoming hospitality.
