Forest Service Restrictions
In an attempt to protect the Kaibab Forest and due to the regulations of the Forest Service, there are some amenities we are not able to offer our guests. Because of our dry climate of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and heavy fire restrictions, cooking is not allowed in any of the rooms or on our property including: coffee makers, portable stoves, or grills. Smoking is also prohibited except in vehicles and designated areas. Two recent fires destroyed 130,000 acres of beautiful forest and countless wildlife. We invite our guests to join us in protecting this beautiful forest for future generations.
Cabins and motel rooms do not have television, internet, or phones. However, for those who would like television, our hotel rooms have cable TV. Since Jacob Lake Inn is nearly 50 miles from the nearest town, our options are quite limited when it comes to these services. We invite our guests to take the opportunity to unplug from technology, explore the scenic woods and trails around our hotel, visit the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, spend quality time with family or friends, admire the beautiful Native American art, enjoy a good meal, or pick up a good book.
