If you have been following the news or our Facebook page, our business was under threat from the Mangum Fire. We evacuated Jacob Lake on Friday, July 12th, and thanks to the generosity of many of our Jacob Lake family and friends, we found temporary shelter in nearby Kanab, Utah, at the Kanab Middle School, and then at Parry Lodge. During this time, we were overwhelmed with an abundance of love and support from the people of Kanab and Fredonia who brought us food, cots to sleeps on, and comforting words and prayers. Thankfully, the Mangum Fire that consumed over 70,000 acres of forest barely missed us, largely due to the heroic efforts of the firefighters, and perhaps some luck and divine intervention.
Hotel Rooms Available
We are officially back in business but not at full capacity. Our cabins and motel rooms are currently unavailable due to ongoing restoration efforts, but our hotel rooms are now operating and we are taking reservations. You can book online or call our front desk to reserve your room at 928-643-7232.
Our famous cookies and shakes are now available. Our dining room is also open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with a limited menu. The gift shop, store, gas station, the To-Go section is now open, and we have deli sandwiches available in our store. We look forward to serving you again!
