Hermits Rest

About: Hermit Rd, Grand Canyon National Park, AZ 86023 928-638-7888

Description: SOUTH RIM. Another architectural beauty designed by Mary E.J. Colter, this stone structure was built to resemble the naive efforts of a local prospector and is a tribute to reclusive 19th-century miner Louis Boucher. A massive stone fireplace, substantial wood furniture, and Native American textiles impart a natural, homey feel to the place, which serves (now as then) as a travelers’ rest stop. Inside, you’ll find a gift shop, refreshments for sale, and restrooms  all frequently sought after in the Canyon area.

Hours: Daily Sunrise-Sunset
