As iconic as the National park it resides in, Phantom Ranch is a unique and living part of history. It’s a working restaurant and a rest-stop for tourists. But, it is also home to those that staff it. The intrepid and the nature-loving come from all over the world to live in the Phantom Ranch bunkhouse and be a part of the experience of serving visitors, in a continuum that has been part of the Grand Canyon scene since 1922, when architect Mary Colter’s stone ranch became a part of the Grand Canyon floor.
- Phantom Ranch is a restaurant that has been serving customers at the bottom of the Grand Canyon since 1922.
- With only a landline and sporadic Internet access, Phantom Ranch is a place where a tourist can truly get away from it all.
- The restaurant and bunkhouse staffers live and eat together as well as work together.
“The staff is made up of different people, from all walks of life. Although, these ranchers all have one thing in common. They enjoy being set apart, while also being a part of something bigger than themselves.”
