Gay Travel: Red Horse Cabin Re-Opens on the Grand Canyon's South Rim
Xanterra South Rim L.L.C., operator of lodges, restaurants and activities in Grand Canyon National Park, has completed restoration and rehabilitation of the "Red Horse Cabin," the oldest building at the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park. The two-bedroom cabin is now available to overnight guests.

Built in 1890, the cabin was moved from the Red Horse Ranch in 1902 by local businessman - and later United States Senator - Ralph Cameron for use as a tourist hotel at the head of the Bright Angel Trail. From 1910 to 1935 it served as the Post Office for Grand Canyon Village.

At that time, the cabin was slated for demolition, but noted architect Mary Elizabeth Jane Colter intervened and convinced building owner Santa Fe Railway and concessioner Fred Harvey Company to remodel and restore the cabin for guest use. Colter incorporated the cabin into the Bright Angel Lodge complex along with several other cabins. The cabin was used as guest accommodations for several years but for at least the past 40 years has been used for storage.
