Goodfellow Lodge

Escape to a piece of history above the world's largest travertine bridge

Goodfellow Lodge at Tonto Natural Bridge State Park is a one-of-a-kind rustic hideaway in the middle of some of the most picturesque scenery in Arizona’s Rim Country. Nestled deep within Pine Canyon, this three-story cabin-style lodge was built in the 1920’s and has kept much of its early 20th-century charm. The lodge has 10 furnished bedrooms with private and communal restrooms, as well as a furnished basement suite with a private kitchenette with sink and refrigerator. The first floor features our beautiful wood cabin group dining area with picnic table seating, fireplace, and a large kitchen big enough for your group or catering company. Entertain on the outdoor veranda or the grass event area outside, or sit and spot any of our regular wildlife visitors, like deer and javelina. We invite you to visit Goodfellow Lodge and consider it for your next group visit, wedding, or overnight event.

 

AMENITIES

The Dining Room and Outdoor Veranda are fully furnished with picnic bench-style seating as well as small two-person tables placed next to the dining room windows, giving a clear view of the park environment. The Dining Room also has a fireplace, old-time stove, and even a piano (please note, the piano is not regularly tuned).

The Kitchen is supplied with various cooking items, like pots and pans and utensils, as well as dishes, glassware, and silverware. We suggest that if you intend to cook or bake beyond basic meal preparation that you bring those necessary items with you.

 

The Goodfellow Lawn accommodates 100 -150 people and is ADA accessible. The event area also has freestanding  restrooms with tiled floors and running water. Guests can also rent a wood BBQ or two propane grills.

The Roosevelt Suite is a private room with restroom and shower, vanity, a small refrigerator, microwave, cabinets, and kitchen counter. It is available for rental and is ADA accessible.

ACCESSIBILITY

The lodge was recently renovated to provide modern conveniences to our guests including heating and air conditioning, indoor plumbing, and additional improvements to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
