Historic Ruby’s Inn

Ruby’s Inn at Bryce Canyon is a destination in and of itself. In 1916, Reuben C. (Ruby) Syrett brought his family to the wilds of Southern Utah, establishing a ranch near the present site of Ruby’s Inn. A few weeks after his arrival, another nearby rancher told Ruby about the canyon called Bryce. Ruby and his family made a Sunday visit to the canyon rim and were so impressed by what they saw that they became hosts to its visitors.

Ruby’s reputation grew along with the reputation of the National Park, and soon Ruby’s Inn became a large business operation. What started with tent houses and a place to serve meals, paved the way for the modern facilities which today make a stay in the Bryce Canyon area a trip to remember.
