Circa 1897. An 1897 saloon and bordello, this two-story Richardsonian Romanesque brick building listed in the National Register now offers lodging and a bakery in a small-town setting. Twelve-foot ceilings and antique furnishings reflect the old western ambiance while modern amenities ensure comfort and convenience. Overlook the ponderosa pine forest and the Grand Canyon Railway Depot in Best Gal's Room with an adjoining sitting room. Big Bertha's Room boasts a vintage footed bathtub, and a stay in The Madam's Room includes original skylights. Enjoy a fresh-baked continental-plus breakfast before riding on the steam train or touring historic Route 66.

Historic Interest

Built by a German tailor in 1897 as the Grand Canyon's whorehouse and saloon, the Red Garter sits on historic Route 66 across from the Grand Canyon Railway. Richardsonian Romanesque in design, it boasted a two-story outhouse and housed an opium den at the rear of the building. While clients seldom left their names, Governor George W.P. Hunt was an occasional poker player in the saloon downstairs.
