Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Grand Canyon - Our Little Ranch Retreat

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Our Little Ranch Retreat

We invite you to stay at our warm and welcoming little ranch retreat. Our home has travertine tile and hardwood flooring throughout. Antique items decorate most every room. Our home comfortably sleeps 6 to 8 guests.

We have 3 spacious bedrooms with ample pillows, down comforters and extra blankets for each bed. In addition to the large beds, there are also a full-sized pull out sofa bed and twin-sized rollaway bed.

There are 2 full baths equipped with thick absorbent towels and basic toiletries. The master bath has a large custom built shower and a separate roomy jetted tub. The other bath features a claw foot tub with a one of a kind overhead shower.

In the main room you can sink yourself into the over-sized leather couch, love seat or chair for watching television, socializing or to simply relax at the end of the day’s adventure. The den has a comfortable place to sit and enjoy our small library of horse related reading material. There are many board games and toys to entertain all ages as well.

Our fully stocked kitchen has everything you need. Bring your groceries for preparing simple snacks to cooking gourmet meals. The kitchen and dining area are open to each other making it a perfect place for family and friends to gather.

Our horses, which are located on the property, are an absolute plus. They’re eager to take carrots from you and to make you smile.

We have staggering sunrises and sunsets most everyday. Stars appear in numbers beyond belief in the crisp clear night air as the Grand Canyon area has some of the darkest skies in the world.

It’s always fun to roast marshmallows while sitting around the fire ring located outside and taking in the unobstructed mountain views. Relax under the large 700 square foot patio / awning which is equipped with an outdoor kitchen and barbeque grill.

Our little retreat is peacefully secluded from the hustle and bustle yet it is conveniently located about 30 minutes from the south rim entrance to the Grand Canyon. Enjoy the amazing Grand Canyon at the viewpoints of the rim. Hike a trail, take a river trip or view the wonderment of her beauty by air tour. We are also located about 30 minutes from the historic City of Williams where you can shop its unique stores and visit local attractions such as Bearizona.

Come visit us for your vacation or getaway. A positive guest experience is truly a passion of ours so we know you will certainly enjoy your stay.

Ringing in the New Year

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I stayed at this adorable cabin for the New Year. I was beyond thrilled with it! After a crazy Christmas season, we wanted a cozy little place where we could just be a family and this was the answer to my prayers. The kitchen is adorable and had everything we needed: especially a corkscrew and a coffeemaker. Cooking on the antique stove was fun. There are gorgeous views from the entire house and the fire place is beautiful and warm. My kids LOVED the play room, stocked full of games and toys for all ages. The house was decorated with a great eye and plenty of attention to detail. Plenty of space for our family of five and we loved loved loved the outdoor space. Tons of room for my kids to run around and when it snowed there, to make a snowman and ride sleds. The absolute favorite attraction for all of us was feeding those friendly horses! Max and Bob are so friendly and really went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We can't wait to return!

Beyond Expectations

  • 5 out of 5
I cannot say enough about Our Little Ranch Retreat. My sisters and I were looking for a place to stay during our visit to the Grand Canyon. We chose Our Little Ranch Retreat because it seemed to be kid friendly and it WAS! We are so grateful to Max and Bob for making the house so welcoming to children.

The house was clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated and had every amenity needed for a comfortable stay. The horses were a hit with the kids and we really enjoyed sitting by the fire while taking in the beautiful scenery.

Max and Bob are excellent hosts who really make you feel welcome. We highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the Grand Canyon. We definitely plan on coming back real soon!

Thank you Max and Bob!

Highly recommend

  • 5 out of 5
Stayed for a week in mid December. Everything was great. House was clean, as described, 30 minutes to south rim entrance gate and 30 minutes to Williams for services. Can get some basic milk, bread and other items if necessary at the Chevron just a couple minutes north. Very close to highway so no worries about traveling too far on gravel road in inclement weather yet just far enough from highway to be quiet. It's a 5 acre property so there is plenty of peace and quiet. Cattle graze on the neighboring property. Owner was professional and easy to work with. Someone stops by each day to take care of the horses but I never saw them or even heard them except the first time when Max came by to introduce herself. Great view of San Francisco peaks from the house. Lots of fun decorations in the house with it being too overdone. Really feels like a western vacation getaway but with all the conveniences of a modern house. I had no trouble with ATT cell service for making occasional calls back home, to check weather forecast and to get other quick travel info on the smart phone. Hope to be able to stay here again sometime and would highly recommend to friends.

Comfortable, well equipped, fun place !

  • 5 out of 5
We wanted a place close to the Grand Canyon for my Son-in-law and grand children's first visit. This property suited our needs and was very convenient both to the Grand Canyon and to Williams. It was incredibly well equipped and comfortable. The children enjoyed feeding the horses. I would stay there again and recommend it to friends.

Awesome for an extended family of 8

  • 5 out of 5
Dear Maxine,

Our extended family of 8 enjoyed your home for our visit to the Grand Canyon.
The home was nicely located 30 minutes from the Canyon and 30 minutes from a cute town of William which had all the stores and restaurants.

The home accommodated 6 adults and 2 children (8 and 5) comfortably. The house was equipped with anything and everything we can think of and then some. For example, the kids really wanted pancakes and we were unprepared but you had a nice glass jar of pancake mix with directions labeled! Then the kids asked for syrup, and voila! There it was! This kept happening throughout the stay! We especially enjoyed the fire place with all the wood you provided! It made the place really feel like a home away from home for all of us.

Pros:
Great lay out for 8 people
Had everything and well organized rental
loved the fire place
TV with all the channels
abundance of linens
outdoor grill
stargazing at night was amazing


Cons (not really cons but things we wished we had and others might wants to know but it would not hinder us from renting again!)
no internet (we know you told us on your page but reality without internet for us was a little difficult since most of us are really connected people)
AT&T has no service here (I know it's not your fault) but T-Mobile did.
no dishwasher (it was a lot of dishes)
the sofa kept shedding feathers and we were covered in feathers after a night of enjoying the fire)

Overall, a great, comfortable home filled with care. We loved staying here and we will never forget staying at your ranch.

We would highly recommend anyone visiting the Canyon to stay here with 16 thumbs up from all 8 of us!!!

Owner's Response: We are happy to hear that you and your family have enjoyed your stay at our home away from home. We keep our guests in mind by keeping more than the basic essentials on hand. It is nice to relax by the warmth of the woodstove at the end of the day, with many channels to choose from on a large LED TV.
Sorry there was no Internet service to the home on the property. We like to use the free hotspot service that comes with our phone when using our portable devices. Cellular data service works pretty well with T-Mobile and Verizon. AT&T service is admittedly hit and miss.
The sectional sofa is quite comfortable but lately it has been shedding some feathers. We did not realize that it was shedding that many feathers so we will replace the couch set immediately. An updated photo of the living room will be posted soon. We invite you to take a look at it.
