There are three generations of our family born in Williams. And our family history at the Grand Canyon dates back to the early 1900's . Our grandfather was a world champion roper and rode in wild west shows and guided hunting trips into the Grand Canyon .
We are avid outdoors people who love to hike, explore, snow ski and raft the Colorado River of the Grand Canyon.
THOMPSONS purchased this house in 2012
We love and enjoy the small town atmosphere and friendly neighborhood. A great place for raising a family .
We enjoy the outdoors around Williams and surrounding areas and we are totally attached to the Grand Canyon.
What makes our home unique:
Location, location, location. Our home is strategically located for any activity or place you want to visit, yet away from the hustle and bustle. Hosting a comfortable, inviting hometown feeling where you can sit on the front porch on a lazy sunday afternoon and enjoy the stunning Arizona sunsets and in the evenings ,gaze into the awesome starry nights.
We loved our stay at this home and in Williams. The home is exactly as pictured - clean, comfortable and lots of charm. The location is a very quiet street in Williams within walking distance of everything in town. The property's caretaker, Ray, lives next door and was so nice. Answered questions for us and gave us some great advice about some hikes and drives that are "off the beaten path" that all the other tourists do. We love staying in places that feel like a home and are not cookie cutter chains, and this fit the bill. We were a family of four and had plenty of room.
We really enjoyed staying at this property. This home was comfortable with all of the room needed for a family of 4, with 2 teenage boys. We recommend this home if you are going to visit the south rim of the Grand Canyon.
We had a wonderful stay and would recommend staying here. The home was clean and well-maintained and we had no problems getting any of our questions answered. We enjoyed restaurants along Route 66, the railway to the Grand Canyon, the wild west show on Main Street, and Bearizona. It was a perfect stay for our group of six.
Perfect place for our family "home base" for visiting the Grand Canyon! Rode the Train on day then drove up and took the Red Route Bus tour. accommodations were perfect for our family of 6. Had breakfast and dinner at the house, with perfectly outfitted kitchen. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We particularity liked the outdoor area with BBQ and nice sitting space to view the stars! Would definitely return if we come this way again!
The house was very comfortable and homey. There was a small issue with the light switch in the bathroom which they housekeeper fixed it as soon as we called them. Other than that, the house was perfect. It was a perfect distance from the Grand Canyon and Bearizona. Everything was as it is listed. Nice fireplace,antique furnishing and so on.
Very friendly owner and housekeeper. We would gladly rent this home again.
