Why April chose Grand Canyon Village

We were looking for a place to escape the heat in Phoenix. After searching several locations throughout northern Arizona, we selected Williams for it's charm and beauty. Plus, we loved the lush greenery of the golf course area and the nearby lakes and hiking trails. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. You will be welcomed by the locals and greeted in a warm fashion. The town is very safe. Ponderosa Playce is a member of the Williams Chamber of Commerce.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for the use of your home. It exceeded our expectations and all the added touches, stocked pantry items, etc. made it extra special. This place is fantastic and I would highly recommend. We had an enjoyable, relaxing trip. Not ready to return to Michigan!

Wonderful Home

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at this home to see the Grand Canyon. Their were 3 couples and we found the home has everything one could need. The home is clean and well kept. 3 Bedrooms and 2 baths. Lots of space for adults to visit. Located just on the edge of town with a 10 min drive to route 66 downtown Williams. Good HI way access and about an hours drive to the Grand Canyon. We enjoyed our stay here. The owner is a pleasure to deal with.

How wonderful when a vacation home lives up to its description and even exceeds your expectations. My stay at Ponderosa Place was just that. Also extremely relaxing and comfortable.

The home is spotless and beautifully furnished with a well-stocked kitchen in terms of staples, appliances, china, cookware and glassware. The many bedrooms and baths are spacious and comfortable. It has the latest in entertainment equipment with a flat-screen TV, DVD player and even a great choice of movies to watch.

The backyard and patio are inviting and allow one to enjoy nature in Northern Arizona with cool temperatures and invigorating clean and high altitude air.

It’s proximity to many tourist sites makes it convenient for day trips to Bearizona, the Grand Canyon and the Polar Express. Downtown Williams is a charming western town with much history, great restaurants and entertainment.

I highly recommend Ponderosa Place and plan to return again.

What a lovely experience! This rental not only met but surpassed my expectations. Beautifully decorated, maintained, clean, spacious and convenient to many varied amenities. Easy drive to the Grand Canyon. Williams is a quaint town in the mountains. Golf course is challenging yet very fun to play. The owners provided all information requested and made excellent suggestions regarding places to see and eat. Loved the Wine Garage! I would definitely rent from these owners again. Their attention to detail and concern for the care of their guests made me feel like it was my home away from home. Easily 5 stars!

We greatly enjoyed our stay at April's place. Spotless clean plus it has everything you need when you are home away from home - we especially liked the fully equipped kitchen! This is a great base for exploring Northern Arizona. We had a visitor out of the country and we're able to see both Grand Canyon and Sedona. Highly recommended - we felt like we stayed at a friend's house vs. "just another rental". Very inviting and nicely decorated. Enjoy!

Area attractions include the Grand Canyon (approximately 40 minutes away by car), or enjoy the historic Grand Canyon Railroad from downtown Williams (2 miles away). For a more secluded yet fantastic canyon viewing and hiking experience, visit Sycamore Canyon, the second largest canyon in Arizona. Sycamore Canyon is approximately 15 miles south south of Williams.

Nearby attractions Flagstaff (30 minute drive), Bearizona! (5 minute drive), Deer Farm and Petting Zoo (20 minute drive) and the beautiful red rocks of Sedona are within a one hour and a half drive.

Historic downtown Williams and Route 66 is located 2 miles from the house with a full service Safeway grocery store. In Williams, enjoy a carriage ride, rent an ATV for the day or watch one of the daily “cowboy shoot outs” on the street. The Rodeo may be in town while you’re visiting, and nearby trail rides are available. Go to www.experiencewilliams.com for detailed information.

In Flagstaff, experience Lowell Observatory, Riordan Mansion, the Arboretum, Sunset Crater and Heritage Square.

Ski at Elk Ridge (15 minute drive), or try the bigger Snow Bowl ski experience located in Flagstaff.

Enjoy golf for a reasonable fee at Elephant Rocks Golf Course, an 18-hole course with many memorable holes and spectacular views. The original 9-holes were built in the 1930's. Visit www.elephant-rocks.com for information.

Spend some time fishing at Cataract Lake, Dog Town Lake or Whitehorse Lake, all within a short drive from this home.

Located in the middle of Kaibab National Forest with many hiking, biking and horseback riding trails.
