Best Family Vacation!!!

  • 5 out of 5
The BEST place to enjoy a vacation in Northern Arizona!!!

The house is gorgeous and cozy, every room and space within the home is luxurious as well; great décor and very clean…it made my family and I feel right at home! The fact that we could just open the front or back door and be in the middle of nature makes this place worth staying; at night we were able to see wildlife and relax as we listen to nature itself by blowing through the pines. This house has everything you need and then some, so all you need to bring is your personal items and energy to enjoy the vacation of your life.

Thank you Janine & Frank for always being there and making our stay an unforgettable experience…you are great to work with and have no reservations in recommending your vacation home.

Everyone – you have to see it to believe it, trust me, you will have a great time staying here! ?

Grand Canyon stay

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at the Tranquility Ranch so we could be with in driving distance of Arizona Snow Bowl and the Grand Canyon. We also enjoyed being a mile or two from Bearizona and the quaint town of Williams. It was ideal location and It was perfect. The house was wonderful and absolutely gorgeous. It had small things provided that I wouldn't have thought to grab (trash bags, dish soaps) and the hostess is perfect. They get the house ready and you never even seen them. They are on hand if you need them but never coming and bothering you. Absolutely wonderful. I recommend it to everyone.

Peaceful location...Great House

  • 5 out of 5
If you need a place to stay near Williams that can accommodates large group you should consider tranquility ranch. We were a group of colleagues (4 from outside the US) and the house was large enough such that we were not awkwardly on top of each other. The pictures actually do not do the house justice. The amenities are great. Very very clean. Outstanding amount of space for everyone. Beautiful location. So quiet and peaceful. Great directions. Clear instructions. We will stay here again and would recommend it to our friends and family.

Perfect Family Get-away

  • 5 out of 5
Tranquility Ranch was the perfect place for a few days of family fun for my extended family including Grandparents, Parents, older children, babies, and our dog. The house is spacious and well laid out with an open and inviting kitchen/dining/living area along with two large bedrooms on the ground floor (perfect for older family members and napping babies). There are two additional bedrooms and a daybed upstairs with a full bath. The bedding was beautiful, lush and soft. There were more than enough pillows and blankets supplied in every room and every mattress was delightfully comfortable. The only issue we had to work our was keeping the upstairs bedrooms cool enough for sleep, easily resolved by turning off the downstairs fireplace an hour before bed and turning down/off the heat for the night.

The kitchen came supplied with all the cooking gadgets, pots, pans, and dishes that we needed to cook elaborate dinners for 8. There is a large fridge and ample pantry space to store food, an ice maker, and a working dish washer. There is tons of counter space to allow even 3 or four adults to get involved with food prep together! A long dining table provided enough space for everyone to sit down and enjoy meals together... and a place for card and board games afterwards.

Williams is just minutes away where we found cute shops and diners and a Safeway that was surprisingly large for such a small town. We also enjoyed a few hours at Bearizona... a great wildlife park where you can see all sorts of mountain wilderness animals up close. The raptor show is not to be missed (hold on to your hats).

The ultimate highlight was that the house is on 7 acres of wooded property. There is a fence running along the property boarder providing a safe place for children and the dog to be free to wander and explore the outdoors. We had just enough snow to make snow angles, have snowball fights, and do some pint-size (2 year old) sledding (down a little mound). The dog had a blast sniffing around the property while the kids played and then laid down for a nap in the sun on the back patio.

Our only issue was that we were not acclimated to the extremely dry air and we all seemed to suffer a bit from dehydration and extreme dry skin. If visiting the property in the winter, I would recommend a humidifier, drinking TONS of water, and heavy moisturizers.

Phenomenal property!

Owner's Response: Christine,
I am so thrilled you and your family had a wonderful time at Tranquility Ranch. You are right, it is so very dry here in the winter months. Thank you for adding the suggestion that future guests bring a humidifier. Great suggestion. We look forward to accommodating you, your family or even friends that you may refer to Tranquility Ranch.

Polar Express Trip

  • 4 out of 5
This was the perfect place for our family's Polar Express trip. The beds were comfortable and the house was roomy. The large kitchen was nice for cooking meals for our large family. We enjoyed playing in the snow. The large windows allowed us to enjoy the snow as it was falling. We hope to return to Tranquility Ranch.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for allowing us the opportunity to cater to your families weekend getaway. I am thrilled you enjoyed the home and we look forward to seeing you again. Maybe this summer when you are trying to escape the heat of southern Arizona, you can come up and take advantage of our cooler weather.

Tranquility Ranch is located in the heart of all the spectacular Northern Arizona attractions: The POLAR EXPRESS, The Grand Canyon Railway and the Grand Canyon are minutes away. Bearizona is located only 1 mile from our home and is one of our families absolute favorite! Sedona, a short one hour drive, has wonderful shopping and dining experiences, one our favorite restaurant being Dahl & Diluca. Williams and Historic RT 66, or the Mother Road, is a favorite and wonderful tourist attraction. Local shops and dining with great parades during Memorial Weekend and July 4th. Flagstaff, where you can ski Arizona Snowbowl in the winter or take a ride up the lift in the summer, is also home to the great NAU.
