About John or Maryellen

Our family has a long history in Williams approximately 120 years. This house has occupied many families from Williams and additions from several owners. We have recently remodeled the house and hope that our guests will appreciate the feeling it still holds.

John or Maryellen purchased this cottage in 1998

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Maryellen for providing so many of the necessary items to make everything comfortable. Thank you for having little items in the bathroom, since the stores were closed it sure did come in handy. We REALLY appreciate all the little touches. We will be back to try the train.

Cozy cottage in a snowstorm

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely cottage through the New Year and right in the middle of a huge snowstorm! Fortunately it isn't far at all from downtown Williams; it was an easy walk to Route 66. Maryellen provided us with everything we needed for a comfortable stay, and John checked on us during the snowstorm and even shoveled the walkway for us! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have told all of our friends about it.

Amazing hospitality and exceeded my expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

I thought I was looking for an economical place to stay in Williams AZ, the town where TheTrain departs for the Grand Canyon, and even started getting nervous that it must be small, but was PLEASANTLY surprised!!! The Cottage was delightful, beautifully decorated, and completely exceeded my expectations with the hospitality offered - there were not only some kitchen condiments but also tea, coffee, some breakfast items and even some hygiene products if needed! Was not expecting all those extras to be available! I think it felt even better than being at home as it was truly a relaxing vacation without distractions or stress of being at home.... Treat that it was warm enough to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine :)

"Customer service" was excellent and more like friendly attention with emails, and having the heat and Christmas lights on for arrival. My grown kids enjoyed the movies and dish (or whatever system it was that offered other shows).

The beds were extremely comfortable (must be pillow top or something) and whoever rated the bathroom as small must have been submitting for wrong house as it was very roomy! Also sad that someone gave them a low numerical rating because of VRBO even though they liked the house because again their communication was very timely! It is obvious that the Calleys believe in doing everything with excellence - the place was immaculate and had lots of personal high quality touches!

The location was excellent with access to Grand Canyon and MANY other National Parks/monuments including Indian ruins - best at Wupatki (north or Flagstaff) and Walnut Canyon (just southeast of Flagstaff) and Sunset Crater not bad (connected to Wupatki anyway), and we even found the Kaibab/Keyhole Sink petroglyphs (Indian etchings) thanks to great directions from a lady at the visitor center at 200 W. Railroad in Williams (they are above and on left of pond if you do lovely walk in). Also amazing stop at the Petrified Forest (fossilized redwoods or some huge trees) just off I-40 heading back home (east).

Yes, I would highly recommend this Cottage to friends and wish I could come back again though I don't know that I will get a chance again until maybe when I have grand kids to bring out :)

Cozy and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed here for 2 nights while we visited the Grand Canyon. We all enjoyed staying here very much. It was warm and cozy and just the right amount of room for all of us. We loved downtown Williams and the short drive to the Grand Canyon. It had all the amenities we needed. We would stay here again.

Great cottage; disappointed with VRBO

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was as described; vintage, compact, neat and very clean. Located a short 3 blocks from the historic area of Williams, it was the perfect walk back to the cottage after dinner and adult beverages at Cruisers; a classic Route 66. bar and grill.The laundry facilities were most welcome as we were in the middle of a 2 week road trip vacation. The cottage was great. Not so with VRBO. Before we left on our road trip and during the trip, I sent the owner several emails with our contact information while on the road. VRBO did NOT forward any of the emails to the owner causing miscommunication and confusion on arrival day. We have utilized other vacation rental brokers in the past and never experienced a problem.
