John & Kerry-Lynn bought the Historic Yellow House in 2012 and gutted it to the studs. They were excited to save and restore this fantastic piece of Williams rich history. John is a retired Fire Captain, Kerry-Lynn is a professional musician. Kerry-Lynn is a 4th generation Arizona native and has been happy to spearhead the project while John enjoys his second career in Emergency Management.
Kerry-Lynn Moede purchased this house in 2012
The Historic Yellow House was owned by the same family for 93 years! Before that, it served as the bunkhouse and supervisor's office for the Saginaw & Manistee Lumber Mill.
The rich history of the home and the area were fascinating. After years of watching the beautiful property fall into disrepair, we decided we had to do something. We carefully dis-assembled the entire property and saved everything historic that we could. Re-claimed wood, original floors and amazing stonework still remain. The yard continues to improve and based on historic photos will be restored soon. Artifacts and photos abound in the home. Charm and comfort of a bygone era welcome guests. A perfect 'summer cottage' in a wonderful mountain community.
The home is historic but the creature comforts are all fully modern! 800 thread count sheets, quality beds, comfortable chairs and reading nooks, fantastic kitchen, bright clean laundry room, fireplaces, original art, good books, games, tvs, Wi-Fi, grill, patios, gardens, fruit trees, oak trees, fir trees, cedar trees, off-street parking and the most convenient location in the middle of everything.
Staying at the Yellow House in Williams, AZ was a complete joy. My 4 siblings and I were delightfully surprised with the rich history surrounding this beautifully restored home and the attention to historic detail in the renovations. Kerry-Lynn met us at the door when we arrived, briefly gave us a tour, and left us to settle in and explore. We were impressed with the modern kitchen and bathrooms, the artfully decorated rooms, the yummy bowl of fruit, and gorgeous vase of tulips! We couldn`t have felt more welcomed. We were equally enthralled with the informative photo/scrapbook left for visitors to peruse, detailing the extensive work accomplished in bringing the Yellow House up to historic standards.
Not only were our accomodations perfect, but we were within easy walking distance of some very fun eating establishments and interesting local shops. In addition, we were appproximately 60 miles from the Grand Canyon, a relatively short drive.
This may become a family favorite vacation spot for us!
I met Kerry-Lynn while she was hosting a community event in the front yard of the "Yellow House". She was gracious enough to give me and my grandchildren a tour of the home. I couldn't stop thinking and day dreaming about this remarkable home and just knew we needed to have some type of family gathering there. Well, I chose to celebrate my birthday there! Kerry-Lynn met us upon arrival and showed us around. She has restored this home so beautifully and with such attention to each and every detail. It is a magical place and I can't say enough how much we all loved it!
The Yellow Farmhouse was simply magical. We rented during the Christmas holiday season, so the whole decor inside and out was extra special. Where do I start.
Upon arrival Kerry-Lynn was there to greet us and give us a tour of this beautiful home. The Christmas tree was ablaze with tiny white lights as was the mantle. Christmas was definitely in the air. She had even hidden two Elves for my granddaughter. This game continued for the rest of our stay.
Everyone felt comfortable, having their own large bedroom and private bath. We also had our own TVs in each bedroom as well as toasty fireplaces. But the parlor was where all the fun and memories were made. I am still marveling that each evening was spent around the fireplace with NO TV blaring and blinking in the background. There was one nearby, but it was never a thought and that was perfect for grandma.
The location was convenient to everything. We walked to the grocery store and my son-in-law even had his hair cut right across the way.
We took part in many activities including The Polar Express, Bearazona, and the Deer Farm, my granddaughter's favorite.
Good breakfast at the Pine Cone and my daughter and son-in-law enjoyed a dinner at The Red Raven.
I could go on and on, but I will end by saying our trip to Williams was a major success and the Yellow House was a huge part of it. Thank you Kerry-Lynn, your thoughtful attention to detail was amazing and much appreciated.
This is a delightful and charming home-away-from home! We took the family (kids and grandkids) to ride the Polar Express train in Williams, AZ and found this newly-renovated lovely home for rent on VRBO. Clean and well-appointed - roomy and well-stocked - We will definitely return next year! Thanks Kerry-Lynn for everything! You’re the best!
Thanksgiving is our family's annual vacation time. I search far and wide to find "just the right spot" for us to relax, talk to each other and generally unwind from the world. The Yellow House was that and so much more!! We were greeted by Kerry-Lynn, who is a delight!! She made sure that we knew all about her house and all that was happening in the area so that we would not miss out on anything. Once we started exploring the house we were astonished.....it is the most amazing home. All the rooms were large, full of sunshine and with fireplaces. The kitchen, for a cook was just right. I cooked a couple meals there and had everything at my fingertips and in splendid condition. All was very clean and comfortable, we could not have chosen a better place for my 4 year old grandson to stay and go to Polar Express. His memories are embedded as are mine. I truly could not have asked for anything more in a rental property. We will be returning to Williams and WILL stay at the Yellow House. BTW...there is a Starbucks within walking distance, need I say more!!!!
We were so excited to stay in the Yellow House on our trip to Arizona - the experience was beyond our expectations! Kerry-Lynn met us when we arrived to give a tour. There are many pieces in the home that relate to the house's history (furniture, photos, artifacts). My husband is part of the original family that owned the home & we enjoyed sitting in the parlor & reliving the stories. Each room is beautifully decorated with a great selection of fabrics & vintage or repurposed furniture. It was a pleasure to stay in a home that inspired so much creativity. The town was walking distance with some cute shops & live music. Staying in this home was the best part of our trip - Thank you for the invitation, we made such wonderful memories!
