About Kerry-Lynn Moede

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.

Why Kerry-Lynn Moede chose Williams

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

A Home away from home....

  • 5 out of 5
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!

Five Star Memories

  • 5 out of 5
What Can I Say: My uncle and his family owned this property for almost hundred years until the entire family passed and the property went to dissary.
Then guess what happened? An angel appeared and purchased the property and brought it back to all its GLORY and more.
This summer my two sons, their wives, grandson, myself and lady friend had the fortune to stay in this beautiful refurbished hundred plus home.
We had been staying in plush Timeshare in Sedona Az four four days and then stayed in the Grand Yellow House for two and a half days.
Guess what? My memories and dreams of our family vacation are only of our stay at the Grand Yellow House.
What more can I say but that staying in this beautiful vacation home is the ulimate. No Hotel, Timeshare, can surpass the luxury that this home has to offer.
Take time to look at the picturesand discription of the area. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed if you decide to stay.

Amazing place to stay, a comfortable step back in time!!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at the Historic Yellow House in June for two days and wish we would've stayed there our entire vacation! My husband's family were the original owners of the home. So for us it was exciting to see the change from the old photos and family history to the heartfelt care the new owners took in restoring this beautiful home. We were impressed beyond words! The house is pristine and every single detail was thought of, which made our stay even more enjoyable. We enjoyed relaxing in the parlor listening to old time radio and reminiscing with our family. The house is within walking distance to everything in town, but it's hard to leave the beauty, charm, and inviting presence of the home. I can't say enough about what a great job the new owners have done in restoring this beautiful home. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for the heartfelt commitment that was put into this labor of love!! We will be back!!

Even better than the pictures prepared me for.....

  • 5 out of 5
My sister and I visited Williams to look for a vacation/retirement home in the area. I thought staying in a house rather than a hotel would allow for experiencing how actually "living" in the area would feel. There is no way we would be able to purchase a house that has the history and charm that this one has. The house was so comfortable and clean and cozy that it was hard to leave to go do what we were there for. The kitchen was very well stocked. With a quick trip to Safeway we had all that we needed to enjoy the beautiful gourmet kitchen as well. What a treat to drink a cup of coffee while looking out the window at Bill Williams Mountain. The yard is huge and amazing with so much attention to detail - little gardens planted all over and sitting areas to relax in. The town of Williams is cute, lots of little shops to browse in, plenty of restaurants (although we did not try any), and everyone was very friendly - especially the owner of this property who made sure that we had everything we needed during our stay.
This is the ONLY place I will stay when I return to Williams.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Part luxury hotel, part museum, and part charming cottage, the historic yellow house is THE place to stay. I've stayed in Williams several times and in the future this will always be my first choice. The house has all the modern conveniences of high speed wifi, flat screen TVs with satellite throughout the house, and thermostatic fireplaces in many rooms. It has super comfy beds, luxury linens including sheets and towels, and it is positively immaculate. There were two families with teenagers in our party with plenty of space and privacy for all. The kitchen is fully equipped and a Safeway grocery store is literally a two minute walk out the back door. It is a very short walk to historic Route 66 and downtown Williams including the train station for the Grand Canyon Railway. There is also easy access to nearby lakes and hiking trails as well as numerous local attractions.

This is far from an old rustic house slapped with a fresh coat of paint. It has been painstakingly and lovingly restored with attention to every detail. Many fascinating artifacts were discovered when the house was stripped down to the studs for the restoration, and they are tastefully displayed throughout the home. You wont want to overlook the album that shows photos of the restoration and tells the story of the house. Although this is a charming, comfortable and inviting getaway, staying here will also feel like you are a part of history.

We arrived two hours later than planned, but with a quick call to the owners as we arrived in town they greeted us at the house to give us all the details we needed to settle in. Their passion for maintaining the the history and unique charm of this home is evident.

Whether you are looking for a launching pad for your trip to the Grand Canyon by car or train, a peaceful getaway in the cool pines, or planning to enjoy all the history and activities the Williams area has to offer, staying at the historic yellow house will surely be a memorable highlight of your trip.

Fabulous!

  • 5 out of 5
We loved our stay at the Historic Yellow House! The moment we entered we were charmed!
Our large group of two couples, two teenagers, and two children had plenty of room and felt completely pampered by the beautiful yet warm and comfortable décor. So many gorgeous details, with nothing overlooked!
We each enjoyed all the wonderful historic aspects of the home and the unique and talented ways they are integrated. So fun! Loved the big farmhouse table made from the old barn wood, the darling kitchen with carriage door to the patio, original wood floors beautifully restored, and the headboards created from doors! Wow! (There are far more darling details than I can mention, but you will love.) Each room had new things to admire.
The modern conveniences such as Netflix and flat screens in each bedroom and lush modern bathrooms were also greatly appreciated, as were the fun games provided that we spent a hilarious evening playing!
The home was spotless, the beds and linens wonderfully fresh and SO comfortable. The owner, Kerry-Lynn, is very friendly (she was there to greet us and show us around when we arrived), easy to work with, and was close by if anything at all was needed. She is an amazing lady and restored the home herself with obvious hours of love.
The location is ideal with no need for a car while in town. We were able to walk to the market, stroll through the shops, and go to the great restaurants (Some featuring homemade pies and others live open-air music) while leaving the car at home. Venturing a little further, we took a fun hike up Bill Williams mountain, and of course went to see the splendors of the Grand Canyon.
We all agreed that our stay was perfect, we would definitely stay again, and recommend the home to others in search of a very unique and utterly charming place to stay in Williams!
