Outside relaxation on the deck or the front porch. Fun activities (winter and summer) are nearby, including the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Grand Canyon Railway/Polar Express, Bearizona and the Deer Farm, as well as museums, observatories and outdoor recreation such as fishing, hiking, skiing, sledding and more.

Our names are Darrel & Merrie, we met in Williams & have been married 41 years. We have 2 grown children and 5 grandchildren. Merrie grew up in the area, and has always called it 'home', she loves the mountains, pines and the quiet pace of the location.
Darrel & Merrie Edmonds purchased this house in 2007
We purchased the acre in 2002 and dreamed of the day we would see our cabin there on the property. We drew the plans and sub-contracted the construction beginning in 2005, the home was, for the most part, completed in 2007. We have enjoyed the process, and have been doing some finishing touches since then. We are confident you will enjoy the property, and make many happy memories there.
There is a peacefulness you'll feel when staying at our home, and the proximity to the Grand Canyon, Williams, Bearizona, The Grand Canyon Railway, Flagstaff and Sedona makes our home perfect for daily outings taking in all the sites. We enjoy taking the family to the cabin to enjoy the cool weather in summer. The smell of the pines, relaxing around the fire pit and taking walks in the forest, along with the occasional sightings of the deer, elk and antelope in the area are a welcome change of pace. The Kaibab squirrels that live in the neighborhood enjoy the handouts and are very entertaining. Winters are beautiful with the fresh snow, sledding and holidays in front of the fireplace with the scent of cedar wood, freshly baked cookies, coffee and hot chocolate. Christmas in Williams is a sight to see, with the lighting of the huge Christmas tree, and boarding the Polar Express is a joy for the kiddies, young and old. Bearizona Wildlife Park and The Deer Farm are a must see, near Williams, only a few miles away. (Sorry, we do not host pets in consideration of those with allergies)
What a gorgeous Getaway. I definitely recommend this lovely chalet for your next trip to the Grand Canyon or the Flagstaff area. A cozy home in either winter or summer. We found it to have a lovely well-stocked kitchen...perfect for our family getaway. The living & dining areas are very spacious and our group of 8 was easily accommodated. Thanks for a lovely time....we'll definitely be returning.
This house was amazing and great for our family of four adults from North Carolina. It is beautifully decorated, clean and has great amenities. It is about an hour drive to the Grand Canyon and Sedona but well worth the drive.
This was our first Grand Canyon trip and our first time in Arizona - from Alabama. We wanted to stay in a home rather than hotel since we were traveling with our daughter and son in law. We love the outdoors and natural woods environment. We enjoyed seeing so many different forms of wildlife. We saw antelope, elk and very large jack rabbits!
This vacation home more than met our expectations. I searched extensively to find the perfect place online and our entire family was so pleased. The home was immaculate. Since we were traveling via air we were limited with what we could bring so it was so nice to find the pantry stocked with so many extras! I forgot to purchase coffee filters at the store and Merrie even had filters already there! No need to bring a hair dryer either. There were plenty of linens - extra blankets, pillows and towels.
The home was in a good location for traveling to the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff and Sedona. We also went to Page one day for a rafting trip through Glen Canyon. That was a bit longer drive, but well worth it!! The drive into Williams is only about 15 minutes and there are several shops and restaurants there. We only found one grocery store - Safeway, but they had everything we needed, even a pharmacy and Starbucks!
The owners were great to work with and responded promptly to each email. I would definitely recommend this home and we would absolutely stay here if we are ever in AZ again!
We stayed at the Gateway Cottage for a couple of days this spring and the house is just gorgeous. Beautifully decorated, the house has a real cabin in the woods feel with all modern amenities including a washer/dryer and wifi. The scenic woods surrounding the cottage adds to the sense of peace - the views from every window and patio are lovely. The house was well-stocked with all the required basics. We made day trips to the Grand Canyon which is about a 1 hour drive. Our entire family enjoyed every bit of our stay and very reluctantly left. If we travel to the Grand Canyon again, we hope to stay at this same location!
First off this home is amazing it is tucked away in a beautiful landscape and offered every amenity one could ask for. The house was well kept and furnished. My wife , I and 5 children had a blast it is located far enough out of the way to enjoy the wilderness but close enough to the town and any of it's attractions to make a quick trip to all. We has a fantastic time and could not ask for a better host!
Perfect home for my family! Everyone was comfortable, and the home was perfect for our trips to the National Parks in the area. Peaceful, clean and cozy! My teenager and older parents stayed for Spring Break. Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Petrified Forest, Painted Desert and Bearizona were the highlights of the trip. Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful home!
We had a great time at the Gateway Cottage. It was clean and everything described on the website. I would stay here again.
