Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Grand Canyon - Grand Canyon, Polar Express!

Historic 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom Home With Open Living Space And Quiet Bedrooms

Location, Location, Location!

Park your car and relax in this spacious, clean and comfortable three-bedroom, two-bathroom home just steps from the famous Grand Canyon Railway station, where trains depart for Grand Canyon National Park and, during the winter holiday season, the North Pole via Polar Express!

Historic downtown Williams, quaint shops, restaurants, bars and entertainment are a quick 10-minute stroll from the front door.

My home is designed for both family and adult getaways. It sleeps a maximum of eight, if you put two people on the comfy sofas.

Full kitchen, cozy gas fireplace, separate TV room, distinct sleeping and living areas, backyard patio with a picnic table and new gas grill for al fresco dining. Our home, like most other historic houses in the area, does not have central a/c. We are in the cool, high pines and enjoy natural mountain air conditioning.

Williams is a perfect small-town getaway. Groceries, coffee shops, restaurants and entertainment are all just a short walk away. Summer temperatures are mild, winter days often have both snow and sunshine. Williams is a 'dark sky' town, so the bright stars and galaxies seem close enough to touch!

Great place to stay near Grand Canyon

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to stay in historic Williams, AZ. It's just an hour south of Grand Canyon. Perfect for a family.

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

This property had everything we needed to make our stay unforgettable.

Walking distance to shops and the Grand Canyon Railway.

Grand canyon was less than 1 hour drive and route 66 was within walking distance.

Everything was supplied that we would ever had needed and everything was beautifully presented and maintained.

Travelled with a family of 3 adults and 3 children (15, 11 & 4 months)

Would recommend this property to any families travelling to the Grand Canyon or surrounding areas.

Little far from Grand Canyon but the house was very much worth it.

  • 5 of 5

One of the members that stayed at this place is an architect and he was surprised that the interior of the house. He was really sure the owner studied or hired someone who studied interior designing to furnish the whole place. Apart from Grand Canyon being far from us, we loved everything about the house. Honestly, it wasn't even that far. I was just looking for a bad thing because too positive reviews sound bad. Our Group consisted of 6 adults and 1 child and we had plenty of rooms for all of us. 2 bathroom was a hassle if i had to point something out but it was easy enough to figure things out without too much trouble. As with all vacation, we didn't want to leave on our last day.

Pros:

-Great Interior/ Well Furnished

-Enough Room for 7 people

Cons:

-Little far from Grand Canyon

Perfect home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved the home. It was the perfect size for a family of 8. The home had everything we needed and plenty of it. The location was perfect and everything was walking distance. We attended the Polar Express event and we're thankful we didn't have to worry about parking issues since the train station was just across the street. We've rented multiple homes from vacation rentals and this one is definitely our favorite one. The décor was nice and comfortable. We have two little toddlers that had the best time there. I highly recommend this home to everyone.

Very nice, clean, comfortable, with great location

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean, quiet, comfortable - and had a great location. Clear, easy to follow instructions for everything from getting on the wi-fi to turning on the fire-place. 3 large bedrooms, again, clean and comfortable. A fully equipped kitchen with all the pots, pans, tableware, glasses, etc. you would need to make meals. Easy short walk to the Grand Canyon Train and the restaurants in Williams. Highly Recommend this place.

great stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for only 1 night, but found the house to be clean and the beds to be comfortable. The fixtures in the bathroom, kitchen, etc were in good condition, and the fireplace in the living room was nice as well. We were able to connect to the wi-fi with no issues. The house is in a convenient location to visit the Grand Canyon and is easy to find via GPS.
