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, window air conditioning units in bathrooms, 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!

Very satisfied with the accomodations.

  • 4 of 5

Great being so close to "main street" that you can walk.

Everything you would require is there and in great condition.

Would have preferred a second TV available as the weather was cold and rainy.

Perfect In Every Way

  • 5 of 5

First of all - - -the photos do not do this rental justice. My husband, grandchildren, son and daughter-in-law found this cute house to be very clean, charming, and perfect in every way. We were close to the railroad station (across the street) and a couple of blocks (easy walking distance) from downtown and Route 66 restaurants and shops. Since Williams was experiencing a heat wave, Lisa made sure that we knew that there were plenty (!) of fans to keep us cool until the night breezes started. If you're going to Williams, stay here; I know we'll be coming back in the near future.

Words can not describe ...

We loved staying in Lisa's historic home. Everything advertised was as is, if not better. My son wanted to move in. He's thirty one. We loved having the space to spread out. We loved the way it was decorated. I have loved communicating with Lisa. On this family trip, we have stayed in two airbnbs and two home away properties. This is by far the BEST of the four. Everything in it was of high quality, designed to delight, welcome and pamper! Extra amenities included stools and luggage carriers galore. There was even a spare cane that my mom made use of. One night we were able to play games that Lisa provides. It will be one of our most fun memories from this trip. I wish Lisa would provide properties everywhere we travel ;) ...

Couple more notes: Free internet use at the library, if you need it. Great town to walk around in and shop. Safeway nearby, too. We ate two great meals at the pie place for breakfast and the Historic Brewing Company for dinner. I also bought pieces of pottery at the Artist Gallery. Williams is a great little town. I'm glad we stayed there.

Brilliant Property in a Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property and was perfect for a family, plenty of space and ideally located to Williams Town Centre. Williams is more than just the Grand Canyon Railway, a really vibrant town and plenty of fun. We would stay at this property and Williams again in a heartbeat. Happy Times. Thank you Lisa for making our stay so seamless. Tops!

Better Than Home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was well appointed with many amenities we did not expect. The location was within easy walking distance of the town which boasted darling shops and

great restuarants, especially Pine Country. The house had three bedrooms and two baths, a den with a couch for sleeping as well. The washer and dryer was handy after

four days on the road. The kitchen was completely outfitted for cooking, including a microwave and dishwasher. The house was in pristine condition and beautifully decorated. The trip from Williams to Grand Canyon took only an hour.
