Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Williams - 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!

Nice house close to Grand Canyon

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there when visiting Grand Canyon. Williams is the closest and a historic town to Grand Canyon (50 minutes). This house is located on a quiet street, close to downtown and freeway. On the day of our arrival, there was a strong thunderstorm coming on our way and we headed right through it. The property owner Lisa texted me the message minutes ahead warning us of the upcoming thunderstorm and told us to be careful when driving, which was very considerate. Thank you, Lisa. The house was very clean and had enough dining supplies for 7 people. The house had only window unit AC for cooling which can be noisy at night, so instead of using AC we just opened the window for cooler air. We also visited the cute historic downtown area where many restaurants and antique shops were found. Had a good shopping experience there. Overall it's a nice house to stay.

Beautiful house, wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this vacation home for 2 nights and we absolutely loved it. In person, the house is more beautiful and more spacious than in the photos, so we were even more delighted. It was clean, well maintained, quiet and cozy and had everything one would need for a comfortable stay. The location of the house is walking distance to the cute little town of Williams and you are only a few blocks away from a grocery store. It's all very convenient. It is also about a 45-60 min drive to the Grand Canyon which worked out perfectly for us as we had rented a car.

The owner of this vacation home was very nice and professional and easy to get in touch with. We would definitely come back in the future, and I've already recommended this place to friends and family.

A lovely, conveniently located home in Williams!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful three night stay here in July 2016. We slept 6 adults and 2 kids easily, and the location was so convenient that no one drove their cars the entire time! Even my 75 year old father enjoyed walking to town for meals and the train. We highly recommend this house to anybody looking for a non-hotel option in Williams.

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for choosing us. You were wonderful guests who treated our home with great care. It was our pleasure to host you and your family. P.S. due to this year's unusually warm weather, we've installed window AC units.

Words can not describe ...

  • 5 of 5

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.
