Why April chose Grand Canyon

We were looking for a place to escape the heat in Phoenix. After searching several locations throughout northern Arizona, we selected Williams for it's charm and beauty. Plus, we loved the lush greenery of the golf course area and the nearby lakes and hiking trails. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. You will be welcomed by the locals and greeted in a warm fashion. The town is very safe. Ponderosa Playce is a member of the Williams Chamber of Commerce.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for your kind note and prompt return of our deposit. We really enjoyed your home and neighborhood. We hope to return and stay again! It is great that you maintain such a lovely home and offer it to visitors to beautiful Williams AZ! The kitchen amenities and "staples" (salt, pepper, oil and the like) made our stay even more homey.

Beautiful House!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was exceptionally clean! My children were so excited when we pulled up and there was snow covering the entire front yard. The neighborhood is very quiet with lots of space do to being on a golf course. There was plenty of, very comfortable, places to sit. The two couches in the living room recline! The front window has a huge view. The house is literally 6 minutes from the Polar Express and 11 minutes from downtown Route 66. Bearazona is a straight shot and 15 minutes. We went to the grand canyon and it took about 45 minutes to the South Rim.

We would 100% stay in this gorgeous home again. It's extremely well decorated, even with a bunch of Christmas decorations, and very comfortable. It couldn't be located in a better spot and in a quiet neighborhood.

Thanks for sharing your home April!

Our family winter trip was great!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Ponderosa Playce! It was very close to the Polar Express attraction, lots of cute restaurants and downtown area, gorgeous scenery, and a short drive from the North Pole Experience in Flagstaff! The house was nicely decorated, cozy, and very clean. We will be back to stay here again!!

Nice spacious single family home with well appointed furnishings especially the kitchen.

  • 5 of 5

Location is extremely convenient to Grand Canyons in a quiet subdivision. Washer was not working and manager/owner responded immediately and was over to fix it within a few minutes! Love the place, it is home away from.

Great house in a quiet location!

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as advertised, maybe even better! Fully stocked kitchen is an understatement. We made three meals during our stay and had everything we needed. The house was clean and comfortable with plenty of space. If I find myself back in the Williams/Flagstaff area, I will be re-booking without hesitation.

Area attractions include the Grand Canyon (approximately 40 minutes away by car), or enjoy the historic Grand Canyon Railroad from downtown Williams (2 miles away). For a more secluded yet fantastic canyon viewing and hiking experience, visit Sycamore Canyon, the second largest canyon in Arizona. Sycamore Canyon is approximately 15 miles south south of Williams.

Nearby attractions Flagstaff (30 minute drive), Bearizona! (5 minute drive), Deer Farm and Petting Zoo (20 minute drive) and the beautiful red rocks of Sedona are within a one hour and a half drive.

Historic downtown Williams and Route 66 is located 2 miles from the house with a full service Safeway grocery store. In Williams, enjoy a carriage ride, rent an ATV for the day or watch one of the daily “cowboy shoot outs” on the street. The Rodeo may be in town while you’re visiting, and nearby trail rides are available.

In Flagstaff, experience Lowell Observatory, Riordan Mansion, the Arboretum, Sunset Crater and Heritage Square.

Ski at Elk Ridge (15 minute drive), or try the bigger Snow Bowl ski experience located in Flagstaff.

Enjoy golf for a reasonable fee at Elephant Rocks Golf Course, an 18-hole course with many memorable holes and spectacular views. The original 9-holes were built in the 1930's.

Spend some time fishing at Cataract Lake, Dog Town Lake or Whitehorse Lake, all within a short drive from this home.

Located in the middle of Kaibab National Forest with many hiking, biking and horseback riding trails.
