About the property

5 Bdrm, 4 Bath, 5000 Sq. Ft Log Cabin On 11 Secluded Acres With Amazing Views!!

Please email owners for exact calendar availability. Stunning Custom Handcrafted Montana Built Log Home sitting on a large 11 acre estate lot in private gated community. There is no other place like this in Arizona! Enjoy the views of the San Francisco Peaks and the surrounding mountains from the wrap around deck or from the great room!! This gorgeous custom hand scribed, hand hewn log home is built with 22 inch Spruce. Nothing was spared in this Great Room floor plan home. Granite on all counter tops, custom slate floors, gas cook-top with pot-filler, double ovens, custom cabinets with drawer shelves, large pantry storage, double cross-hatch rough sawn lumber ceilings and accent walls. Magnificent log trusses in Great Room. The Hideout has a main level that is cozy enough for two people or large enough to accommodate a large crew. There is a wrap around deck covering the entire top level with a 5 burner outdoor BBQ and a great place to listen to the elk bugle or watch the sunset against the Sitgreaves Mountains or the San Francisco Peaks in Flagstaff. The main level is a HUGE open Great Room plan with a top of the line kitchen that opens up to the great room, great for entertaining. The master Bedroom is on this level with its own washer and dryer in the master closet. Master has a huge 8x5 walk-in custom travertine shower! There is an adjustable Sleep Number bed in this room with your own private deck as well as a flat screen TV. The walkout basement has an amazing 'Bar' with a huge flat screen on the wall. But the best part of the downstairs is the additional Great Room with a custom copper arc shaped sink that serves as a beer cooler or a regular sink with garbage disposal!! There is also a Fisher & Paykel dishwasher and coffee maker! This is a great place for a second family or kids to come down and lounge in the massive custom couches and enjoy a great movie! The stereo surround system is amazing! There are king beds and 500+thread count sheets in all of the bedrooms except for the 'bonus' room which has bunk beds that accommodates up to 6 kids or young adults. There is a full bed on the bottom and a twin on the top of both of these bunk beds in the bonus room. The 'Red' room has two oversized closets and the 'Black and White' room has a huge walk-in closet. These two rooms share a bathroom and both have king size beds! This level 'walks out ' to the big backyard.

Pete and I live in Scottsdale and are available for questions regarding our home at any time.

PLEASE BE AWARE: A four wheel drive vehicle is required from October 1 to March 1 unless otherwise specified. The roads are great and plowed but there is a steep hill that requires a four wheel drive due to winter weather conditions.

About Karen and Pete Baldwin

My name is Karen and this is my husband Pete. Otherwise known as KB and PB :)

We met in '05 and married the next year (the first time for both of us and the only reason we waited was because Pete's dad got 'drawn for moose'.. and I thought what??) We had a beautiful wedding in January, which is apparently, not during hunting season :) The next spring I wanted to get out of the heat and build my dream cabin and since we live in Carefree/Cave Creek, we knew that driving to Pine or the White Mountains was out of the question due to the 4 hour commute. We landed in Williams which is only 2 hours and 15 minutes door to door and with 7300' elevation, the 30 degree temperature difference was amazing! Pete is an outdoorsman from Montana and I grew up here is Scottsdale although we both were born in Michigan. Pete's family has been building custom log homes for 45 years in Montana and we were so proud to have them build this amazing masterpiece!!

Karen and Pete Baldwin purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Karen and Pete Baldwin chose Williams

The Hideout was exactly what I wanted. It was a cozy place for Pete and myself but also had space/separate living space for both families to accommodate. It is a great place for PB to go hunting and is a quick trip for me to get away from work early on a friday afternoon and escape the 110 degree temps when I leave Scottsdale and land a couple hours later with a 30+ degree temp difference!!!

What makes this cabin unique

Pete and I own a true custom log home. This is apparently very unique here in the desert. Although most folks say they have a 'cabin', I have learned that 'log siding' or pine trees in the yard or anything above 3000 ft elev. do not actually make a cabin. I have been corrected by the utmost authority ... apparently! :)

Live Like a Millionaire

  • 5 of 5

First off, the pictures DO NOT do this place justice. This home sits near the top of the mountain about 10 minutes outside Williams, AZ & has top of the line everything in it. The views from the expansive deck are amazing; you can see for miles & miles. Sitting on the deck at night we saw more stars than I've ever seen at one time. Plenty of wildlife around. Driving in one evening we saw a herd of elk; the second evening, we saw a herd of deer. I wish we'd had more time to enjoy this beautiful place. Don't miss this one.....stay here, you won't be disappointed.

Williams spring break stay

  • 4 of 5

The acmodations were spacious and comfortable for our family. The owners were acmodating for the ages of our grandchildren which was so thoughtful- high chairs and pack and plays. The location was good for our trips to the Grand Canyon. We had a wonderful time. Anita Preston

Beautiful Property with MANY Thoughtful Extras!

  • 5 of 5

Do not hesitate to book this beautiful home! The floor plan is ideal for a larger group. The kitchen is large and very well stocked. The owners provided many thoughtful extras like coffee, paper products, bottled water, etc. The location is ideal! We enjoyed spectacular sunrises overlooking a desert mountain vista from the large picture windows in the great room. The Grand Canyon is an easy drive away(or catch the railroad in Williams). There is a grocery store and numerous restaurants just minutes away. The house is spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. I highly recommend! We will be back:)

Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the Hideout! We could not have hoped for a better place to stay. It is obvious that the owners take pride in their property. We hope to stay again!

The Hideout is just 4 miles south of Williams, so it's easy to get to Starbucks in the am, but yet secluded in a gated subdivision on the top of 11 private acres with views of the San Francisco Peaks and the Sitgreave mountains. You cannot even see the neighbors in this quiet location with 60' Ponderosas that cover the property! Wiliiams is the last town on the old Route 66 and has a well preserved 'cowboy feel' with a shootout on Main street every evening. There are great restaurants and Ice skating and a Christmas tree lighting ceremony and of course, The Polar Express(in the winter). Kids of all ages get to wear their PJ's in town for dinner or hot chocolate before they board the railway to go see Santa!! In the spring/summer check out the zip line or local Farmer's Market . The Hideout is only 40 minutes from the Grand Canyon! It is a great base camp to hit the trails at the Grand Canyon or the many many miles of Forest Preserve that back up to the property.

This is an Outdoorsman's dream come true with fishing just down the road at Dogtown Lake, White Horse, Kaibab or at the Sante Fe Reservoir, but still backs up to the forest, which is the ultimate hunting location ...'Unit 8'!!!
