Why Kerry-Lynn Moede chose Grand Canyon

The Historic Yellow House was owned by the same family for 93 years! Before that, it served as the bunkhouse and supervisor's office for the Saginaw & Manistee Lumber Mill.

The rich history of the home and the area were fascinating. After years of watching the beautiful property fall into disrepair, we decided we had to do something. We carefully dis-assembled the entire property and saved everything historic that we could. Re-claimed wood, original floors and amazing stonework still remain. The yard continues to improve and based on historic photos will be restored soon. Artifacts and photos abound in the home. Charm and comfort of a bygone era welcome guests. A perfect 'summer cottage' in a wonderful mountain community.

What makes this house unique

The home is historic but the creature comforts are all fully modern! 800 thread count sheets, quality beds, comfortable chairs and reading nooks, fantastic kitchen, bright clean laundry room, fireplaces, original art, good books, games, tvs, Wi-Fi, grill, patios, gardens, fruit trees, off-street parking and the most convenient location in the middle of everything.

Absolutely Fabulous Experience!!

  • 5 of 5

There isn't a better vacation or get-away place to stay anywhere that beats the "Yellow House". The Yellow House is a wonderful historic experience and the Moede family is accommodating in every way. The home has nearly every conceivable convenience that you can think of. The Yellow House is spacious, homey, and very comfortable. From its location it is an easy walk to the historic downtown of Williams and also to the Grand Canyon railroad station. The Moedes made themselves available anytime we needed them, but were never intrusive. Our stay was a real break from the daily grind. We encourage anyone to take advantage of this unique home away from home.

Simply Amazing place!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults stayed here for the weekend!! We travelled from different areas and I carefully did my research. Everyone raved about the house and I loved it as well. The owner was wonderful to deal with. The house was an amazing piece of history and the location is right behind the grocery store and historic downtown Williams. We made two trips to the Grand Canyon and that was very doable. We want to return. We enjoyed learning the history that was so wonderfully written up with photos. The dining room table was so unique made out of the original barn boards. We absolutely recommend this precious yellow house that the owners worked so hard to restore! Thank you!!

A perfect Christmas in a perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a lovely little home right in the middle of Williams...walking distance to everything. Steps to Safeway, DQ, and a short walk to dining and shopping. The house is beautifully decorated and was even decked for the Christmas holiday. It made our trip to the Polar Express perfect. There are two king beds with 3/4 baths, and a twin and loft upstairs. There is a queen with full en suite downstairs. In the great room is a beautiful dining table made from the home's old barnwood. It has a beautiful kitchen and large laundry room. TVs in all bedrooms and a beautiful fireplace in the great room. I have never seen a more organized or clean rental. The owners are kind and caring. We would go back in a heartbeat!

Cherished Warm Family Memories

Cherished Family Memories

The Yellow House is a very wise choice! This is absolutely fabulous home, and the hostess was amazing. The attention to décor detailing country charm will quickly be noticed, along with modern conveniences throughout. Fireplaces in many rooms, kept us warm during the cool nights. The place is stocked perfectly, with supplies clearly available.

We prepared our Thanksgiving feast, and enjoyed sitting having everyone sit at the dining room table near the fireplace, with beautiful Christmas decorations all around. The following morning, visited the Grand Canyon for the day and returned in the evening to relax with a jigsaw puzzle and game night.

Our family truly appreciated this visit, and grateful for the memories. Thank you!

Texans' Grand Canyon Adventure

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovey time on our Grand Canyon Adventure. The Yellow House and Kerry-Lynn and John graciously made it even more amazing! The house is warm and comfortable and when it is open to the air it gives one the opportunity to let go of stress and breathe in energy! We will be back!

Williams has PLENTY to keep you busy! Walk to the famous Grand Canyon Railway station and take the train to the Grand Canyon. Visit Bearizona's Wildlife Park. Play golf at Elephant Rocks Golf Course. Shop for gifts and art along Historic Route 66. Listen to live music while you dine at one of the many restaurants within walking distance. The immediate area features 7 mountain lakes, hiking trails and scenic drives. Annual festivals include Classic Car Shows, Rodeo Events, Parades, Bar-B-Que Cook-offs and The H.O.G. Rally. Williams is home to the Grand Canyon Brewery and up-and-coming wineries. The beautiful red rocks of Sedona are just South. The ski resort in Flagstaff is 30 miles East. Known as 'the gateway to the Grand Canyon', Williams offers activities, scenery, history and clean mountain air. This is the closest vacation rental to Route 66. Next door to the grocery store and walkable to the train station... We promise you will hear a train! If you're lucky, it will be the historic steam engine. Very cool!
