About Kerry-Lynn Moede

John & Kerry-Lynn bought the Historic Yellow House in 2012 and gutted it to the studs. They were excited to save and restore this fantastic piece of Williams rich history. John is a retired Fire Fighter/ Paramedic, Kerry-Lynn is a professional musician. Kerry-Lynn is a 4th generation Arizona native and has been happy to spearhead the project while John enjoys working as a support member of the Williams Volunteer Fire Department.

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.

We loved the Historic Yellow House in Williams.

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to stay! Kerry-Lynn was so welcoming and always available when or if we needed anything. We traveled from here to Sedona, Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon. We saw so many places the week we stayed here and totally recommend staying in this beautifully restored home and traveling from here to see all of the sites in the area. You will not be disappointed. When you come, make sure you have breakfast at the Pine Country restaurant in Williams. The people there are so friendly and courteous, the food is delicious and the coffee is served in huge mugs. We loved it!! Thank you so much Kerry-Lynn for sharing your home! We loved it!

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Owners prepared the home wonderfully for our trip. They stopped by to explain some things about the home and made us feel welcome. (remember this was built in the 1850s and recently renovated). Home was clean, warm and comfortable. We cooked dinner a few nights and the home had all the cooking items needed. (even made brownies). Stay here the next time you in the area.

Beautiful Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not do this home justice!! The home was very comfortable and inviting. There were 6 of us that enjoyed this awesome place. The owners did a wonderful job with the restoration and preserving the history of the home. Beautifully decorated and had everything you could possibly need. It is walking distance from the grocery store and many other places. Bedrooms are roomy and have very comfortable beds. I cannot wait to stay here again! Thank you so much!

Perfect winter vacation place!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Yellow House was truly perfect for our family of 5 - kids aged 14-22. We used it as a 6 day jumping off point for visiting the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Flagstaff and surrounding amazing Arizona sights. We traveled a long way from Ohio and were not disappointed. We walked in after 11 pm to the gas fireplaces all on, lights and lovely Christmas music playing in the background - perfect! Kerry-Lynn couldn't have possibly been more helpful. When I blew out a pair of hiking boots she called around town to see if anyone carried them, when the cable went out she came right over to get it fixed - she's amazing! My favorite thing about the house was the scrapbooks showing the family who had lived there almost 100 years and the photos of the restoration project so lovingly done. It is so obvious that the owners care so much about the house and community - Williams AZ is lucky to have them!!! I truly hope my family will be able to make it back to Williams and experience again this lovely place!

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.
