About Christian Williams

Tired of life in the Chicago suburbs, in 2004 we moved to the small town of Glendale, Utah near Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon off of Highway 89. We've made Glendale, Utah our home, but also have a love of the mountains with a mountainside retreat near Brian Head Ski Resort as well as living part time in Vienna, Austria.

Christian Williams purchased this house in 2004

Why Christian Williams chose Utah

Southern Utah was always our ideal vacation spot and we planned all of our vacations hiking and backpacking the many national parks in that area. So we decided, why not move to the place where we make our vacation? We purchased this small country side cottage, built by a pioneer 100 years ago, and have extensively remodeled and added on to it in a way that preserves it's countryside charm.

What makes this house unique

We love our home for many reasons. Note least of all is the fact that it is situated in the middle of some of the most beautiful, pristine countryside on the planet.

But as we've lived in the community, we've grown attached to our lovely neighbors, including the elderly single woman who raised 10 children in our home back long before we owned it and it was much smaller and now lives just across the street and has become like a grandmother to our children.

Aside from the history of the area, the location is tucked away off of Hwy 89, isolating us from the noise, but still quickly accessible to for day trips or hiking excursions in the outdoors.

Great vacation home for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with our stay at this home for our vacation! We spent 4 nights here while visiting Zion and Bryce National Parks. The house located about halfway between both parks which is exactly what we wanted. It was big enough for our family of 10 and well equipped with everything we needed to make our meals. We stocked up at a big grocery store on the way to the home and Terry's store about 5 minutes away had the little things we needed to purchase while we were there. There were plenty of beds, linens, and towels for us and enough space for everyone to be very comfortable. There were record temperatures while we were there, but the window air conditioners and ceiling fans kept the house very comfortable, even while we used the oven. We have kids ages 17 years old to 7 years old and it was so nice that there were toys available in the house for the younger kids to play and some games for the older ones. The wifi was also excellent, which really matters with teenagers ;) I would definitely recommend this house as a rental, much cheaper for our family as we always have to rent two hotel rooms, it really was a perfect fit!

Spacious country home

  • 4 of 5

Well Glendale is a small old and quiet village. The house is set back from Highway 89, so was quiet. We had rented a place close to the road around Glendale before and we could hear every truck that went by. It was nice to be in a peaceful house. We really enjoyed the big and open country kitchen with all the supplies we needed.

Glendale is roughly mid point between Zion and Bryce. So is a good location to visit both parks without having to pack up our bags.

The only drawback is that both the bathrooms are downstairs. It was a bit inconvenient for some of us who were sleeping upstairs.

We arrived on a Sunday, and the country market a short distance away was close. This was our fault and we forget that the owner had alerted us of this situation. Fortunately, we did have some food with us.

Great For groups and children

  • 5 of 5

The home was great for a large group. The kitchen is newer and has everything we needed to prepare meals. The kids loved the property and playing on the pirate ship. The upstairs room is also cute for children.

Great get-away in a beautiful Utah valley

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our group of 8. We wanted to be close to the parks but away from the tourism. This cozy spot in a small town made us feel like we were at home. Great kitchen! Beautiful views from the property. Grocery store nearby. Close to Zion, Bryce, and Coral Pink Sand Dunes.

Perfect for a family with small kids

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great vacation in this beautiful little house. There were 4 adults and 4 children from 3 to 8 months. The house was very convenient for our children. They loved all the toys, books and their own fun beds upstairs. The location of the house was perfect for relatively quick trips to Bryce and Zion. There is a conveniently located grocery store in Orderville - it is small but has all the basics you need for cooking with kids. The kitchen was very user friendly and we love that there were so many hooks in the mud room and near the back door; the convenience of hooks is so underrated. The owners were very prompt in their responses and we were able to check in a little early which was very helpful. It rained in the afternoon when we were there so we did not make use of the outside patio table, but it is a very cute area. Finally we did a great hike in nearby Orderville; the views from the house and the immediately surrounding areas are fabulous. Thank you Karen and Christian.

Loved the place - Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Christian was a fantastic coordinator. When I had troubles with my dates, he worked with me and did not seem impatient as I was struggling with the vacation schedule. The place is perfect for families. With 5 kids, the upstairs had a row of 4 twin beds and the 4 oldest slept there and they loved it. If we come back, I will make sure we stay here again. Place is well priced, a little far from Zion and Bryce but the drive is gorgeous - so well worth it.
