Williams Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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

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.

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 Baldwin purchased this cabin in 2007

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!!!

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! :)

WONDERFUL GET AWAY TO NORTHERN AZ

  • 5 of 5
Planned a wonderful get-away long weekend for my siblings and family celebrating our niece's completion of chemotherapy treatment. The house was amazing and met all of our expectations after seeing the beautiful pictures on this website. Both owners, Karen and Pete, were very accommodating answering questions quickly by phone and email. They made us feel very welcome in their lovely home. Great location to explore Northern Arizona. Williams was a fun little Western town to see with Flagstaff not too far away too. Took the Grand Canyon Railway trip to visit the canyon for the day which was fun for kids and adults. Williams also offers Bearizona and the Big Toy Playground which my little nephew loved. Seeing all big equipment demonstrations and then climbing into all the equipment made his day. Wish we could have stayed longer....highly recommend!

PERFECT FAMILY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family of 10 adults and 4 children stayed at the Baldwins' Williams secluded mountain cabin over the holidays. The house was perfect for a large group with privacy for the adults and bunks for the kids. It is tucked away in the hills for a quiet and relaxing mountain getaway; yet only a 10-minute drive into Williams for groceries or services. There was just the right amount of snow and sunshine during our stay. It is truly a magical spot that was exactly what we were seeking for a family gathering.

The Baldwins were extra helpful when I called for some guidance with the fireplace when we arrived. And overall they are professional and courteous in their dealings.

We took the Grand Canyon Express and our entire group spent a day at the canyon. We also took a drive into Flagstaff and Sedona, and we also did some nature walks. At night we bundled up to look at the stars. There are plenty of things to do in the area, but mostly you just want to relax and enjoy this beautiful house and special setting.

HEAVEN ON EARTH

  • 5 of 5
Since our children have grown and married we have discarded the idea of gifts for the holidays & have chosen to spend our time & finances on escaping with our kids, their spouses & our glam-babies for quality time together. We have literally been from coast to coast, choosing a different location each year. This year we chose a VRBO vacation rental over the Thanksgiving week which would allow our children to experience the Grand Canyon from the South Rim, as well as ride the "Polar Express" out of Williams.
The new fallen snow glistened as we rounded the mountain & found our way to the Baldwin's slice of heaven. This gorgeous cabin, located in a private residential area allows you to feel as though you are isolated amidst the grandeur of the Coconino Forest yet you are literally 5 minutes from downtown 'Rural America.' Location is everything!
The design of the home allowed for my husband and I to have our own space on the main floor...a beautifully open space with plenty of 'table talk' (2 dining tables) off of the gloriously gourmet kitchen. The HUGE seating area that the master bedroom and kitchen/dining spaces split, provided snuggle time for all 10 adults in one fabulous room whose huge windows frame the surrounding mountains. Breathtaking...
Downstairs, each family had their own room with yet another family room & kitchen amenities (this came in extremely handy when football games were on upstairs & disney was in demand). The home is truly a well-thought out floor plan which I could go on and on about.
But what made this trip so memorable is being able to view the outdoor scenery from inside, then walking right out the doors to explore it all! I will remember forever holding the babies hands and gathering pinecones, building a bad a*s snowman (did I just say that? well, it was!) and sharing quiet moments (some not so much) on the big couch with the big kids at the end of each day.
If you love history like I do, Williams is full of it. This charming section of old Route 66 has a story in every remaining building along its path. The Grand Canyon Railway provided the magical Polar Express experience for us all as well. And the Baldwin's...I cannot say enough about their care & concern for us while enjoying their home. Although I am a writer and had brought my Mac to work, this location does not have wifi - which, in the end, was a gift! So thank you, Karen & Pete, for trusting us with your home & sharing your piece of heaven of with us!

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'!!!
