Williams is the place where Veronica grew up and after marrying began visiting family in the area more and more often. We would ski, hike the Canyon and surrounding mountains, or just hang out Family. After a few years of camping out in the living room, or renting a motel room, we decided to find a place where we could build memories with our growing family. In 2007 we found the house on 1st street and it was perfect for our needs. In 2008 we opened our home to others as we know first hand how great it is to find a nice place that can serve as an inexpensive home base with all the comforts of home for a family on vacation.
We chose the house on 1st street because it was within walking distance of all the town has to offer and yet is a short drive to the other activities we enjoy. The house is close enough to walk to our friends and families places for coffee and visits, or to go for runs or hikes right out the front door.
