Historic 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom Home With Open Living Space And Quiet Bedrooms

Location, Location, Location!

Park your car and relax in this spacious, clean and comfortable three-bedroom, two-bathroom home just steps from the famous Grand Canyon Railway station, where trains depart for Grand Canyon National Park and, during the winter holiday season, the North Pole via Polar Express!

Historic downtown Williams, quaint shops, restaurants, bars and entertainment are a quick 10-minute stroll from the front door.

My home is designed for both family and adult getaways. It sleeps a maximum of eight, if you put two people on the comfy sofas.

Full kitchen, cozy gas fireplace, window air conditioning units in bathrooms, separate TV room, distinct sleeping and living areas, backyard patio with a picnic table and new gas grill for al fresco dining. Our home, like most other historic houses in the area, does not have central a/c. We are in the cool, high pines and enjoy natural mountain air conditioning.

Williams is a perfect small-town getaway. Groceries, coffee shops, restaurants and entertainment are all just a short walk away. Summer temperatures are mild, winter days often have both snow and sunshine. Williams is a 'dark sky' town, so the bright stars and galaxies seem close enough to touch!

                                                        Amazingly clean house in perfect location!

                                                        Phil B.

                                                        I’ve stayed in hundreds of rental properties and this was hands down the cleanest I’ve ever seen. Steps away from the polar express train and historic Route 66, the location is perfect. My family’s stay at this house could not have been any better. If you’re planning on staying in Williams and this house is available, book it immediately! You will love it!

We cooked dinner and everything we needed was there. We played Yahtzee from their stack of games. It was even decorated with some Christmas decorations. We had a great time, I highly recommend this home!
