About the property

Bethel Cottage, gorgeous updates and nice views of the city & surrounding area !

You will not find a nicer home in Williams. Just a few blocks from downtown Williams shops, eateries and the Grand Canyon Railway, and 60 miles from the Grand Canyon and Sedona! Our freshly remodeled 2 Bedroom 1 Bathroom home situated on a mountainside, surrounded by huge ponderosa pines and old growth oaks. It feels like you are in a forest, yet everything you need is close by. Built in 1950, but EVERYTHING INSIDE IS NEW, except the beautifully refinished original oak flooring. A bright, peaceful and serene setting for getting away from it all. One bedroom has a king bed, the other has a queen, plus a queen sleeper sofa sleeps a total of 6. Bath has a combination tub and shower, along with a vanity for doing makeup and hair. Flat screen TVs are in every room, a laundry room for your convenience, and a cozy wood burning fireplace for those chilly winter nights. The kitchen has beautiful marble countertops, refrigerator with icemaker, gas stove, a microwave and is well stocked with every appliance necessary to make a simple or gourmet meal. Outside, you'll find the patio has a table & chairs, a lovely new deck, swings, and glider. We offer your choice of both propane and charcoal BBQ grills. Fun activities (winter and summer) are nearby, including the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Grand Canyon Railway/Polar Express, Bearizona and the Deer Farm, as well as museums, observatories and outdoor recreation such as fishing, hiking, skiing, sledding, horseback riding and more. This home will not disappoint you! Sorry, as a courtesy to guests with allergies, we do not host pets.

About Merrie

Our names are Darrel & Merrie, we met in Williams in 1973, and have been married 42 years. We have 2 grown children and 5 grandchildren, all of whom we absolutely adore.

Merrie purchased this house in 2015

Why Merrie chose Williams

Merrie grew up in the area, and has always called it 'home'. She loves the mountains, pines and oaks, and the quiet pace of the location. She remembers this mountainside community from her childhood, and calls it enchanting. We are confident you will enjoy the property, and make many happy memories there.

What makes this house unique

We found this home in March 2015, and fell in love at first sight. Although it needed a lot of work, we knew we could make it prettier than ever. The views are amazing, both day and night, and the setting is more like being in the country rather than town. We still have a lot of plans for making the property even better, but we want to make it available to you right away. We know you will love it!!!

Warm,charming,quiet,modern,clean,comfortable,quiet,home with everything you need to relax and enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

From the time you pull up to this beautiful little cottage style home, you will feel right at..... home! The 2 bedroom 1 bath with large laundry room feels much larger than it is. With a wood burning fireplace inside and a wood burning stove on the large patio, you will never feel out in the cold. There is also a large propane grill and a smaller charcoal grill, awesome for those of us who like to be and cook outdoors! The decor is so charming and welcoming with thoughtful and personal details which make you feel special. We brought our 6-year-old son and he loved every minute. When he wasn't just hanging out in the comfort of the house or watching one of the 3 large screen HD tv's he loved playing outside on the swings or just exploring the large property with all of the different rocks and trees, his own personal playground! This is right up there as one of the best VRBO homes that i have ever rented. The town of Williams has a lively downtown area with some good restaurants and many, many gift shops with some unique souvenirs. Williams is only 35 minutes from the much larger, modern city of Flagstaff and a couple of hours from the Grand Canyon. We drove to Flagstaff twice during our stay, once to catch a movie at the ultra-modern and super comfortable Harkins theatres (highly recommended) and again to ice skate at the beautiful, modern and massive ice rink. Be sure to check the hours on the website since they close the rink to the public for a few hours each day. So, to sum it up...if you want to stay in a very quiet, comfortable home away from home this is your place!! The owners are to be commended for providing such a great home to stay when you are visiting Williams!

Charming Cottage in Williams

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Merrie's cottage for our first trip to the Polar Express. It was absolutely perfect for our family of four, including two little ones - ages 3 and 1. The place was decorated for the season, a beautiful Christmas tree and even lights strung along the outside of the home. There was a pack and play and a highchair for our use at the home, which helped with packing. The fire was perfect for a chilly night. Very clean, very cozy house. There were fixins for tea and a coffee pot, but I was unable to find grounds, so we picked some up at the local coffee shop. Merrie was very responsive during our stay there. We loved staying here, and if ever in Williams again, would not hesitate to return. Thank you, Merrie!

I’ve stayed in several houses through VRBO and this was probably the best stocked of all! Super clean and worked perfectly for our family. When we arrived there was even a Christmas tree! Waking up to snow the next morning was icing on the cake!! Highly recommend!!
