Overview

Grand Canyon Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Spacious 2-Story Log Home, 3 BD/2BA + Loft (Sleeps 10)

This true log cabin provides for a peaceful retreat for solitude and family gatherings. We are located one hour south of the Grand Canyon. Our location is ideal for family gatherings, anniversaries, birthdays, outdoor adventures, and other memorable occasions.

Wawona Lodge is located in a gated community in Williams, AZ. It rests atop 7+ private acres. Restaurants, boutiques, and Safeway, including Starbucks, are only 2 miles away. The Grand Canyon South Rim is just over one hour north. At 7,200 feet you will enjoy the cooler weather, fresh air, and relaxation in the company of family and friends.

This two-story cabin boasts 2,000+ sq ft with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The entry level features a great room with a cathedral ceiling and a floor to ceiling river rock gas fireplace. There are two TVs & DVD players, iPod dock/clock, two sofas, 7-seat dining area, full kitchen, laundry room, and garage access. Wawona Lodge is equipped with central air, heat and Wi-Fi. Outside, there is a wrap-around deck with seating and a propane BBQ grill.

Bedrooms: The first floor has one bedroom with a queen size bed and en-suite bathroom with shower/tub. The upper level has two bedrooms and a loft. The extra-large master bedroom has two kings and one full-size bed; including a sitting/reading area. The kids' suite has two sets of bunk beds. Both bedrooms have separate access to the bathroom. The loft includes a full-size sofa sleeper and futon. All bedrooms and bathrooms come equipped with fresh linens and towels.

Attractions: As the Gateway to the Grand Canyon (55mi) and home to the Polar Express, Williams will not disappoint. Take a stroll down Route 66 or hop over to Flagstaff and Sedona to round out your Arizona adventure. And, for those who simply want a refreshing getaway from the big city, Wawona Lodge provides the comfort and ambiance for a perfect retreat. We will be glad to provide more information, upon request, about scenic drives, biking trails, hiking, fishing, hunting, and more.

About Wawona Lodge

What a better way to beat the desert heat by staying at Wawona Lodge! We stumbled across this property several years ago while planning our Polar Express adventure. We enjoy the outdoors and find that vacationing in Williams allows us spend more time outside.

Wawona Lodge purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Wawona Lodge chose Grand Canyon

We enjoy the small city of Williams and it's quaint atmosphere. It accommodates all types of visitors; sightseers, shoppers, or those just needing a time to relax and refresh.

What makes this cabin unique

Wawona Lodge is in the heart of the Kaibab National Forest at 7,200 ft. The cabin was built on 7+ private acres without a neighboring property in sight. Although tucked away in the pines, guests are still within 5 minutes of downtown Williams for groceries, shopping, and local dining.

Snowfall averages at about 66'' per year and fresh air is always abundant.

Brisk morning walks on quiet cinder rock roads or a warm cup of coffee on the wrap-around deck are great ways to start the morning. You might even catch sight of elk and deer at daybreak or dusk. In the evening, the stars light up the northern Arizona sky. If you listen closely, you'll hear the elk call to each other in the summer and fall months.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know firstly that your home is beautiful and perfect for our purpose. Our family has not all been together in 10 years and it was wonderful to have them all there with no distractions. Close to the Grand Canyon. It meant the world to me that we had a home like environment to visit in instead of your average hotel room, so that my children, son's in law, their father and my granddaughter could spend family time together. Thank you so very much.

Beautiful cabin, beautiful property and beautiful scenery

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin. Everything was clean and ready for our stay. We had 7 people with us and were more than accommodated. The deck was our favorite hangout where we could have some drinks, BBQ some meat and enjoy the views. The inside is beautiful as well. The pics don't do it any justice. The owners are wonderful to work with and do everything in their power to make sure your stay is a great one. We will be staying here again in December for the Polar Express. If you're looking for an awesome get away, this should be your choice.

Great Place to Stay for Grand Canyon Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home is really wonderful and the property is ideally situated for a Grand Canyon vacation. The house was clean and the owners are very responsive. Unlike other rentals in which we have stayed, the kitchen is well-equipped with utensils and pans in fairly good shape. Two things to note: 1 ) the beds are on the soft side (at least in main bedroom upstairs - I did not try the bunk beds); and 2) the property will feel like it is isolated, if you are used to living in urban / suburban areas. Those are noted as prefer items and in no way affect negatively in any way on Wawona Lodge - we recommend it and would rent again without hesitation.

outside, nice secluded property, clean inside but poor layout for more than two couples.

  • 1 of 5

this Cabin is set up with a water reservoir system, upon arrival, the customer is required to check the water level in the reserve tank. the tank was critical low level of water, we called and TXT the owner with no immediate response. a response came back that in a couple hours saying we would be fine. Far from the truth. the 1800 gallon reserve tank was down to 80 gallons left, we were a party of 8. the first evening no showers, the next morning there was not a committed time that the water truck would be coming. no showers. water rationing. 3pm the water truck filled the reserve tank.

the Cabin layout is 1 - bedroom and then open sleeping arrangement, mot a good program for more than 2 couples.

I would suggest groups above 4 people do not rent this property.
