Overview

About the property

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 from the Grand Canyon South Rim. Our location is ideal for family gatherings, anniversaries, birthdays, outdoor adventures, and other memorable occasions.

Wawona Lodge is located in a private community in Williams, AZ. It rests atop 7+ acres. Restaurants, boutiques, and Safeway, including Starbucks, are within 2 miles. Flagstaff is 30 miles east and Sedona one hour southeast. 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 has 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. The cabin 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 several beds; two kings and one full-size bed; including a sitting/reading area. The kids' suite has two sets of bunk beds and serves as a pass through area from the loft to the master. Both bedrooms have doors for privacy and separate access to the bathroom. The loft includes a sofa 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 Kerrey

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 Grand Canyon and Polar Express adventure. We enjoy the outdoors and find that vacationing in Williams allows us spend more time outside.

Kerrey purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Kerrey 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.

Perfect place for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We were a three-generation family of 7 - 2 grandparents, 2 parents, 1 uncle, and 2 kids looking for a place to stay between Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. We found the perfect place! We loved the remote setting of the cabin and all the amenities we offered. The bedroom set up, while a bit odd, worked just fine for us - grandparents downstairs in the master bedroom, 1 kid and uncle in the bunk bed room, and parents and 1 kid in the room with 3 queen beds. The upstairs bathroom was beautiful. The house was clean and well-stocked - we loved being able to make coffee in the morning and eat a quick breakfast with items purchased at the Safeway in town. Speaking of town, we enjoyed the small town of Williams, and loved how close it was to the Grand Canyon (about an hour). The next day, we drove for about an hour-and-a-half to Sedona then headed down to Phoenix to go back home (Pittsburgh).

Had a great time as always.

  • 5 of 5

We rented Wawona Lodge in June for our summer trip and liked it so much that we booked it for our family trip in December for the Polar Express. The kids loved it as much as the adults did. The owners are extremely nice and kept us up to date on weather conditions. This is the only place that we will stay whenever we make the trip to Williams. We will be reserving it again soon. We can't say enough about how nice and clean the cabin is. This place is a definite recommendation.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The location of the cabin was close to town, but we still felt transported to a secluded location where we saw mule deer. The cabin is beautiful, spacious, and overall a great place for family to stay. I will definitely recommend to friends and family and I can't wait to come back again. Kerry was great too-available for any questions we had.

Thank you to the owners for sharing their beautiful cabin. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Exactly the get away we needed!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was gorgeous and so comfortable and close enough to (and just far away enough! ☺️) from everything! The views were spectacular, including a whole family of deer that likes to come and snack on grass each morning right off the porch! We will DEFINITELY be back!
