We are a family of seven, with extended family in three states, and we have a very very busy lifestyle. We look forward to getting away and simplifying our lives, even for just a short time on extended weekends. Hiking, searching for old relics or interesting rocks, and taking in the sights recharges us to tackle our routines back home.
Loran and Dana Kraljevski purchased this house in 2006
We bought this property because we fell in love with the wide open spaces of northern Arizona, the wonders of the Grand Canyon and other local surroundings and destinations, and the old-fashioned charm of Williams and route 66.
We built the home to capture the fantastic westward sunset views, and to provide a place for our large family to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily routines, and gather together in a simpler environment.
Although all of the rooms are large, we wanted to make the home feel cozy, so we added custom rustic touches throughout the house. Our favorite features in the living area are the stone fireplace, built-in bookcase, and reclaimed wood accents.
To bring character to the modern kitchen, we added a custom-built stove hood, reclaimed light fixtures, and a 10' long antique oak table reclaimed from an old church that we now use as an island for cooking preparation or just simply to gather around.
We added an old-fashioned reclaimed claw foot tub into the guest bathroom, and decorated with a touch of old country French style.
The master bedroom includes a fireplace accented with reclaimed tile and wood. Wood moldings, wood windows, solid wood doors, and wood floors throughout the house add to the cozy charm that we wanted to achieve.
We rented this property for a small family reunion with the goal of easy access to the Grand Canyon. With 5 adults, we also wanted everyone to have plenty of space to relax and gather. We couldn't have been happier with the place. The house is just as advertised and everyone was very happy with their rooms, the kitchen, the communal spaces, and the porch. Everything was clean and well-stocked. The surrounding area is very rural, very quiet, and just beautiful. The Grand Canyon was an easy 45-minute ride and Williams was about 20 minutes away. We loved coming back and making meals in the kitchen at the end of our daily trips. There was everything we could have wanted to cook with and lots of space to work. The master bedroom is particularly lovely and the game room is a fun bonus.
The owners were very helpful and responsive. We lost hot water the second day of our trip due to reasons out of the control of the homeowners. I only mention the issue because the response of the owner was so professional and effecient, it demonstrated how much he cared about the quality of our experience. The issue was fixed within hours and we were happily continued our stay.
I strongly recommend taking the owners' suggestion and arriving during the day time. We arrived at night and if it weren't for the map on my phone, we would have wandered for hours as the streets aren't consistently marked. But, ultimately, it's worth the adventure of finding the place to sit on that porch and watch the stars!
This property made our trip truly memorable and we would definitely stay there again!
All the amenities anyone could want. Kitchen was well equipped and spacious. Loved having a fire in the evening [both inside and out]. Plenty of room for 3 couples to hang out together and spacious enough to also have some solitude. Setting was lovely. A bit of a wind, while we were there, the end of September otherwise the weather was very cooperative.. Location to The Canyon, Williams and Sedona could not have been better. If visiting Sedona, please try the Red Raven restaurant, service, menu, and food were terrific.
My wife and I and our three kids had a wonderful time in the Williams area, in a large part because of this house. The home is somewhat off the beaten path, and sits up on a ridge just north of the Kaibab National Forest, and as a result offers spectacular views of the surrounding mountains to the south and east, with amazing sunsets over the valley to the west. The home itself offers first class amenities, including a large kitchen as well as a very comfortable leather sectional couch in the living room area and a large wrap around deck overlooking the valley. The house is only about 45 minutes from the Grand Canyon and 20 minutes to the town of Williams. Loran was very accommodating - when we arrived the central air unit wasn't working properly, and within a few hours of our arrival he had someone out to the house to repair it, despite it being later in the evening and the rather long drive from town. Overall the house was spectacular and we would stay here again and plan to if we are in the Williams/Grand Canyon in the future.
As a first time VRBO user we were thrilled. The house was immaculate and far surpassed our expectations. Our time spent there was enjoyable and the whole process was so easy every step of the way. We will always be using VRBO for our vacation needs whenever possible. The Yorks,
We loved the house and the location. It's still a 45 min to an hour drive to grand canyon. The property had everything that we could have needed, from extra towels to a well stocked pantry. The big livingroom and kitchen is perfect for a two families to share. Only issues we had were with the dirt road to the property, the cars were pretty dusty by the time we were done going back and forth on it a few times , and its a little tricky in the night with visibility pretty low. We did see some work starting on the road so hopefully the next time we rent this property , it wouldn't be so bad :). We love watching the sunrise and sunset from the deck , it was better than at the Grand canyon. the kitchen was well stocked, but i think the dishwasher and the microwave needs some repairs, the dishwasher ran for over two hours. The bed were comfortable and there was extra linens. The view for the master bedrooms was breathtaking.
Thank you Loran
I would totally recommend this property!
We had a great stay a little ways of the main road but worth it
We found every thing we needed no issues.
Would defiantly recommend to anyone
The first day we awoke to about 3 inches of snow
It was in the 50s and 60s but the rest of our stay
During the day time it was in the 70s and 80s at night it dropped back into the 40s
Saw elk and rabbits just about every day.
Thanks for sharing your home with us Loran and Dana

This hidden gem is situated on 6 acres in the Northern Arizona High Country near Williams, AZ, off of highway 64 (the road to the Grand Canyon). When you turn off highway 64, you enter onto a country gravel road and for the next 1.5 mile drive to our home, you might see elk, deer, free range horses, javalina, coyotes, jack rabbits, and other wildlife that remind you that you're in the beautiful Arizona high country and are surrounded by nature.
When you approach our home on the hill, you will be able to see for miles across the westward horizon. Then step inside the home to over 2,600 square feet of rustic luxury.
Our home is centrally located to the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff, and Williams. Williams is located about 20 minutes away on the famous route 66 and has a variety of diners, restaurants and shops. Williams is also the home of Bearizona, the Deer Farm, and the Grand Canyon railway station
The Grand Canyon Railway offers the classic steam train to the south rim of the Grand Canyon, the Pumpkin Patch train in October, and Polar Express in the winter. The south rim of the Grand Canyon is only 40 miles north on highway 64. Flagstaff, home of Northern Arizona University, is 25 miles East. Also nearby is Sedona with red rock scenery and hiking trails. And the Snow Bowl ski resort is nearby for winter snow skiing.
If you want to venture further, you can visit the old mining town of Jerome, or the historical town of Prescott. Or, if you would prefer to stay close to home, you can fish and canoe on Kaibob Lake just 15 minutes from the property, hike in the surrounding area, and view sunsets and star-filled nights off the expansive deck.
