Why Kerry-Lynn Moede chose Williams
The Historic Yellow House was owned by the same family for 93 years! Before that, it served as the bunkhouse and supervisor's office for the Saginaw & Manistee Lumber Mill. The rich history of the home and the area were fascinating. After years of watching the beautiful property fall into disrepair, we decided we had to do something. We carefully dis-assembled the entire property and saved everything historic that we could. Re-claimed wood, original floors and amazing stonework still remain. The yard continues to improve and based on historic photos will be restored soon. Artifacts and photos abound in the home. Charm and comfort of a bygone era welcome guests. A perfect 'summer cottage' in a wonderful mountain community.

Such a beautiful, historic home.
We enjoyed our stay! Everything you need is at your finger tips. Kerri has truly outdone herself. The town of Williams is quaint and located perfectly to enjoy the Grand Canyon, but the Historic Yellow House is the icing on our cake!
Charming Yellow House
We stayed at the Charming Yellow House for two nights while visiting the Grand Canyon and the sites beyond. What a treat! Beautiful, beautiful home. We had every comfort away from home. The homeowners should feel very proud of all the renovations they have done. Just spectacular!
Thank you SO MUCH for the lovely comments! We are happy you had a great stay. Hurry back!
Beautiful Home Right on Historic Route 66
The house is wonderfully comfortable and in a fun location. Walking to all the Route 66 restaurants and shops is 5-10 minutes. From this location, we were easily able to access the train to the Grand Canyon. The south rim of the canyon is about an hour away and Sedona is also a beautiful hour-long drive away. We had a very nice stay. The house is well stocked with just about everything you need for cooking, laundry, etc and it is very close to Safeway for groceries. We would visit again. Thank you!
Thank you so much for the review! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. I hope you CAN return someday!
This was our second year renting this house. This is such an amazing home! So.much history and beauty! So warm and comfortable! I highly recommend this home to rent while you are in Williams! Can't wait to go back...
Thanks Sherri! So glad you joined us again... you are welcome anytime!
I really appreciate you taking such good care of the house 💕�
Beautiful home inside and out
First of all, thank you Kerry-Lynn for being a gracious host. Secondly, this house was perfect for my 4-adult 4-children vacation. There was enough room for everyone to sleep comfortably. The three bathrooms made it easy for everyone to get ready. The kids loved being able to sit around the living room and tell ghost stories. We forgot our board games but conveniently Kerry-Lynn had some for us. It was so wonderful to go to Polar Express and the Grand Canyon trip and come home to a beautiful warm house. We made dinners and breakfasts in the gorgeous fully equipped kitchen. We had a great time. God-willing we will be returning in the future. Thank you.
I am so glad you had a lovely trip! 💕
Wonderful Wonderful Wonderful!
Our family stayed at the Historic Yellow House over the Christmas holiday this year. Everything was perfect! The home was immaculate and inviting.....oh so cozy! Our family has had a really rough past 9 months. When I walked into the home for the first time...music was playing, Christmas lights were sparkling...it all brought tears to my eyes. It was decorated for Christmas, which was really perfect. There were so many small touches with the decor that made us smile. My boys really loved finding the "Elf on the Shelf" in a few places around the home. The entire house was full of well thought out "extra touches".
Everything we needed was in the house...kitchen well stocked with nice appliances etc... The linens were top notch. Small fireplaces in the rooms. Definitely cozy. And for the history buffs out there...there are books about the history of the area and very interesting antique items in the house to look at. I loved that connection to the past.
We loved the location. Within Williams, you can walk to everything. Safeway (which has a Starbucks) is a block away and other restaurants are close. We drove to the Grand Canyon and back on Christmas Eve (just over and hour) and then to Sedona and back on Christmas Day so we were very pleased with the location. (Side note; the actual drive to Sedona is beautiful and spending time at the Grand Canyon is nothing short of amazing!)
Thank you Kerry-Lynn for the work you do to make this home so wonderful. It is a home full of love and was perfect for us this year.
Ahhh, Jennifer... you're review made me smile. I told the house you could use a little "extra" love. I'm glad she provided 😊�❤
