Williams cabin description

This true log cabin provides for a peaceful retreat for family gatherings and solitude. We are located one hour south of the Grand Canyon. Our location is unique for family reunions, honeymoons, anniversaries, birthdays, Grand Canyon adventures, Polar Express and other special occasions.

Location: Situated in the most exclusive, private, residential area in Williams, AZ. This rests atop 7+ acres with no neighbors in sight. Restaurants, boutiques, and Safeway, including Starbucks, are only 2 miles away. At 7,200 feet you will enjoy the cooler weather, fresh air, and relaxation in the company of family and friends.

The Kaibab National Forest surrounds the cabin. Local wildlife includes deer, elk, bobcat, coyote, and brown bear.

The Lodge: A 2,000+ square foot, 3 bedroom cabin is divided into two floors. 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 entrance level includes one bedroom with a queen size bed, closet, 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 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.

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.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: We moved to Arizona over 15 years ago and found a way to beat the desert heat by staying at Wawona Lodge. We found this property upon our Polar Express adventure. We enjoy the outdoors and find that vacationing in Williams allows us spend more time outside.

                  Why the Owner Chose Williams:
                  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.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  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. All other cabins in the community serve as primary residences. Although tucked away in the pines, guests are still within 5 minutes from 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 dirt 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, sit under the bright stars and roast a marshmallow or two. If you listen closely, you'll hear the elk call each other in the summer and fall months.
