              Year Purchased: 2008

              Why the Owner Chose Grand Canyon:
              We were looking for a place to escape the heat in Phoenix. After searching several locations throughout northern Arizona, we selected Williams for it's charm and beauty. Plus, we loved the lush greenery of the golf course area and the nearby lakes and hiking trails. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. You will be welcomed by the locals and greeted in a warm fashion. The town is very safe. Ponderosa Playce is a member of the Williams Chamber of Commerce.
