Recent Canyon Country & Northeast reviews

  • Great location!

    "This was the perfect size for a couple on a romantic getaway - it was really centrally located and convenient to get to many different Arizona sites (Grand Canyon, Meteor Crater, Sedona, etc)."

  • Golfer's Paradise

    "My sister, brother-in-law, husband and I selected this property for a getaway week. We greatly needed the relaxation and peace. We couldn't have made a better choice. Where in Arizona do you get luscious green grass on one side of the home and Cathedral Rock and Castle Rock on the other side? We enjoyed golfing, the Hilton Spa just down the road and the local activities in Sedona including an awesome Jeep tour. When we were not partaking in the activities, we were grilling on the back lanai and relaxing while taking in the beauty of the scenery. Ignore the comments on the décor. While it may not be the taste one would want for their own home, everything is in very good condition and very clean. Mark and Debi were great hosts and had the home in perfect shape for us. We will rent this home again the next time we are in Sedona."

  • Pageturners book club

    "How wonderful when a vacation home lives up to its description and even exceeds your expectations. My stay at Ponderosa Place was just that. Also extremely relaxing and comfortable. The home is spotless and beautifully furnished with a well-stocked kitchen in terms of staples, appliances, china, cookware and glassware. The many bedrooms and baths are spacious and comfortable. It has the latest in entertainment equipment with a flat-screen TV, DVD player and even a great choice of movies to watch. The backyard and patio are inviting and allow one to enjoy nature in Northern Arizona with cool temperatures and invigorating clean and high altitude air. It’s proximity to many tourist sites makes it convenient for day trips to Bearizona, the Grand Canyon and the Polar Express. Downtown Williams is a charming western town with much history, great restaurants and entertainment. I highly recommend Ponderosa Place and plan to return again. Vy Armour Phoenix, Arizona"

  • A VERY SPECIAL PLACE

    "Our family had a great time at this very centrally located and well maintained home. The patio has a very private feeling with a view of the red rocks. The photos on VRBO were very accurate and the home is very well equipped with a lot of unexpected "extras". Restaurants, grocery, shops and wonderful Sedona are all at your fingertips. Gil and Carole were outstanding to work with. Highly recommend this home."

Canyon Country & Northeast Travel Tips

Getting to Northern Arizona Vacation Rentals

Northern Arizona is famous for the Grand Canyon and it attracts many tourists throughout the year. For visitors from other parts of the world, your main access points are either Phoenix, Arizona or Las Vegas, Nevada. As the crow flies, Las Vegas is closer but the vast canyon lands make access limited so Phoenix is actually the closest major airport when you travel by car. It is located approximately 230 miles south from the Grand Canyon. Phoenix hosts most major airlines from North America and also has good flight connections to other destinations in Europe, South and Central America. Las Vegas International Airport has regular direct flights from the major eastern cities and Europe. If you don't want to drive the 200 or more miles to Northern Arizona then you can get a domestic flight to Flagstaff which has a regional airport. Flagstaff has regularly scheduled flights from Phoenix, Las Vegas and other cities, such as Denver or Salt Lake City. Your best option once in Northern Arizona is to hire a car. There are bus and rail services but they do not operate on a daily basis so you will need to plan carefully if you want to travel this way.

Year-Round Vacations at Northern Arizona Cabins

Arizona is known for its year-round warm climate. The summer months which run from May to October can get blisteringly hot. You need to protect yourself from the sun if you plan to spend any time outdoors. Sunhats, sunglasses, sunscreen and long sleeves are essential, and closed boots are recommended as the terrain is gravelly. In the winter months, it can still get very warm during the day and temperatures drop to below freezing at night. Snow does occur occasionally, especially at higher altitudes. Your best bet is to wear layers so you can peel off or add on as the weather changes. Because of these extremes, most people say that their favorite time of year to visit is during the spring and fall months. The temperatures are somewhat milder but still warm enough to explore and enjoy the many magnificent sights.

Major Attractions and Activities at Northern Arizona Lodging

Most people travel to Northern Arizona to see the impressive natural landmark known as the Grand Canyon. The canyon stretches for a distance of 277 miles along the Colorado River. In places, the canyon is 18 miles wide and more than a mile deep. Scenically, it is one of the most dramatic and impressive landscapes that you can ever wish to see. Sections of the canyon are protected national parkland. There are several viewing sites and lookout points on the canyon's rim. If you want to get a close up perspective of the canyon, one of the best ways is to take a whitewater rafting trip down the Colorado River. Local outfitters offer guided day trips as well as multi-day trips. There are various launch sites depending on which type of trip you opt for. Another way to explore the canyon is by following one of the many hiking trails. If you are inexperienced, it is best to take a guided trip with one of the park rangers or local outfitters.

Visitors to Arizona Vacation Rentals
