Property description

NEW/LOWER RATES TO HELP OFFSET THE "SERVICE FEE"!! Welcome to The Gateway Cottage! Our beautiful upscale 1765 sf 'cottage' is situated at above 7000' altitude in a natural setting on a peaceful acre of cool pines in Northern Arizona. We are located just minutes east of Williams, the Gateway to the Grand Canyon, where you will find plenty of shopping for most anything you need. It's an easy 45 minute/60 mile drive to the south rim of the Grand Canyon, and with Flagstaff 25 minutes and Sedona an hour away, this is a great central location!! The tastefully decorated interior includes 2 KING bedrooms and 2 full baths, plus a sleeping loft with a QUEEN bed, as well as a QUEEN sleeper sofa and pack-n-play crib comfortably accommodates up to 9 guests. See the stars through the skylights from the king size bed in the master and the queen bed in the loft. The fully stocked kitchen includes everything you need, bring your groceries and make a simple or gourmet meal. The laundry room includes linens and towels. Outside relaxation on the deck or the front porch. Fun activities (winter and summer) are nearby, including the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Grand Canyon Railway/Polar Express, Bearizona and the Deer Farm, as well as museums, observatories and outdoor recreation such as fishing, hiking, skiing, sledding and more. This home will not disappoint you! Sorry, as a courtesy to guests with allergies, we do not host pets. Check in is 4:00 pm and checkout is 11:00 am.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Our names are Darrel & Merrie, we met in Williams & have been married 43 years. We have 2 grown children and 5 grandchildren. Merrie grew up in the area, and has always called it 'home', she loves the mountains, pines and the quiet pace of the location.

Why the Owner Chose Williams, AZ, USA:
We purchased the land in 2002 and dreamed of the day we would see our cabin there on the property. We drew the plans and sub-contracted the construction beginning in 2005, the home was, for the most part, completed in 2007. We have enjoyed the process, and have been doing some finishing touches since then. We are confident you will enjoy the property, and make many happy memories there.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is a peacefulness you'll feel when staying at our home, and the proximity to the Grand Canyon, Williams, Bearizona, The Grand Canyon Railway, Flagstaff and Sedona makes our home perfect for daily outings taking in all the sites. We enjoy taking the family to the cabin to enjoy the cool weather in summer. The smell of the pines, relaxing around the fire pit and taking walks in the forest, along with the occasional sightings of the deer, elk and antelope in the area are a welcome change of pace. The Kaibab squirrels that live in the neighborhood enjoy the handouts and are very entertaining. Winters are beautiful with the fresh snow, sledding and holidays in front of the fireplace with the scent of cedar wood, freshly baked cookies, coffee and hot chocolate. Christmas in Williams is a sight to see, with the lighting of the huge Christmas tree, and boarding the Polar Express is a joy for the kiddies, young and old. Bearizona Wildlife Park and The Deer Farm are a must see, near Williams, only a few miles away. (Sorry, we do not host pets in consideration of those with allergies)
