Why April chose Canyon Country & Northeast

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for your kind note and prompt return of our deposit. We really enjoyed your home and neighborhood. We hope to return and stay again! It is great that you maintain such a lovely home and offer it to visitors to beautiful Williams AZ! The kitchen amenities and "staples" (salt, pepper, oil and the like) made our stay even more homey.

Clean, organized and well kept property

  • 5 of 5

We were wanting a relaxing, spacious place to stay as we visited the Grand Canyon area (as opposed to staying at a hotel). This property was the perfect fit! Very clean, and organized. (We thought the interior and exterior looked better than the pictures!) House is close to the town of Williams, where there are plenty of places to eat and shop. Grand Canyon is less than an hour away. House is equipped with everything you need for the week (towels, kitchen, bbq grill & more) & the family room had lots of movies and games. Wish we could have stayed a few extra days. Owner was very helpful with any questions we had.

This was our second stay at Ponderosa Playce, and once again it was simply perfect. Such a warm and comfortable house! I expect the next time we head up to northern AZ, we'll be back!

Beautiful House!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was exceptionally clean! My children were so excited when we pulled up and there was snow covering the entire front yard. The neighborhood is very quiet with lots of space do to being on a golf course. There was plenty of, very comfortable, places to sit. The two couches in the living room recline! The front window has a huge view. The house is literally 6 minutes from the Polar Express and 11 minutes from downtown Route 66. Bearazona is a straight shot and 15 minutes. We went to the grand canyon and it took about 45 minutes to the South Rim.

We would 100% stay in this gorgeous home again. It's extremely well decorated, even with a bunch of Christmas decorations, and very comfortable. It couldn't be located in a better spot and in a quiet neighborhood.

Thanks for sharing your home April!

Area attractions include the Grand Canyon (approximately 40 minutes away by car), or enjoy the historic Grand Canyon Railroad from downtown Williams (2 miles away). For a more secluded yet fantastic canyon viewing and hiking experience, visit Sycamore Canyon, the second largest canyon in Arizona. Sycamore Canyon is approximately 15 miles south south of Williams.

Nearby attractions Flagstaff (30 minute drive), Bearizona! (5 minute drive), Deer Farm and Petting Zoo (20 minute drive) and the beautiful red rocks of Sedona are within a one hour and a half drive.

Historic downtown Williams and Route 66 is located 2 miles from the house with a full service Safeway grocery store. In Williams, enjoy a carriage ride, rent an ATV for the day or watch one of the daily “cowboy shoot outs” on the street. The Rodeo may be in town while you’re visiting, and nearby trail rides are available.

In Flagstaff, experience Lowell Observatory, Riordan Mansion, the Arboretum, Sunset Crater and Heritage Square.

Ski at Elk Ridge (15 minute drive), or try the bigger Snow Bowl ski experience located in Flagstaff.

Enjoy golf for a reasonable fee at Elephant Rocks Golf Course, an 18-hole course with many memorable holes and spectacular views. The original 9-holes were built in the 1930's.

Spend some time fishing at Cataract Lake, Dog Town Lake or Whitehorse Lake, all within a short drive from this home.

Located in the middle of Kaibab National Forest with many hiking, biking and horseback riding trails.
