Our Little Ranch Retreat

We invite you to stay at our warm and welcoming little ranch retreat. Our home has travertine tile and hardwood flooring throughout. Antique items decorate most every room. Our home comfortably sleeps 6 to 8 guests.

We have 3 spacious bedrooms with ample pillows, down comforters and extra blankets for each bed. In addition to the large beds, there are also a full-sized pull out sofa bed and twin-sized rollaway bed.

There are 2 full baths equipped with thick absorbent towels and basic toiletries. The master bath has a large custom built shower and a separate roomy jetted tub. The other bath features a claw foot tub with a one of a kind overhead shower.

In the main room you can sink yourself into the over-sized leather couch, love seat or chair for watching television, socializing or to simply relax at the end of the day’s adventure. The den has a comfortable place to sit and enjoy our small library of horse related reading material. There are many board games and toys to entertain all ages as well.

Our fully stocked kitchen has everything you need. Bring your groceries for preparing simple snacks to cooking gourmet meals. The kitchen and dining area are open to each other making it a perfect place for family and friends to gather.

Our horses, which are located on the property, are an absolute plus. They’re eager to take carrots from you and to make you smile.

We have staggering sunrises and sunsets most everyday. Stars appear in numbers beyond belief in the crisp clear night air as the Grand Canyon area has some of the darkest skies in the world.

It’s always fun to roast marshmallows while sitting around the fire ring located outside and taking in the unobstructed mountain views. Relax under the large 700 square foot patio / awning which is equipped with an outdoor kitchen and barbeque grill.

Our little retreat is peacefully secluded from the hustle and bustle yet it is conveniently located about 30 minutes from the south rim entrance to the Grand Canyon. Enjoy the amazing Grand Canyon at the viewpoints of the rim. Hike a trail, take a river trip or view the wonderment of her beauty by air tour. We are also located about 30 minutes from the historic City of Williams where you can shop its unique stores and visit local attractions such as Bearizona.

Come visit us for your vacation or getaway. A positive guest experience is truly a passion of ours so we know you will certainly enjoy your stay.

Ranch Retreat

  • 4 of 5

The location of the ranch was wonderful as it was half way between Williams and the Grand Canyon. Tons to do and see. We spent most of our time there in the Grand Canyon. We also spent quite a bit of time at the ranch relaxing and the living room was very comfortable. It was also very quiet.

We loved the ranch feel. Being able to feel the horses was alot of fun and actually a bonus to the place.

Maxine provided all the we needed and was easy to work with. The kitchen had anything you could think of as far as appliances, dishes, etc.

The only reason that we gave this property a 4 star recommendation is that the outside was not as we expected it to be when we drove up. The inside was as we expected and very nice as mentioned above.

All in all we enjoyed our stay at the ranch.

Absolutely great!

  • 5 of 5

Great little ranch house about 15-20 minutes from the South Rim. Very well furnished and appointed. Nicely decorated and well maintained. The location was very nice -- in the middle of wide open land, the famous starry skies were a delight and unspoiled by city lighting. It was also on the way (barely half a mile of Route 64 enroute to the Grand Canyon). So no detour from our way to the final destination. We had everything we needed for 6 people. There's a sofa bed and a roll away bed for the 7th and 8th person too.

Working with Maxine was easy -- only needed to call her once to get the access code. Otherwise, very professional hosts. Thank you very much for letting us use your property. If we come back that way again, we'll be sure to reach out for another reservation.

"A Memory"

  • 5 of 5

The place was fantastic.serenity, peace and it was if one died and went to heaven..........everything one could ask for was there!!!!!!!!It was a pre-school staff retreat and everyone loved it............the ranch and the tranquility of the place united with the warmth and love generated by the design enabled the staff to truly unwind. The details that Max and Bob put into the environment was could actually just get in their car and go on vacation with nothing but themselves. We went to the Grand Canyon and the location was perfect...................The ranch provided just the right atmosphere for each individual to go within themselves and unite as a more effective TEAM player..............It became very evident after one day that everyone, especially me.was so much at home that we forgot it wasn't our home......I feel blessed that I had the opportunity to not only experience the Grand Canyon but more important was the stay at the ranch. The horses and land really had one in touch with nature and there were no distractions. In just three days we felt like we experienced a month of relaxation....the stress we arrived with just seemed to have melted away with the warmth of the sun. The collection of old with new items was amazing and I loved it. There was food, bedding, big screen TV and so much more. There was even an opportunity to wash/dry clothes so that when you returned home one didn't have the stress of washing clothes. My gratitude and great appreciation for all the work that both Max and Bob put into the place and one can truly feel that they c are about the fact that we enjoy the stay and that we did. It was a privilege and an honor to have this opportunity and I thank you both Max and Bob for a true memory that I will treasure for the remainder of my journey of life. Bravo and may God Shine His grace and blessings upon you both....................My staff works better together and thus we as a team can truly be more effective and make more of a difference for children and their families..........thank you for that....Bob and Max. Blessings.Ms. Jackie (director/owner of Little Dipper Enrichment Center/Pre-School and teachers.....Mr. Elliot/Ms. Kiya and all the children of the school..............we came back from My Little Ranch better people and so much more relaxed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great location, wonderful experience, stayed there from 8/22/17-8/26/17

  • 5 of 5

Best location to be close enough to the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff, Sedona etc but far enough away from the crowds. Max and Bob are like an ever present, but invisible concierge in that everything you can want in a home is there and even things you never thought of. The starry nights, amazing sunsets, horses, views of the mountains, comfy beds, and roasting marshmallows around the fire pit became part of the vacation experience instead of just being a place to sleep. This is our first experience renting a home instead of using a hotel and would highly recommend it to our friends. Thanks!
