Photos and Description of this Williams holiday house

Bethel Cottage, gorgeous updates and nice views of the city & surrounding area !

You will not find a nicer home in Williams. Just a few blocks from downtown Williams shops, eateries and the Grand Canyon Railway, and 60 miles from the Grand Canyon and Sedona! Our freshly remodeled 2 Bedroom 1 Bathroom home situated on a mountainside, surrounded by huge ponderosa pines and old growth oaks. It feels like you are in a forest, yet everything you need is close by. Built in 1950, but EVERYTHING INSIDE IS NEW, except the beautifully refinished original oak flooring. A bright, peaceful and serene setting for getting away from it all. One bedroom has a king bed, the other has a queen, plus a queen sleeper sofa sleeps a total of 6. Bath has a combination tub and shower, along with a vanity for doing makeup and hair. Flat screen TVs are in every room, a laundry room for your convenience, and a cozy wood burning fireplace for those chilly winter nights. The kitchen has beautiful marble countertops, refrigerator with icemaker, gas stove, a microwave and is well stocked with every appliance necessary to make a simple or gourmet meal. Outside, you'll find the patio has a table & chairs, glider and both propane and charcoal BBQ grills. 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, horseback riding and more. This home will not disappoint you! Sorry, as a courtesy to guests with allergies, we do not host pets.

Check in is at 4:00 pm and check out is 11:00 am.

About Merrie

Our names are Darrel & Merrie, we met in Williams in 1973, and have been married 42 years. We have 2 grown children and 5 grandchildren, all of whom we absolutely adore.

Merrie purchased this house in 2015

Why Merrie chose Grand Canyon

Merrie grew up in the area, and has always called it 'home'. She loves the mountains, pines and oaks, and the quiet pace of the location. She remembers this mountainside community from her childhood, and calls it enchanting. We are confident you will enjoy the property, and make many happy memories there.

What makes this house unique

We found this home in March 2015, and fell in love at first sight. Although it needed a lot of work, we knew we could make it prettier than ever. The views are amazing, both day and night, and the setting is more like being in the country rather than town. We still have a lot of plans for making the property even better, but we want to make it available to you right away. We know you will love it!!!

Great value, clean home in a convenient location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Bethel Cottage. The home was conveniently located for our visit to the Grand Canyon (about 1 hour to the South Rim). The information provided prior to our trip made the stay easy. The home was clean and had many essentials that were a bonus for our experience - condiments in the fridge, coffee and filters, laundry soap and dryer sheets. The wifi worked well and we had at least 5 devices connected. The beds were comfortable and only minor negative was the creaky floor. We would definitely stay there again if we travel back to the area.

The house is conveniently located to the main street in Williams (less than 1/2 mile) where there are many shops and restaurants. There is also a Safeway grocery store nearby. My husband is a chicken fried steak connoisseur and said the Pine Country Restaurant has the very best he has every had. We also ate at the Station 66 Italian Bistro and found that the food was good, but quite pricey. The service was not the best.

Perfect house in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Could not ask for a nicer place to stay: beautifully decorated, well stocked, great kitchen, wonderful beds, and prime location. There is nothing I can think of that would take away a five star rating. Grand Canyon is a relatively short drive as well as other interesting places such as Sedona. And Williams, Arizona is one of the friendlier and fun towns to visit. Highly recommended.

Amazing Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We walked into Bethel Cottage after 2 long days on the road and all 4 of us had a sigh of relief and happiness. This is the place to stay in Williams. It's cozy, comfortable and everything is ready for you. It convenient to William's Main Street, the Grand Canyon and the train depot.

Thank you for opening your home to us and will definitely be back.

Wonderful, clean, cozy home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Bethel Cottage! My husband and I spent 5 days there and enjoyed every bit it. We drove to Sedona one day and did some amazing hiking up Bell Mountain. We took the train to the Grand Canyon one day and hiked for several hours and another day drove up so we could do more hiking and exploring. We watched the sun set at the Desser Tower - doesn't get much better than that!! We spent one day just poking around Williams and doing some shopping. It's a great little town - and a very easy walk from the cottage. I would highly recommend the Red Raven Restaurant in town - we had the best meal of our entire trip there. All in all, we couldn't have asked for a better trip - or better accommodations. I hope we make it back some day to Bethel Cottage!! Thank you!

Beautifully furnished cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we opened the door of the cottage we knew we had made a good decision. Beautifully furnished, super comfy beds and a great location. Everything looks brand new and there are lovely touches that make it really homely. Williams is walkable for restaurants and bars and it's an easy drive to the Grand Canyon and Sedona.

We considered staying nearer to the Grand Canyon but I'm pleased we didn't as there are so many other things to do in the area, Williams puts you in the heart of it all.

I'd recommend this property to anyone who is considering it.
