About the property

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.

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!!!

Staying at Bethel Cottage was a blessing!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this well-appointed dwelling. It's a lovely setting just a few blocks up from the historic Downtown district in Williams. The location is very convenient, both for doing things in town and for exploring the surrounding region. The home itself is comfortable, nicely remodeled, and well-stocked. Everything was in working order and we had no inconveniences to deal with. And the Owners are friendly and very helpful. We will not hesitate to stay there again when we go back to the area!

Lovely cottage in Williams

  • 5 of 5

My husband, adult daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this charming cottage. Well located between the Grand Canyon and Sedona, it is also within walking distance of the town of Williams. The house was immaculate and well appointed. It felt cozy yet spacious, with a modern kitchen and updated bathroom. The house had very comfortable beds, lots of lighting and three big TVs. Merrie the owner was a pleasure to work with, responding quickly to my questions. For in town restaurants, check out the Red Raven, the Historic Brewing Company, Kicks on Route 66 and the Italian bistro. Just Roughin' It is great for a private Grand Canyon hike while the Hike House in Sedona also offers a tremendous privately guided hiking experience. Don't miss Bearizona in Williams for amazing up close animal experiences and The Chapel of the Holy Cross in Sedona for spectacular views. We enjoyed every minute of our first trip to Arizona and highly recommend the Bethel cottage as the perfect place to stay!

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This little house was the perfect cozy home away from home for our family of 5. Although the square footage is not a big number the house lives really large and doesn't feel small at all. Every detail was covered from the darling decorations, extra pillows, blankets and towels to the fully loaded kitchen complete with popcorn and hot coco. The home was exceptionally clean and the grounds were well kept. The owners were a pleasure to work with and expectations were clear. The location was great! Steps away from downtown Williams and a short hour drive to the grand canyon made for lots of fun adventures! We spent nights enjoying the fire and playing games around the kitchen table. It was a wonderful vacation and this lovely home and quite neighborhood added to the enjoyment! If we decided to visit Williams again in the future we will certainly try to stay here again....i cannot recommend it more highly!

Simply lovely......

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many VRBO rentals and hands down this was our favorite. We loved everything about the home. It was quaint, very clean and accommodating in every sense. We really loved the town of Williams. It reminded us of a small country town in Indiana (which is where we are from). It was refreshing and peaceful to return home from our day trips to The Grand Canyon National Park, Page and Sedona to the town of Williams and your darling home. We highly recommend this home for a small group or family wanting to visit the Grand Canyon and northern Arizona. Thank you so much, Tony and Michele from Southern Indiana
