About Kerry-Lynn Moede

John & Kerry-Lynn bought the Historic Yellow House in 2012 and gutted it to the studs. They were excited to save and restore this fantastic piece of Williams rich history. John is a retired Fire Fighter/ Paramedic, Kerry-Lynn is a professional musician. Kerry-Lynn is a 4th generation Arizona native and has been happy to spearhead the project while John enjoys working as a support member of the Williams Volunteer Fire Department.

Why Kerry-Lynn Moede chose Grand Canyon

The Historic Yellow House was owned by the same family for 93 years! Before that, it served as the bunkhouse and supervisor's office for the Saginaw & Manistee Lumber Mill.

The rich history of the home and the area were fascinating. After years of watching the beautiful property fall into disrepair, we decided we had to do something. We carefully dis-assembled the entire property and saved everything historic that we could. Re-claimed wood, original floors and amazing stonework still remain. The yard continues to improve and based on historic photos will be restored soon. Artifacts and photos abound in the home. Charm and comfort of a bygone era welcome guests. A perfect 'summer cottage' in a wonderful mountain community.

What makes this house unique

The home is historic but the creature comforts are all fully modern! 800 thread count sheets, quality beds, comfortable chairs and reading nooks, fantastic kitchen, bright clean laundry room, fireplaces, original art, good books, games, tvs, Wi-Fi, grill, patios, gardens, fruit trees, off-street parking and the most convenient location in the middle of everything.

Great historic house in a convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

Six of us (and one dog) spent a week here in Williams. This house was perfect - plenty of room for everyone to spread out and comfortable common areas when we were all together. The history of the house is quite interesting. The location is great - Safeway and DQ are right out the back door and there are many restaurants and shops within walking distance. The house is extremely well stocked - the best I've ever seen for a VRBO rental. The owner was very friendly and responded quickly to any questions we had. We would definitely stay here again!

We loved the Historic Yellow House in Williams.

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to stay! Kerry-Lynn was so welcoming and always available when or if we needed anything. We traveled from here to Sedona, Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon. We saw so many places the week we stayed here and totally recommend staying in this beautifully restored home and traveling from here to see all of the sites in the area. You will not be disappointed. When you come, make sure you have breakfast at the Pine Country restaurant in Williams. The people there are so friendly and courteous, the food is delicious and the coffee is served in huge mugs. We loved it!! Thank you so much Kerry-Lynn for sharing your home! We loved it!

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Owners prepared the home wonderfully for our trip. They stopped by to explain some things about the home and made us feel welcome. (remember this was built in the 1850s and recently renovated). Home was clean, warm and comfortable. We cooked dinner a few nights and the home had all the cooking items needed. (even made brownies). Stay here the next time you in the area.
