Luxurious getaway with incredible views and wildlife!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here for the second time and once again were incredibly impressed with the home, setting, wildlife and ambiance! The home is in perfect condition and the owners have gone above and beyond with the details: even decorating the interior and exterior with holiday decorations! We look forward to returning next year!

Luxury is spot on !

  • 5 of 5

This rental exceeded all our expectations and would recommend a stay to family and friends. Location is close to many sites; such as South Rim of Grand Canyon, Walnut Canyon, Sedona and others. Abundant wildlife and stargazing in the evening. Owners were very helpful and at our disposal if needed. Highly recommend this rental and would stay here again.

Great property, great location, too short of a stay

  • 5 of 5

Mike and Stephanie were the warmest VRBO hosts we've encountered. We were all super appreciative when Stephanie told us to "not worry" about this and that..."you're on vacation!". The property is on a beautiful lake where we saw a bald eagle swooping to water and woke up every morning with deer in the backyard. Amazing.

From the property, we had no idea that Williams was the last town on Route 66 to be bypassed by the 40. It's a great small town with food to be found and is preserved to keep the old Route 66 culture alive, neon, classic cars, classic diners.

We spent a day at Grand Canyon, less than an hour away, one day at Sedona, about 1.5 hours, and a day in Flagstaff, 25 minutes away. I wish we had stayed an extra day as Mike had prepared fishing rods for the lake stocked with trout, bass and catfish.

Would highly recommend for family gatherings.

I don’t do reviews but this home is beautiful. The Grand Canyon is nice but this house is better. Sun rise to lake view sunsets. Our family made unforgettable memories. Thank you to Mike and Stephanie for sharing this beautiful home. Jin
