Wilderness Retreat

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Oct 8, 2014
House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Our cabin is not open to rent during the late fall and winter months due to the rural location and the possibility of inclement weather as well as the costs associated with that. Please try again in the spring. Experience country living with all the amenities of home! This rustic cabin is located 4.5 miles south of Williams (4 miles on paved Perkinsville Highway and .5 miles on a well-maintained dirt road) in a very quiet corner of Kaibab National Forest with plenty of Ponderosa Pine trees surrounding the 10 acre parcel. The property is set up for horses, including a large corral and smaller corral for boarding, as well as a round pen. There is a gate with access to national forest located both north and east of the property. People without horses are welcome as well! There is one bedroom downstairs with a California King Sleep Number bed. The upstairs bedroom has a Tempurpedic Queen bed and a full size futon. There is a small loft with a twin bed and there are also two roll-away cots with foam mattresses and egg crate mattress toppers. There are two 3/4 bathrooms in the main house and there is a small bunk house with its own 3/4 bathroom and a full-size bed. The galley-style kitchen has granite countertops and rustic maple cupboards as well as stainless steel appliances. There is a dining area and a large living area featuring vaulted ceilings, tongue-in-groove wood, and many windows with fantastic views of Bill Williams Mountain. The best part of the cabin is the large deck with views of the meadow and the mountain. Many times in the evenings, large herds of elk and deer can be spotted in the meadows. Additionally, Dog Town Lake is located within a mile of the home and there are several others just a short drive away so bring your fishing poles! Horse owners please bring your own feed. Water is provided. Horses must be kept in corrals (no grazing in private meadows). No off-road vehicles allowed. No smoking allowed in the home (outside ashtrays will be provided-please use to avoid causing forest fires).

Please note the cabin is NOT AVAILABLE during the months December-March. We close and winterize the cabin during this time.

This home is amazing - and like other reviewers have said, pictures do not do it justice. My family and I came up during a pretty good snow fall, so we got to admire this beautiful home on secluded landed with the snow fallen blankets all around.
We really liked that this property was set back and off the main roads, therefore it was quiet and we were able to let our kids out and about to play and explore in peace and without the worry of cars coming/going. The view of Bill Williams Mountain is such a beautiful sight from the deck. The separate bunk house off the main house was a nice feature, and the property was very clean. I thought it was cute that the owners provided coloring books/crayons and some board games for the kids. Our toddler carried the teddy bear around all weekend and had a hard time parting with him when we left.

Allowing dogs was also another added bonus and one of the main reasons why I chose this vacation rental over others.
The owners were very easy to work with, fast communication, and very accommodating. AWD and/or 4WD during the snow/winter months is highly recommended. My family has already asked me to rebook this house next year, we can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: We are thrilled to be getting such positive feedback from our renters! This is especially true since we have only been in business for only close to a year now!
Our renters appear to appreciate our rustic and simple cabin mainly because it is located in a quiet, serene setting.

We are happy to provide a home that adds to the enjoyment of our renter's vacation experiences!

What a Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
Our family has had the pleasure of staying at this cabin two times already and both experiences were perfect! The cabin has everything you can possibly need to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable for ALL! The owner has thought of every detail from providing the linens to kitchen utensils, outdoor grill and so much more. There is plenty of room on the property for the kids to go 'exploring' and enough room inside to lounge and enjoy your time together. I could not recommend this vacation rental enough! You won't be disappointed!! We will be back again and again!

The pictures do not do this beautiful property and scenery justice. The home is lovely and well maintained with lots of extras, including advice on fishing holes from the owner! We enjoyed Bearzona, the Deer Park, golfing, fishing and hunting for frogs. The kids had a blast and got a thrill out of the horses in the area.

Everything about this house is perfect. The set up, (so organized it made our stay easy)to the decor in the house, to the view of Bill Williams Mountain, the huge meadow right in front of the house, simply amazing. The house is so spacious. Upscale beds, comfortable. The owners are so nice and the one time we had a question they were so helpful. We were able to have 2 families with parents together. The Wilderness Retreat is highly recommended to any family looking for a most wonderful vacation.

Owner's Response: It makes us so happy to know our cabin is being enjoyed by others! We actually lived in the cabin for 4 years and know what a special place it is and we are so excited to be able to have others experience the cabin and the beautiful setting in which it is located. Nature lovers will definitely appreciate the cabin and the area!

Location

Activity and Interests

Those who bring their horses to ride will not lack things to do and see. There are trails up Bill Williams mountain and plenty of national forest to explore as well as many back country roads. For those who vacation without horses, hiking and fishing in near-by lakes are just some of the outdoor activities available. The city of Williams is located a mere 60 miles from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon which can be accessed by vehicle or by riding a train on the Grand Canyon Railway (depot located in Williams). Bearizona, a drive-through wildlife park featuring bears, wolves, and bison, as well as other critters, is located near Williams as well. For those who enjoy golfing, Elephant Rocks Golf Course is the place to be. It's a beautiful, well-maintained 18-hole course with a historic club house in which to have drinks and snacks. Oak Creek Canyon and the city of Sedona, known for its incredible scenery, are an hour or so away from the town of Williams. If you are a hunter the cabin is located in Arizona Game and Fish Unit #8 and just a short drive from units 7 and 10!
