“Perfect place for a family vacation to the Grand Canyon”

Maxine's Little Ranch Retreat was the ideal spot for our family's trip to the Grand Canyon. It was close enought to be convenient, but very quiet and away from the crowds of tourists. There was plenty of space for our group of six adults and our three-year-old grandchild. The house was extremely well-appointed. The kitchen was fantastic, with every item we could think of, including condiments and a waffle iron, and the table was large enough for the whole family to eat together. It was so easy to keep our grandhild entertained while we were there. We appreciated the sitting room that was well-stocked with toys, and the tricycles he could ride on the porch. He was also over the moon about feeding the carrots thoughtfully provided by Maxine to the horses. Gramma and Grampa loved the spacious master suite with king bed and master bath with the beautiful large shower. We would happily stay there again.

Great retreat after a day in Grand Canyon! So glad we stayed here instead of a hotel. Wonderful home with comfort, charm and amenities like horses to feed! We also enjoyed the dart board and the beds were seriously sooooo comfortable! Loved it!!!

The ranch is fantastically set up for a memorable vacation. The house is spacious and comfortable for our family of four. Our children each got their own bedroom! The house is stocked with all the amenities you need to have nice baths, fires, play time, and meals at the home. The owners were very kind and considerate with helpful directions stashed throughout the house. Feeding the three beautiful horses were a bonus treat. The sunrises, sunsets, and stars are an unmatched experience. If you are going to the Grand Canyon, there is no where better to stay!

“Outstanding experience, the property is as advertised”
Reviewed February 26, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I live in Arizona and have stayed at many hotels and rental homes over the past 60 years while visiting the States' many wonders. My experience, and that of my out-of-state guests, at the "Little Ranch",was nothing short of magnificent. The facilities were perfect for our visit to the Grand Canyon !! If you are looking for a peaceful, clean, well located rental property while visiting the Grand Canyon and Northern Arizona, this is the place for you. From the well equipped home itself, to feeding carrots to the horses who reside on the property, you will have to pinch yourself to make sure you are not dreaming. The rental price is more than fair, and Maxine, the owner, will accommodate any need or answer any questions you may have. The night sky, with absolutely no "light pollution" is breath-taking. My friends raved about the "Little Ranch", and so will you !! Forget hotels near the Canyon entrance. This property is only a 30 minute drive to the Canyon entrance, and well worth the short drive.

We had such a nice time here. There is plenty of room for more than our five. Loved feeding the horses! Loved all of the little things that the owners have in the home for us. Great views, perfect location to get out of the hustle and bustle of the tourism of the Canyon. The toys were great for my 3 year old. Dart board kept my teenagers entertained. Beds were comfortable. There were allot of extras. Way better than staying in a hotel in my opinion!!!!

The stay was just perfect the location of the house is perfect for the Grand Canyon, Sedona and Bearizona. The lay out of the house was beautiful with my wife pointing out several things she wants built into the next house we buy. My kids were happy to find so many toys and the juices that were set out for us. We were even provided snacks to feed to the horses that are onsite. Oh and Max has provided little notes for anything you may have a question about so you wont feel like you cant touch anything.

What a great place! This delightful house doesn't look like much from outside, but inside it was an attractive and charming home. This comfortably fitted our family of 6. Beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was very well supplied. And the views go on for ever!
It is about half way between the Grand Canyon and Williams, so it's about a 30 minute drive for groceries. But come prepared and this doesn't matter, and there are gas stations within a few minutes. And the kids loved feeding carrots to the horses!
No wifi. I didn't mind but the kids struggled a bit!
We would definitely stay here again. Recommended.
