High up in the Northern Arizona mountains, this glamping site is at the east end of Williams, surrounded by the world’s largest ponderosa pine forest. The blend of mountain meadows, canyons, streams, and lakes offer a fresh alternative to the hot Arizona deserts below. During the winter months, the property is blanketed in snow. Route 66 runs through the heart of Williams, which mixes the nostalgic Retro feel with the Historic Wild West era, and offers shops, galleries, restaurants, and attractions. Considered the Gateway to the Grand Canyon, this Arizona glamping site is only an hour away from the South Rim and Grand Canyon Village.
