About this listing
We are a TRUE Bed and Breakfast!
The $30 GCNP entrance pass, separate purchase at gate, is good for the whole week so, consider staying more than a night. The park pass is also good for the North Rim too.
Note: The "SkyWalk" it NOT part of the South Rim~which is where we are. Use your favorite search engine for further info on SkyWalk.
Now, that being said, here we go..!
HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY is a European styled B&B and the CLOSEST B&B to the GRAND CANYONS SOUTH RIM! We're only 20 minutes away from the GCNP entrance gates! Stays over $159 include breakfast. (See below for specifics.) We have 20 acres of peace, quiet and serenity with super-easy and DIRECT ACCESS on/off AZ HWY 64 (to Grand Canyon) with free parking right out in front!
A water feature out back draws elk, deer, pronghorn sheep (aka antelope), various raptors, songbirds, hummingbirds, bunnies, coyotes and native wildlife too various to mention. We are a Certified Wildlife Habitat with the National Wildlife Federation.
Also, you can actually see stars and the Milky Way horizon-to-horizon, especially on new moon nights! However, full-moon nights are something to experience too. These are just a few special qualities you'll experience here, oh-so-close, to the Grand Canyon.
NOTE: Rooms accommodate TWO persons ONLY.
Offered is The HUMMINGBIRD ROOM. After a big day at the Grand Canyon, there is a queen super-pillowtop bed for your comfy-cozy visit to dreamy-dreamland. There is a SHARED full-bath w/the Pilot Room. If calendar shows booked, and you'd really like to stay with us, drop me an line/inquiry and I may be able to help.

-Two nights includes our South Rim Breakfast Picnic and our leisurely, sit-down YUMMY-FOR-YOUR-TUMMY southwestern style breakfast.
Or if you're really on the move and don't have time for a leisurely breakfast (served between 8:30a-9a) the Picnic is available both mornings.
-A three nights retreat includes two picnics and a sit-down. Or three picnics if you'd like.
-Four+ nights...let's talk!

We are flexible up here Grand Canyon way. So, please, if you have further questions or special requests send them on over and let's see what can be done. Look forward to talking w/you soon.
Let it be known pets on property. So, if you have allergies bring along proper medication, if needed, or an aversion to pet hair, please do not stay with us.
Cookie-Monster, our large medium-sized lab mix is a work in progress (a rescue w/diminishing trust issues thanks to the kindness of previous guests). She has two cats. LoverBoy and Razzle-Dazzle. LB was born under the house. RD is our latest addition. He loves people, will head-butt you and purr loudly. Don't be surprised if he comes visit you in your room so, keep door shut if you don't want a kitty visit.
Cats may or may not be here as they live in Prescott now and come up to visit often.
Rates are subject to change until you are a confirmed guest.
Guests are welcome in common areas and will get a quick walk-through of "Rainbow" house.
The county restricts kitchen use! However, using the microwave and putting a few things in the fridge are okay with me.

This is my home so will, more often than not, be around to answer any questions and give a point in the right direction, if needed.

Know the area well. For two years, when a teenager, worked in Reservations at the General Offices inside The Park. Graduated from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff (NAU). After graduating, taught at Tuba City Jr High on the Navajo Reservation. In Phoenix, played radio for 15 yrs (Why work for a living when you can play radio?) It turned into a job so, was time for me to go. Returned to the Grand Canyon area and, oh my goodness, have been back for 13 (or is it 14) years.
