WILLIAMS, Ariz. - People will have a true western experience when they stay at Trapper's Rendezvous Bed and Breakfast in Williams.

The western-inspired bed and breakfast opened the first week of May and includes six cabins. Ed Trapp, a CPA, and Dawn Trapp, executive director of Camp Civitan, own the bed and breakfast. Rod Baldwin and Sherry Beneda operate it.

The Trapps have been working on the property for about 3 1/2 years.

"I drove by this place forever for seven years going back and forth to Camp Civitan," Dawn Trapp said. "And we'd always say, 'Oh my God, this is so cute.' And once it went into foreclosure and nothing was happening, I told my husband, 'I really want to buy this.' He told me I was kind of crazy. But we did it and started working on it."

When the couple bought the property the cabins were only equipped with toilets and sinks. The Trapps added showers, insulation, ceiling fans, air conditioning and heat.

"I was in the travel business for 20 years," Trapp said. "It just seemed like this had to be opened like this. And the view was beautiful, and it was just sitting here, and so we decided that we wanted to start developing it."

The six cabins surround a pavilion area, which the Trapps say is ideal for parties, weddings, and family reunions. Each cabin has its own theme: Wild Wild West, Americana, Cowpunchers, Squash Blossom, the Antlers, and Cataract Creek. One room is a suite and another includes a kitchen. Each room contains a microwave, refrigerator and complimentary drinks. An onsite coin laundry room is also available to guests. A full cooked-to-order breakfast is served daily in the reception area.

In the future, the Trapps hope to add games like horseshoes to the grounds and develop hiking trails on the 2 1/2 acres of land behind the cabins.

Trapper's Rendezvous is at 1019 N. Airport Road. More information about Trapper's Rendezvous is available at (928) 635-1002 or www.trappersrendezvous.com.
