Relax in an adobe-style lodge or cabins, nestled between sculpted red-rock canyons and majestic Sleeping Ute Mountain. Fruit trees and gardens, prehistoric Indian ruins in various stages of archaeological excavation, and the amazing natural beauty of this “oasis on the edge of the desert” provide a unique setting for your visit. A self-guided tour of on-site ruins or an archaeologist-guided hike into Canyons of the Ancients National Monument on our northern border will leave you wondering about what it was like here a thousand years ago. Enjoy our relaxed southwestern hospitality on this secluded 40-acre estate.

The breakfast was Great! Everyday there was something different from blue corn pancakes to creative egg dishes. Staple items like homemade granola. The hosts were informative and interesting to talk to. The atmoshpere is peaceful, roomy and relaxing. Cool stuff to see. We'll be back. Mike b

Our room #6 was very warm and we had difficulty cooling it down at night. However, it was very charming and clean. I loved the ambiance of the patio and we ate a delicious breakfast each morning on it. The surrounding landscape was beautiful and very serene particularly in the early morning. Marc was always full of ideas as to what one could visit in the area.

We were looking for a unique place to stay...something that was not a chain, something that was not overpriced. The reviews sounded good, so I booked a room for two days- I wish it had been longer. The room was delightful and the grounds showed off the natural beauty of the place. Mark was very helpful and knew the area well. The dining area, patio and sitting room were perfect. Native American dwellings and classes available in the summer. Look into this wonderful place for an uncommon, delightful experience. Breakfasts and guest snacks were great.

I was on a Road Scholar trip hiking and learning about the archeology of the area. All the staff were wonderful, helpful and very informative.

We spent 4 nights at Kelly Place and it is never enough. Wonderful location in the canyon, adjacent to Canyon of the Ancients. We'll definitely stay there again.
