We booked three nights so we could visit Mesa Verde, what a delightful place. A very welcoming atmosphere & unique type of property. After a long day of traveling & arriving late, we were able to relax & enjoy the property before we headed to Mesa Verde. I would stay here again, a home away from home.

We came to Cortez to see Mesa Verde and stayed two nights at Kelley Place, which is an attraction in itself. Not only for the hike and archeological ruins on the property, but the nice people (staff and visitors alike), clean comfortable rooms, nice breakfast, welcoming sitting room, etc. We had some very interesting conversations with the other guests in...

I've stayed at Kelly Place several times now. I enjoy visiting with the hosts, Jerene & Marc, and have always felt welcomed by them. I love the beautiful surroundings. Part of the appeal to me is the fact that the buildings are older & rustic; it's a very unique place to lodge or camp, with stunning flora, fauna, and geologic... More

I made a reservation here for a group of six friends who were interested in hiking and exploring the Canyon of the Ancients. I started by simply writing to Jerene and explaining our lodging preferences and also asked for hiking suggestions. She arranged for the perfect combination of beds and a kitchen between two units. When we arrived, the arrangements... More

We've stayed at Kelley place three times, and enjoyed every one of them. The hosts are always pleasant and always helpful, the accommodations are great, and the locatoin is special. We usually stay in one of the cabin rooms. They are spacious, clean, and well equipted (wifi access, fridge with small freezer, bar-b-q, microwave, large sofa). The bed is comfortable.... More

My two adult sons. my wife and I stayed at Kelly Place for one night after several days of touring the Southwest. For us is was the perfect respite: quiet, clean, well appointed, comfortable, with an excellent shower(!) and with a soothing gas fireplace. We were sorry that our time was limited and we did not get to go through... More

I wish I could comment on Kelly Place's rooms, their property, etc, but seeing as how I was not on their property for more than 2 minutes before deciding that there was no way in hell I would be staying, my review will have to stay at their hospitality... or lack thereof. Kelly Place being unwelcoming is an understatement. Just... More

Quotes out of context are heavily and unfairly biased. You seem to remember everything so well that you are using quotation marks, but you have conveniently forgotten all the insolent remarks your mother made to deserve this kind of response. Your emotional characterization is also inaccurate and inappropriate. Your group obviously knew you were not going to let anyone in... More

Hands-down the worst customer service I have ever experienced. When we first arrived on the property we were yelled and cussed at (yes really) for arriving before the check-in time and for parking in the wrong spot. We tried to explain that we were not trying to check-in, simply condensing our party to one car so we could go on... More

Please, do the right thing and avoid problems! They said they were arriving at 5 PM. They arrived 6 hours early, but instead of coming to the office, saying hello, and that they wished to park their cars here while they went hiking elsewhere, they parked in labeled spaces for other guests. When one of us approached and asked if... More

We stopped into Kelly Place on a recommendation from a friend. We did not have a reservation, merely wanted to check it out for future visits, either in a cabin or an RV space. We walked into the main building where a woman was cooking. She didn't even acknowledge us. I said hello and she just looked at me. I... More

These people were upset because I told them that hiking on Kelly Place property is reserved for guests only. We have a sign at the entrance to the property informing all that this is private property and that no public access to our beautiful archaeological sites is permitted. I was NEVER rude to them. They arrived unannounced when the office... More

We chose (and would happily recommend) Kelly Place as the perfect antidote to overly touristy Durango. Fantastic to just laze (in the lounge chatting to the other gests), in the garden suntanning, on the deck after dinner enjoying the starry sky and the local wines), or during one of the activities in the vicinity - the Anasazi ruins start on...

Thank you and your family for staying at Kelly Place! We are glad we could include you in the dinners for the group that was here then. As a bed and breakfast, we generally provide only breakfast and snacks, but with prearrangement, groups of 8 or more can have additional meals prepared for them. Bed and breakfast guests, such as...
