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 were a perfect fit for our needs. The property is beautifully cared for and perfectly located, surrounded by red rock cliffs and orchards. Unit 11 has a wonderful deck as well as a kitchen and living room. Great for a group of friends.
Jerene suggested the Ute Mountain guided hike and we all agreed it was the highlight of our trip. The full-day hike is the best option and it was fun to ride in the van with the guide. It is also possible to hike on the property and into the Canyon of the Ancients - all worthwhile.
We were all sorry to leave after a four-day stay. Although we brought most of our meals with us, it was great to start the day with their breakfast buffet. Always a nice selection plus a chance to chat with other guests. Jerene made sure that everything was to our liking upon arrival. We did have perfect Spring weather and the wildflowers and cactus were in bloom, making this trip very special.
I definitely will stay again and have already recommended Kelly Place to friends. This is a great place for independent travelers.
