I'm not sure that it's sensible to review somewhere like Kelly Place after a one-night stop, but it deserves a good word and potential guests ought to know how best to use it. It's about ten miles west of Cortez, not far from the Utah border, and stands alone; you can't see any other properties from the door. The location...

I'm sorry I only could stay two nights! The location is perfect, tucked into the edge of the Canyon of the Ancients. My sister and I stayed in the two-room suite and spent our evenings out on the porch, enjoying the view and fabulous sunsets. A perfect location for day trips to Hovenweep and Mesa Verdee but I would have...

This Inn is located some 15 miles west of Cortez (CO). It is a superb location if you wish to investigate the natural wonders of this area or its Anasazi history and want to do some hiking. The Inn is located next to the Canyon of the Ancients and you can start your hike just outside the cabins. We stayed...

What a wonderful base camp to explore the 4 Corners area of the Southwest! Attentive, friendly staff, awesome breakfast, spotless rooms but best of all you can walk out of your room to see ancient ruins right on the property. An excellent place for those wheelchair bound or who have difficulty walking. Can't say enough great things about Kelly Place.

My daughter spent a week at Crow Canyon Archaeology Center near Cortez, so I opted to make a vacation out of the trip from Denver to retrieve her. Kelly Place -- with artifacts and kivas on the property -- was the perfect spot. We day tripped to Hovenweep, Mesa Verde, Canyon of the Ancients (on an archaeologist-led hike that started...

My wife and I wanted a place to enjoy some peace and quiet, be able to exercise daily, and be close to the Four Corners exploring we wanted to do. We looked into Durango, but at $225 per night, was too steep for us. We began searching within 60 miles of Durango, and found Kelly Place Bed and Breakfast. The...

A beautiful, magical spot with easy access to the wonderful trails of Canyons of the Ancients, as well as Mesa Verde. Our room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the breakfasts were decent, the management was friendly and responsive to our needs, the guests were enjoyable to converse with, and there were lots of spots to sit in the shade...

If you're looking for a retreat like experience this is the place to go. But know that you're on your own. You won't be pampered w room service or conveniently located restaurants. Pack a cooler, turn off your cell phone and kick back and relax.

Kelly Place was recommended by a friend, and I was pleasantly surprised how it exceeded my expectations. We went just for the weekend, but I will definitely return - hopefully on a regular basis. It sits in a beautiful valley filled with fruit orchards and surrounded by mountains to the south, and desert cliffs and canyons to the north. The...

We stayed two nights last June in the Deluxe Cabin which had a queen bed for us and a daybed for our 10 year old son. The evaporative cooler was terrific in the heat! We also liked the kitchenette for storing our beverages and snacks. The bathroom was so roomy, too (double sink?). The whole cabin had a nice southwestern...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled between majestic Sleeping Ute Mountain and the sculpted red rocks of McElmo Canyon, Kelly Place B&B has been attracting visitors since 1980. Explore prehistoric sites, including pueblo ruins and a fully restored kiva on the self-guided tour of Kelly Place property. Hike from here into Canyons of the Ancients National Monument on our northern border through the natural beauty of pinon-juniper canyons to remote cliff-dwellings. Relax in our Spanish-style courtyard, gazing at the 10,000-foot mountain and watching brightly colored birds while sipping a glass of local McElmo Canyon wine or a frosty beer on tap from our local brewery. Experience our relaxed southwestern hospitality, fruit trees and scrumptious home-style breakfasts. The adobe-style lodge features a comfortable lounge area with music, library, computer, dvds and games. Lodge rooms, cabins, RV and tent sites are available. Cabins have cooking and grill facilities, some with fireplace and a jetted tub. Free wifi is available throughout. ... more   less
