About Ginger Kelly

We became enchanted with Kanab on our first visit in 2011, and have returned twice a year since then. We love working at the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, hiking on the local trails and we enjoy the friendliness of the small town.

Our Stay at the Poppy House

  • 5 of 5

Hi Ginger....we had a great time and of course your home was so comfortable

I love the fact that it is close to everything and has everything you could ever need

for a pleasant stay...The only problem was that there was no vacuum cleaner available

or broom and I had to sweep the rug in the living room...I just brought a broom at the dollar store..but that was ok..I like to keep things the same as we found them

We had a great time at Best Friends...could not bring a dog home for a sleepover because

Haylee is only 9 and you have to be 10...but that is ok

The girls really enjoyed the Community Swimming pool....it is affordable and with the slide and lazy river they really loved it...Thanks again for the great house ....it made our stay perfect....thanks Anita Pardy

Great place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

We stopped in Kanab during a cross country move. Poppy House was perfect for our large family. It gave us a break from traveling. We could easily catch-up on laundry. We went to Zion Canyon and the North Rim. Both were excellent. We had BBQ at the park on the 4th and watched the fireworks from the front yard! Excellent place to stay!!

Comfortable Home!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our recent stay at the Poppy House--especially the very large back yard. The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed our time outdoors with our sleepover dog from Best Friends. We had a maintenance problem with the front door. I called Ginger and she answered on the second ring. After explaining our problem, she contacted her property manager who was at our door in about 20 minutes. He fixed the problem and we were all on our way. The home is older, but very comfortable, and the location could not be better. Thank you for the Poppy House and your prompt response to our situation.

Love Poppy House!

  • 5 of 5

Three of us stayed in the home, and it was delightful as ever (repeat visit). It's clean and well-appointed, with everything we needed. There's a great coffee maker and barbecue, which we used. The yard is wonderful, and we had breakfast or cocktails on the patio daily.

Pretty nice place but it has limitations

  • 3 of 5

Very well maintained older home. First the bad:

The third bedroom is in the basement so whoever uses it must be mobile to use the stairs. Actually you also have 5 steps up to the main floor from the street.

Also, you park on hard packed dirt, so in rainy season you make a heck of a mess in you car.

Outside of those drawbacks the house is comfortable for up to 6 people. The limiting factor is the dining table. If that's not important to you, then it'll sleep 8 with the trundle beds in the basement bedroom. The kitchen is one of the best equipped around. Newer appliances. Nice front porch with a covered rear patio. The beds are as good as you'll find anywhere. Great location except that it's on the same street as the hospital so it's busy during the day. No traffic noise inside. Just outside. The owner is very nice and fixes anything immediately. I would stay here again unless it's raining.
