Recently remodeled, the house is equipped with all new paint, flooring, appliances and furnishings.

Upstairs, the house has two bedrooms, one with a king-sized bed and one with a queen-sized bed, as well as a full-sized bathroom. The living room has a large flat screen television, complete with Apple TV, Netflix and an enhanced speaker system. The clean, spacious kitchen has been newly outfitted with everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal, including high-quality pots, pans and knives, a coffee/espresso maker and tableware for 12 people. The eat-in kitchen has a table that can expand to seat 6.

The downstairs bedroom includes a king-sized bed plus a daybed/trundle with two twin mattresses, and a sitting area with it's own flat screen television, Apple TV and Netflix. The large downstairs bathroom is complete with a shower and jacuzzi tub for soaking after a long hike.

All beds have high quality mattresses, linens and pillows for your home away comfort. Bathrooms are stocked with travel-sized toiletries, including bath salts for the jacuzzi tub. You'll find everything you need for your morning coffee or tea in the kitchen.

One of the biggest perks of staying at the Poppy House is the large, completely fenced in, grassy backyard. It is suitable for pets, kids, volleyball and other outdoor activities.

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.

  • 5 of 5

Poppy House is extremely charming. All of our needs seem to be taken care of in the house, not least of which include being able to bring our pooches with us. We look forward to coming back every year, and I wouldn’t change a thing!

Great place to stay for Best Friends staff

  • 5 of 5

We love Poppy House! It's so comfortable, but not cookie-cutter. Very comfortable beds, fully-stocked kitchen, and great yard. We had a sleepover pup from the sanctuary, and it was very pet-friendly. My only hesitation in recommending it is that someone else will reserve it when I want to stay here next!

once again, a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I and 2 dogs stayed at the Poppy House in the summer of 2016 and loved it. The only problem is that the weather was hot! So this year, we went in early October and the weather was perfect. The home is clean and inviting with a great kitchen. Whenever I had a question I've always been able to reach the owner promptly. The yard is made for dogs to romp, and we had fun videoing our two large dogs playing and running on the grass!

We hope to stay again next year -we volunteer at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and Poppy House is only a 10-15 minute drive from there.

Poppy House rocks

This is my second stay at one of Ginger's Kanab houses and it was another great experience. The house was comfortable and well equipped. The location is perfect for visiting the various sites in the area along with being perfectly located in Kanab. Thanks, Ginger.
