Kelly Place is a unique gem located in the stunning McElmo Canyon near Cortez, Colorado. Both an archeological and horticultural preserve, Kelly Place has significant, documented prehistoric Anasazi/Ancient Puebloan sites on the 38-acre estate. Guests may follow our self-guided tour to any of these. Canyons of the Ancients National Monument, with the highest density of Ancestral Puebloan ("cliff-dweller") sites, borders Kelly Place to the north. Guests may enjoy hiking into the sculpted red-rock canyons and mesas located just out our back door. Close by are Mesa Verde National Park and Hovenweep National Monument, a little farther out you'll find Monument Valley and Arches National Park. You'll find Kelly Place can be your Southwest retreat. Your hosts Cindy and Allison became custodians of Kelly Place in January 2021 and are currently renovating the main lodge and kitchen. We have opened several dwellings on the property that have cooking facilities so that our guests can be independent while enjoying all that surrounds while we upgrade. We wish to share this special place with you and offer clean rooms, excellent coffee, lots of hot water mixed in with immense love and awe of the land and it's heritage.
