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.

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.

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.

Fantastic location! Will stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time at the Poppyhouse! We had everything we needed and plenty of room! Our dogs enjoyed the closed backyard with plenty of grass for running around! Made plenty of use of the bbq and kitchen. Home is within walking distance of some great restaurants and all around had some great views. Will definitely plan to stay here again on our next trip to Kanab!
