The Poppy House, so named for it's golden bricks and bright red roof, has all the convenience, comfort and character you could wish for in a vacation home. The house is located in downtown Kanab, walking distance from restaurants and shops and several local trail heads for hiking. 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. There is a large, shaded patio with a BBQ and outdoor seating for 4. There is even a 'cattery' should you have a cat sleepover from Best Friends during your stay!

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.

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.

Lovely house in great location!

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for our group of 4 adults and 3 kids (ages 12 & 15). The kitchen is incredibly well stocked with everything we needed - some spices & olive oil, pots/pans, utensils, knives that would actually cut/chop and enough dishes that we didn't have to run the dishwasher more than once a day. All of the beds/mattresses were very comfortable, and there was plenty of space (dressers, closets) for our stuff. The house is well furnished and decorated. Great location - we walked to Main Street and to a fantastic hike above the city park (Squaw Trail). The spacious backyard was great for our dog. Our fairly high standards for cleanliness were met - we had a couple minor issues that I shared with the owner after we left, and she was very responsive and appreciative of the feedback. We would definitely stay here again!

The property was in a great location. Easy walking distance to shops and restaurants.

Beds very comfortable. Some maintence required though. Small patch on Kitchen ceiling, hinge on one cabinate and upper bath shower pressure and draining.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at the Poppy House! We had everything we needed and the fenced back yard was perfect for our dogs! The beds were super comfortable to come home to after hiking all day. Ginger was readily available to answer any questions as well. Would definitely stay here again!

Adorable little home away from home. Very comfortable and plush bedding. Great kitchen appliances!

  • 4 of 5

Overall experience fantastic. Would return. Happy the home was pet friendly. Home was very clean and would never know it allowed pets. No smell or fur. Our service dog was a happy little camper and was not sniffing around. Easy and convenient access to backyard.

Kitchen had so many more pots and pans and utensils than expected. Nice Kitchen Aid Blender, several spices and extra goodies. FYI.....the two grocery stores in town we found were great and had everything we needed to cook our Christmas dinner.

We did have trouble with the wireless router that was in the basement. We wanted to order movies on Direct TV and could never figure it out. Ginger was sweet to text us directions, but with it being Christmas weekend, we didn't want to bother her anymore.

Thanks Poppy House for wonderful and quaint accommodations. Hope we can return someday.

We even got snow for Christmas!

Great property with lots of space inside and out!

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice house with lots of space for even large gatherings. Perfect location for visiting National Parks in Utah. Buddy V's was an amazing restaurant nearby that is a must! Ginger provided excellent service!
