Jerome - From Mining Boom Town to Art Destination: Once a roaring copper town, Jerome became a ghost town in the 1950's when the mines closed. There is much interesting history in this charming mile high gem. The entire town is on the National Historic Registry and The Kelly House is individually listed, as well. Because of this, the character of the town is unique and well protected. Today, the 400 residents welcome not only history buffs but art lovers to over 30 galleries and studios.

Donna and Ken Chesler purchased and renovated The Kelly House in 2004. They sold the house in 2013 but continue to manage it with the same attention to detail that has been the hallmark of this wonderful home. Donna was the president of The Jerome Chamber of Commerce in 2015 and is a consummate volunteer in the Town of Jerome.
Off street parking and walk to everything location makes The Kelly House a desirable vacation rental for a night or a month.
This is one of the the best stocked vacation homes we have stayed at. Donna and Ken have made this place a true home away from home. Great views from inside and lots of excellent patio space too. We look forward to staying again and recommend it as a perfect way to enjoy Jerome and the surrounding area.
This was the second time we stayed here and we love it! Great location, nice rooms, and the view is spectacular.
What a great place to stay, the views are the best, the place has everything you need. We lived like rock stars for a week, best vacation ever
We had a wonderful stay at the Kelly House in Jerome! The house, which is right on Main Street, is beautiful and the gracious host, Donna, left lots of nice touches for us. We used the house as a base for a couple of days exploring not only Jerome, but Sedona and a day trip up to the Grand Canyon. Jerome itself is charming and fun to explore. We highly recommend the house!
One of the best stays of our many trips. This had everything from a spotless kitchen and bed rooms to a small backyard. I have lived in Arizona for 52 years and never seen a better view from the balcony. We will be back. A+ Jeff and Kelly
My friends and I were floored upon our arrival at the Kelly House. The owners are beyond nice and accommodating. The house is beautiful and has everything you could ever need. All you have to bring is a toothbrush and clothes and everything else is there for you. I will definitely go back and I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a fantastic place to stay.
