Mulberry Place is in the village of Alto Pass, in the Shawnee National Forest, and along the Southern IL wine trail. Adjacent to the Victorian home of your host, it is a separate 720 sq ft cottage, renovated in 2017-18, with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, washer/dryer, fully-equipped kitchen, dining/living area, TV (Amazon/wifi), and deck with views of woods and valley, .

The space
Your hosts are founding members of The Angelina Foundation for Animal Welfare, a foster-home based, non-profit rescue. As a result of our rescue activities, there is a resident population of fully-vetted (spayed/neutered) cats that live both indoors and outdoors. While the inside of the cottage is pet-free, some of our feline residents may choose to visit you on the deck or patio. While we would love to offer dog-friendly lodging, we have chosen not to, to ensure the safety of our felines.

Other things to note
The Cottage at Mulberry Place is seconds away from a lovely and historic walking trail, The Quetil Trail, which is a former railroad bed. From the trail, one can ascend a stone stairway (built by the Civilian Conservation Corps, CCC, during the 1930s), up to a breathtaking view from Cliff View Park. The SIU Climbing Club has outfitted several of the boulders for rock climbing. In addition, just a few miles "up the hill" is the Bald Knob Cross of Peace, with a 360 degree view of the surrounding Shawnee National Forest. There is a wealth of outdoor activities to choose from nearby- Cedar Lake is accessible from the Pomona Boat Launch (4 miles), and there are options too numerous to mention awaiting you in the Shawnee National Forest.

I am, by profession, a teacher of physiology and anatomy... but in my life outside of school I wield many irons (in the fire). I am caregiver, pet rescuer, musician, and the Aunt with chewing gum at the ready in her pocket ...There are never enough hours in the day, and I am OK with that. I will not be bored a single moment after I retire. I embrace every single day and try to minimize any negative effects of my being here on this planet.
