*** DO NOT BELIEVE THEM EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE CUTE! ***

from time to time there have been small dogs that have stayed in Mulberry but we have tried to use our other cottage Willow to house any dogs to keep Mulberry as animal free as possible for those that have allergies.

RENTING WITH DOGS:
we except dogs 20 lbs and under. dogs need to be created indoor while guest are away and on leashes while in the gardens.

THE NEW TOURIST TRADE:
the legalization of cannabis has come to colorado and we ask not smoke in the cottage but please feel free to use the smoking section in the front garden.

As of Jan,1 2014 Colorado now has shops that legally sell cannabis.

I have list in the cottage of the local shops where anyone 21 and over can go with an ID and purchase.

Jennifer & Giovanni

Denver, Colorado, United States · Joined in July 2008

We are a community of artists and tinkerers.

We enjoy many activities here in Denver - cooking, growing fruits and vegetables are some that we get to do here at the cottages along with mixed media projects and furniture building.

We are always up to some new outdoor project when the Colorado weather permits and hunker down inside by the fire in the winter keeping our hands busy with knitting, card making or some other project we can dream up.

Giovanni and I have grown in our collaborations and embrace our age and abilities for self governance in employment - Giovanni had moved into documentaries and I have been spending more time in the commercial film community.

We have been in the lower highlands for over a decade now and have marveled in the changing landscape and exciting times for new restaurants, breweries and galleries. We still love to take advantage of the great walks thru the neighborhood and down by the river as often as we can.
