In 1890, John Mouat built the mansion for his wife Amelia and their five children.  Nestled in the historic neighborhood of the Potter Highlands, which was created and settled by the Scottish in 1863, it is now a charming Bed and BreakfastIt has five rooms, all with private baths and Jacuzzi tubs, and all of the rooms have updated modern showers. Each room has a unique wallpaper design on the ceiling created and installed by Bradbury and Bradbury, world renowned creators of fine wallpapers. Unlike many B&Bs, the rooms in this mansion are spacious and very comfortable. Each room has it’s own unique design and is decorated with antiques which lend to the genuine mansion experience.

Because of the age of the mansion, we do not have an elevator. All guest rooms are located on the second floor, and the grand ballroom is located on the third floor. Please note that due to this, we are not always able to facilitate those with mobility challenges.

The mansion has been beautifully restored to its original floor plan. The spacious third floor ballroom gives access to the top of the turret with great views of Downtown Denver and the surrounding Potter Highland neighborhood. In the 1890s, the ballroom originally hosted teas, dances and social functions for the elite of Denver through the 1890s continuing on into the early 1900s.

Behind the mansion, is our amazing spacious garden. It is an oasis in the city. Shaded by enormous narrow leafed cottonwood trees and filled with a variety of flowers, and fountains, the garden is amazing.
