About

Hollyhock Cottage is located in Emma (rural Basalt) in Pitkin County. The Cottage has a lovely yard with hollyhock gardens that we tend in the Summer. There is also a small woodland, a community garden and pasture, and a small seasonal creek. The Nature Nursery School utilizes our lovely rural setting for daily nature exploration.
