All about Claire’s place

If you like trains, nature, and privacy – you’ll love place. I just purchased this and am renting it when I’m on assignment.

Yes, it’s a work in progress, but I hope you see the potential and enjoy it. :)
Because I’m not home much, and I’m a nature nerd - I don’t have a TV -sorry about that.

There’s plenty of room for parking, your hiking stuff, and your kayaks.
I do have a dog – but she travels with me.

Please, no pets; No smoking;

The space
Yeah, I call it my Granny place, because right now there’s old carpet – ugh – we’re working on that.
But when you stay here – you’ll feel you’re on the verge of going off grid. It’s a happy space that has been loved and appreciated for EONs before I bought it.

This house was built in the 1920’s, and moved to it’s current location in 1958. The foundation was partly built with old barn trusses. There are LOTS of memories – I just wish I could have seen that HUGE walnut tree before it fell.
You’ll have about 3 acres to roam, you’ll be able to watch trains go by, and walk to the river if you walk North.

VERY important! Entrance to and Exist from my place.
This is very important, because I am a critical care nurse, and I don’t want to see you or have any of my local peers see you, because of an accident.
As you exit Union road to the dirt road – go slowly!
When you are leaving IF – you see a car on your RIGHT or your LEFT, do NOT pull out on to Union Rd, as the speed limit for those cars is 55 mph.

Always wave to the conductor. Sometimes he’ll honk
