Keillor's Clifton retreat goes on market


Anyone with a million dollars to spare can be the proud owner of Garrison Keillor's vacation retreat in the town of Clifton.

The famous host of the public radio show "A Prairie Home Companion" wants to get rid of his 11-acre property along the Saint Croix River in Pierce County. He has not said why he wants to sell it - and his real estate agent, Joyce Peterson of Coldwell Banker, says she doesn't know why.

The property has a detached office where Keillor wrote his novel "Wobegon Boy." There's also a log house, a guest house, a studio, clay tennis courts, and 460-feet of shoreline along the river.

The Keillor retreat is less than an hour from his main house in Saint Paul, where he's spent 38 years hosting "A Prairie Home Companion" on almost 600 U.S. radio stations.
