Santa Claus farmhouse description

Privacy and beauty of country living, yet convenient access. This beautiful homestead is nestled in the rolling hills between Santa Claus and Mariah Hill.

This is a spacious 2,500 sq ft two story home with a large living room, large dining room, full kitchen, woodburning fireplace. There is plenty of room, inside and out, to spread out and relax. You have plenty of bedrooms, as well as beds, so you have privacy and comfort. There are actual beds for 10 people, plus the pullouts.

The rental price includes your bed linens and towels, as well as a good supply of paper products such as toilet paper and paper towels, and dishwasher detergent, etc. Many places charge extra for these supplies. I try to have things there so all that you need to pack is your clothing, toiletries, and beach towels.

Two covered porches for enjoying the sunrises and sunsets. Beautiful view!

House layout would work well for one or multiple families. This lovely home is secluded enough to have plenty of privacy, but close enough that you don't feel isolated. While staying here, you are amidst the sights and sounds of nature, including cows and donkeys.

The house is also available on a monthly rental. Moving into the area and not yet sure where you want to live? Working at a local company on a temporary project? Need a transition home after you have sold your residence? Contact me for more information.
