TOWN OF CLIFTON, Wis. (WCCO) — It’s not on Lake Wobegon, but “Prairie Home Companion” fans have a chance to buy Garrison Keillor’s retreat in Wisconsin.

The 11-acre property includes 460 feet of shoreline along the St. Croix River.

It has a main house with a giant wrap-around porch, a giant studio, a cozy guest house and a writer’s cottage.

That cottage is where Keillor wrote “A Prairie Home Companion” and “Wobegon Boy.”

Keillor splits his time between a place overlooking New York’s Central Park and his home on Summit Avenue in St. Paul.

The St. Croix home is listed for $995,000.

    I would love to have that home, great deer hunting right out his front door. Also good fishing at the bottom of the hill (St. Croix)
