Update June 2015 : James Last takes over LP's LPs

This is the second time that I have experienced this:

I spent all day yesterday cleaning up and sorting James Last records. I like him, I think his music is fantastic and unique. Later that night I found out he had just died this same day.

So, today is non stop James Last all day party.























The last time it was Elvis. I bought a large collection off someone, it was 90% Elvis. I sorted and polished them, put them neatly into a special box I had designed for the king, while listening to his records all day. Guess what? It was his birthday! And I didn't even know! That is special.






















After James it's outer space time with a bounty of cosmic jams and electro sounds.

Mandre

Hotline

Immortals

Lazer

Artist's retreat, Acadian Hideaway

East coast studio and retreat available to rent on a daily/weekly or even monthly basis. Available 4 seasons. Located off a local highway 80km from Moncton New Brunswick. This is a great place for a solitary retreat, a quiet place to collect your thoughts, meditate, work on art projects, read, write and relax. Alone or with a small group.


 Accessible by train, the VIA station is located 10 minutes walk away. All amenities are also less than 20 minutes walk. The house is over 100 years old and is clean, bright and cozy. There are 3 bedrooms and two common rooms, one bathroom with a tub, a kitchen with hotplate and mini fridge. There is a modern wood burning furnace and plenty of wood as well as electric heat for cold mornings. The house sits on 2 acres of forested land with a view of the village park across the road.


The fields and small running stream in the backyard are home to frogs and crickets.

An elementary school is located about 1km away and children use the park for cycling and baseball.









The house is furnished minimally, The atmosphere is rustic and simple. The walls and floors are bare and there is little to no clutter.


The tranquil environment offers peace of mind to work on projects while enjoying clean air and natural space.
There are plenty of walking trails and country roads to bike on, and two bikes available to use.

The Atlantic ocean is a 30 minute drive away, by car, and beautiful Kouchibuqak national park.

Miramichi and historic Chatham are also near by for restaurants, museums, shopping etc.

This is far from being a tourist destination, but natural beauty and local history are rich in these parts.



Bring your own sleeping bag and towel. Everything else is provided.

The water comes from a natural well and is clean & tested.

There is a bluegrass festival every autumn and an arena in town along with a Co-op grocery, farmers market, liquor store, post office, and a couple restaurants.

There are two monasteries nearby and an old church and cemetery.



Please email me for further details and prices.

Rates are very reasonable.

I may ask to see a portfolio or ask the reason for the stay.

It is designed for writers and artists but can accommodate anyone who is not expecting a touristy setting.
