Clinton, Wisconsin, United States

Traditional, Quaint Midwest Home

House 4 3 1
About Our Home
Our one-story home is located in the village of Clinton, Wisconsin. It has a population of a little over 2,000 and has a radius of 1.3 miles. It has decent sized yard, lawn furniture, front porch, and garage. Clinton is a farm-town, a family-friendly environment, and attracts many retired couples. There is WiFi (password will be given) and all of the rooms as well as the living room have cable TV. We do have cats and a dog but we can make arrangements if this may pose any problems. We recommend checking out the nearby cities (Beloit, Janesville, Madison--the capital, and Machesney Park--in Illinois) if you are looking for more shopping, eating, and entertainment options. A trip to Chicago is also highly recommended (drive to Harvard train station and take train to Ogilvie Transportation Center--very inexpensive and exciting). This allows you to visit classic American city-life without the ridiculous prices and possible dangers of living in the city. Any questions-- ask us.
Special Considerations
No smoking in the house, no plant care, just place food on back steps for the outside cat, close windows if the air conditioner is on, and keep in mind that Clinton is not a thriving metropolis-- it is meant for a family or anybody who wants to experience the life of an average American.
Olive Garden (Janesville), Starbucks (Beloit), Applebee's (Beloit), Passport Pizza (Clinton), Sundown Cafe (Clinton)
Movies: AMC Theaters in Machesney Park, Bowling: Cougar Lanes in Clinton, Bars: Boxcars in Clinton and many more options in bigger cities like Madison
Janesville Mall, Cherryvale Mall (near Rockford, Illinois), State Street shopping in Madison (college-town area), West Towne or East Towne Mall in Madison

  Personal Message

I have never been outside of America so I am very eager to experience it especially since my children are old enough now! I have had a steady income for most of my adult life, I love my home and neighborhood, and I appreciate everything I have experienced and received. I am hoping to leave during holiday breaks since I have limited vacation time and my daughter is in college now. I am very excited to experience a home exchange and will be very respectful and responsible with everything you lend...
