For a long time, this house on 4th Street between Harvard and Yale was the Hair Cottage (before Ray and Terri moved to Harvard and Bonita and opened Rio de Ojas). Then it was a funeral store of some sort for a few years.
It was purchased by the Vintage Flip people, and a peek through the window during renovation showed this work in progress.
Here is what it looks like from the outside now.
In your next visit to Claremont, if you need a place to stay, this house is now an AirBnB, and is conveniently located to the Village and the Colleges.
This interior photo is from the listing on the AirBnB website.
This week’s photo challenge of weathered prompted these Claremont sightings.
This weathered building has had a makeover in the past few months. I prefer the weathered look.
When last Claremontography went looking for glass sculptures of thorns at RSABG, they were not on display. Now they are. You can find them in the Cultivar Garden.
A few weeks ago a column by David Allen in the Daily Bulletin shared a story about a Sue Grafton Claremont connection. This house on Baughman Ave. made an appearance in her first alphabet novel, A is for Alibi.
With her recent passing, the column was more timely than it may have imagined.
The Claremont Wilderness Trail is the most popular hike in the Wilderness Park. Sycamore Canyon is less-traveled, as is Johnson’s Pasture. You don’t need a permit to park near either of those trailheads. We had not been to Johnson’s Pasture since 1994. At that time we took our young daughters and asked them to point to our house. This was their response.
Christmas Eve was a great day to revisit this trail.
We saw this trail of hearts on a little spur.
And this Christmas tree.
While there are many photos to choose from this year, I chose this one because it 1) was in Claremont 2) hasn’t yet appeared in the blog 3) I rather like it. It was taken in the Claremont Wilderness Trial on a cloudy June day.
