About this sitter

We are retired, in our 60's,college educated, healthy and active. Hobbies include running, hiking, biking, reading, birding, traveling,violin/fiddle, painting/crafts etc. We prefer a rural, quiet setting on acreage. The ideal would include nearby nature preserves, forest, parks nearby to explore yet not too far from cultural events like theater, music, art, etc. Would be perfect if there was a beg. Old Time or string music group to join in the area. We have a home on Neebish Island in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The winter is rather harsh and the ferry shuts down for a period of time so we prefer to leave for warmer climate............
NEW: we have moved to N. Arkansas, still looking to perhaps escaping part of winter and the HOT months of the summer....

Why they want to house sit

To experience and explore new areas of the country while making new friends, human and animal.

Great Sitters - Will Use Again

Wendy and Dennis recently watched our dog and our home for a week. They were friendly, dependable, clean, and the dog enjoyed having them here. They stayed in contact with me and sent pictures letting me know how and what Coco was doing. The house was cleaner when I came home than it was when I left. They are very trustworthy and we will definitely use them again!
