About this assignment

Clean, neat, tidy, non smoking/vaping, drug free, responsible, honest, individual or couple with integrity and common sense, to love and care for our yard (always), and our home and two kitty boys, while we are gone. Compassionate nature is essential.
Must also be nature/ecologically minded, as our property is wildlife friendly, and a certified National Wildlife Federation Habitat.
Looking for people with a great sense of humor, as laughter is essential in these unusual times. Mean spiritedness, racism, sexism, other "isms" etc.,will not be tolerated, period. Q-Anon/conspiracy theory believers need not bother to inquire. Full vaccination against COVID-19 is required.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Duties will mainly be yard work, both while we are home and when we are away, as well as daily care of our home, plants, and 2 cats while we are traveling. We don't have a large part of the property that is maintained, so yard work will mainly consist of mowing grass and weed whacking on the approximately 1.5-2 acres total, as well as occasional pulling of weeds (we do not use chemicals except on kudzu), Planting flowers, and trimming vines and shrubs on occasion. We have lithium battery powered lawn equipment, including riding and push mowers, so you won't have to worry about fussing with gas!

What are the good features of the property and location

Our home and cabin are located on 8 acres, on a rushing creek, just 3.5 miles from Historic Downtown Ellijay, in the beautiful N Georgia mountains. You will be staying in our charming, fully furnished 1 bedroom cabin, complete with central heating/air, ROKU TV, landline phone, internet, and washer and dryer. There is also a firepit and propane grill.
We have beauty and privacy (there are neighbors, but homes not visible from our house), like in the middle of nowhere, but still so close to everything! Convenient to Atlanta, Chattanooga, TN, and Asheville, NC, should you want to take a day trip, 6-7 hour drive to either the Atlantic or Gulf coasts, for longer jaunts away while we are in town.

What does the house sitter need to consider before applying for this assignment

We will be home for a good part of the time, but on the road frequently, too. You will have as much privacy as you desire in the cabin, even while we are home- but we would love to visit, too, if you're up for it!
We are looking for long term folk, so if you and we are all happy after the initial 3 months, we are open to extending your stay.

Great month in the North Georgia Mountains

Had a great time at Mel & Robins beautiful stream side home. Far enough from town yet close enough to take advantage of all the local mountain town activities. You could not ask for cuter, sweeter or cuddlier cats than Leo (let me roll over in front of your feet and make you pet me) and Scooter Bob (I will try to get away with anything you let me, but I am so cute you cant resist me). Wish I could figure out how to upload photos of the fur ball kitty boys, they will be missed! Thanks again Robin, we enjoyed it!

Quiet and peaceful

Pleasant peaceful place with view of stream in front. Great place to relax, read, hike and/or bird watch. Mel and Robin are friendly, interesting people.
