We are looking for a responsible person/couple to house sit from late mid August 2018 through mid September 2018.This person/couple should like the countryside, gorgeous vistas, hiking trails and pets.
The house sitter/s will be asked to feed, water, walk and befriend our vigorous 3-year-old dog Fiona and our elderly dachshund Louie, feed and water the few house plants we have. The grass and gardens are taken care of by others.
We live on a 300-acre property with an 1840s farmhouse that is located in Western Massachusetts. We have extensive hiking trails, a small woodland cabin and are in walking distance of a beautiful river for swimming and tubing/canoeing;The property is not far from the 5-college area of Northampton/Amherst which has great restaurants, shopping and cultural opportunities. Our house is large and comfortable with beautiful gardens. We have broadband internet, and various streaming services for watching movies, etc.
Potential house sitters should have their driver's license - there will be a car available to use. They should also like being fairly far out in the country. The closest grocery is about 6 miles away. They really need to like dogs because our foremost concern is for the health and happiness of our pets.
