We live on secluded and forested 50 acres, 11 miles south of the town of Florence, Colorado, with close access to National Forest and Bureau of Land Management. We are 1 hour drive away from the cities of Pueblo and Colorado Springs. The Pueblo Reservoir is close by for mountain biking, water sports and fishing, as is the Royal Gorge and the Arkansas River Valley with its many attractions, incl. rafting, fishing, hiking, horse back riding, zip lining, etc. The Bishop's Castle and Lake San Isabel with many opportunities for hiking and fishing are  a 45 min drive away. Denver can be reached in 2.5 hours and has of course many big city attractions. If you are interested in history, Bent's Old Fort is 2.5 hrs East and the Santa Fe Trail used to come close by here.

We have a 3 bedroom masonry house and a detached, single room guest suite with bathroom, electricity, guest WiFi, a stereo system, well water, swamp coolers,TV and DVD player, a large outdoor deck, and a hot tub. We are searching for an honest, responsible, and animal loving person and/or couple who would take care of our pets and livestock (3 horses, 3 dogs and 3 cats) and keep our house, greenhouse, and small outdoor garden plants alive during our absence. These chores take about minutes of time twice a day, AM and PM.

We will be traveling away from home from July 30 through August 18, 2024.  Since we have a guest suite, we would prefer an early arrival (at least 1-2 days before our departure) and could negotiate extending your stay after we return, if desired. An earlier arrival would give us the opportunity to get acquianted, and introduce you to all the chores and animals that will fall into your responsibility more comfortably.

We are looking forward to receiving a response from you. Please only serious and reliable inquiries. We can meet via Whatsapp, Facetime and/or Zoom ahead of time as needed. Please also provide references.
