We are looking for a short-term house sitter for two weeks from February 4, 2023 through February 19, 2023 in London, Kentucky, USA.
Get away from it all, escape to the woods. Our remotely located 22 acres of forested property bordering the Daniel Boone National Forest is a great wilderness retreat. If you are a city person, this is not for you. IT IS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WOODS. If you are looking to find solitude & peaceful seclusion in beautiful surroundings, you'll find it here!
Bring your binoculars, there's lots of birds & wildlife to see. Also some great hiking opportunities through mixed hardwood forests, close to many scenic waterways.
We need pet care for three dogs, one fresh-water tank of tropical fish, all pets are easy to take care of.
LOCATION: This area in the Daniel Boone National Forest, Kentucky USA is a beautiful place to visit any time of year. Berea, Lexington, Louisville, Mammoth Cave National Park, Bowling Green and the local state/national parks are well worth a visit. Levi Jackson, Camp Wildcat (Civil War Battlefield) State Parks, Woods Creek Lake, Laurel Lake, Rockcastle River, Sinking Valley, Wolfe Creek Dam & Fishery, Cumberland Falls, Lake Cumberland, Pine Mountain State & Cumberland Gap National Parks are all within a short drive. If you have never visited this area and love the outdoors, this is a great rural place to visit any time of year!
The climate here is fairly mild. But you never know what the weather will be in the KY winters. There have been times we went hiking in Jan & Feb 60 degree weather. Or there could be an ice storm where driving is hazardous, best to stay close to home. A 4-wheel drive vehicle is preferred, in case it snows.
Our 10+ year old home is fairly well maintained with all modern conveniences & water from our local Woods Creek Lake reservoir.
We don't expect anything other than someone to watch the house & property, take care of our animals & clean up after themselves. We are looking for experienced housesitter/s with verifiable references.
In exchange, you will have use of PC & satellite internet, satellite TVs w/many premium channels & DVR, DVD/CD player, a fully equipped modern kitchen, CDs/DVDs, books, games, privacy & seclusion in the middle of the woods in a cozy, homey, unpretentious atmosphere.
We do also have 2 rental homes on the property, 1 will be vacant, the other has tenants, but should not need any attention while you're here.
So please respond if you are interested & available with your background, references & rates.
