We are seeking a non-smoking single person or couple to look after our home and garden and care for our five-year-old dog, Caesar. He's a friendly, energetic fellow who loves to play. He stays nearby while I'm working outside, and will always come when you call him using the phrase "cookie time!"--and give him a treat when he arrives.
Our home is a 2 bedroom/2 bath contemporary design, with an open kitchen/dining/living plan and a deck. We have fruit, vegetable, herb and perennial gardens on our 42 acre property on the side of a mountain. It's very quiet here, so ideally the sitter would feel comfortable alone in a rural environment. We are near hiking and biking trails (including the final segment of the Long Trail), golf courses, and the Jay Peak Resort. We have internet access that is reliable though slow-ish (DSL--but one can stream movies, etc.).
Responsibilities include playing with Caesar, watering and weeding the garden, picking the ripe produce, and keeping the house tidy.
