We are looking for mature and experienced persons to care for our home, cat, and chickens from December 18 to January 6 (or a significant chunk of that time).

Our home is a spacious, recently constructed, modern, architect-designed house in a beautiful rural setting in central Vermont. The house features plenty of light and large windows that overlook the Champlain Valley and the majestic Adirondack mountains. There are spectacular daytime and sunset views from all main living spaces as well as all three bedrooms. We have a fully equipped kitchen for those who like to cook. For chilly winter evenings we have a woodburning stove as well as radiant heat to keep you toasty. The house features three bedrooms (one is a child's room). There are two full baths, an open living room / kitchen / dining room space, a loft, a library / playroom.  The house is about 3,000 square feet (or 900 meters squared).  We have internet and netflix, but do not have sattelite or cable TV.  For those who like nature, there are easy hiking trails very closeby as well as more ambitious trails in the nearby Green Mountains and Adirondacks. There is also plenty of access to downhill and cross-country skiing and various other winter sports. We are centrally located in Vermont so it is easy to visit many of the picturesque and charming small towns around the state and explore the rich local culture (winter farmer's markets, artisan cheeses, maple syrup, beautiful crafts, covered bridges, and more). We live very near the town of Middlebury and the town of Vergennes. The larger city of Burlington is 45 minutes by car. Montreal is 2.5 hours, Boston 4.5 hours and New York 5.5 hours. We are happy to provide pictures and more information to anyone interested.

We would like someone with home ownership experience to respond to our ad, and prefer a two person duo. We have one indoor/outdoor cat, who will need to be fed and attended to regularly (feedings twice a day, cleaning litter box daily).  We also have five chickens that require minimal care (food and water check once a day, as well as collecting eggs daily and that is all). Thank you for considering us!
