TO Everyone:

This is a re-post after taking it down because we had a repeat sitter available.  She just advised us that she has had an emergency family matter, and won't be available.  We are reaching out again, and would appreciate feedback from interested sitters that are still available.  Thank you so much.

We are looking for a house sitter from late September until mid-November, 2020.

We are a retired couple, and travel a fair amount in our motorhome.  Our small dogs travel with us, but there is a cat at home, as well as a fair amount of house plants that need watering.  The cat is very low-maintenance, and has an in/out door.  He loves to be petted when people are around, but he's overall very self-sufficiient, so if you'd like to take short trips for a day or two or three or four to explore the area, all would be just fine. 

We live in a very small town on the Western Slope of Colorado called Cedaredge, which is about 15 miles northeast of Delta, CO, and about 50 miles southeast of Grand Junction.  We are located on the south side of the Grand Mesa, the largest flat-top mountain in the world.  The area is primarily an orchard area, and grows apples, peaches, apricots, cherries, plums, and grapes, some of which will be in prime harvest during the time we'll be gone.  Our property is only about 3 acres, but the area in general is absolutely loaded with large orchards.  We grow a neighborhood garden, a few outside flowers, and a few fruit trees, although all our fruit (except tomatoes) will be done before we go.  We also have a small pond/water feature with fish, but it requires very little attention, other than throwing pellets to the fish and adding water occasionally. 

Our house is a modest 1940s farmhouse that we bought and renovated several years ago, and is situated just north of Cedaredge, with spectacular views of the San Juan Mountains and the Uncompaghre Plateau.  Outdoor opportunities abound in the area, with great fishing, hiking, bicycling, canoeing, kayaking, rafting, camping, etc.

If you are interested in spending a little time in western Colorado this fall, we'd love to hear from you.  Our dates are a little flexible, so please let us know your schedule if you're interested.  We'd need to leave by late September (30th at latest), and anticipate being back around the middle of November.   

Thanks so much for reviewing our post.  We've used a Housecarers  housesitter many times now, and our experiences have been absolutely wonderful for both us and the housesitters.

We will provide pictures to interested candidates. We look forward to hearing from any interested sitters.  Thank you.
