We are looking for non-smoking caretaker/s who can attend to the house and kitties for about 5-6 weeks in September and October. Sorry, no pets with you unless they stay in your rig, as one cat is terrified of other animals. Beautiful mountains surround our valley. The Blue Ridge runs by on the east; the Appalachian Trail is just west of us.
Our home is a brick rancher with two fireplaces and a walk-out basement, in a well kept neighborhood in the Roanoke Valley. Roanoke is a laid back community, with college town Salem starting just at our back fence.
You would be welcome to arrive the day before and leave the day after should that make the stay more doable for you. The two black beauty cats are satunt Spirit and puff-ball Ariel. We also feed the outside wild birds and squirrels daily, and water the critters and plants both inside and outside as needed.
We feel confident that you'll find this an enjoyable place to stay. Our first year here felt like a vacation.
We hope to hear from you soon!
Anne and Lee
