We are looking for a dog and house-sitter this August (Our scheduled sitter had to bow out.) Our 2,000 sq ft. 3-bedroom home is decorated with character-filled antiques and comfortable places to lounge. Our 3-acre property has gorgeous gardens and  nice neighbors. Our dog Pippi is a 17-year old Jack Russell who mostly just sleeps and eats, but gets upset if left for more than 4-5 hours during the day and 3 hours in the evening. She is mostly deaf but otherwise in good health. The ideal candidate is someone who likes dogs, is tidy, and who wants a beautiful, peaceful place to have a retreat. 

We have an apartment attached to the house occupied by a student attending a nearby woodworking school, and we would need you to take care of any issues if they arise by contacting our handyman.

Pippi can be easily left for 3-5 hours, so you would be free to explore the surrounding area in shorter stints. Seaside towns of Camden, Rockport, and Rockland are a few minutes away. There is great hiking in the Camden Hills State Park, with 360 degree views of lakes and the islands in the bay. We are located in a quiet cul-de-sac, but there are fantastic restaurants, food coops and an excellent grocery store all within a 10-minutes drive.
