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 15-years old, and very lovable. She is a Jack Russell who enjoys walking our low-traffic neighborhood loop once each day and otherwise sleeps alot. She is healthy and sweet, and loves to have someone near. 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.
