We are looking for a house sitter and pet sitter who can take care of our dog and two cats at our home in a small town near the east side of Glacier National Park in Valier, Montana.
This housesit is perfect for someone who wants some peace and quiet, or wants to visit Glacier National Park (it's an hour's drive from our home) and experience the natural beauty of Montana.
Our dog is 10 years old, and a black lab/border collie cross. He prefers to stay outside, but usually comes in at night. We have a fenced yard, and we walk him once a day to Lake Frances, which is about a mile from our house. He likes women over men (not sure why) so we would prefer a couple or woman to take care of him.
Our two Maine Coon cats are older, in their teens. They are indoor/outdoor, but sleep inside at night. They need to be fed twice a day, and given lots of love and attention when you're around. They are very vocal and loving and super smart.
Our house is a two bedroom home with an office. It's about 1,000 square feet, but new and modern. We have a gorgeous yard and patio to sit and enjoy the sun. We have very dependable wireless internet, and Roku for television.
The town of Valier itself is primarily known for our man-made lake and recreation on the lake. There are a couple of restaurants, a grocery store, and few amenities. But there is plenty of opportunity for bird watching and wildlife viewing in the area.
Our dates are flexible. We're looking at the end of May - early June, but are open to leaving later in June if we find the right housesitter/petsitter who needs specific dates.
We were housesitter/petsitters for 15 months and used Housecarers many times as we traveled. It's a great way to get to know an area, and we will make you very welcome in our home while we're gone.
