“ A lovely Story ”

Sit Dates Sep-25-21 - May-16-22 Sitter Tahoe_Trails, Member Since Mar-31-21

If you like life very quiet and slow, then consider Mel's place in Story, WY. His is a large and lovely place in the tall trees of the Big Horn Mountains. There was almost zero care required for the yard during my stay and shoveling snow was the only significant task required outside the house. During my nearly 8 month stay, Mel required that I pay for all utilities except for propane which he paid most of. We signed an agreement of expectations when I arrived, then I mostly didn't hear from him until he returned (unless I had a question). While there I completed some woodworking projects in his very spacious but unheated garage. I recommend this house sit for the right person.
