We are looking for a non-smoking home, pet and plant sitter(s) who love country living, nature, and especially love cats! We live on 5.5 acres of flower gardens, trees, walking paths, and a garden pond. We are looking for house sitters who love cats and value keeping our house and property clean, neat and maintained as if it were their own home.
We live 8 miles from downtown Lincoln, NE - a vibrant community of 270,000 with all the cultural advantages of a university town (University of Nebraska). Lincoln provides a wide variety of activities including shopping, cinemas, libraries, antique stores, micro-breweries, parks, public golf courses, biking and hiking trails, live music and concert events and many sporting events. Winters in Eastern Nebraska are typically mild with low snowfall. We can have some pretty cold temperatures but typically they don't last long.
Our home is a three-bedroom three-bath ranch style home set on 5 acres. The road into Lincoln is paved. Our acreage is forested with many trees and large gardens, plus a variety of wildlife including deer, wild turkeys, and pheasants. Our backyard area includes large flower gardens, large deck, waterfalls and a pond full of water lilies and koi fish.
There are many sitting areas both inside and outside of our home. We have a fairly open floor plan on the main floor with patio doors off of the dining room opening to the deck area. Our living room is cozy and is a nice place to read. The kitchen includes two microwaves and a dishwasher. Downstairs we have a laundry room and a large TV room with a 60-inch flat screen television and DVD player. We will provide Internet wire & WI-FI service, as well as Netflix and Prime Video services.
We have 4 cats requiring daily care, with one needing a daily pill which he is very used to taking. Three of our cats enjoy having your attention, while Sissy is hard to get to know.
During the winter, we may have snow and you will need to scoop some walk areas. If snowfall is greater than 6 inches, you will have the number of someone to call to come and clear the driveway. In the past 26 years, we have needed to clear the driveway three times.
Thank you for viewing our house sitting opportunity. If you have any questions, please feel free to us.
