Seeking a house and pet sitter from August 26 through October 9 in the rolling hills of southwestern Wisconsin e and unwind beneath the stars in our quiet, peaceful valley, and enjoy the serenity of prairies, woods, and picturesque farmland. Located on a world class trout stream and 42 acres of woods and grasslands, outside of Gays Mills, WI.

If you're an angler, this is a wonderful opportunity to fly fish the Driftless! (s:// Our homestead is organic, and any ripening garden produce is yours for the picking while we are away.

We are looking for someone to provide gentle, loving care for two dogs, a few outdoor barn cats, our laying hens, quail, and a two angora rabbits. 

Chores are simple and straightforward. Morning: feeding and watering cats, quail, and rabbits; letting out, feeding and watering chickens; gathering eggs; and saying goodmorning to the dogs!

Afternoon: locking up the chickens, feeding dogs, and throwing a ball for the younger dog in the yard, or taking him on a walk.

Once each week the rabbits require a gentle brushing and the manure scooped from their hutch. 

Our home is a small, older farmhouse that we are slowly remodeling. It isn't magazine cover material, but it's clean, well loved, and well cared for. Our house has WIFI, a wood stove, central air conditioning, and forced air heat. Nearby there is wonderful kayaking, canoing, hiking, and biking. We are twenty-five minutes to the sweet little town of Viroqua, WI, two hours from Madison, WI and three and a half from Minneapolis or Milwaukee.
