We are looking for Housesitters to watch our house in an inholding in the tall ponderosa pine trees in the San Juan national forest. We have a mostly completed ( lots of trim work that we are still working on) simple but luxury log home. We have 4 Paso Fino horses that need feeding, two dogs ( very sweet Italian Mastiff and red heeler) that need twice daily feeding, and a daily short walk in the forest., a bengal cat that has his own loft that needs daily littlerbox cleanings, and a bunch of chickens that need their eggs collected daily and their water outside filled on occasion. About 1/2 hour per day total. We also have two alpacas that share the chicken water and are free fed. September is a wonderful time in the forest as the aspen leaves start to change. The nights are cool ( 45 ish F. ) The nearest neighbor is 4 miles away by car. The nearest highway is 10 miles along a dirt county road. We are “near” the SanJuan Skyway, Mesa Verde,Telluride, Durango. Stillness and quiet, Mountain biking,hiking, motorcycle riding, rafting and sightseeing are popular pastimes. The Grand Canyon and Zion national park are about 5 hours away. We have a rustic room in a barn, with kitchen and shower and bath, that we lived in for the last 8 years while building our house by hand, that you could stay in for free for up to two weeks longer if you wanted to explore the area further.
