Looking for responsible, mature, handy, clean, non-smokers, who enjoy nature and are not afraid to be far away from people. Close to Blue Ridge Parkway, James River and the Appalachian Trail, our house is a spacious, air-conditioned, eclectic 3-bedroom home on 50 acres of forest surrounded by other undeveloped, rural properties; House compound has area for vegetable garden should you want to grow summer veggies. We are centrally isolated between Lynchburg, Lexington, and Charlottesville. This place is a magical piece of the planet. We prefer a couple but will consider single applicants. Exact start and end dates somewhat flexible from posted dates. We prefer those who can stay the entire time but will consider shorter stays (at least 6 weeks in duration). Must be willing to work outdoors a few hours a week to manage gardens and care for 4 friendly goats and an outdoor cat. Experience with plants a must; the goats are easy. Sorry, we cannot accept carers who want to bring pets or children.
