From: Jul 17,22  
To:      Aug 25,22
Days:  40, Short Medium Term will consider sitters for shorter stay

ATTENTION: our planned housesitters had to cancel and we are now looking for couples willing to stay at least two weeks of the five weeks listed (July 17-aug 25). Please reach out if you are interested. Thank you. Here's are usual listing:

Looking for a couple of 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 rural properties.

Fenced 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 because of our remote location, 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 for experienced housesitters.

Must be willing to work outdoors a few hours a week to manage gardens. Experience with gardening a must; there are four goats and an outdoor cat to feed daily.  Sorry, we cannot accept carers with pets or children. There is no TV here and you'll need cell service from Verizon for emergencies (when the power goes out, the wifi goes as well, and very few carriers get service here other than Verizon).
