Peaceful 22 acres with a 3500 sq foot home.

There are 8 acres of pasture which needs to be mowed with tractor seasonally. There are 3 acres that make up our yard which needs to be mowed witha zero turn (steering wheel style) lawnmower every 10 days in the late spring to early fall.  There are also 14 acres of trails which will need to be mowed with tractor seasonally. 
We have our 7 year old rescue terrier mix named Daisy (she is very protective of property which can be a challenge with package delivery services or visitors). She loves to go for walks on property and in certain circumstances be let off leash. She is our biggest challenge in finding a sitter as she needs someone who is experienced with rescue animals and is very patient. If you are the right fit she will be your best friend and make you laugh till you cry but she may try to bite your ankles first.  
Our 15 year old calico cat is the queen of our property. She and the dog have a truce which we don't trust will last even though they have been together 6 years.  Ziggy is very friendly and considers everyone family. 

There are also a few houseplants that would want to be watered. 
Home is located just 10 min from the small town of Bedford, Virginia in the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.  We have four mild seasons. The town is home to the D-Day Memorial  and is just 20 minutes to the Peaks of Otter and the Appalachian trail.  Smith Mountain Lake is just a 20 min drive. 

Internet is slow.  We use Verizon and US cellular for consistant coverage.
