Want to stay in an artist's converted church in a quaint village near the historic Erie Canal? I have a friendly, affectionate cat who spends much of his time outside but enjoys human companionship when he comes home. He needs feeding once or twice a day, and doesn't require a litter box.

During the summer: The courtyard garden is filled with plants and veggies and has spots to enjoy sun and shade for dining or relaxing. A fire pit and hot tub make it a real vacation spot. Watering the potted plants is a daily activity which takes about 10 minutes if there's no rain in the forecast. There are also two small patches of grass that would need mowing once in two weeks.

During the winter: just feeding and petting the cat are required.

Winter Activities: snow shoeing, hiking, xcountry skiing & local downhill skiing. Hot tub in backyard.

The house is an old church and has high ceilings and fans that keep it cool but we don't have AC. We are very close to many nature preserves with waterfalls, swimming holes and the beautiful Finger Lakes. The historic village of Fayetteville is quiet and there are several restaurants and coffee shops in walking distance. Easy biking to nearby Erie Canal bike path and Green Lakes State Park. Very nice neighbors.

Holly and her sons were welcoming and very flexible in terms of allowing me to come a few days early. And, Wonder, the cat, was not your typical cat. He was incredibly friendly and social.

I had a very peaceful stay in their 200 year old was a great 1st housesit experience for me. 

“ Lovely house and cat ”

The house is a lovely renovated chuch in the heart of Fayetteville, filled with artwork and close to so many things to do in upstate New York. Wonder the cat was very pleasant and easy to take care of. A beautiful back garden made for relaxing evenings.
