Sunny, spacious home on 6+ acres with valley/mountain views, fireplace, and hot tub.  Access to outdoor activities of the Mountain West- hiking, road biking, mountain biking, cross country skiing (free groomed trails), downhill skiing, backcountry skiing, snowshoeing, fly fishing, horseback riding, wildlife viewing, etc.  Also, close (5 miles/~5min) to college town with activities and an active historic western downtown.


~2300 ft2with tall ceilings and big windows, all the regular appliances (kitchen with fridge/freezer, dishwasher, double ovens, 5- burner stove; utility room with sink, washer and dryer), high speed internet, geothermal heating and cooling, open floorplan, 3 bedrooms +snug/media room/study (no TV, but a projector and screen with internet for streaming), 2.5 bathrooms, deck (with hot tub) overlooking valley/Snowy Mountains.  Most of 6+ acres are wild/no-maintenance and used by wildlife- antelope, deer, prairie dogs, rabbits, birds and coyotes

We are looking for a non-smoking house, plant and potentially dog sitter (waiting to hear from my brother on dog fostering).  We will need general house up-keep, mail pick-up, plant watering and if our dog is present, dog care. 


We have lots of windows filled with plants that need weekly watering.  Most of our outdoor plants are on driplines or sprinklers that just need to be turned on when needed.  We have a raised veggie garden that will not be planted, but available if you want to give it a go (gardening club in town is great for advice and starts, library has free seeds).

DOG (possible)

Our dog is a middle-aged/older guy who used to be a real athlete.  Now he loves being a homebody and relaxing with his humans.  He likes walks, hikes and runs (as long as they aren’t more than 8 miles) but doesn’t require them daily.  (We have a fenced portion of our yard attached to the house that he goes out into when needed).   He loves people but fears dogs at first sight, which can manifest as dog aggression.  (Our short-term dog sitter has 2 dogs, but it took patience to get them introduced and used to each other.)  His primary needs are food and water 2x/day, being let out into the fenced yard (his bathroom), along with love and companionship.

Sit Dates Dec-18-21 - Aug-20-22 Sitter DeidreM, Member Since Oct-27-14

We had such a wonderful time on our long term house and pet sit in Laramie, WY.

Bridget and Jason were incredibly welcoming.  We immediately felt at ease and welcome in their beautiful home. They had cleared out a large amount of space for us in the closet and bathroom - a thoughtful touch that is appreciated. They also prepared a great guide on house and pet needs as well as recommendations on fun things to do in the area. We were able to communicate with them easily and even though they were on the other side of the world they were super responsive to any questions or concerns we had.

Our favorite part of the sit, by far, was Arlo! He is a sweetheart, a lovebug, and every other adorable adjective you can think of. We enjoyed our daily walks/hikes with him followed by lots of love being lavished (both directions). He loves his humans so much - not sure he realizes he's not one ;). So hard to say good bye but seeing him reunited with the people that love him even more than us was a treat.

Laramie is a fun little college town and the surrounding area is an outdoor dream. Hiking, biking, snow skiing, snowmobiling, fishing, whatever your interest it's nearby. 

We already miss our daily sunset viewing from the back deck with Arlo by our side. We truly enjoyed getting to experience this part of the world and would highly recommend to other sitters (of course only if we're not avaiable for a repeat visit)!
