Come to Westcliffe, Colorado to enjoy the autumn colors in our log home on 70 acres. Your responsibilities will be to care for our 12 year old Border Collie mix and 3 barn kitties. Hunter, the dog, goes for a 15 minute walk each day. The barn kitties live in the barn and need water and food refilled and litter boxes emptied every other day. You'll need to fill bird feeders and bird baths and water some outside plants. We no longer have livestock, but our neighbors use our pastures for their Longhorns.
The main floor consists of a living room, the kitchen and dining area, a laundry room, a full bath and the guest bedroom. The bedroom has a queen bed and a dresser and closet for your use. There is WiFi.
The TV room is downstairs. We have Dish Network with access to Netflix and Prime if you have accounts You can walk outside from the TV room to a covered patio.
The house has a deck on two sides as well as a sunroom attached to the barn for those cool or windy days. All have a view of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, which have many hiking trails.
