We are looking for a house and pet sitter to take care of our dog and our 2 bedroom 2 bath log home on the coast of Maine. We are a 30 min drive to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, and a 30 min drive to Schoodic Penninsula. Our tidal shorefront is wintering grounds for buffleheads, eiders, loons and many other shorebirds.
Our dog is a 11 going on 12 year old dog who will bark at you initially, but once you have won him over, he is your best friend. He is arthritic and needs medication which he takes with his food. He is fed 2x a day and walked once or twice a day. The rest of the time he can be let out on his own, he won't wander.
Our home is not a rustic cabin, it is a hand built log home with full kitchen, TV room, living and dining rooms 2 bedrooms with skylights and 2 bathrooms, and of course internet. The house is very cozy in the winter with a wood stove in the basement, a propane stove in the living room and heat pumps downstairs and up.
It gets dark early during the winter, and it can be bitterly cold, but it is always beautiful If you are interested in birding, our place won't disappoint.
