Spend the holiday in a gorgeous 1890 classic Maine Farmhouse with fully modern amenities including great WIFI! (I work remote in tech). Care for our 11-year-old Chihauhau- weenie mix who would like to be fed and have a short walk each day if there is not too much snow. She will take time to warm up to you but will be very low maintenance - mostly preferring to have a warm blankie and an occasional treat.
The house is situated in an adorable New England village with a small grocery and a few lovely restaurants. ~ 10 minutes away is a University town with a terrific grocery store (lots of food sensitivity options, vegan options etc minutes away is the state capital - Augusta.
Maine is called 'Vacationland' for a reason. We are close to winter recreation - including a major ski resort around 50 minutes away (Sugarloaf). Don't let snow worry you, the house is on a plowing contract meaning on snow days you sleep in and someone comes to plow the driveway.
