We need a house sitter

South East - Goodhue


We are located on a small farm in beautiful bluff country about 10 miles from Red Wing, Minnesota (and also about 10 miles from Lake City, MN) and the Mississippi River. Our farmhouse has been remodeled but we have retained as much of the old charm as possible. You will have use of our main floor guest bedroom with a king bed, chest of drawers, and closet space. Across from the bedroom is a large main floor laundry and bathroom with a walk in shower. There is also a bathroom upstairs with a deep tub. We have directv, satellite internet, and a landline as cell phone coverage is spotty due to the bluffs. We also have a baby grand if you are musically inclined. A long gravel driveway off an asphalt road leads to the house and there is garage space for your vehicle or plenty of parking area outside. . A small trout creek runs through the property and, along with bird feeders, bring in the local wildlife including song birds, wild turkeys and deer. Eagles, vultures, & hawks are often soaring above the bluffs. The farm is quiet and peaceful - and winter is a great time to be on the farm! The skies are often clear and the stars are amazing. There is opportunity for ice fishing, snow shoeing, and both downhill and cross country skiing. There are nearby state & city parks to explore. Lake Pepin is just a few minutes away offering winter sports like ice boat races. The river towns have lots going on with festivals, art shows, wineries, and local music. I am looking for a non-smoking person to stay on the property and take care of one or two dogs - a small munsterlander and a maltese poodle. A typical day for them involves going out for exercise in the morning, eating breakfast followed by indoor time or time in the outdoor pen if the weather is good. During the day, they are often outside with us while we work around the farm, but are also okay with being inside alone for up to 6 hours. They get another exercise time before their evening meal and let out again at before they are in for the night. If you have any questions, please send me an email. We are a very flexible on the dates. If you enjoy quiet and winter sports this is a great spot for you. If you haven't experienced a Minnesota winter, this is your opportunity! Snow plowing is all set but you would have to shovel the short sidewalk to the garage.
Thanks for considering us!

No rating We just finished a house/pet sit for Lucinda in Minnesota. We had a wonderful time with their two dogs, Daisy and Buddy. They were very well behaved and loving. Lots of fun! The 56 acre property was beautiful, the house very comfortable. The Spring weather brought lots of wildlife and growth alive. At night the stars were amazing, so quiet and relaxing.
