Pet sitting & House sitting job in South East
South East - Goodhue
We are located on a small farm in beautiful bluff country about 10 miles from the town of 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 the as much of the old charm as possible. You will be staying in the main floor guest bedroom with a king bed, chest of drawers, good lighting and ample closet space. Across from the bedroom is a large tiled main floor laundry and bathroom with a walk in shower. We have directv, satellite internet, and a landline as cell phone coverage is spotty due to the bluffs. Occasionally weather can interrupt reception. A long gravel driveway off an asphalt road leads to the house and there can be garage space or plenty of outside parking . 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 bluff. The farm is quiet and peaceful. Although bugs can be a challenge, it just depends upon the weather and season. Nearby there are opportunities for swimming, fishing, boating, biking and hiking. I am looking for a non-smoking person to stay on the property and take care of two dogs - a small munsterlander and a maltese poodle. A typical day for them starts with an outing for exercise in the morning followed by their breakfast. 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 8 hours, leaving you time to do your thing. They get another exercise time in the afternoon and/or before their evening meal. Their last time out is quick and right before they are done for the night. If you enjoy peace and quiet and the outdoors and are not to reliant upon technology this is a great spot for you. Mowing is optional, but keeping up our small gardens and filling the bird feeders and water fountain would be greatly appreciated. There currently are no other animals to care for but that could change by October (chickens and/or a horse). Start and ending dates are a bit flexible. Thanks for reading my ad!
