House Sitter in Grand Marais

Starting in 2018 during Jan. - April we are looking for somewhere relatively warm in CA or NM/AZ. Our cabin near Grand Marais MN has been a VRBO rental for years (A frame on the River) but we will winter in our new condo in town proper. Winters are long and cold and so we are hunting for somewhere to escape! We lived for 25 years in Monterey CA where Anne was a Pastor in the UCC. She now does consulting. I owned my own graphic design service and also play pro keyboards with jazz groups. We are very people-oriented, engaged in our community, but also love to travel. We have spent time in Bali, Taiwan,(where our son taught English for 3 years) Nicaragua (where our daughter served in the PC). We lived a number of places on the E. Coast incl. DC when Anne was working there, near her family. I serve on the board of the Grand Marais Music Collaborative, a non-profit group promoting instruction and classes for music creation and fun outside the school system. Grand Marais, for it's small size has a tremendous amount of activities to offer. You might do a search on our little hamlet just for your own interest! Anne and I are recently retired here and are trying to figure that out! How the canoe will fit on top of our Honda CRV, how you cook (we are foodies) on an electric stove, and then run up to the cabin and wash sheets for our next renters!

I have know them for over 20 years as a couple. Anne is a compassionate being full of love and care. She is a minister. Chris has been my friend for over 40 years, when we both lived on Lake Superior. Chris and Anne have raised a daughter Marcella who is going to Yale Divinity School to become a minister, and their son Nick has taught English in Taiwan and working now in Washington DC. Chris is a fabulous piano player and a sincere friend

Christopher and Anne Gillis Recommendation I have been firends with Chris and Anne for a number of years. In addition to a long term friendship, we have worked together developing our individual properties/homes for short term rentals in the Grand Marais, Minnesota area. Chris and Anne are familiar, first hand, with the need for care, up keep and maintenance needed to prepare and have a property available for a rental business. They would surely respect your needs as a house sitter without question. Chris and I have worked together professionally designing and fabricating signs for several years. I enjoy working with Chris and greatly appreciate his attention to detail and quality workmanship. My time with Anne reflects on her talents in her field ministry as well as our friendship. I have attended her services & traveled with both Chris and Anne in Chiapas, Mexico on a church related trip. Anne in one of the most caring, insightful and thoughtful people I know. They are welcome in my home any time! I’m sure you will find them welcome in your home as well. I recommend them without reservation. Most sincerely, David Steckelberg P.O. box 1199 Grand Marais, MN 55604
