Winter getaway with an easygoing dog, rural setting, 10 miles to Camden Maine — Archived

Home Owner in Hope

Hello! So, we are looking for someone to care for our easygoing dog, Duffel. He is 8 years old, relaxed and doesn't need much. We are trying to plan a getaway, for approximately 3 weeks in March, perhaps 3/5/17 to 4/1/17, dates are flexible. Aside from Duffel, we need someone to look in on Grandpa daily. He is next door, independent, does not need anything, except to know that someone is around. A housekeeper will be taking care of his food and company, our house sitter would just be back up for him in case of emergency. We also have a neighbor who could assist with any minor household situations. We built our home in 2008, it is passive and active solar, with lots of thermal mass. The home has radiant heat in the floor and a woodstove and gas fireplace for coziness. It is a 3 bedroom home, with jacuzzi tub, full kitchen, big screen monitor that is attached to the internet, sorry no cable or tv. We have lots of books and games, a workshop, studio and office/music room. Plenty of things to occupy oneself with. Outside we have a hot tub and access to Alford lake, which will likely be frozen during our absence. You cannot walk to anything from here easily, the snow precludes much hiking right now. Duffel would enjoy a daily walk down to the lake which is just a couple blocks and is plowed. A car will be available for your use, shared with grandpa. If there is a large snowfall, we ask that our housesitter would shovel a path to next door and the mailbox. The road and drive will be plowed by someone else. We are surrounded by woods, but on main roadway, 5 miles to Union, 10 miles to Camden. If you like to Ski, the Camden snowbowl is close, the only ski slopes in the east where you can see the ocean while you ski! Please send me an email, we can tell you more, we love to share our home!
