Enjoy Winter (and skiing) near beautiful Collingwood, Ontario
I am a retired teacher and my husband is a realtor. This is our first time looking for house sitters.
Our Home & Location
We live in the vibrant town of Thornbury, Ontario close to Georgian Bay and Collingwood. Our house is open concept, nicely renovated with large kitchen and fireplace; stylish and comfortable furnishings; big screen TV and wifi. Within walking distance is a lively downtown with restaurants, art galleries and other shops; as well as a grocery store, pharmacy and bank. We are also close to snowshoeing and cross country trails and a 15 minute drive to Blue Mountain for downhill skiing.
Responsibilities & Pets
Roxy (Wheaton Terrier) and Murphy (Australian Shepherd) get two walks a day and are used to having someone home most of the time. We also have an invisible fence system so they are fine to go outside on their own. Ideally we prefer they not be left for more than 3 or 4 hours at a time. They are very friendly and affectionate but energetic when walking so need a firm hand. There are no health issues -- they both get fed twice a day.
The snow on our front walk and sidewalk will need to be cleared, but otherwise the house is quite easy to care for.
