comfortable home close to beautiful countryside with lakes and mountains but also close to city
we travel quite a bit but hate to leave our 2 cats alone. It's not so hard to find someone to feed them but they need more human contact like someone living here. We have a nice big house and garden, in a quiet, treed residential area. Our cats are easy to look after. They are 3 years old, love going out , don't like rain or winter and are never allowed out overnight.
Our Home & Location
Lennoxville is a small mostly English community of about 4000, which is about a 2 minutes drive one way from the country and 5 minutes the other way from downtown Sherbrooke which is a city with the advantages of urban life: restaurants, parks and a fairly large university. There is a small English university here which has a new sports centre.
For outdoor enthusiasts there is a golf course with a bike path through it one one side and another bike path going south along the river towards a beautiful community on a lake about 25 minutes away. You don't absolutely need a car, there are buses going between Lennoxville and all over Sherbrooke. Getting around the countryside is limited though without a car. In the winter we are no more than 35 minutes drive from a major ski centre and a lot closer to a smaller one. There are at least 3 other downhill ski centres and many places nearby for cross country skiing including the local golf course.
Responsibilities & Pets
Looking after house and cats. The cats go out in the day usually not more than 2 hours at a time and never at night.
George has had digestive problems but seems perfectly fine since we put him on a special food. To make it simple both cats get the same food....
The house is easy to look after. This is a safe and peaceful neighbourhood. Most neighbours are French so it helps to speak a little French although Lennoxville has an English university and private school. + More info
