We are early-retired, moving to New Hampshire from Texas in 2012. We love our beautiful 1830's farmhouse, and have lived here since 2015. The previous homeowners brought the house into the 20th Century, and we are doing our best to make improvements so that it will last at least another 200 years. Our neighbor, who ran a kennel, is retiring, so we are looking for care for our pets in our home. Must be a non-smoker as no smoking is allowed anywhere on our property. We have a lovely apartment available for someone who would enjoy a retreat in the country, including taking care of our sweet pets.
Our Home & Location
The sitter will have use of a one bedroom, one bath apartment with full kitchen located above our garage. It has a beautiful view of our backyard and the hills down toward the Cold River and Gates Mountain across the way. We are located on a quiet dirt road, perfect for long walks. We are about 45 minutes north of Keene, NH; 20'ish minutes from Walpole, NH; 20'ish minutes from Charlestown, NH. There is a quaint village store less than ½ mile away where you can get a generous breakfast and lunch for little money, and simple goods. There is a small grocery store in Alstead, NH, about 15 minutes away; Walpole Grocery and Shaws in Walpole; Hannafords and Monadnock Co-Op in Keene.
Our internet is "high-speed" but that's all relative to what you are used to. If you work from home and require a true high-speed connection, our internet is not adequate. However, it works fine for streaming movies and perusing the internet....
The apartment has a Roku TV for streaming movies and programs. There is one king bed. A washer and dryer available for use in the garage basement. + More info
