Babbs Mountain Berries
Retired couple looking for occasional house-sitters to look after our dog, two indoor cats, and four chickens. Duration from two days to two weeks.
Our Home & Location
Mountainside rural property with Shenandoah Valley view, seasonal vegetable garden (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, tomatoes, and an assortment of herbs) and four chickens (3-4 fresh eggs daily) near Apple Pie Ridge northwest of historic Winchester, Virginia. Includes modern kitchen with gas stove, 6/2mbps WiFi, and DISH satellite TV. This is Civil War country with several major battlefield sites less than 1 hour away. Shenandoah National Park, Harpers Ferry, and the C&O Canal are also close by.
Responsibilities & Pets
Feed and exercise our dog Chip -- an energetic 5-year-old medium-size black lab-brindle mix -- a couple of times a day in our large fenced-in yard. Give our two 8-year-old cats Ashes and Whiskers a hug, feed them, and tend to their litter box. Let our four chickens out of their coop for a bit of supervised free-ranging once or twice a day and enjoy fresh eggs for breakfast!
