House sit : 1 month Highland Baltimore Maryland/ DC or
We are seeking a mature, responsible house/dog sitter for the month of June 2007. Our house is a 3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath home, located on 5 beautifully wooded acres about a half-hour from Baltimore, an hour from Washington, D.C. and about 45 minutes from Annapolis.
It's got a great back porch, with a hammock, overlooking the woods. It's a perfect home and location for someone who wants to explore the greater Washington-Baltimore metropolitan area. The subway to Washington DC is about 20 minutes away and, from there, it's about a half-hour non-rush hour ride to the Capitol.
There's an electric dog fence surrounding the property and our pet is free to roam, so he doesn't need walking or require any special care other than feeding, water and some occasional scratching and attention. There's also an above-ground pool on the yard that you would be welcome to use. It doesn't require much maintenance, other than occasionally putting in some chlorine and d.e.
We have a lawn cutting service which comes in periodically -- so there is no property maintenance required. It would be helpful if you had a car since the closest store or bus service is about a mile away. Although there are no bike paths, the area is very popular with bicyclists because of the semi-rural nature of the community and the scenic rolling hills.
