About

We are looking for a family or individual(s) who will enjoy our home while we are away on sabbatical. We want you to feel at home and will help you adjust to the area as well as to the home. We hope to provide you and yours with a wonderful place to dwell during your stay or start in Lexington. Our things will remain in the home, but we will ensure they are either available for your use (furniture, kitchenware, etc.), or out of your way. We have set the rental amount much lower than a furnished house in this neighborhood might command, because of the unique situation of house-sitting along with enjoying the home. We look forward to hearing from you!

House Sitting

I may need help while I am away

I may need help with mail and deliveries

We will need you to forward some mail now and then, using postage-paid envelopes we will leave behind.

I may need help with plants or garden

We have a lot of house plants, including potted trees that need to come inside in the winter. If you are up for this, great! If not, we can find another temporary home for them during the year. There is a garden plot, and its use is optional.

Comments: You'll need to ensure that the front lawn is mowed. A contractor is in place to mow, and you can keep that going or do it yourself. The whole place is $40 per mow, and the front only is $20. We will pay for leaf removal in the fall.
