General description

  • Main home
Our home is a 2-bedroom, 1.5 bath, 1300 sq. ft. town home. Good for a single person or a couple who will use the guest room on the second floor for their stay. Television includes Netflix and Internet channels such as YouTube; so sorry, we don't subscribe to cable channels or premium channels. Local broadcast stations (ABC, CBS, NBC) are available to watch, as well. Town home is located at the northern edge of Mount Joy, a walkable small town in famous Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA -- home of the Pennsylvania Dutch (Amish Country). We are a short drive to Hershey, Lancaster, Gettysburg and Harrisburg (the state capital). Lancaster County is in the mid-Atlantic region, so cities like New York, Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia and the beaches of Delaware and New Jersey are all accessible with only a few hours' travel. Grocery store, pharmacy, and other retails stores 1/4 mile from home.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • 2 cats
Non-smoker, no vaping or cigars, and non-partier house sitter sought to take care of our home and pets as if it is their own. It's a quiet community with many older residents. Responsibilities include: Daily care to our cats Paige and Loki includes spending time with them days and evenings, cleaning litter boxes daily, with a total clean-out of each box (throw out old litter, wash out box, dry, refill with clean litter) every 4 weeks. Feed/water them twice a day. Clean and dry their water and food bowls daily before refilling. Play with them, encourage them to get to know you. House should be kept reasonably clean, vacuumed, and dusted. Clean the bathrooms and kitchen weekly. You do no yard work (except minor weeding along front walk during warm weather) and because of our HOA, there's no exterior house maintenance or mowing for you. Frequent phone updates with home owner.

Town home is located at the northern edge of Mount Joy, a walkable small town in famous Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA -- home of the Pennsylvania Dutch (Amish Country). We are a short drive to Hershey, Lancaster, Gettysburg and Harrisburg (the state capital). Lancaster County is in the mid-Atlantic region, so cities like New York, Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia and the beaches of Delaware and New Jersey are all accessible with only a few hours' travel. You can even hop a train to those destinations by walking or driving down to the new Amtrak station in town (only one mile away, with free parking). Also, we are connected to the state's and nation's rail trails, so if you're into hiking, kayaking, and bicycle riding (road cycling as well as off-road), you'll enjoy Lancaster County for that reason. Several colleges and universities in the area, as is a thriving downtown Lancaster art and music scene that must be experienced to be believed. This area is one of the most-desirable places to vacation in Pennsylvania. Visit https://www.discoverlancaster.com and https://visitlancastercity.com for more info about what to do and see.
