In 2016 we began house-sitting at Heartwell Institute in Worcester, while we commuted 90-minutes each way to our business in Marblehead, MA. Bob and Zayda, the wonderful owners of the property called us the House Masters. Our responsibilities were to take care of the place, taking in the mail, watering plants, liaising with the owners, booking and taking care of airbnb guests (one of our favorite aspects of this assignment). We also did some garden clean-up.
