Couple Looking for Winter Rental

My husband and I are looking for a place to rent for Winter. We are flexible with any sort or place/size as long as it is accessible for Winter driving. We are working towards building a home but need a place to stay in the interim. Both of us already live in the area and work year-round professional jobs on the north shore. We are both non-smokers, very clean and organized, and respectful. We are willing to help out with general maintainence/upkeep and have the tools available. Only have one vehicle in terms of parking need. We also have two small dogs - they are house trained, quiet, and prefer to lay around and nap while inside. We have excellent rental references for us and our pets that we can provide. Thanks for your consideration.
