About Lindsay

I am a stay at home kiddies, kitties and doggies mom. I have a long history with animals and would love to give your special pet a pampered and relaxing experience while you are away.
I have three kittens (Cali, Willow, and Ana) and two dogs (Marley and Sophie). They all get along great with other animals and will be great playmates for your pets. I have two children Madison (5) and Ryan (2); they both have developed the same level of love and caring for animals that my husband and I have at an early age.
We live on a large piece of property off of Evergreen Mills Road. We are bordered by a large 60 acre farm and are conveniently located within walking distance to Ever Green Mills county park. We have a large fenced in area; which provide for endless hours of unleashed fun. Needless to say a true dog vacation of running, playing, and exploring.
You can rest easy knowing that your dog is enjoying him or herself while in my care. During your pet's stay we will follow this basic schedule; this can be modified to better fit your dog, but serves as a basis.

-Playtime throughout the day (inside and out)
-Plenty of treats and pampering
- Any other special needs your dog may have; including medications and special feedings will be taken care of at your request
- Please feel free to bring any special toys, bedding, and treats that will make your dog feel more comfortable while on their vacation
-I will provide pictures and updates on your dogs vacation throughout their stay with me

I felt totally comfortable having my dog stay with Lindsay. She provides lots of room to run and sends photos and updates each evening! Thanks for everything Lindsay!
Lindsay made it very easy and was accommodating. Kuzco came back tired from all of the playing he did. We will be repeat customers!
Our dogs love to go to sleep away camp at Evergreen Retreat. They always have a great time and we know they are in good hands with Lindsay!
This is my first time using dogvacay and Lindsay was exceptional. I have a 9mo pup and a 10 year old dog. She managed both beautifully. Dogs came home happy and exhausted. We will absolutely be returning!
Lindsay is Awesome!! I know my Lab Ranger is in great care when I drop him off with Lindsay. I appreciate how easy it has been to work with Lindsay as well. Lindsay has all the bases covered and seeing Ranger's tail wag as we get to her place lets me know how good a time Ranger has when in her care.
Another great vacay with Lindsay and her family! Booking their next stay right now!
We had never sent our dog to stay with anyone before. He is quite attached to his owners, but Lindsay made him feel like one of the family. Also there was plenty of room for the dogs to run and play together.
Lindsay was amazing!!! This was Abby's 1st time in doggie daycare. Lindsay kept us updated with photos during the day. Abby had so much fun!! We will definitely have Lindsay watch Abby again.
Lindsay's home is a great home away from home for my furry guy. She sends pictures throughout the day and he is always playing with friends or running in the yard! If you need a sitter, you should definitely consider Lindsay.
Dogs LOVED their vacation with Lindsay
We absolutely loved our experience with Lindsay. We immediately felt at ease the moment we arrived at the house. We received several pictures throughout our dogs stay. When we picked our pup up although he was excited to see us, he wanted to stay and play. Overall great experience!
We used Lindsay for the first time and our dogs loved it. We'll be back!
Lindsay and her family are the best hosts! My 4 month old puppy fit right in! I was so happy she took the time to slowly introduce her to the other dogs in her care. In no time they were having a ball! Great people, great property, great care! Daisy's going back next week for sure!
Winston is a rescue and is very anxious about being left with strangers. He was visibly anxious at drop off but was completely relaxed and happy at pickup. Lindsay did a great job of acclimating him to the environment and introducing him slowly to the other dogs. He had a wonderful time running and playing and napped immediately in the car :). I'm relieved we have found such a great environment to leave him when we need to!
We will always use Lindsay and Evergreen retreat for Camel. Camel is a shelter dog and is shy around new people, especially adults. He immediately took to Lindsay which is something we've never seen. She provided pictures for us every evening. When we picked him up, he was healthy and happy. My favorite thing about Evergreen Retreat is the big back yard with lots of room for Camel to explore and run. I highly recommend Lindsay and Evergreen retreat. This will be Camels 2nd home if we have to board him. Thank you Lindsay for helping make our vacation better!!!! If I could give 6 stars I would!
We are very grateful for the excellent care Lindsay gave our dog.
Lindsay and her family were great with our puppy who stayed with them for 10 days. I loved the daily pictures of Duke having a great time and also the huge backyard for him to run around in. We will definitely book with her again for any future needs.
We had a great experience with Lindsay. Our pup was well taken care of and happy when we picked her up too. I recommended her to coworkers!
Outstanding, Lindsay has a real heart for dogs and it shows! My dog was wonderfully cared for!
Thank you Lindsay for taking such great care of coco. We loved getting all the pictures every day! Overall a great experience!!
This was the first time that we left Jasmine (8 month old Husky mix) with Lindsay while we went on vacation. I was so impressed with the daily updates and pictures that reassured us that Jasmine has having a great time with her new friends. I would definitely contact Lindsay again if we need to find a sitter for Jasmine. Thank you !
Our dog may actually like being at Lindsay's more than being at our own house. That's how much TLC she and her family provide to him. Lindsay is the absolute best!
Gretel loves all the room to run at Evergreen Retreat!
Lindsay was awesome. Our puppy almost didn't want to come home. We got regular updates and pictures. Made us feel very at ease!
I did not hesitate to book a return trip for my dogs! Again, a terrific experience for them and peace of mind for me. We will book again soon.
Lindsay and her family are wonderful to work with. Their big wide open backyard is perfect for my two labs. The dogs are welcomed and treated as if they are members of Lindsay's family.
Lindsay was absolutely AMAZING! It was our first time leaving our dogs with anyone beside family and she did a wonderful job! Our dogs came home exhausted from playing so much!! She has the perfect setup where she slowly introduces our dogs to the others at her house. She also has plenty of room for the dogs to run and play. We would definitely recommend her to anyone!
Great experience for all! Thanks, Lindsay!
Awesome, as always. I don't know what we would do without Lindsay. Ty is happier here than at home!
Lindsay is great!!! Our dog loves the Evergreen Retreat! It's a vacation for our dog!
Charlie had a blast!!!
This is the second time that we have used Lindsay for our two dogs. And again, they were so well treated and cared for that we didn't have a care in the world as we traveled. She is a caring person who treats our dogs like her own. When they come home, they are worn out, but would happily return. And the next time we go somewhere, we will once again be reaching out to Lindsay. A wonderful visit.
My dog has stayed with Lindsey several times and has his own "vacation" while we are away. He jumps out of the car when it's time to go to her house and has tons of fun running with the other pups. I love the daily pics, too.
Lindsay is fantastic. She always sends us photos when we are gone. Very easy to work with when arranging drop off and pick up. Summer (our dog) loves going to her house. Mary
We couldn't have asked for a more caring home for our two beloved pups while we were away. Lindsay sent emails and photos daily, taking time to update us on their welfare and happiness. It was clear to us that her boarders are very much a priority. We highly recommend!!
Thank you Lindsay for always taking the stress out of leaving Caroline! She comes home happy, well exercised and healthy. I'm pretty sure she loves it at your place, but glad she still loves us too! It's almost time for another DogVacay!
We boarded our Westie with Lindsay and she had a great time in the fenced back yard playing with the other dogs. The evening pictures were most reassuring that our pup was happy and having a great time. We're going to board again with Lindsay.
Highly recommended.
Lindsay and the Evergreen Retreat was fantastic! Our puppy Thor had a vacation too! Well taken care of and Lindsay provided updates and photos every day! Highly recommend!!!
Dozer had a great time staying with Lindsay and her family and the other dog guests. She has a huge backyard that the dogs can run freely in. She sent multiple photos every evenin,g which were very nice. We will definitely return in the future !
Lindsay was amazing! Raven had so much fun ??!
Jack and Lola had another great Vacay with Lindsay and her family. I never worry about them when they are there. I know they are getting plenty of love and exercise! They come home tails wagging and exhausted! I always appreciate the updates and pictures to see how they are doing!
Thanks Lindsay!
Our dog never had a better time away from us. Everything, from the meet and greet with Lindsay until we picked our dog up after returning from vacation, was great. Riley had a wonderful time staying with Lindsay, and he loved going back to see her again. There's plenty of room at her place for our dog to run, and you could tell from the pictures that Lindsay sent to us every night that he had a good time playing with the other dogs. We highly recommend Lindsay as a host!
Jack and Lola had a great time. They walked right in and got settled like they were in their own house! It made me a little sad, but it was a great sign to me that they are super comfortable there! Lindsay and her family give them lots of love and attention. They are looking forward to their next vacation at Lindsay's!
Lindsay is great! She provides a loving environment for our dog and makes her feel at home. She is flexible and always available when we need her! I highly recommend her for anyone who wants somewhere where their pet with be loved and taken good care of!
We had the most amazing time away from home, and it was all due to the wonderful care that Lindsay took of Patsy and Kelby. The daily updates provided such great peace of mind, and we were 100% sure that 'the girls' were having time of their life.

Lindsay was welcoming, and went out her wy to make us feel that Patsy and Kelby would be in good care. Her own dogs are welcoming too, and seemed to know that their role was to make the newbies feel at home.

We have a few more trips planned this year, and I guarantee that we will be seeking Lindsay again! What an amazing service and what a great place to stay! Thank you a million times!
Puck looks so happy in the pictures she sent. Also he is obviously happy to see Lindsay when he is dropped off. Lindsay is easygoing and the best!
Lindsey is the sweetest, and you can see how much she loves dogs. My dogs get so excited to go over to her house, and they sleep the whole next day because they played so much! I would recommend her to ANYONE. She is so great with them, and makes sure they are well taken care of. We will be using her lots!
Kobe had an excellent time as always! We loved getting all the pictures each evening. Kobe looked so happy. Now that she is home she is exhausted!
Olive once again had an awesome time! We always know that Olive will be taken care and loved on like she was one of their own pups. She plays so hard, and has so much fun, and she's always exhausted when she comes home. Lindsay is the best!
Kobe had such a great time with Lindsay and her family! We had a few playdates prior to the overnight and Kobe had a blast every time! Kobe is looking forward to her next vacay which will be almost a week long. I know that she will be well taken care of and loved with Lindsay and her family!
Zeke had a fantastic time playing with Lindsay's dogs and the other house guests! We received pictures everyday and he obviousły was well cared for and happy! Zeke can't wait to visit again!
Lindsay is fantastic. Our dogs had an amazing time at Evergreen Retreat and Lindsay and her family treated them as if they were their own pets. She sent us updates every night so I know they were doing great. My Jack loved running with the big dogs and my Bulldog enjoyed lots of napping and belly rubs. They almost didn't want to come home and they were exhausted from all of the fun. We know they were in great hands. We will definitely be back to Evergreen Retreat for Lindsay & her family to watch over my first loves! I'd love to take them with me everywhere I go, but since I can't, this is the next best thing. No kennel or cage....they were so happy and well cared for.
Thank you Lindsay for taking such great care of Caroline! She comes home happy and calm, and we enjoy our time away so much more knowing she is so well cared for. I'm wondering if she dreams of chickens now.... :)
My dog was attacked by another dog during this visit, requiring emergency veterinary care. Obviously, this could happen in any environment with unfamiliar dogs (I am not sure if it was the owner's dog or another boarder-I was not told). I appreciate that DogVacay paid for medical expenses above and beyond the $250 deductible. I also appreciated that Lindsay's husband was willing to drive my dog to the vet, where my brother met him to assume "parent watch" in the emergency hospital. My dog has always had such a good time at this home. Unfortunately, I may be a bit nervous about using a similar service in the future (which has nothing at all to do with the family or the quality of care my dog received).
I was in a bind, and Lindsay and her family came through at that last minute (even though she was scheduled to give birth - and did! - the same week. I would recommend without hesitation. Wonderful family and my greyhound always goes with excitement :-)
Lindsay and her husband were so great! I was running late and they were all ready for Wynn when I got there and I immediately felt comfortable leaving him. They have a great fenced in backyard that Wynn loved to play in and I loved getting pictures later of the fun time he had. He slept hard after a full day of fun!
My dogs were thrilled to stay with Lindsay and her family. They were very accommodating. It is clear they have a love of animals. Their fenced in backyard is a dogs dream -- lots of room to romp and run. My dogs returned home very happy and extremely exhausted. We will most definitely be repeat customers.
Olive had SO much fun at Lindsay's house! My husband and I are new to the area and we were gone out of the country for 10 days. We met with Lindsay (for our meet and greet) and immediately felt at ease with her, and knew that Olive would be well loved and cared for. She sent pictures every night we were away so that we were able to see all the fun that Olive was having! We never once worried about her while we were gone, and are so grateful for Lindsay taking care of Olive. We will definitely be using Lindsay again in the future. She's the best!
As always Archie loves staying at Lindsays! Lots of room to play and lots of human and dog attention.
Zeke had a great time with Lindsay. He slept much of his first day home, he was so exhausted from playing with his new friends! Zeke was well cared for and Lindsay sent us a daily update. It was a great experience all around!
Brisco had a great time with Lindsay! He came home exhausted from playing. She has a perfect set up for taking care of dogs. Plenty of space to play out back and comfy and clean inside. The photos she sent of Brisco playing and resting with the others dogs were great.
We will use her from now on.
Our dog Coco had a blast at Lindsay's house. This was her second stay at Lindsay's and from the pictures that Lindsay sent us she was having a ball. Lindsay is awesome about sending photos of her stay. She always comes home tired; which is a good thing. Lindsay is always very accommodating and we always feel comfortable leaving Coco with her. I would highly recommend Lindsay!
Lindsay was fantastic (again). Following a family emergency, she was able to keep my greyhound and check in on my 3 cats (and fish) while we traveled out of town. We hit snowstorms on the way in and out, and Lindsay was incredibly accommodating and flexible. I plan to use her again.
Our family highly recommends Lindsay! This home-away-from-home was a great fit for our dog & family, too knowing that she would get all the love and attention needed. We loved to see the daily pictures Lindsay posted.
We had a very good experience with Lindsay! Boyd had a great time playing with her family. We will definitely use her services in the future.
He had to stay an extra day because our plane was so late. Lindsay agreed to keep pup an extra day with no problem. Great, friendly accommodating family.
Excellent host. Sent adorable pics and Puck seemed very comfortable there.
Great visit for our pup. Lindsey & family were very warm and welcoming.
Awesome visit. Lindsey and her family made our pup feel right at home.
Our pup has been going to Lindsey's now on a regular basis. She always has a blast and gets so excited when we pull up! So thankful to have her and her sweet family.
Lindsay and her family took great care of our golden retriever puppy! Dixie had a fun time with new friends and was exercised every day. Lindsay kept us updated with notes and pictures each night. We would definitely recommend her.
Bree had a great time with Lindsey and her sweet family. They have a great set up and my pup came home exhausted from a fun visit.
Lindsay was fantastic. On short notice (the day before), she accepted our reservation. She visited my house twice, each time taking our greyhound for a 30 min walk. She sent photos after each visit, and the dog looked incredibly pleased in each one! Even though she wasn't scheduled to watch our cats, she took photos and pet them, too. I will definitely use her again! -Amy
