My husband is a traveling nurse, and we just found out he's getting sent on an assignment to Barre from August 21 to November 21. Finding housing seems like a little bit of a chore!

We don't mind up to a half-hour commute one way from wherever to Barre. We have two small dogs (well-behaved, quiet, crate trained and house trained, both fixed). The problem we're running into mostly is that everything seems to be requiring a year lease... or, if available on a monthly basis, is a VERY expensive vacation home.

Am I just looking in the wrong places? I would love any tips or input.

We rent our condo through a vacation rental agency, and we've had traveling nurses before - I would see if there are any real estates nearby (or within the 30 minute radius) that offer vacation rentals...most people like to rent for the ski season, so I would think finding something from August - November should be doable, though distance/location might be the key factor. VRBO might have something as well, maybe in the Waterbury area.

Good luck!

tkln - thank you! I've looked into the vacation rentals and so far they are WAY over the housing stipend the nursing agency gives us--hopefully I'll find something soon!
