I was suprised at how difficult it was to find a rental here in BV last summer, but there are some out there. Short term with a dog makes it harder though. If you haven't already, keep an eye on www.chaffeecountytimes.com
. It's our weekly newspaper and you can get to the classifieds online. I found though that I just had to get up here and look/talk to people etc. I'm moving into a new place in April, not really any room for more humans but it has a big yard and my dog always likes canine company. Let me know if you're still looking, I do hear of places now and then. -good luck..
