Caretaker Service

Apple Creek works with local real estate and leasing agents, as well as private owners of Airbnb and Vrbo rentals to provide caretaker service, primarily during the winter months. 

Why might you need a caretaker?

Crews can respond to specific requests to meet service people (painters, cable technician) or secure deliveries at the property or just do periodic or post storm property checks to make sure winter weather has not caused damage. 

Solo Build It!

When the power goes out during a storm or due to a nearby traffic accident we can reboot modems and reset security systems.

Technicians, equipped with the latest technology, photograph and document all work performed. 

Apple Creek's technicians can recommend specialized contractors when necessary.  

In addition, Apple Creek crews provide traditional landscaping and tree removal services to our residential and commercial client base, throughout the counties of Pennsylvania that we serve.


Absent Homeowners

Are you tired of your weekend getaways turning into weekend workaways? 

You want to be getting your boat out on Elk Lake, not scrambling to get a propane delivery.

A couple hours of skiing at Big Bear is fun!  Find that a tree has come down & shattered your window is not.

If your home is equipped with a security system or temperature monitors, we can be added to the notification list so we can respond quickly.

With just a phone call, you can have Apple Creek's crews onsite to bring in deliveries, turn up the heat and turn on some lights for your winter holiday family vacation or get your yard ready for that Independence Day summer blowout.

Absent homeowners can stop worrying about what they will find when arriving to open the house for the season with Apple Creek's caretaker service.
