    Description

    Doug and Pat live on the 160 acre Ranch in beautiful BC, Canada. We have two grown boys and a girl that work in Alberta. Doug and Pat are both retired and busy with keeping the ranch running. It is a big property and we have lots of projects to work on, as well as take care of 6 horses, 9 chickens, 1 dogs and 2 cats! We have a 3 year old Morgan that we will be riding this spring of 2019 and also the mother we are training to ride. Pat is a quilter and loves to spend her free time on quilting projects, Doug likes to be outside with the horses. We have been Work-a-way hosts now for 6 years and really enjoy the program. Common chores here are feeding the horses, chickens, gardening, cutting wood for winter, fixing fences, painting, cutting the grass....it never ends :) We enjoy having guests and learning about other peoples cultures and lives. We hope you will cook for us at least once while you stay! We like to play cards in the evenings, horseback ride, ski in the winter.

    2019 is a special year for us as we are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. We are having a vow renewal and party at the ranch and will need help taking care of our 100 or so guests! Should be fun!

    Come and joins us for month or two!

    We have a travel RV as a summer cabin for our work-a-way guests. It is a 24' camper with self contained bathroom, shower, kitchen. Very nice and clean! In the winter months we sometimes take guests in to our home with us, or we also have an outdoor cabin that is just used for a bedroom. We have a few options and usually sort that out with you in advance.
