We have a log house on 3 beautiful acres with spectacular mountain views on the outskirts of Whitehorse. We have an extensive garden and greenhouse in which we grow fruits and vegetables for our own consumption. We have a small flock of laying hens and we also have a rabbitry.
We are looking for people to help around the house and garden and with animal care. If you have experience - that's great! If not, we can teach you what you need to know.
We are a friendly, active couple in our mid 30's. We enjoy hiking, biking and paddling. We are excited to share the beauty of the mountains in the Yukon and get to know some new people from around the world.
Help in the house
We are looking for help with general maintenance of the property and buildings as well as garden work and preserving items harvested from the garden. We try to use mainly organic methods in our garden and greenhouse. Depending on the weather and the season, tasks could include
care of chickens/egg collection
care of rabbits
We all share in household chores so washing dishes, vacuuming, and general tidying up are not included in this list as they are considered part of living in a shared space.
English, some French
We have a guest room in the house with a queen bed and use of a shared bathroom. In the summer months there is also the possibility of tenting or using a trailer on the property for more privacy. The household includes a couple, one elderly parent, two cats and two dogs. We are in a community of similar acreages approximately 10 KM from downtown Whitehorse. We are a non-smoking household and would prefer non smoking guests.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
