Looking for a single or couple for approx. one month to house / dog sit for month of October.
We would need tending to our yard and organic garden while away. Small house chores. Sit back and relax and enjoy a quiet peaceful country setting.
Quiet location with lots of hiking trails, lake access for swimming, fishing , boating and ATV riding.
We live in a Rural area in central BC. We have 1 small dog, a jack Russell whom we love very much. My husband works at home operating our own business building log furniture. I work away from home doing bookeeping. We live in a mountain forested area, and we receive quite a bit of snow in the winter months, so an ideal place for a nature lover or someone who is looking for some quiet time.
Our house alows for a private room, with Digital Cable TV and wireless internet. We also have a hot tub for soaking up those summer nights watching the stars.
Summer time is great here as we are a 5 minute walk to Mara Lake, beaches, fishing and boating. The forested area behind our house offers many hiking trails with gorgeous views.
