    Come join Professional Guide (Ernie) & Professional Interpreter of Natural History (Carol Ann) in our remote acreage in the shadow of Mt Robson (highest peak in the Rockies) 1 1/2 hours west of Jasper National Park.
    We are currently seeking guests(s) from Oct 2018 to Apr 2019 (must commit to a minimum of 6 weeks please). In winter, cross-country ski in the shadow of Mt Robson. Or downhill ski at Marmot Basin in Jasper. Stay in the well-appointed "Africa Room" with your own entrance & bathroom.
    In summer, We have a riding horse & hiking trails galore. Our organic greenhouse, vegetable & herb gardens & apple orchard await your enthusiasm.
    Our ideal guest is a non-smoker/non-partier who, in summer, is interested in learning the organic lifestyle and could happily handle weeding, greenhouse duties, and in winter, housesitting, horse and pet care, snowplowing/blowing, other farm projects such as keeping the water system going during freeze-up, & keeping the house spic and span.
    We are early-to-bed/early-to-rise folks living in a remote place, so this stay is not for extroverts needing social stimulation, but rather those looking for serenity & solitude.

    In winter, we offer a picturesque farm-sitting opportunity with snow removal, animal care, water system and firewood duties.
    Summer through fall, we invite you to help us tend our vegetable/herb/flower gardens, greenhouse, care for & ride our horse, & do general farm maintenance. We serve wholesome, generous omnivorous meals from our gardens & orchard.
    Hosts are quiet, TV-free, early-to-bed/ early-to-rise. You will often be working alone so must be self directed. This workaway experience is not for extroverts, as we are very secluded & remote! Longer stays required - a minimum of 6 weeks in summer & six months in winter.
