  • Beschreibung


    We are a small outdoorsy family of three, living off the grid on our large property we purchased nearly three years ago. We are homesteading in a remote area with limited soil resources - it was a large gravel pit belonging to CN Railway in the WWII era. We are working with poultry, a few hogs, a Jersey cow and a beautiful horse to work the land back into greenery. Much of it is planted with beautiful red pines and we border several small ponds and one picturesque lake. Our homestead is a work in progress and there is always so much to do, but the results are seen quickly and it makes us so happy to see life returning to our land!

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We live in a really unique and beautiful area, land of the blue lakes and rocky shores. We have both travelled in the past and love to hear new adventure stories or share knowledge about permaculture and livestock. We also love our meal times! We love trying new foods and learning new recipes/traditions, so if you're up for sharing some of your talents please do!

On down days help in the house, cooking and cleaning.

  • Unterkunft


    The accommodations are a small cabin/bunkie with a nearby new outhouse. It has a queen bed, a tiny woodstove, a small dresser and desk.
    There is a large porch attached.
    You can take a shower in the house. We are happy to host but do need our private time during evening hours after suppertime and throughout the day when our son is napping.

    We are fairly remote here, no public transport so you would need a vehicle to get here, alternatively there is a bus that travels to the dearest town where we can pick up/drop off. There is a lot of good fishing and hiking here, many trails to explore. We have a bounty of wildlife to see but it is not guaranteed to see them! There are several abandoned mine sites that are interesting to visit, and quetico park is a short drive away. Our nearby community is the canoeing capital of Canada, and as so there are many lakes and rivers to enjoy! We ourselves tend to be homebodies that dont go out much, we have so much entertainment here with our small group of mixed animals! I enjoy horseback riding, walks through the forest, sewing, baking and much more. We are both outdoors people and even our little one likes to be out in the fresh air! You would be welcome to join us on our outings to town to buy supplies, check the mail etc. We usually enjoy a large sunday lunch with my family and you would be more than welcome to come along!

    We located a few km off the paved road but the gravel roads are maintained and a camper or trailer would make it here with no issues. We have lots of space but limited power as we are off grid.
