  • Description


    Owning a property & land on Lake Seymour in the Trent Hills in Ontario. Clearing some land for planting of pine trees. Also a holiday cottage, in need of restoration and property maintenance. Great balance of work rest and play, having boats, paddles boards kayaks. Also a tree house fully insulated and amazing place to sleep 16 feet high in the trees with breathtaking views. We have two very young children. So experience in childcare a plus. We are having an outdoor hot tub being installed in November. Should help relax after cutting and splitting wood. Also if the weather hold out we will be installing metal roofing to all our buildings.

    Update on Covid-19 we are very careful. We expect any new stays to have already self isolated for 14 days as per government requirements. We are very lucky here in the Trent Hills with only the odd isolated incident. For our neighbors and family, we hope to keep it this way.

    We are also only hosting one or two people at any time.

    thanks for checking us out.
