Details

  • Description

    Description

    We are a husband and wife couple with two wonderfully active children aged 7 and 11. We live on a small rural acreage nestled between the Rocky and Cariboo Mountains. We enjoy the outdoors gardening, quading, fishing, horse back riding. Once winter comes, we enjoy sledding and snow shoeing as well.

    Part of why we love living in McBride is the amazing scenery and fabulous people. The community is exceptionally welcoming to new folks!
