We are a husband and wife couple with two wonderfully active children aged 4 and 8. We live on a small rural acreage nestled between the Rocky and Cariboo Mountains. We enjoy the outdoors 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!

Help around the house
While staying with us, you would be able to enjoy the culture of a small community. Things are a little slower here compared to the big cities. Check out the many tourist destinations including the ones that aren’t on any tourist maps. We do have all needed amenities in town (within walking distance) and some fabulous coffee shops too.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
In return for accommodation, we would ask for assistance with part time child care. Both parents work, both our schedules vary so only part time child care is needed at this time. That means the rest of the time, you can explore the wilderness, make new friends or hunker down in front of the fire place with a good book.
Other assistance would include general household cleaning or food preparation (minimal unless you have a special interests in culinary skills).
