    Good Host
  • Description


    Small family w farm. We love to travel, grow animals and trying to get a small business started to help support the farm. We love the outdoors and when not working we like to travel to the mountains an go camping and fishing and take our boat and go on Puget Sound up to Olympic Mtns.

    We are looking for people that can help with carpentry, fence building, nursery/gardening skills. People who want to learn things like metal fabrication and agicultural operations such as haying , mechanics, renovation, general woodworking and sawmilling. We are especially interested in folks who can do web design for the farm and graphics design to help us get it branded with a logo or something.

    You dont need special skills wih us. Just a positive attitude, willingness to try and learn and adventurous spirit that likes to explore. For the right person we would be happy to take you flying and teach you how to pilot a plane or a boat. We have a car you can use to explore he area as you wish, as well.

    Must want to have fun is a must!! We have a large home with one guest room. If you wish to stay outside of main house we can provide room in our rv , as well. We prefer someone who isnt shy and becomes part of the family.

    Workawayers with their own rigs are more than welcome. We have a site away from the house that has power and water hookup. No blackwater hookup at the site but we do have a easy access dump hookup located at the main house

    Due to a bad experience, we can longer accept workawayers with children under the age of 18. We are sorry for having this rule but feel it is important to continue as a host.

    We generally limit stays from two to three weeks.

    Please be vaccinated. While you may be young and it won't impact you much please consider that your hosts may not be. And could have other health conditions where covid.can be fatal. It's free and helps protect us all.

    Space for parking camper vans

    Quiet location with power and water hookup if needed. Do not have a septic hookup so you would need to bring your rig up to the main house for dump hookup.

  • Can possibly accept pets

    Can possibly accept pets

    Depends on the pet. For obvious reasons we can not accept pets that would harass or injure livestock or chickens. And we do not allow cats in our home.
