  • Description


    Our family lives on an acreage just 5 minutes from downtown Cranbrook.
    We have two very active toddlers and we would need someone who is willing to spend some time playing with and enjoying these small people's company, we would also like help with our horses and some house work.

    We would like to have two workawayers at a time throughout the year. Experience in childcare and previous horse experience an asset.

    We live 5 minutes from Cranbrook , a city of 20,000 people located in the East Kootenay region of southern B.C. We are 45 minutes from the Montana and Idaho Border of the USA. If you love the outdoors and all the activities that go along with having easy access to oodles of wilderness then this may be the place for you. There are plenty of beautiful towns to explore, a 28km paved trail between Cranbrook and Kimberley, a bus route through the Kootenays and some of the friendliest people you will ever meet.
