We have a 40 acre holiday resort in the North Okanagan area of B.C. Canada. The resort is family oriented with 7 cabins situated around a private lake and borders Echo Lake Provincial Park. Kim & Harald are the owner/operators. Harald is of German heritage, but grew up in Africa and loves the outdoors and cookouts with our guests. Kim is originally from the U.S., but has lived and worked in Canada for the past 25 years, has a University degree and helps the many exchange helpers with their English. We have 3 children ages 24, 22 and 20 who grew up on the resort and at least one of them is usually helping here in the summer months.
The Okanagan area where we live is a popular area for tourists as we have many lakes here, lots of hiking trails, skiing nearby, many golf courses, many wineries, and just about any outdoor sport you can think of. Our resort is in the mountains with lots of cedar and fir trees and sits next to a very pretty fishing lake surrounded by old growth cedars.
Help in the house
We are looking for someone who is able to help with weekend cabin cleaning, cleaning of brush, gardening, and general maintenance. Landscaping and carpentry skills are also very helpful as we are rebuilding our shop and want to work more on gardens and landscaping this year. Would prefer someone wanting to stay for at least 2 weeks to 2 months. During their time off our helpers are able to use the canoes or kayaks, swim in the lake, go for hikes, use the bikes, go to town. They also are welcome to come along to any functions we may be going or participate in activities that we do with our guests.
English & German
Helpers stay in a 30 ft. 2 bedroom travel trailer (RV) or have a room in the main house. Meals are eaten at the main house with family. Helpers who stay in the RV use the bathroom with toilet and shower, laundry facility and kitchenette in the building next to helpers trailer. To view our resort ask for our website.
