  • Description


    This is a remote location along the famous Gold Rush Trail between Wells/Barkerville and Likely, BC. The spectacular view of the Cariboo Mountain Range can be seen from the Cafe. Tourists come from all over the world to hike, rent cabins, or enjoy a meal at the Café, while enjoying the wilderness and exploring the history rich area. I need help with serving and/or cooking, housekeeping, clearing trails, cooking, painting, maintenance and smaller building projects. You will be paid for every hour you work. When writing me, keep in mind, this is an off grid business, there is no cell service and wifi is only available when the generator is running.

    What else ...

    BC is rich in history from the Cariboo Gold Rush years ago. Barkerville, a unique gold rush town is open to the public with some great shops in Wells nearby. Every summer Wells has a music festival with musicians and artists travelling to from all corners of B.C. it’s a great experience. There are lots of places to hike, if you enjoy nature. If you want to try your hand at panning for gold I do have the equipment, you never know!
