We are a family of 4; 2 adults & 10 yr old boy/girl twins. We live on 5 beautiful acres in rural Maple Ridge, BC, Canada. Our area offers 3 lakes within 5 minute drive, Stave Lake, Hayward Lake and Rolly Lake, and a lake that takes us 3 minutes to walk to, Whonnock Lake. We also have many hiking trails in our area. It is an outdoor enthusiasts paradise. We are close to world class fishing and skiing. We have a 2 bedroom mobile home on our property where we would house our guests. We have 2 big dogs that enjoy our property and stay in with us at night.

British Columbia is known for it's super natural beauty. Our province is an outdoor enthuiasts paradise. There are so many outdoor sports to participate in. Maple Ridge, where we live, is an hour away from Vancouver, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Truly a must see.
We are looking for help with our property. We have many blackberry bushes that need to be pruned down and taken out of the garden. We have a huge hedge that needs to be cleaned up. We would like to plant a new hedge. We have to fall 3 or 4 trees, which my husband will do, but he would like help chopping it up for firewood and stacking it for the winter. We have a lot of weed eating that needs to be done.
We have a fully furnished two bedroom mobile home where our guests would stay. It is about 50 feet away from the main house so it would be like your own little house.
We have public transit in our area. In your time off you must go explore Vanouver, British Columbia. Vancouver is a world class city, truly a must see.
