  • Description


    We are a young 35 year old couple with no children. We just moved to a small acreage 5 minutes west of Calgary and are looking for help with gardening and fencing projects this summer. Unfortunately, I have broken my arm and am unable to do a lot of the outdoor projects by myself.
    We have two very well behaved dogs, and two young horses. We have a large private room with its own bathroom available to a single person or a couple.
    Our house is warm and inviting, with a very casual laid back atmosphere where you can come and go as you please, or join us on our many adventures to the mountains or the family ranch.
    From our house you can get a glimpse of the Rocky Mountains and you can walk to the elbow river. The large 4 acre yard is peaceful and private.
    We enjoy ranching, hunting, fishing, and everything outdoors. we are very involved with the Calgary Stampede, and love sharing our Western Canadian heritage.

    Our property is located at the base of the Rocky Mountains, 1 hour drive to Banff.
    Or we are 15 minutes drive from downtown Calgary.

  • Help


    I have a very broken elbow, and it’s so hard for me to not be able to do yard projects.
    I’d love help with gardening, yard work, tree pruning, fencing, pressure washing, raking leaves, dog walking.

  • Accommodation


    A large private room with a giant window, closet, and ensuite bathroom with steam shower.
    Meals are casual, we tend to cook at home often.
    Help yourself to breakfast, if there are special dietary requirements we can work around the groceries needed for that.
    Most dinners we have wild game or fish we harvested ourselves. Elk, bison, deer, walleye, salmon etc. or our family raised Alberta beef. Vegetarians may not be a suitable fit. :)

    Location & Logistics:
    We are located 5 minutes west of Calgary, 1 hour from Banff. Although very close to Calgary, you are in rural Alberta and public transportation is very limited in our province. With good notice and communication, we may be able to give you a ride to Calgary, Cochrane or Canmore. But this is by no means a guarantee of transport. If you’re looking to regularly hangout in towns and cities, this may not be the place for you (unless you have a car, of course).
