    Description

    Well life as we all know it has certainly changed. Some of you workaways may be stuck with no where to turn to.

    If you find you are in need of a roof to rest your head under for a short term to help ride out the pending crisis please reach out to us. We will try to do the best we can to help you.




    Quiet location with lots of hiking trails, lake access for swimming, fishing , boating and ATV riding.

    We live in a Rural area in central BC. We have 1 small dog, a jack Russell whom we love very much. My husband works at home operating our own business building log furniture. I work away from home doing bookeeping. We live in a mountain forested area, and we receive quite a bit of snow in the winter months, so an ideal place for a nature lover or someone who is looking for some quiet time.

    Our house alows for a private room, with Digital Cable TV and wireless internet. We also have a hot tub for soaking up those summer nights watching the stars.

    Summer time is great here as we are a 5 minute walk to Mara Lake, beaches, fishing and boating. The forested area behind our house offers many hiking trails with gorgeous views.
