We are a family with 2 kids (13 and 15 years old). We live in the country in a 1200 acre bush land with 48 husky dogs. In the winter time we own a dogsledding business and in the summer time, we have a small vineyard and Orchard + accommodation.
I am Sylvain (45). I study wildlife management and forestery. I work in the summer for the forest fighter departement and in the winter for our dogsledding business.
Caroline (43) is a teacher for the kindergarden kids. She is a very good cook and love to make you taste food with maple syrup frpm our own trees.
We are a very welcoming family and easy to get along with.

Our guests have a room with two double beds, including a private bathroom at their disposal. Our guests rooms are on the commercial part of our house but there is just a door which seperate the commercial part from our private house. Everything is very clean and we make sure that you feel comfortable and like home. People from Workaway are welcome to eat with our family together but you are also able to make food for your own and we would appreciate if you would cook sometimes for us and make us taste traditional food from your country. We like to eat meat so maybe not the best experience for Vegan ;-)
