    We are located 30 minutes from Nelson British Columbia. A well known playground for outdoor enthusiasts, arts and culture with trendy shops and restaurants. Our home is situated on the cliffs of Kootenay Lake, where you can enjoy kayaking, swimming and fishing.
    Ainsworth Hot Springs is 10 minutes up the road where you can soak in natural mineral hot springs that over look the pristine mountains and Kootenay Lake.
    There is an abundance of hiking and mountain bike trails to explore.

    We are building from the ground up a track and paddock for 2 horses, along with a run in shelter and hay storage. Our land is rocky and treed, so a variety of fencing with be implemented. Creativity and some experience would be greatly appreciated.
    Some of our garden beds need to be replaced, so help with rebuilding these would be needed.

    There are plenty of activities to enjoy on your time off if you enjoy the great outdoors. There is a bus near by that you can take if you want to spend time in the beautiful mountain town of Nelson.
    We are a quiet older couple that enjoys the peace and beauty that our home and surroundings provide.
    Lamourah is horse woman and spends most of her spare time with her horse, Myron is an avid gardener and takes great pleasure in growing organic food for us to enjoy. Myron's hobby is to play music solo or with friends.
    We have a 3 year old Spanish Water dog named Buzo who is non shedding and hypo allergenic. He is cuddly and smart and loves to play.
