  • Description


    We are presently looking for help getting our multiple gardens ready to plant a wide variety of vegetables and different flowers

    In the early 80's, I traveled in Europe for one year going from place to place basically making my own arrangements to help the various businesses in exchange of room and boards as back then, there was no Workaway or wifi (lol) in those days. I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to have one day my own Resort where I could now host and return all the great experiences that I had so cherished.

    Now there is a great Workaway platform so that we can match ourselves so much more efficiently. Bravo! our experience so far with Workawayers has been really great and we are looking for all you Organic Gardening Keener

    We have a Mini Resort attracting clients who live in Canada now but of many different communities who rent the Resort as a whole for up to 100 people events and sleeping 24 in the main resort plus other accommodations.

    We are looking for help in running the operation of the hotel including the Social Media required to make the Business better known!

    This is as great a learning experience for me as a host and I try to share with you, as a workawayer, as much of running the complete operation so that you can understand my decision-making process in the complete operation of the Resort And me, I can learn from you in your special area of expertise, That way, we can both learn from each other in a great learning environment.

    We are situated in Western Quebec, Canada, one hour north of Ottawa, Most times, we try to coordinate our weekly trip to town with your arrival, Plan B is to direct you to the Ottawa Bus Terminal where you can take a bus service to the nearby town where I can pick you up.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The Resort attacks many groups (capacity for 24 people) under one private roof. These are people with common interest such as outdoor sport, a wedding, a fishing tournament, to name a few... This cosmopolitan aspect of the client is a very fascinating aspect of this job as we meet people from litteraly every walk of life and workawayers gte to meet them very often on a personal basis.

    This is the large front property on the lake which includes access to a marina including our own paddle board, canoe, kayaks, pontoon boat. On your time off, you get to enjoy the Water Toys right on the lake.

    If you like to understand the business from every aspect, then this is a great opportunity for you as you get to be involved in every business decision required to run the operation successfully.
