  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 4 with 2 dogs. We live on 3 acres of Muskoka woodland with a pond and walking trails. We are a short 10 min drive to Arrowhead Provincial park for mountain biking, camping, and fishing. We live 1km from 2 lakes and are good friends with the owner of the best Equestrian centre in Muskoka.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Muskoka is world renowned as a beautiful destination for holiday: lakes, rivers, forests, cottages, boating, beaches, bike trails, and nice small towns for necessities. This is country living at some of Canada's best.

    I am a wellness consultant and teacher and both my husband and I can teach a Workawayer much about Canada, English, Art and history.

    Workawayers with French language can benefit by providing conversation/instruction to our children 9 and 11 (informally) in exchange for 2 letters of reference from 2 education professionals with Master's degrees in education.
