This is a croft in the Boreal forest, at the edge of the Canadian Shield, situated on 4 acres.
Abundant wildlife, a quiet lane, beautiful night skies, a small organic garden and a few chickens.
I'm hoping to find someone to share my space for a couple of months this winter who can shovel the sidewalk, bring in firewood and feed the hens.
I live very quietly, and mainly occupy my time with writing. I'm mobility challenged.
If you are looking for a quiet place for the winter to curl up with a book and a cup of tea by the fire, you would like it here.
I have a piano and other instruments, and art supplies.
