  • Description


    Hello. We live on a 9 acre property in the recreational and lovely area between Washington and Oregon called the Columbia River Gorge. The house sits along side Carson Creek with 2 waterfall and a lovely view point over the Columbia River just a 5 minutes walk to the South. We have ongoing maintenance projects around our home, like landscaping, building steps, trimming trees, and always pulling blackberry bushes or hauling falling branches out of the creek. Also, the opportunity for unique project, like digging trench for water/power, or building an outdoor bathroom area. We're interested in starting a garden.

    I also would love if you want to cook for me! Or there are carpentry projects in the house if you are skilled. Let us know what your skills are and we can find something I'm sure :)

    Looking for someone to pull blackberry bushes in May and October. If you work around my Airbnb reservations, you will have lovely accommodations in a private room with access to a kitchen and laundry. Meals are not provided. If you want to stay longer or come in June, July, August, September camping on the property with access to an outdoor shower and port-a-potty is an option.

    We are looking for people who are not afraid to get dirty or work with your hands. If you are comfortable using a pole saw or weed whacker, that would be great. If you have building skills, that would be great. Looking to clear land that has been taken over by blackberry briars.

    It would be idea if you had your own car. If you do not, it might be tough to access all the fun, although it is beautiful here and you can explore our land.

    I have Centurylink DSL with an extender. If you are camping, you would have to work on the back patio or close to the house. If you are staying in the house, it isn't an issue.
