  • Description


    Olds is a lovely little town nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. We love hosting people who have never experienced the beauty of this natural wonder.

    We are a family of 5. 3 children ages 8.5, 6.5 and 2.5 plus mom and dad. Isaac is our oldest. He is a sweet, shy boy who loves his little sisters, construction and soccer goal tending!! Julia is a bubbly, funny girl who is always singing and dancing. She and her brother love to read, play with lego, play outside and go swimming!! The youngest is Naomi. This little bundle of joy is not like any other 2 year old! She is almost always happy, loves to help, and is a smart little cutie!

    Jeff owns a heavy truck repair business that keeps him SUPER busy. On top of that he is part of the volunteer firefighters brigade in Olds. He's a man of many talents and can fix just about anything!

    Allison is an optometrist and owns an eye clinic in Olds, She works 3/4 time, and when not at work is busy running the kids to all kinds of activities, attending church, and social engagements.

    We are a super busy, fun, loving family. We would love to have you in our home to experience true small town Canada! We love to be tourists in our own "backyard" and would take you into the mountains, to the city, to see the dinosaurs in Drumheller, go horseback riding...and if you're up for it some hiking or even white water rafting! We love to garden, spend time with friends, and quiet evenings with a movie.

    We have a dedicated guest space and you would have a private bathroom, with access to laundry and the kitchen.

    We are looking for childcare over the summer while Allison is working :)
