  • Description


    We are a young family of four. We live on 30 acres (including a mountain top) with our two dogs. We are hoping to expand our gardening and livestock situation and would love help in exchange for lodging. My wife and I backpacked Europe several years ago and love meeting new people from around the world!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a very active outdoor family. We spend our summers hiking, running, mountain biking, camping, etc. We'd be happy to show travellers around the area and all the best spots for outdoor recreating.

    We'd also love to host our travellers for meals, hanging out, and enjoying our region with us.
