Hello, my family and I run an eco fishing lodge and we would love to have some help this summer. We live on a 7 acre off-grid property with 15 cabins and an 800 acre lake with 27 islands to explore. This little piece of paradise would be a great place to live for the summer in exchange for helping us run the lodge. We have a MIN of two weeks so please ensure you plan to stay for at least 2-4 weeks

This is a place where you get to meet people from all over the world. It isn't all work either. There are frequent bonfires, games, canoe rides, and fishing days. If you have never driven a boat before, you have the option to learn. If you like to fish, you will have plenty of time. There is also the famous High Rim hiking trail nearby that goes all the way from Vernon to Kelowna. Bring a pedal bike, motor bike, or borrow our paddle boards for an amazing day. Around us there are hundreds of quading trails to nearby lakes and the closest town is only 25 mins away by car, and only 50 mins away from Kelowna, or 45 mins from Vernon.
Please be aware that this is a remote location and if you are looking to leave the lodge you will either need to: bring your own transportation or be willing to work around our town schedules. Outside of pick up and drop off we do not accommodate travel requests. Thanks for understanding!
This host offers accommodation and payment.

Small cabin or camper with cook-top, dishes, table and chairs. Primary facilities are out houses and a shared shower house (on-demand hot water). There is a shared BBQ in the common area and a bonfire pit as well as a smoker that you are welcome to use. You may be required to share your space with another work-awayer depending on how many people are coming.
Internet is available. We have a cell booster at the lodge but it only works with Fido and Rogers.
We provide food. You are welcome to anything in our fridge and we are also open to any requests that you would like for your stay. We eat fairly healthy and try to limit meat, but you are welcome to request it if that is your thing. We love veggie dishes, fish and have dairy free options as well. The kitchen is self serve and you are welcome to eat whenever you want. We often take turns cooking meals and love to have shared meals on the deck overlooking the lake.
If you are a creative soul we have musical instruments to share around a bonfire. We also have a school bus art studio and host classes all throughout the summer. If you are the artsy type, hit us up with your ideas!
We can pick up and drop off at the following locations: Kelowna/Vernon Greyhound or the Airport
Explore the region around us as it is ridiculously beautiful. We are hoping to buy some used bicycles soon so you are able to borrow them if we have them as well as our boats if there are no people renting them out (we have kayaks, paddle boards, canoes, pontoon boats and motor boats). There are tons of back country lakes to explore and the Islands are fun too. Bonfires are fun as long as there are no fire bans. We go to town at least twice per week in summer and there is opportunity to be dropped off for exploring or to pick up things you need etc.
