This is is warm and welcoming century home that has become a touchstone for many who have visited over the years. I am a busy 55 year old realtor with 3 20-something kids who drop in now and then with their pals to cook up big dinners and start conversations about everything under the sun. We are located in Chateauguay, a small community off island, a few minutes walk from a bus to the Angrignon métro. The atmosphere is relaxed and easygoing, this is a great place to step back, breathe deeply and disconnect from the craziness.

Life does not have to be about what others tell you is 'success'.. we believe that 'success' means looking within, finding your sweet spots and intentionally creating a life in accordance with your values and beliefs. Here you will have a chance to discuss your beliefs and aspirations, maybe set some goals, see what freedom and open mindedness look like. 2 of my kids have done great workaways, we want to contribute to the community.
Historic riverfront home, located not too far from downtown Montreal and accessible by public transit, needs a few more hours than what I can spare at the moment. There is always something to do here, and if not here, then perhaps with my annual warm clothing drive for the homeless, or helping an elderly person pack some boxes before I sell their home.
We sporadically have a big feast nights with friends and family..and we would like to share that with some new people. The gig is chill, in this house we like to talk about life, goals directions and experiences over a few glasses of wine and a lot of laughter. Once the bigger jobs are done (spring and fall clean up, gardening) aside from helping keep this huge house clean and helping to cook dinners so I can focus on other responsibilities, I don't need a ton of hours, just some blitzes now and then in a few different areas. NB I have found that 1-2 week stays are the best on our end.

In Montreal? Anything and everything!! The bus to the metro (subway ) line is about a 5 minute walk, and you can get downtown in about 60 minutes. Montreal is a world class city, several universities, affordable eats, lots of young people and a thriving indie music and arts scene.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
works out to about 4-5 per day, but often guests will do a full day and then take a day to go visit Montreal. I am flexible unless there is a rush on something, i.e. stacking wood out of the rain or raking leaves before the snow falls.
