  • Description


    Six acres on the mighty Fraser River approximately an hour and a half east of Vancouver, B.C. Surrounded by beautiful mountains in a valley that lends itself to hiking, camping and a wonderful laid back life. My furry family is a large hound, shitzu/Sheltie and a mini Pomeranian. We have two horses, 6 pigs, 2 calves. In the fall I do a couple hundred broiler chickens (eating chickens). I try to live as organically as I can but my workload is heavy so cheat all the time. I have a small cabin on property that is great for a single person or travelling friends. Would love to have someone that likes to cook, loves animals and loves to be outside. My home is your home while you are here. I am host that offer room and board.
