We are two pilots who found this beautiful remote lake resort flying fishermen into Nimpo Lake, one of the most beautiful floatplane destinations in the Chilcotin area of Western British Columbia. Our family run resort on 19 acres the shore of the lake is in a remote area, but with all of the amenities one could ask for, (except for cellphone service). The resort focuses on relaxation and offers visitors wild rainbow trout fishing, easy access to alpine hiking in the Rainbow Mountains and Coastal Range, wildlife observation in the nearby Bella Coola Valley as well as occasional encounters with the bears, moose, wolves, foxes, and numerous eagles, loons, osprey, and owls that reside in the forests surrounding the lake. Many of our clients return year after year.

Our normal operating season is May through October. We need help with all aspects of running the resort, including hospitality, office and computer help, cleaning cabins, grounds maintenance, gardening, equipment maintenance, and building repairs, etc. There is no shortage of work possibilities, all too numerous to list here, for either skilled or unskilled helpers. One of the main reasons we are in need of volunteers is that we can be called away at different times for emergency service to the community and we need someone to care for the resort during those hours.
Our expectation is that you will stay a minimum of 3 weeks with the possibility of a longer period. Our last helper stayed 8 months. Food is provided and meals can be done separately or together. We will all work together setting the schedules. This is in exchange for about 5 hours of work a day with flexible time and/or days off. On days off you will have access to all the resort’s fishing boats and other amenities, the hiking opportunities, sightseeing or just flaking out.
We are looking for singles or couples who are self-motivated, trustworthy, conscientious workers. You will be expected to help us with all facets of the resort. You should be friendly and outgoing to interface with our guests. A nonsmoker is preferred, as there is a no-smoking policy in all the cabins and buildings; light use of liquor on your time off is permitted, but absolutely no drugs are allowed.
We provide private accommodations in fully contained cabins, where you will have a full kitchen and bathroom.
