  • Description


    Any expected work or activities are related to that house and property. The (normally) only (other) person in the house / on the property is a 71 years-young nice, pleasant, very open-minded, interested and interesting widower. He lives and lived a most unusual life and likes to share his fascinating and beautiful experiences with his esteemed guests, including Workawayers. He is -other than doing a bed and breakfast- involved in translating/interpreting, journalism, ghost-writing, some consulting, likes to laugh, to think, to have excellent conversations with no taboos, likes to read and listen to "good" music, likes to have interesting people at his house who don't mind intellectual honesty and openness. Increasingly, more than quite frequently, conversations between the host and guests are felt by the latter to be of great therapeutical value. The host has become -without intending to do so initially- an interesting "Life Coach" to numerous guests. This is a new, growing and exiting part of the host's activities or even business.

    A Workawayer will rarely have to perform any work or activities that are directly related to the Bed and Breakfast guests, other than cleaning up and re-doing the rooms.

    We do simply not have many B&B guests.

    The Workawayers will have their own pleasant room (TV, internet access).

    The bathroom is right outside the room and it is rarely used by another party.

    The elegant, cozy Arcona House (see website: is situated right on a lake and is considered one of the most beautiful properties in this region.
    There is plenty of opportunity to enjoy the garden, the lake and the sun and to r e l a x.

    We have no pets and allow no pets inside our house. Any kind of smoking (cigarettes or "grass") is not permitted on our property.

    The entire Arcona House is considered a quiet and tranquil place at which one is very considered of other occupants .

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our region within British Columbia is called the Cariboo; in official tourism terms it's called Cariboo Chilcotin Coast. Guests can easily obtain "all" information about our region via internet; "Hello B.C." or other sites by the tourism department of British Columbia.

    In spite of coming to what some people may consider "the wilderness", Workawayers will realize that they learn much.
