    Description

    We live near Lunenburg, Nova Scotia (UNESCO World Heritage Site) in a community called Feltzen South. Our Home is situated at the end of a sandy beach on Lunenburg Bay with a view of Lunenburg. We run a seasonal B & B with an online rental platform. We enjoy sharing our beautiful home and corner of the world. When we have time we take friends out Mackerel fishing on board our 20’ Cape Island Boat which is docked around the corner at the community government wharf. Fall here is a beautiful time of year as the ocean is warm and the heat of summer is behind us. Besides beautiful Lunenburg there are many beaches and hiking trails such as Gaff Point. Around the corner is The Ovens Park featuring trails and sea caves.


    We are a couple with a bed and breakfast near Lunenburg Nova Scotia. Due to Covid we are closed and doing some maintenance and replacing windows.
    We are looking for a couple who could help put in firewood, stain house and other odd jobs needing to be done before winter.
    Accommodations are available in one of our B&B rooms (during a week or two stay) in exchange for 3-5 hrs work per day, 5 days per week. Meals can also be provided. There will be lots of time for exploring Lunenburg, Mahone Bay, Peggy’s Cove, etc.
    Must be physically able to stack firewood, paint on staging and complete requested tasks. Our home and out buildings need to be stained. (proper safety equipment provided)
    We expect anyone working for us to put safety first and have a positive work ethic.
    English speaking mandatory.
