    We are a reasonably active retired couple who live in a rural area on 10 acres. We have a large vegetable garden and fruit trees. My husband worked as a cabinet maker. I still work part time as an English as a Second Language teacher. We have a pet cat and several chickens. We are non-smokers and would prefer non-smoking guests.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our house is rural and not serviced by bus, so our guests would need to have a car to be totally independent. It is three kilometres to the nearest town. We could provide the occasional ride, but the workaway guest would have to be happy staying mostly at home, if they have no car. Our house is surrounded by forest and it is very private. It is not unusual to see deer or bears walk through the yard. We are not vegetarian, although do eat occasional vegetarian meals. We have a cat.
