We are a bridge between Toronto and the wilderness of northern Ontario. We are an active family and we will encourage you to bicycle, camp, canoe and go on hikes while you stay with us.
We own a seasonal cafe, have two beautiful children and we're generally really busy during the summer. We have a guest room, and we need some help with the general running of our home. Mostly the help would involve taking care of our two amazing children (ages 6 and 9) and simple house cleaning. We love to welcome people to the community and Peterborough is a really fun place to be during the summer. We live close to the lake and will find you a canoe and bicycle to use! We're part of a fun community and we're pretty keen to see those that we host have a great time seeing the sites of our community.

Peterborough is a fun place to be in the summer. We would love to help you find connection to this beautiful community. Our kids are beautiful and fun (8 and 5 years) and they are a lot of fun to be with.
We need help with childcare. We would love some help around our house. We can connect you with other volunteer opportunities that interest you. We are often able to show you an experience of Ontario that you would never be able to experience as a tourist.
