  • Description

    Description

    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.
