Hi, we are Steve and Emily, and we run a fantastic Bed and Breakfast in Williams Lake, located in the heart of the spectacular Cariboo region of British Columbia. Our scenic 27 acre (11 hectare) property is privately located just 10 minutes from downtown Williams Lake. We are an active couple, enjoying the outdoors and our friendly family of 4 horses, 2 dogs, 3 barn cats, and one indoor Burmese cat.
We are looking for someone active, animal friendly and eager to help us out with a variety of projects and chores. We would prefer someone that wanted to stay more than just a few weeks. And with so many attractions and outdoor adventures at our doorstep, Williams Lake is a perfect place to spend some quality time.
With so many attractions and outdoor adventures at our doorstep, make sure to stay awhile. Discover Xatśūll First Nations Heritage Village and the Williams Lake Stampede. Explore the Gold Rush Trail, Farwell Canyon, Churn Creek and the beautiful Chilcotin Plateau, and visit nearby Barkerville Historic Town. Experience some of BC’s best mountain biking in Williams Lake, which has a network of over 200kms of amazing trails to explore (fantastic for hiking and trail running as well). Reach the alpine in the Cariboo Mountains around Likely, and check out the many trails in the Wells, Barkerville and South Cariboo areas. Enjoy undisturbed swimming, fishing and paddling in one of hundreds of lakes nearby.
