Hello! My name is Jailin and I am a traveler too!
I recently moved into a new place and I am bit a overwhelmed with work to do to make it feel more like home. I know there are great travellers out there who might like to stay in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies and lend a helping hand.
In return I can offer a futon in the basement. It is not a bedroom, but a partitioned off area that is bright (big ground level window).
I live close to trails and Hinton's famous attraction, the Beaver Boardwalk. Winter, skating, cross country skiing, downhill skiing and winter fat bike riding are all accessible.
Hinton is a small community with all you need. Jasper National Park is only 20km away - and the mountain fun opportunities are endless.
Plus, the home is fun. There is often music playing and food cooking. I also enjoy quiet time and time alone.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
A great location and some cool people to hang with.
I am active in the mountains and in my community and love welcoming new people.
If there is something you want to experience (ice fishing, snowboarding, Northern Lights), I can help make it possible for you :)
I have completed most of my smaller projects. I am currently looking for help with larger projects from people with experience and interest in home maintenance and small renovations/DIY projects.
Here are some examples of projects I have left to do
- put tile on bathroom floors
- paint walls in bedrooms and main floor
- backyard maintenance (I have a small backyard and little things to be done)
*️️️️If someone is looking for a short stay I would happily accept help cleaning the home (floors, bathrooms, kitchen). The house is generally tidy, but can use a deeper clean every so often :)
This host offers a language exchange

It depends how many roommates I have at the time and if a bedroom is free. The two possibilities are
- A private bedroom with comfortable bed
- A futon in the unused basement (with divider to make space private)
Bathrooms will always be shared (one shower in the house, two toilets)
Meals will be provided when I am home. Other times food will be available for your own preparation.
I eat mostly vegetarian and will be happy to accommodate food preferences and needs.
I am flexible regarding which days you want to work or not.
Having fun and getting outside is a priority for me and I would also make it a priority for you too.
