    Looking for help this fall ASAP (September - October)

    Our resort is on the shores of magnificent Quesnel Lake in BC and we need HELP for the season!. My husband and I plus a caretaker run the resort. We are off-grid in the backcountry of BC and have 5 cabins, 50 RV sites, a Cafe and a 35 slip marina.
    If you like to spend some time in a wilderness setting away from city life and the main stream of tourism and enjoy a variety of work, from dealing with guests, landscaping, boats, painting, carpentry work, to chopping firewood and much more you will love it. A person with diversified skills and stamina would be our preference. No princess please. Our resort is in the Cariboo Region of British Columbia, near William's Lake.
    We supply room and board; including health conscious European cooking. In your time off you can go fishing, swim, hike, mountain bike or simply relax our our sandy beach. The resort opens May and closes for the winter in October . Spring clean up work starts about 3 weeks before opening and various ongoing renovations and maintenance jobs throughout the summer need to be done.. Our guests call the resort "little paradise"...want to check it out? If you are ready for BC's great outdoors, get in touch.

    The closest city is Williams Lake, where we will pick you up at the airport or the bus.
