  • Description


    Our family has lived on this beautiful property just south of Ottawa, Canada for about 8 years ago. It is a beautiful farm house and renovated barn where I cater and host a wide range of events from office parties to weddings. Nestled between soy fields and a beautiful golf course, this country retreat is far enough out of town to make it peaceful, but close enough to have all of the amenities a short 30 minute drive away. Keeping up with the gardens and surrounding property can be enough work in itself, however, we do also need extra help with tasks such as painting, minor repairs, housekeeping, setting up for events etc. As avid travelers ourselves, we love hosting guests with diverse backgrounds and have been lucky enough through workaway to host individuals from the US, Australia, France, Germany, Estonia, Belgium, Switzerland, Mexico, Colombia, Italy,China, Taiwan, Japan and England. We look forward to welcoming you into our family during your stay here in Canada.

    Travellers looking to see how a busy Canadian Family lives will enjoy this exchange. In winter months one can learn an awful lot about hockey and learn all sorts of culinary delights throughout the year.

    If you love the outdoors, we have ample projects to keep you going with many of our gardens in need of weeding and some TLC. We have small orchard which will need some care as well as lot of general yard work. If indoor work is more your cup of tea we have lots and lots of minor repair projects or even just housekeeping to keep you busy. In addition to this we would have work in the catering venue itself as far as lending a hand setting up for events and even in the kitchen if that was of interest. In short we would have something to suit all sorts of different tastes and would be happy with any help we could get.
