  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our place is not in town or just outside of town, it's about 1 hour and 45 mins from the city along the most beautiful mountain highway. Other people live here but there are no stores, restaurants or bars. We are open to possible long stays based on a trial period.

    While you are here you will want to take time to hike and explore the "Ancient cedar forest" where some of the giant trees are over 2000 years old. Some trees take 12 to 14 people to wrap your arms around, they are immense!!! A real connection with history.

    Cast your rod and try fishing by the dome creek or the great Fraser river.

    Take our paddle boat out for a spin on our lake and check out the beaver lodge, and view hawks and ducks and other local bird life.

    Many bears, deer, moose around, bring your camera!

    In the winter: borrow our snowshoes, cross country skis or come along with us on regular vintage snowmobile rides.

    So much to do for the outdoor enthusiast, and many peaceful places to sit and read, try our hammock!

    We Love our campfires, playing music, swimming, boating, snowmobiling, learning, there isn't much that we don't love. We are a couple who are enthusiastic about living off the land and are working our way towards a more self sufficient lifestyle everyday. We have passion for life and are looking to connect with like minded people. Our favorite part of the workaway experience is the friendships we have made. From the middle of April onwards we will be looking at filling our cabin with four positive people.
