We are Nick and Kaitlyn, an easygoing couple with a young and busy family. We have a 4 year old son, a nearly 3 year old daughter, a 1 year old daughter, and 3 dogs. Our house can sometimes get loud and crazy inside, but we have 147 acres of wilderness to explore if you like peace & quiet!
We're off the beaten track - 20 km from the highway and surrounded by trees, mountains and our own lake view. It’s not uncommon to see bears, moose, wolves, elk, and even lynx wandering through. We moved to this area in 2017 and are working to get our house and land in order. There is lots of work to do but with huge amounts of fun thrown into the mix too.
The nearest town is McBride, BC (an hour away) and the nearest airport is Prince George, BC (1.5 hours away.)

You will learn how to work the land. Plus, you will be in some of the most fantastic Canadian wilderness. The wildlife here is incredible. Take a look at our website and check out the photo gallery.
We need help chopping and processing firewood, looking after chickens, working in the vegetable garden, lawn mowing, general yard work, and child care. We have an ongoing project renovating the inside of our house, so if the weather is bad we can always end up working on that. We harvest and mill our own lumber on our property for renovation projects; this year we will be upgrading our chicken coop, workshop, front porch and building some flower planters.
We're also very keen to find someone who is willing to help out with childcare here and there during the week.
You will have your own room in the basement of our cabin with a queen sized bed. There is a bathroom on the main floor that is mainly yours to use but we do use it occasionally. Also in the main floor are the kids’ bedrooms, our bedroom, kitchen, and living room. Our TV room in is the basement. We have excellent internet services for being so remote, so you can stay connected to loved ones. Nick is an excellent cook and used to own a restaurant back in the UK so you can be sure you won't go hungry. Usually everyone is responsible to get themselves breakfast and lunch, but we like to have a sit-down family meal every night at supper. If you like to cook, you are welcome to take a turn cooking supper for everyone!
There are many hiking trails within an hour of our place. Twenty minutes away is Chun T’oh Whudujut (aka the Ancient Forest), a provincial park that protects the world’s only inland temperate rainforest. It’s full of towering western redcedar trees and is a must-see. Mount Robson, the highest point in the Canadian Rockies, is 2 hours east, and Jasper, AB is 3.5 hours east and is a very popular destination.
We head into town every couple of weeks and you will be welcome to join us for these trips.
The nearest airport is 1.5 hours away and we would be glad to pick you up from there, as there is no public transit to get to our place.
