  • Descripción


    We are Gwen and Rocky. We have a couple of spare rooms and love meeting new people. We sometimes use our space for short-term Airbnb rentals but the tourist season is short here. We've had pretty clear goals for this property for the four years that we've owned here but now have had some significant life changes that require refocusing on basic upkeep and daily maintenance. We both work seasonal jobs, Gwen works from home 3 days a week and Rocky is a lobster fisherman in April and May. Hosting is a way to share our home and lives with like-minded people in exchange for help. Please note that we have two young dogs.
    Also, we would be interested in a much longer stay with the right person or couple.

    This is a traditional maritime rural community. We enjoy kitchen parties and meals on the shore during cooperative weather.
    If you are here for an extended length of time, we could arrange for a trip to the Cabot Trail if you are interested.

    We have a family homestead with a few chickens, and vegetables. You can't see it from our house, but you can hear and smell the Atlantic Ocean less than 1000m away. We are looking for general assistance, it is mostly inside cleaning, organizing and cooking help in the winter months and outside help depending on the season and could include: tending the gardens, cutting/splitting/stacking wood, planting trees, clearing old farm scrap from the woods, cutting trails and building/renovating outdoor buildings.

  • Alojamiento


    We share our life and home. We are omnivores, our big meals are together, everyone helps with prep and cleanup. Taking a turn at preparing a meal for the group is encouraged. Breakfasts and lunches are more casual, you may get your own or take turns preparing it, always mindful that you're responsible for any mess you make.
    We have 2 spare bedrooms and all share 1 bathroom.
    We are tidy and like things kept that way, including your personal space. We prefer that bedroom doors are left open when you're not in them, so that the hall receives light and a cross breeze in the summer. Our house is on display at all times, ready for guests, etc.

    We don't have a dedicated space for someone permanently, but they would have suitable internet and we could put a desk in the bedroom.
