    You'll find us on the north shore of Prince Edward Island near beautiful Blooming Point beach just 15 minutes east of Charlottetown. In the aerial view we are the rust coloured buildings partially hidden on the left. Workers can walk to Tracadie Bay and explore the trails and grounds around Glenaladale. Life is good here this Fall as we prepare for winter. Some experience with woods work and knowledge of carpentry is an asset. 2 week maximum. We live on a small patch of land that includes an orchard, garden, 2 acre field in barley with laying hens. Close to nature trail, beautiful beach and Confederation Trail which is part of the Island Walk. Bikes on site, basketball nets for your use along with other recreational equipment. Lovely cabin in the orchard could be used as rough living space during the Summer. Historic property of Glenaladale is in our backyard. There's work all year round so please check us out.
    There's a small cabin that needs interior work before it is habitable during the summer months - perfect location for someone who wants to rough it but this is totally optional. Does this interest you? We'd love someone with carpentry & design skills but there's opportunity to learn as well. Work on my brother's newly planted 500 tree apple orchard will be on day a week. We welcome Workaways who have all their vaccines for the protection of the community.
    The small room has a double bed. No Pets. Smoking/vaping not appreciated near the house. Excellent internet access.

    Housesitting will be needed in 2024 as I have plans to travel for a couple of weeks. I won't be here but work would be laid out in advance. HELP HAS BEEN FOUND. My brother will transport you to his apple orchard at least one day a week for maintenance work.
    Other tasks include work in apple orchard, vegetable garden, lawn cutting, fence staining, painting, housework and feeding Kitty who lives in the garage and hens who are housed in the backyard. There will be plenty of time for your own recreation.

    We have a spacious orchard where a van or trailer could be parked. No access to power or water but there would be internet. That's where the rough cabin is located. Wifi access in the orchard. Photo of cabin is included.
