    Descripción

    Our family of four moved from Vancouver to Merritt in December 2013. What a change from city life to rural life! Our log cabin sits on 10 acres surrounded by crown land on one side and a cattle ranch on the others. We value the privacy but know that town is a mere 15 minutes drive away. Nestled in a scenic valley with a stupendous view, the trade off is cell phone coverage and internet service. Both are now working but not with metropolitan speed. Presently, we have 4 dogs and 1 horse. After six years, we learned a lot. The property was rarely used in the last couple of decades so we were slowly fixing it up - we knew that when we bought it.

    Walter passed away in September 2019. Callie got herself an apartment in town. Now Zach and I are here (plus his girlfriend).

    I am selling the home and property. Moving will be difficult - literally and figuratively!

    We need some time to process our loss and may need moving help in the spring 2020.

    Thank you all for understanding.

    If you have some of the skills listed below and are interested in coming to Canada to spend time with our family please contact us.
    + In the spring, someone with gardening skills would be a great help with our large garden - weeding and general maintenance. (Some professional landscaping suggestions could really help the overall appearance of our property.)
    + We think we have enough wood for winter 2019.
    + Someone (notice the absence of gender! ;) with cooking and house cleaning skills would really be appreciated!

  • Algo más...

    Algo más...

    Merritt is a small logging, cattle and former mining town with a population of approx. 8,000.
    There is a tremendous sense of community that drew us to the area.
    We drive to town at least twice a week and there is no public transport. We enjoy a relaxed, slow lifestyle.

    The E-bus ride from Vancouver to Merritt usually takes about 4 hours and is very scenic.

    We are NON-vegetarian family.
