  • Description

    Description

    We are a happily retired couple, teacher and chef, who are living in a lovely log home, perched above the Athabasca River, with a panoramic view of the Rocky Mountains. We have hosted 2 work away young women who are both coming back to stay as time and the pandemic allow. We are now 70 and would like help with what was previously easy for us to do - yard work, maintaining the logs in the house, small painting projects etc. We think that anybody coming to stay with us will have a good experience as we are used to having young around and enjoy the enthusiasm and energy they bring.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We live on a acreage, about 15 minutes away from Jasper National Park, and about 40 minutes from the townsite. The view from our house is beautiful, and there are numerous, hiking, biking and running trails right out the door. 10 minutes up the road is a world class cross country ski area. In the valley below us is Entrance B and B which provides horse sight seeing trips. We are 10 minutes from Hinton. There is an active indigenous culture here, but with the pandemic, participation in local events is limited. I am a retired teacher and my husband is a chef. We provide meals that are exceptionally appealing. What I think would be especially interesting to an individual would be the location of our house, the surrounding area and Jasper National Park.

    We are looking for someone who is able to maintain the general upkeep around the acreage. For inside chores, we are looking for someone who is able to paint a bathroom, perhaps kitchen as well. We live in a log home and would like to have the logs washed and oiled on the inside and perhaps washed on the outside. We also have a fishing boat hull that my husband needs help in outfitting. Anybody with some carpentry skills would be welcome.

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    We have 2 bedrooms upstairs that are available. You would share the kitchen, living room etc, but have your own room and there is a bathroom upstairs as well. You will share our meals with no cost to you. Occasionally, if we are away, you would make your own.

    There would be plenty of time off, 4 work hours a day, weekends off, would be all we would expect. We also have a car that is available at all times. If you like to hike, bike, ride a horse (at an expense at the B and B) or sight see some of the most beautiful terrain in the world, this is the place to stay.
