  • Description


    We are a busy family with 3 children living on 3 lakefront acres.

    Other perks- You are welcome to borrow our boats to get there by water (about 5 min kayak paddle, then 5 min walk) across the lake. Walking is about 15 min, hitching is super easy, or via bike it is about 7 min (we have bikes for lending). It is about 1.5 km away to the cafe, natural food co-op, Friday market, etc located in Manson's Landing.We also have a wood fired hot tub we fire on a weekly basis for all to enjoy.

    Please contact us to clarify any of the above or to see if we might be a good fit for one another. Cortes is a truly wonderful place to check out and we hope to be able to introduce you to this magical place we call home.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Our location is very unique, especially as a window into West Coast lifestyle and culture. We use many "fruits of the earth" in our day to day living. We have lived in multiple countries ourselves and love the opportunities sharing our home and space with folks form other cultures provides. Aaron is a sawmiller and we have a nice big garden and are happy to share knowledge of both of these things.

    We are developing a family owned property to provide food and sustenance for our family and guests - and are doing so through a permaculture lens.

    Projects are based on the skill sets of the folks visiting at the time and our work schedules. Additional work time can involve hanging out with our family (including our kids) and participating in making things/ selling at the local farmer's market. In our other hosting situations people loved being with our children and this worked quite well for us. We keep it balanced between gardening and kid time and are receptive to your input. Our kids love sports, art, music, and dance.

    Some recent folks said we should have something explicit about the amount of work, etc. We ask for 5 hours a day 5 days a week. We are flexible if folks want a different arrangement and appreciate flexibility if we are having a particularly big day and need extra help. We allow for free time to enjoy your surroundings and folks have told us that they really appreciated the balance of the experience we provide here.

  • Hébergement


    We have a private accomodation with shared kitchen for folks in a camper/ trailer. There is wifi at the trailer as of May 2021. We take turns cooking meals depending on the comfort level of our guests cooking for large groups. Everyone participates in mealtime in one way or another- prepping, helping watch kids if Jeramie (the mom) is cooking, clean up, etc. Food is a very important aspect of our lives and we are told it is quite tasty. Breakfast is self catered with groceries we provide. Other basics are also provided should we mutually decide to eat separately.
