    Description

    We added a new puppy to our family in mid December 2021. A Newfoundlander named Grizz. We are looking for somebody to help care for the puppy and help with training while we head back to work/ school. Looking to host an individual or a couple. We can always use help around the house- cooking, cleaning as well as some smaller building projects. You will now have your own mini kitchen and sitting area downstairs in addition to a bedroom and bathroom and access to laundry and a workout area.

    We are a busy family of 6. Myself, my husband, and our 4 children; son age 6, daughter age 12 and sons age 14 and 16.
    As a family we love the outdoors and enjoy fishing, hunting, boating, dirt biking, snowmobiling, sledding and exploring new places. We have 2 cats and 2 dogs. My daughter also has two horses. We built our dream home on 15 acres which attaches to our families 1300 acre cattle ranch. We enjoy getting to meet new people and learn about their cultures. We have already formed some amazing bonds through workaway and hope to make some more lifelong friends. My husband is a full time farmer and logger and I work five days a week at the elementary school in Town. Therefor guests must be independent and comfortable spending some time on their own. We are looking to host people who want to come check out a beautiful new area in exchange for some help around our home and yard. We are easy going and We enjoy sharing our home with people who bring laughs, good times, new ideas and a willingness to help out.

    8 years ago we built our dream timber frame home however there are still lots of little projects in the house and yard that just never got done.

    We can always use extra help around the house with cleaning and we greatly appreciate when our workawayers cook for us as we love trying new meals from around the world. Weeding in the garden and help with basic lawn care is always on going as well. We have horses, chickens, a large dog, small dog and cats in addition to the cows. Sometimes help caring for the animals is required.

    Willingness to take on small projects around the home and yard.
    Some examples of projects on our to do list that we’d love help with include...
    - lawn work- weeding, gardening, basic landscaping
    - create a fun/ practical outdoor oasis in our covered deck area
    We are also looking for somebody who is good with children/ teens who is willing to get to know our kids and help them learn about other parts of the world by sharing your culture and experience with them. Be willing to have fun and play.

    We love adventure and hope you're able to create some fun and bring some new experiences to us as well. While you are staying at our home we will treat you like another member of our family and will expect help with cleaning up after meals and that you keep your area clean and tidy as well.

    We have a large, custom, three story timber frame house located in a remote area 10 minutes from a small town. Therefore it is an added bonus if you have your own transportation as there is no public transit here or if you just love being among nature away from the busy city life then our place is for you. We have a (nearly) finished basement with a bedroom furnished for your comfort. (2 to choose from!) as well as a bathroom for your use. We now have a sitting area with couch and TV and a small kitchenette area with bar fridge and single stove burner, microwave, toaster and coffee pot. We will provide you with your food however appreciate help with some meal planning and preparation. Most days you will have to prep your own breakfast and lunch as we are working however we always have big family dinners together when we are all home. Guests must be ok with spending some time alone as my husband and I both work and the children attend school.

    We are near Wells Gray Provinical park which has many beautiful waterfalls and great hiking trails. We have many lakes close for your enjoyment. We live in the country side. In the winter there is snowshoeing, cross country skiing, ice fishing, snowmobiling and sledding. We look forward to meeting New people, providing our kids with an opportunity to learn about cultures and different parts of the world. We expect that people staying in our home are kind, good with children, willing to help out and act as an additional member of our family while here. Must be able to self entertain and be comfortable spending some time alone as we are on the go a lot. Our place is ideal for somebody looking for an experience with a true Canadian Family. The more you do for us- the more we will do for you.
