  • Description


    We are a remote homestead and can offer wilderness adventure! We would love to show our Canadian hospitality to anyone in need of a place to stay on their travels! Our homestead journey began almost four years ago when we purchased land from C.N rail which was used as a ballast pit in the early 1900's. A growing family of 4, we have 3 large dogs who guard our flock of chickens, a jersey cow, and her calf. This summer we are planning a self sufficient garden, there is lots of fresh food to come as well as processing to do for winter consumption. We are in the process of building a wraparound deck, milling 1x10 lumber for board and batten siding, and fencing in our garden.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We love conversations during our meals and we love strong coffee! These are great opportunities to share stories and past experiences, what better time than when satisfying your appetite! We also usually have a large family meal with our extended family at least once a week. Our most abundant resource here is fresh water, there are so many beautiful lakes to visit, fish, swim, or just sit and enjoy. Must love nature! We are living off grid with the intent of still enjoying the use of appliances (like dishwasher, washer and dryer etc.) its all a balance.

    We have something for all abilities! From simple everyday chores to milling up lumber with the sawmill we have a large diversity of work available. If you're into cooking and housekeeping you can do that or if you'd rather be outdoors that's fine too! Its best to do what you're good at :) Our expectations will vary depending on your experience and enthusiasm. There's a lot of straightforward tasks to do but if you're bored with that stuff there's more that requires experience and knowledge (milling lumber with our sawmill, building, fencing, running equipment etc.)

  • Hébergement


    We have Starlink internet. Your accommodations are a newly built 12x12 cabin with a very comfortable bed, and a new outhouse. It has a queen-sized bed, a tiny woodstove, a small dresser and desk. Its small but clean and relaxing, with a nice view of the pond out the window! There is a little deck attached with two chairs to enjoy your morning coffee.
    You can take a shower in the house. We do need our private time during evening hours but are very welcoming and enjoy company.

    Autres infos...

    We are fairly remote here, no public transport so you would need a vehicle to get here, alternatively there is a bus that travels to the nearest town (Atikokan) where we can pick up/drop off, we could also arrange to pick up at the nearest city (Thunder Bay) if we have advance notice. There is a lot of good fishing and hiking here, trails to explore. We have a bounty of wildlife! There are several abandoned mine sites that are interesting to visit, and Quetico Provincial park is a short drive away. Our nearby community is the canoeing capital of Canada, and as so there are many lakes and rivers to enjoy! I enjoy horseback riding, walks through the forest, sewing, baking and much more. We are both outdoors people and our little ones like to be out in the fresh air! You would be welcome to join us on our outings to town to buy supplies, check the mail, attend church, volunteer, etc.
