    Descrição

    We live year round on a beautiful unspoiled lake in cottage country in northern Ontario, Canada in a 3 storey cottage which I built from scratch back in 1970 when I was fresh out of college. We have been hosting student helpers every summer since 1978 and they are all still part of our ever growing extended family.

    We presently have an opening starting early February 2023 and we prefer long term visitors. We might also entertain the idea of having a second helper for October/November of 2022.

    We have welcomed amazing young men from all over Europe who are non-smokers and eat regular food and enjoy the idea of country living beside an unspoiled and uncrowded lake surrounded by protected forest.

    We have a very large collection of testimonials from helpers which we have been hosting non-stop and back to back since October of 2013 and will be happy to share them with you.

    The record for length of stay has been 6 months at one time and another visitor has returned for three two-month visits. We prefer long term visitors. I have been invited to two future weddings in Europe so far and many of our former visitors have plans to return again.

    We very much have enjoyed the company and the feeling seems to be mutual.

    Our visitors help with household chores such as preparing meals together. Of course we operate like a family and also eat nutritious home cooked meals three times a day at our family dining table.

    We have a very large property with lots of buildings and lots of boats and there is usually something on the "to do list" that needs to be upgraded or repaired so we need someone to "hold the other end of the board" and so on.

    In summer there are boats to bail and in winter there are stairs to clear of snow.

    For fun, there is water-skiing and tubing, swimming, hiking, portaging, fishing, and in winter there is skating, tobogganing, riding the snowmobile. The hot tub and sauna are popular items both winter and summer.

    I would love to have a dialogue with you about visiting here and answer any questions you may have.

    We usually reply to e-mail very promptly - usually within the hour.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    Many people come here with the idea of polishing their English and we are glad to help with that. They usually learn some cooking tips, how to do maintenance on small engines, electrical, plumbing and building projects and other mechanical knowledge.

    Most visitors also learn to water-ski and have opportunities to hike and explore, portaging, go cliff jumping, swimming, learn about saunas and hot tubs and generally have fun.

    We have a long list of testimonials from former international helpers that we can share with you if you are interested.
