We have 2 animals - a dog and a cat - who are very wild/country independent but need feeding etc. Our place is 40 minutes from the city of Nelson and 3 minutes from Winlaw - a funky little town with the basics - organic food store, organic restaurants, metaphysical bookstore, some shops, bakery and more. Walking, biking or Cross-country skiing on the rails trails is fabulous for close-by exercise.

Our home is an 1970s country rancher on 5 acres, furnished simply and very '70s (other than the bathroom that is updated) It is comfortable, 1600 sqft with 3 bedrooms all with brand new queen mattresses. We have kids so there are toys, games and crafting area if you have a family. There is no cable but we have a flat screen TV we plug our computers into to watch movies from the internet. There is WiFi.

Telephone is an internet phone (Magic Jack) that works very well (like a regular phone) and allows free calls to anywhere in North America.

The house is heated with a newly installed heat pump system.

The access is easy and not too far from the main highway. We have a snow blower if it snows heavily while we're gone.
