We have a seasonal fishing resort, which is closed in the winter. It is located in the West Chilcotin region of BC, on Nimpo Lake. This is a beautiful location for anyone needing a quiet tranquil environment. It is a lakefront property with gorgeous views and fun winter recreation.

We are looking for someone  to house/pet sit for us this winter from mid January until mid April. Those dates are flexible, and could start or end sooner if the applicant desires. We must have a guaranteed stay once a commitment is made.

The house is an older log structure. It is cozy and comfortable, and is heated with two wood stoves that have to be fed daily (just like the cat). We have satellite wifi, a separate satellite TV, a land line tele , but no cell service. We ask that the house sitter shares in the cost of electricity and internet, which amounts to about $200 per month. The owners will pay for the tele  , half the internet, and will pay for snow plowing, and provide all fire wood.

We have a lovely 5 yr old tabby cat who need a cat loving care giver. MUST enjoy interacting with cat. Our house sitter must enjoy country living and be able to operate wood heat, and be healthy enough to re-stock wood from outdoors to inside, as needed. They must also monitor the water system  weekly, which is a simple set up. Someone with general repair knowledge is best, since there is always a chance that something can require fixing. There will be some snow to shovel just to enter the house, although most of it is plowed. Must be non smoking/ no drugs/ and have own vehicle that is good in the snow. If not, it may be possible to use our old truck. The highway is kept clear so travel to the stores is easy.

We are located between two small villages, each with small grocery stores, gas, post office and cafes. Great cross country skiing, snow shoeing, ice fishing. Beautiful clear blue skies in winter, great for photography and wild life spotting.  You can view our place at or on our facebook site, nimpo lake resort.
