We have a seasonal fishing resort, which is closed in the winter and we like to get away for awhile so we need house sitters to keep an eye on things and to care for our cat. We are located in the West Chilcotin region of BC, on Nimpo Lake. This is a beautiful location for a couple needing a quiet tranquil environment. It is a lakefront property with gorgeous views. We are currently looking for a COUPLE (no singles please) to house and cat sit. Our home is small and not suited to a family. Dates are from Dec 10 to April 10.
The house is an older log structure that has been renovated and modernized. It is cozy and comfortable, and is heated with a propane furnace and a wood stove. We have satellite wifi, a separate satellite TV, a land line tele , but no cell service. Home owners pay for the tele and long distance and half of the internet cost, and provide the fire wood and snow plowing. House sitters will pay for 1/2 of the internet, satellite tv if they want it, and the electric & propane costs, which can be controlled by moderating use. Estimated $300 per month for everything.
We have a lovely 7 yr old tabby cat who needs a cat loving care giver. MUST enjoy interacting with cat. Our house sitter must enjoy country living and be able to operate wood stoves and enjoy a quiet lifestyle. Must be non smoking/ non vaping/ no drugs/ and have a reliable vehicle. Being comfortable with rural living is essential.
We are located between two small villages, each with small grocery stores, gas, post office and cafes. Beautiful clear blue skies in winter, and spring, great for photography and wild life spotting. Activities include x country skiing, ice fishing, snow shoeing or snowmobiling ing if you have your own machine. Snow shoes provided. Lots of great trails nearby. This is an opportunity to enjoy a tranquil winter in a beautiful setting. There are community activities such as Christmas parties and a New Years party on the ice.
