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. We like to get away in the winter and need a caretaker. This is a beautiful location for writers, artists, or anyone needing a quiet tranquil environment. It is a lakefront property with gorgeous views.
Our dates are flexible. In we are hoping to be away for shorter periods rather than the entire winter. We are looking for someone to stay from late September to early November (about 6 weeks). Then we will be looking for someone from mid January until late March or early April, dates may vary.
The house is an older log structure. It is cozy and comfortable, but not a new home. It is heated with two wood stoves that have to be fed daily (just like the cat). It has wifi, satellite TV, and internet, plus a land line, but no cell service. We ask that the house sitter shares in these costs, and pays their own hydro.
We have a 5 year old cat who needs a loving care giver. Our house sitter must enjoy country living and be able to operate wood heat, monitor the water system, and shovel show. Must be non smoking/ no drugs/ and have own vehicle that is good in the snow.
We are located between two small villages, each with small grocery stores, gas, post office and cafes.
