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 to house and cat sit from Mid November 2020 to early April 2021, dates are flexible.
The house is an older log structure but many rooms have been renovated. 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. The wood heat makes the propane costs low. 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.
