We are looking for someone to caretake our house and property this fall. We live in Procter, a small hamlet on the West Arm of Kootenay Lake, about 45 minutes from Nelson, BC. We have a large garden, a small orchard and a small menagerie of animals: 1 elderly cat, 3-8 laying chickens and at the moment 1 goldfish.
At that time of year the garden is still producing quality organic vegetables and there are several apple and pear trees to harvest. You will be welcome to use as much of this produce as you wish. There is a piano in the house and an artist's studio above the garage. There are hiking trails nearby, Kootenay Lake is 1 block away. Procter has a variety of services such as a general store and post office, a voluteer library, chiropracter and hairdresser. Nelson is a small, vibrant city about 35 km away.
Maintenance is fairly minimal: watering garden and houseplants as needed, harvesting, and looking after the chickens, fish and cat.
We are hoping to find someone who would enjoy a month in the country and who will love our property as much as we do.
