We are in beautiful South West Nova Scotia. We are in the Acadian region of Nova Scotia.

Lisa works, full time so we need help around the house and yard and help taking care and cleaning our chickens. My husband is also limited in his physical capabilities.

Spring and Summer is always the busiest time but there is always something to do all year long.

Duties can include but not limited to:

-painting
-cooking
-barn chores
-carpentry
-cleaning
-gardening
-splitting firewood
-making soap

and whatever else needs done at the time. We would expect 4 -6 hours of work per day. We would like you to stay a minimum of one week.Some days there might be not much to do. Some days we will need your help for more than 4-6 hours. It all depends on the jobs and the weather.

We will provide you with a warm, cozy bedroom with a shared bathroom, 3 meals a day and access to the internet.

Depending on the time of year, we'll even show you the local sights! (Not too much to see in the winter.)



Please respect our home by not smoking, drinking or drug use.

We also speak French.

We're look forward to meeting new people.
