NOTE: Unfortunately Canada has closed its borders until this virus is under control. We can therefore no longer receive anybody from outside the country for the time being.

We live on 7 hectares of land,(16.5 acres) with a forest, an apple orchard and a small private lake. The property is situated in the Laurentian mountains 45 minutes north of Montreal.
We speak French, English and a bit of Spanish. We are married and both in our 60's.
Francine is a potter and I'm a musician. We have a fully equipped pottery studio and a music room. Francine also teaches pottery.

The closest large town is St-Jerome which is 10 minutes away. There are suburban trains and buses to Montreal from there on a regular basis.

We have one private bedroom and bathroom with shower available. There is also a separate entrance. We are looking for a fairly strong single person of any gender.

We could use some help with the collection of firewood as well as some tree transplanting and gardening. All firewood is from uninhabited dead trees on the property.

Reasonable physical strength and autonomous mobility are necessary. The help involves pushing a wheelbarrow containing cut logs from the forest to the house and then stacking them. Splitting logs is an option. Transplanting small spruce trees and some gardening are also involved. The hours are very flexible.

We also offer transportation to the train and bus station which is 15 minutes away..

We look forward to hearing from you,
Bill and Francine
