House sitting job in Northern BC
Northern BC - Kitimat-Stikine
Looking for someone or a couple who would like to spend the winter in a cozy log house on an acerage in the small, rural community of Rosswood in north western BC. Your own vehicle is recommended as we are 45km from the city of Terrace and 82km from the Shames Mountain ski resort. A short drive north brings you to the Nisga'a Memorial Lava Bed park and the Nass Valley natural hot springs.
There are snowmobiling trails close by as well as places to snow shoe and cross country ski. There is an awesome general store down the road.
No pet care is required. A few plants to water. There is a wood stove and an ATV to plow snow with.
Satellite TV, internet and wifi are available though the internet is not always reliable. There is a local satellite company in the process of installing a new, more reliable internet service . They hope to be online by mid September. There is no cell service but you can text. The store has wifi. WhatsApp works for texting.
Rosswood is situated in the beautiful Kitsumkalum valley surrounded by mountains, rivers and lakes. Population approx.150. Terrace has most amenities.
