We need a house sitter

Thompson Okanagan - Columbia-Shuswap


My recently renovated Shuswap lakefront home is very cozy and comfy, with a beautiful view of the lake. It is a short drive to shop or go to restaurants or theatres. It's just an hour and a bit to four excellent ski mountains: Silver Star, Big White, Revelstoke, and Sun Peaks. I have one delightful cat, a few indoor plants, and while I go east for Christmas with my family I'd appreciate having someone enjoying my home and my pet.,
The view here is gorgeous! You might like to cross-country ski or snowshoe right from my yard, and if the lake is frozen solid, you might even ice skate on it. I have 2 bedrooms and an office with a beautiful view available, and I store my personal things in the remaining bedroom. There's TV, radio, and internet available. a new kitchen, and a gas fireplace in the living room, .
I prefer a non-smoking single or couple with no pets, willing to keep the house in good shape, keep the fallen snow under control (snowblower available), and who will enjoy Purdy, my friendly cat.
It's a lovely home in the small village of Canoe, (pop. 1,000) right next to Salmon Arm and within its city limits (just a 15 min. drive to downtown). Salmon Arm is a city of 20,000 that has everything you need or want, and ranked #1 place to live in BC, and #6 in all of Canada, by McLean's Magazine!
Walking distance is just 5 min. to the the Canoe post office and our great corner store (it's also the liquor store and a cannabis store), that makes delicious deep-fried chicken and yummy pizzas and baking.
Nearby public buses go to and from downtown Salmon Arm every half hour all day. Enjoy a great month of a beautiful winter in an ideally situated, very nicely furnished, warm and pleasant waterfront home!

A wonderful sit from beginning to end! Jan was great to deal with, providing detailed information about everything needed to have a successful sit and also to enjoy everything the area has to offer. Her home is warm and comfortable with the added bonus of being right on the lake! There are great hiking trails and roads to walk/bike nearby and it's only a short drive (or bus ride) to Salmon Arm. But, the star of the show was definitely the marvellous Miss Purdy!! She was an awesome roommate ... MORE
