Stephen is a good host, likes to chat, watch movies, use the hot tub and is a practitioner and encourager of skinny dipping. The work mainly involves cooking, washing dishes, taking care of Juneau (the smartest dog in the world), chop wood and prepare for road trips. Sometimes the experience was a challenge for me because of the house cleaning and some unwanted animals, but that didn't stop me from enjoying and appreciating a simpler life connected with nature, visit astonishing places and improve my English. Thank you Stephen for having me in your home and sharing your knowledge with me!

Stephen is a great host and Yukon is a beautiful place. The work is simple and it benefits you as well. We have done fun activities, from movies to amazing roadtrips. I've seen wildlife and the Northern Lights. It's definitely an experience I recommend. Thank you Stephen and Juneau for everything, hope to see you again in the future! :)

My experience with Stephen was wonderful and unforgettable. The house is simple and surrounded by nature, in 3 minutes walking you arrive at the Lake which has an incredible view. Stephen is a person with a giant heart, has a lot to knowledge about the local history, and is very pacient to talk (which made a big difference for me because I don't speak English very well). We visited many different places, swan in Hot Springs, and we had a great time around the campfire and watching movies. I had the opportunity to see bears and many other animals. I will take this experience with me always <3

A really great stay in a great place! There are many fun adventures, but also lots of learning about sustainability and life off the grid. Work is very minimal, but you never feel bored. Stephen is a great host and goes out of his way to make the experience memorable.
