What your guests will love about your neighborhood
<p>Our house is in Burton, in the central part of Arrow Lakes area, Kootenay region in British Columbia, and the exchange to this location will appeal the most to people seeking outdoor activities or just wish to slow down, turn off the cell phone and take a rest. </p><p>Burton (pop. approximately 300) is very small community with virtually no services (no gas, no store), just tiny post office. That means there are no clubs, pubs, restaurants, cinemas, bowling, music/dance halls or any other city-life goodies. </p><p>Fauquier (pop. approximately 400) is 22km SOUTH from Burton and it has gas station and small corner store. </p><p>Nakusp (pop. approximately 1600) is 45km NORTH from Burton and it has all basic services, including gas and well stoked store. </p><p>This region is perhaps the most know for its hot springs (developed and undeveloped), hiking, fishing, camping, heli-skying, wildlife. </p><p>Consider this exchange only if you are an independent, outdoor oriented and if you enjoy and respect country lifestyle. </p><p><b>Keep in your mind that you can't get here or to be here without a car. </b>

We travel frequently and extensively + we are very flexible when it comes to travel dates and arrangements.
Consequently, it is pointless to even attempt to record into a on-line calendar periods for which our various properties are available for an exchange or hosting. Please, share with us your plans and wishes and we will respond on individual bases.
Please, keep in your mind that we may be traveling in a location with limited internet access, that means, you may have to wait a few days for an answer. Rest assured that we do our best to check e-mails as frequently as possible, and that we answer all received notes promptly.
