Warm and welcoming

We got a late start to our travel day and were looking for a last minute place to land that wasn’t too long of a drive. I checked Boondockers Welcome and found the Jarvis home. They promptly answered my request and here we are! My husband and I had a great visit with this sweet couple. We highly recommend this place!

great experience

Friendly, easy to talk to, and engaging. Very accommodating too. A pleasant boondocking experience.

Excellent stay in a quiet place

Thanks so much to Sylvia and her husband for letting us stay at their place. It's been perfect for one night as we were visiting the area over the weekend. The location is very scenic and full of greenery. Very quiet country side road too, perfect for a restful night. Thanks again!

A great first experience!

We had a great time staying at the Jarvis's! It was our first time staying in our new RV and at a Boondockers home. It was so much fun. Sylvia was kind and engaging, making sure we had everything we needed. She generously supplied us with fire wood for the fire ring in her beautiful big backyard as we had a bonfire both nights of our stay. We would definitely book again!

Thanks so much again for a great first experience!

A sweet little get away.

A big Thank You to the Jarvis's for their hospitality. They were very accommodating by allowing us to park our truck beside the Travel Trailer even though we offered to use the alternate driveway. We enjoyed a few kilometers walk on the groomed trail close to their property, and a nice evening of laughs and conversation with a bottle of wine with Sylvia. This was our first Boondockers Welcome stay and what a friendly, welcoming experience it was. This experience has convinced us to try some more location and we cant wait to meet new hosts and experience what they want to share with other Boondockers Welcome members.

Troy & Sylvia are wonderful!

We only had a short stay and the weather didn’t comply, but Troy and Sylvia were wonderful hosts and we would happily stay with them (or host them) again!

Very relaxed atmosphere.

Thank you for your kind hospitality.


April 2019

Thank you

We were greeted by the hosts when we arrived, and they were very relaxed about having people at their property. Later on, we had a nice visit over coffee with the man of the house, as his wife was out for the evening. This worked well for us, and we are grateful for their hospitality and laid back attitude towards the kids. Much better than camping at the local trailer park, which is the only available campground at this time of year.

Hosts were not home but we had a great stay.

Thanks for letting us stay even though you were not going to be there. Sorry we did not get a chance to meet you. Hopefully next time.

Very convenient to the St. Jacobs market, spent several hours and a few $$$ there.

Avery good experience indeed

We were welcomed by the owner who let us park in front of their garage. We were given hydro and a lot of details regarding our trip around the Georgian Bay. We were able to share a few drinks and relate with the current affairs.
In the morning, it was nice to walk the dog on the bicycle path which is just behind the house.
Thank you again for your very good work as hosts.

Great Stay

We had a relaxing stay. Directions were clear. Quiet location once afternoon traffic was over. Slept well - regretted our early departure to make our appointment in Kitchner. Hope to visit again.


June 2018

Nice roomy place.

Really enjoyed talking to the Jarvis.
Thanks for recommendations on where to go and for lending us your pass so we could get in free.
Lovely area and very nice people.

great hosts

The Jarvis were great hosts. Nice long driveway to park in and our hosts could not do enough for us to make our stay a pleasant one. They made us feel welcome and we had a great visit with them with wine, beer and homemade perogies. We would recommend anyone to stay with them.
