The host commuicated quickly, provided very detailed instructions and met us when we arrived. Very friendly and accommodating. The place itself is beautiful. We chose to stay at their site along the water's edge as we didn't require hookups. The Wi-Fi was wonderful to have, thanks and hope to stay there again in the future.
Very nice people and an extremely nice, spot, well worth the drive
The host was friendly, helpful, and was to be commended for creating such a nice place to stay.
The location was excellent. We were in a nice treed field with 30 amp power, which we really appreciated and water was available for us too. The quiet was great. We were somewhat near the lake, so we sat outside and enjoyed the ambiance.
Especially noted was the quality of the wifi. We were 300 yards from his house and the signal was better than my signal at home! How he managed that, I'll likely never know.
Overall, A+. Thanks.
Can't say enough about this beautiful location. The services provided was great. Deer abound the area. Sun Rises and Sunsets are spectacular.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Ranch and it’s peaceful setting by the lake. Thank you to great host Don!
Fabulous getaway for us.so peaceful. Owner met and chatted with us. Simply a great quiet place thanks so much
Beautiful setting and we feel so grateful that we get to stay there as we travel through Canada. Very friendly and accommodating hosts. Thanks again!
What a wonderful location and host. The description sounded too good to be true but if anything the description doesn't do it justice. This is such a beautiful place. We were parked higher up the property for access to power but you can park close to the beach if you want. Both areas are beautiful.
In addition to the beach (and fire pit) there is a rocky point where you can watch the sunset. We spent three nights and were visited by deer outside our trailer each morning. Directions were perfect, and access to the spot was easy.
Host Don was incredibly helpful and kind. This location is one of the most enjoyable places we've stayed.
We were warmly welcomed and cared for. Beautiful, peaceful location.
I met the hosts’ friend as they were in town. He showed me various places where I coul stay and I choose close to the beach. It was a beautiful place to let my cat roam about and to watch the water and sun set. I had a fabulous sleep; so quiet, dark and tranquil. I will definitely stay here again next year on my way back from the Yukon. 😃👍
The host was very friendly helpful. Made us really feel at home. Had a lovely private beachfront setting complete with firepit and wood. Woke to see a family of deer within 30 meters of our camper. Would highly recommend you visit if you are in the area. Would definitely stay again.
What a beautiful property, thanks for an enjoyable stay at your place. Helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Will stay again when we're though the area.
We enjoyed our three nights here. Peace and quiet and so many deer. Enjoyed swimming in Muriel Lake.
What an amazing location, this truly is a paradise. We totally enjoyed being here, from canoeing to paddle boarding, fishing to swimming, this location has so much to offer. Heart felt thanks to our host for letting us stay even while they were not here. We wish them all the best.
A beautiful place to park and recharge! If you dont need power, you will be overlooking the lake. Peaceful, and about a 25 minute drive to Kenora.
Our host was very accommodating and easy to talk with. Glad we stopped!😃
Three deers came to check us out in the morning, loon was calling the night. The Ranch is a beautiful place to stay at with hydro, water and wifi.
Thank you donrita for your hospitality.
We will definitely be back on our return trip - a gorgeous waterfront spot on the lake all to ourselves. We truly appreciated the warm welcome and that you checked on us when the storm rolled in. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous Ranch with us and the RV community.
These are the nicest people you will ever meet
Go out of their way to make you feel welcome and keep it quiet as well
I'll go back!!!!
Believe the other reviews on here; D and R's 20 lakeside acres is just heavenly. We enjoyed ample electricity, water, and excellent wifi! Turn it off, though, and head down to the rocky little peninsula on the lake. Sit on the old yet perfectly constructed Adirondack chair and just take in the peaceful calm of the lake. A big snapper turtle may just come greet you... or a bald eagle... or a pelican... or deer... or the local flock of geese. One of us snorkeled right there around the rocks--this was just an amazingly restorative stop along our eastward route to PEI! D even quickly sent us a link to a free dump site as we were leaving. Special thanks to R, who took time to fix our camper steps the first evening! Highly recommend this fabulous stay. Thank you again!
Our hosts were more then great. Just to let people stay in such a beatiful place is very generous.
Stayed again at this perfect camping spot on a lake. Easygoing, friendly host. Looking forward to next trip and park there again.
Don and Rita were supper nice and accommodating. We requested our overnight stay very late in the day (our fault), but they accepted right away. Gave very detailed instructions on how to get there. The place is absolutely gorgeous, one of the highlights of our trip. Nice lake side stay. Kids and adults had a good swim in the lake. Gorgeous sun set. Highly recommend - wonderful folks and place!
We love this place and the hosts are so very kind. Always a highlight of our trip to stay here.
Beautiful location, very accommodating hosts and easy access. The lake was clean and warm and the property immaculate. It had just rained hard and ground was soft in some areas so we left some ruts behind. The property owners were helpful and understanding. We would definitely recommend it!!
This ranch on the lake ( we stayed a night near the little peninsula that gave a peace and rest) is beautiful and so are the hosts who worked with our changing schedule and hosted us depaite pressing personal matters they had to attend to. Very kind. You are in our prayers.
Great hosts with an awesome location on Muriel lake. Cannot thank you enough for the help and look forward to seeing you in the Okanagan
Amazing spot for Boondocking with an excellent host. Worth the 10k drive off #17. If you're feeling fatigued 15 more mins. to recharge. Lake site sunset and the only noise is birds and lapping waves.
The best boondocking site we have ever stayed in. Paradise. Heaven on earth. We swam in the lake and watched the majestic sunset on the privately owned point. Donnrita could not have been kinder. We will definitely be back.
We so very much enjoyed our stay here. We had our canoe so were able to canoe and fish as well as swim off the rocks with perfect summer temperature Water. Our hosts were gracious and helped find a spot just right for us
What a wonderful hello, help to park on the site and not at all upset that we are doing long days and just made sunset. Would recommend, nice to be off the beaten track a little bit.
Loved our time there. Beautiful location especially to be during a heat wave! Friendly, so helpful host. All the amenities too, with water, electricity, septic...
Was a beautiful stay... guided right to our spot Thank you so much. Hope to see you on our way home
Was nice to meet a couple and their cute little one as well
We can’t thank Don and Rita enough. What a beautiful serene spot. They might very well be stuck with us as repeat dockers!! See you next week.
Wonderful describes both location and host! Thanks for the technical help with the trailer water heater.
Incredible host, hospitality and beautiful location! Host is so kind, welcoming, accessible, flexible, and helpful…i just can’t say enough!
This is our all time favourite BDW location!
The Hosts are friendly but leave us alone to do our own thing!
Easy to find with concise and accurate directions!
This is a serene and tranquil lakeside property with great campsites and room to spread out our stuff!
Thank you so much for welcoming us back!
Rob and Jean R. Alberni Falls
We can't say enough how much we enjoyed our stay. Beautiful property, great hosts! Free wifi everywhere! What a great place. A major thanks to donnrita!
Amazing Host...most accommodating... feel very welcome
Paddled on beautiful lake, enjoyed a fabulous sunset
One of a kind Generosity!
Wow! Really nice place, the spot everyone dreams! Quiet, by the lake, sandy beach, warm water perfect for swimming and kayaking! The kids just loved the place and could also play with the neighbours! Really nice people too! We stayed one more night at the end! Really enjoyed! Definitely come back again! Thanks for receiving us!
This was our first ever Boondocking experience and we certainly hit the jackpot! Just a lovely spot with welcoming hosts! The views on the water are spectacular!
The host is very accommodating and friendly. The location is fantastic. Almost too good to be true. Only, it's true!
I will stay here everytime I am in Kenora area. Lovely place and the best hosts!
An absolute utopia full of stunning views and sounds of nature, and welcoming and kind hosts. I feel incredibly lucky to have experienced the magic. Highly, highly recommended!
The host was exceptionnel. Went over and above his rôle.
We had trouble with our truck, he was very helpful and agreed to let us stay another night.
The place was peaceful nice beach.
I highly recommend a stay for a couple of days.
Would stay again.
We greatly appreciate all the help you have given us.
Welcoming, kind and generous. They have a beautiful lake front property. Would stay again :)
Very helpful and friendly host
Incredibly beautiful property with great swimming spot
Just a few minutes away from the Highway
We loved our stay here, Thanks again.
..... To not visit this place. Interesting and excellent host, be sure to ask him about the locksmith lawyer 😁. The site is simply beautiful, be sure to find a spot by the water. Thank you kindly for an excellent stay.
Truly a piece of heaven. Thank you to our very kind hosts for our beautiful stay.
I have no word to say the happiness I felt in this place. it was perfect. the breeze, the sound of the loonie, the view, the owners so nice. I would still be staying. thank you for everything
This 2 night stay was exceptional!
Our Hosts could not have been more hospitable, and with a warm welcome and wonderful conversation. The property was paradise! Serene, clean, & green with nature abounding. We stayed 2 nights and made 2 new friends! We will be back!
From the warm welcome, beautiful site for our 25’ TT on the beach to the amazing views and sunsets, this is a place you won’t want to leave. Recommended without hesitation and looking forward to stopping in again.
Warm welcome. Quiet place by a lake. Host prepared a special spot with a fire pit on the sandy beach. Good wifi available. What else could you ask for? :) Thank you for sharing your little paradise.
What an absolute pleasure to be allowed to stay at such a beautiful location. So grateful for the generosity and hospitality of the hosts. Truly the purest of humans. Thank you so much and I hope our paths cross again.
We’ve had a long journey from BC to Ontario, moving my son and his family home. We are very grateful to have has this little break from our journey to let my little grandchildren play for a couple of days. This host has a beautiful spot that melts the stress of the trip right away! He made sure we had what we needed and is very kind! Thank you so much for allowing us to stay again on our return home!
Thanks again donnrita for letting me stay. It was a great way to unwind after the last several days of long driving.
We came this way heading East, and now the same again going west. As I said, if you read our review of July 2020 you'll know why we couldn't resist another stay with Donnrita! Simply great!
Wow! We are new to Boondockerswelcome, and this far exceeded expectations! The host was very welcoming. A little piece of paradise. Thank you so much for your hospitality!
This was my second stay at "The Ranch". It was again perfect for my travel. Good power and great beautiful location.
If I could stay the whole Summer....I would! Deer, birds, and so much more! So lovely.
The Ranch is not far from the Trans-Canada highway and is easily accessible.
Our 26 foot trailer was easily parked and maneuvered in the spaces that are available in this picturesque location.
The host was friendly and very helpful.
This is our second time here at this fabulous location. Beautiful sunsets on the lake that matched the great friendly hosts. We were still able to have a conversation social distancing with the host. Very friendly, easy to talk to and made you feel welcome even durkng Covid. This is what boondockers is all about. Thank you
One of the best spot we have seen., with an Amazing view.
Would return anytime
The hosts were so helpful welcoming us at the end of their road at night when we arrived after a long day of travel. They set us up with water and electrical which was greatly appreciated. The property was beautifully situated on a lake with lots
Of deer close by. Thanks again!
Very gracious hosts! Super accommodating - we arrived after dark and Don came on his ATV to greet us and guide us in from the main road! Thanks so much for making our Kenora stop so memorable and comfortable! See you again in the spring!
We enjoyed our second visit as much as the first. With snow and cool weather we experienced a winter wonderland. This host is so generous and kind, thank you!!
A very comfortable stay after a days drive. The host was not home when I arrived but did leave detailed instructions in the confirmation email. I was able to pull in and set up.
My furnace decide to quit shortly thereafter so I call my host to let him know that I was going in to town to grab a room for the night.
Instead he brought over two electric heaters which kept me toasty that night, next day I bought two of my own.
I have been having difficulty with my tow vehicle, undersized and front wheel drive so on departure day the host checked my tires for air pressure, topped up all that need it and pulled my car and trailer onto firm ground so I could get underway.
Will seek to stay there again on my return, God willing.
Unfortunately the hosts had to leave before we got there but there was alot of communication back and forth. Very conscious hosts. Location was amazing.
View of the amazing lake, saw deer and got an awesome picture of a porcupine. 30 amp service was greatly appreciated in below freezing weather. Thank you. Thank you, Thank you
Hopefully our paths will cross again.
Virginia and Bob
It is always great to stay at the Ranch. Very nice place. Host was absent but sent us the information. There was another camper. Sleep very well. Place is so quiet. Thanks for sharing your paradise.
Our stay on the ranch was amazing! We met one of the hosts at his house and he led us to our spot on the beach. We were provided firewood and enjoyed a fire in the evening on the beach. It was quite windy but that didn’t stop us from enjoying the beauty of our surroundings. There were many deer that our cats were very interested in. When I opened the blinds in the morning, the first thing I saw was deer. We look forward to visiting again on our way back from BC. Hopefully we will get a chance to visit more and exchange stories with the hosts.
Loves this beautiful spot on the water and The hosts were very kind and helpful as we are newbies to the RV life 🥰
We stayed in the beach overlooking the lake. Our host personally guided us to a level spot, there was a fire pit and firewood awaiting us. Thank you!
The generosity of this host and the beautiful lake front makes this Boondocking experience Unforgettable. We enjoyed a fireside on the beach with fall colours and migrating birds honking overhead.Donhrita provide a unique boondocking experience to remember.
Great host, very friendly and helpful with a beautiful place! I’m sure we will be back.
Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to stay on your beautiful land. We enjoyed the conversation and bonfire, the morning is one for our memory books.
Craig and Crystal
Thank you so very much. Should have stayed 2 days! You have the perfect property with level parking, great view of the water, a beautiful rock island to walk around.
This place is just amazingly beautiful and so peaceful. We really enjoyed the beach and watching the birds and the beautiful sunset. The property is huge and incredibly well kept and cared for. There are a variety of areas to camp out, We chose the northern sites so as to have access to power. We met the Host briefly and he was genial and pleasant. With power, water and a beach, this Boondocker's Welcome location is incredible.
Large lake property beautiful setting. Was met by the host (very friendly and helpful) and shown the various areas to park. Watch for deer crossing the roads. Overall great experience!
Super site in a beautiful and quiet setting. Super nice host. Will be back
We appreciated our stay. Lovely place, great hosts. We saw few deers in morning and afternoon. Thanks for sharing your great place
Real paradise in a wonderful region! Amazing hosts with a nice setting and peaceful place by a lake. Very welcoming, friendly and generous hosts. We had a great time biking and exploring the region. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you donnrita!
Our hosts are very friendly and welcoming persons and their property is so nice. It was our first time boondocking and it will be hard to do better.
Thank you for everything
Definitely worth staying here again! We’ll request this spot again if we’re coming this way again. Thanks for the beautiful spot and generous hosting!
Beautiful view and quiet location. Very generous hosts to share their beautiful property!
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Ranch. Your property is top shelf. The beach and island were a big hit with the family. We will try to get this spot on the way home next month. Super big Thank You to our hosts. :) :)
What a great spot this is; right on a lake. Very peaceful and quiet. Got the best sleep of our trip so far. Thanks Don n Rita for your hospitality, even though you were away.
Thank you once again for your hospitality! It was nice chatting with you.
You have a beautiful and very peaceful little piece of paradise.
Love the rock island - very photogenic!
PS - I think we were up before the rooster!
Words can scarcely express how delighted we were with our stay! We parked right on the beach and enjoyed the quiet lake, bird calls, beautiful sunset, cozy fire, and lovely moon reflecting off the water. This is definitely a highlight of our trip out to BC from Ontario! Hoping to stay here again! Our host was helpful and generous beyond our expectations. Thank you!
What a glorious stop on our way back home. We were grateful for the hosts to allow us for 2 nights where we enjoyed some R&R. The sunsets were magnificent as was the peninsula were we swam in the lake. We wish we met the hosts as they have gone out of their way to make our stay enjoyable - very generous folks!
Lovely place to stay. Lush grass lawn leading down to a beautiful lake with a private little peninsula. The electrical hookups and hoses were very convenient for our little 2-RV convoy. Would recommend! 10/10!
We stayed at this beautiful property with our 30 ft motorhome for five days. We had the choice of full hook-up under trees or boondocking right at the lake and we chose the latter. We had wifi and an ample amount of fire wood. We had lots of privacy and it was very quiet and relaxing.
Unfortunately, we did not get to meet our generous hosts since they were camping themselves at that time but communication before and throughout our stay was effortless.
This host has GREAT communication!
The place is a hidden paradise seriously!
Although they were not home on our stay we will be leaving tomorrow to head on our trip as they graciously let us stay the storm coming in
From the little island to water and hydro available this place had everything!
We hope to visit on our way back from B.C. in a few weeks.
Thank you so much for making our first Boondocking a great one!
Donnrita was a fantastic host.
He helped us setup and provided everything they need for a wonderful campfire by the Beach. We had excellent conversation as well.
Our stay exceeded are expectations. I highly recommend.
If we ever find ourselves in the area again, we'll definitely request another stay.
We had a great overnight stay at The Ranch, and while we unfortunately did not get to meet our hosts as they were away, they made us very welcome. And their friend who was staying on the property was super helpful directing us to the right place to park, and getting blocks and the electrical cord for us!
It would be great to see them out in BC!
Keith and Robyn
Unfortunately the owners weren't there but a friend of theirs helped us get setup. The place is just amazing beautiful and so peaceful. We really enjoyed ourselves sitting on the beach and watching the birds and then the beautiful sunset. Highly recommend this to anyone. I wish we could've met the owners because everyone says such good things about them. Maybe next time.
Not only is Don's place absolutely gorgeous (truly a slice of heaven), but he is honestly one of the nicest, most hospitable people we've met on our journey. While we're full-timers, we're pretty new to the game so when we pulled up, he raced to help us get levelled and was beyond kind. We enjoyed our conversations and laughs with him and would absolutely recommend his place (and will probably come visit him again at some point!). Thank you Don so much, you truly are a gem of a human being!
Another wonderful stay at a beautiful location with generous and welcoming hosts!
Probably the nicest spot we've stopped at. Really helpful hosts and a very peaceful beautiful location. We even saw baby deer.!
The Ranch is absolutely beautiful!! The hosts are super friendly and welcoming opening their gorgeous property up for use. You can swim at their beachfront or have a fire in the beach fire pit. We were in a spacious area amongst the trees with two other Boondockers. We had access to water, wifi and electricity...they even have hoses, extension cords and sturdy boards available for use if needed. Amazing hosts and an amazing property!
We booked here again after a restful 2 night first stay. We enjoyed the tranquil atmosphere and beautiful well groomed grounds. This time round the weather was hot and breezy so we took advantage of their beach. Thankyou so much D&R for your warm welcome and hospitality. Thankyou for bending over backwards in helping us set up later in the evening. Highly recommend The Ranch when passing through Kenora , Ontario
We've been using BoondockersWelcome for some time (what a great idea!) so we've visited quite a few hosts. All have been amazing, but this was by far the best! You couldn't possibly ask for a better experience. We cooled off with 30 amp power, swam in the lake, enjoyed the WiFi and unlimited water supply, lolled under the shade trees, watched the deer in the front "yard", and were looked after by the most generous and kind gentleman you could wish for! What a treat! You could stay in a provincial park for anywhere from 30 to 90 dollars, and not even have services. Pinch me!
Dennis and Pamela (hoping we return this way).
Don was great, helped us get set up quickly. Very friendly and accommodating. Beautiful experience, a deer came right up to our trailer. Easy to find and would certainly return again!
My wife and I were packing up this morning getting ready to leave after a nice couple of days spent at this hosts lovely property when we noticed a major problem with the back of our trailer. The back wall had started to separate! I started in on a quick repair, then went up to the house to let them know we would be a bit late departing. The host came down to see if we needed help, and stayed the whole day helping with time, tools, materials and his knowledge!! Truly a generous soul! He then suggested we stay another night to make sure our repairs held. What a guy!
When we pulled up, we were lucky enough to have the host personally guide us to our site on his amazing property. He was in the process of installing a second 30 Amp hookup. It was very quiet and peaceful, and we really enjoyed our 2 days.
Wow what a beautiful spot. Found the place easily with very accurate directions on the site. We got setup with power and wifi (we chose a site with power which is off the water but worked great). Then walked down to the beach and around the little rocky peninsula on the property. The field sites are right there by the beach and peninsula. Beautiful views and I can only imagine the sunsets.
Communication with D n R were great. Got us going with the wifi and answered my our questions on the local area.
We are looking forward to stopping on our next trip past and staying a few days to the beach and lake.
G and G
What a beautiful spot to stop for the night! Wonderful hosts provided friendly assistance when we really needed it!
I would highly recommend stopping in at The Ranch to anyone travelling in the Kenora area! Hope to visit again someday!
The Ranch was just what we needed when the rain and snow flakes began. The grassy RV site is on a beautiful property by the lake. Don made sure we had water and Wi Fi. We were comfortable and commmend them for being such a great host.
We had a wonderful stay at The Ranch. Donnrita are excellent hosts, very accommodating, friendly and generous.
We enjoyed your beautiful property with it’s abundance of wildlife.
We highly recommend and hope to travel your way again. Thanks again for hosting.
Right by the water
Haven’t slept so well in years
Host was away
I hope to stay there in the future
This was an awesome boondocker location. Nestled on a lake in Northern Ontario just outside Kenora. Was great chatting with Don when we were setting up. Due to the rain coming we did not take one of the lake front spots but stayed for higher ground. This allowed us to hook up to one of his 30 amp poles. Great amenities, Great location and Great people. Some of the many benefits of the Boondockers website. We even had a group of deer stop by to say goodnight to us!!!
Thank you so much Donnrita!
Instructions to your home were clear and detailed, lots of hard-packed parking for our little rig looking into the meadow. We didn't take advantage of the fire pit or your fishing hints but appreciated the offer. Only disappointment was that our gracious, friendly hosts were off travelling so we couldn't say Thank You in person!
Although our hosts were not available, they provided very good instructions to their home. We took an evening walk along the shore, beautiful views of the lake, and avoided bothering the bunch of Canada Geese that were overnighting. Much thanx for hosting us, it was a perfect location to unwind!!!
Our host was very nice with us, we were stock in the mub with the rv and he gladly pull us out of trouble. It was very nice talking with the host? The location for the rv was very nice in a beautiful landscape. Thanks a lot for the stay!
We really enjoyed visiting The Ranch despite the rain and wind which prevented us from truly experiencing this beautiful property. We certainly would like to return when the weather is sunny. Thanks, D., for hosting us; we would certainly recommend you as a Boondock host and venue.T&V
P.S. Thanks for "unstucking" us!
At The Ranch, Donrita have been excellent hosts and provided us all the details for a wonderful stay. The Ranch is a dream oasis after the many hours on the road. A place right on a wonderful lake, it is so peaceful. Chatting with our host was great. An overall great experience. Thanks a lot.
This accommodating couple shared their gorgeous property with us, going out of there way to make our stay in the area possible and perfect. Would happily visit again. In fact, looking forward to it.
Thanks again Donrita. It felt good to pull into a familiar spot after a long days drive. Sorry you had to work but hopefully we meet again on our next trip East or if you are out our way.
Friendly and accommodating host and one of the most beautiful properties we have been lucky enough to stay at on our travels.
Joining BW was absolutely the best idea my wife has ever had! We had a great stay with DonnRita. I could not imaging anything better as a first experience. Thanks guys for sharing your wonderful property with us and for such great hospitality. Really look forward to seeing you both again down the road.
Our host told me he welcomed Boondockers because he loved his property so much that he wanted to share it. We are very lucky he feels this way, because it was a great treat for these tired travelers to spend even one night at such a special place.
Big beautiful property with all the services we needed.
The view on the lake is amazing! We would definitely stay there again!
Thank you. :-)
We were sorry not be able to hook up with our hosts as there was no-one home, my cell phone had died and no wifi, so unable to contact them. We were exhausted as our A/C had quit in our vehicle and it had been a very long day. Although it was pouring rain when we arrived, we were able to park right at lakeside - it was so peaceful and calming a location, it was a welcome destressor for us. The rain stopped and the sun came out later, so we could sit outside,listening to the birds and call of the loons before and turning for and early night.
Thank you for allowing us to stay at your gorgeous lake house! We loved meeting you and your family and getting some awesome recommendations. The fireworks show was icing on the cake. Take care and maybe we will see on another down in Arizona.
We were welcomed by Don and told to set up anywhere along the property. The Canada geese really like the waterfront! Lots of baby ducks and goslings!
Wonderful views of the lake and a magnificent sunset
Our little labradoodle was very welcome and she enjoyed her off leash time.
Thanks so much!
First Boondockers experience for us! The Ranch was beautiful. Very peaceful, nice lake lots of nature. Deers, turtles, bald eagle flying over head and more. Did not get to meet the hosts this time. Hopefully on the way back. Loved the Ranch.
So peaceful...so beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing your dream place with us.
Always nice to see a nice smile. Thank you for a place to rest our head for the night.
Our first boondockers welcome stay. Great hosts and amazing location. We booked for one night but stayed 2 as it was a perfect place to relax by the lake.
Thanks so much donrita.
This the most beautiful location that we have stayed at. Don and Rita have a beautiful property with options with a fantastic veiw or with services. While here we enjoyed seeing several Canadian geese families, loon families and a beaver. We enjoyed our chat with Don and we hope to see them again in the future.
Hôte chaleureux, généreux et disponible . Magnifique emplacement, reposant et tranquille. Une place de choix. Merci / Warm, generous and available host. Beautiful location, relaxing and quiet. A place of choice. Thank you
Don and Rita are the perfect hosts. They make you feel right at home; So much, in fact, you don't want to leave! hahaha. A perfect balance of relaxing atmosphere and great conversation. Quality and genuine people.
After driving over the property, he show us wonderful places.
We picked one, very beautiful and so quiet.
Donnrita give us warm welcome and a place nearby the electricity. It was an fabulous place to stay for us. We ware only one but it is a place for a holiday.
Repeat visitor here!
Our family had such a great time here last summer that we made a point to stay again this spring.
Beautiful property, wonderful hosts.
A pure pleasure.
This a nice property with a view of the lake many deer and geese.
We were unfortunately unable to spend time with you.
Inspite of a visit early in the season our host was totally accommodating and guided us to an ideal spot on a huge property where our RV would be level and the view of the lake ideal. Wanted to stay longer and listen to the loon calls out on the lake. Many thanks.
The view and surroundings were lovely. We received a warn welcome. Friendly and interesting hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would love to return when the ice is out of the lake. Great place! Great hosts!
Just as perfect as the first one.
Whiskey enjoyed running around:-)
Thanks again !
Wow. Fabulous spot and super friendly host - what can you ask more?
We didn't stay long, but it was perfect! We arrived later than planned, and he waited for us, and even helped us level the trailer. Such a gentleman.
Nothing but good words for that spot/host! Hopefully we will be able to come back in the future and stay longer.
What more can We say! Don and Rita welcomed us with open arms . There’re Property is so big and so well maintained that we felt like we were in Our own Private retreat!
We initially requested a stay of three nights ,but due to circumstances we arrived early and stayed later!
We certainly recommend The Ranch to All our fellow Boondockers!
Thanks again for an amazing stay!

We stayed two nights in their beautiful land and we were delighted by Don and Rita's hospitality. We hope to meet you again and you are very welcome at our place whenever you pass by our region. Thank you for all the help. Greta, Thor and Ian thank you so much!
This was one of our most enjoyable stays with Boondockers. Don & Rita we’re very friendly, helpful and made you feel right at home. They have a beautiful Ranch sitting on the edge of a peaceful lake with lots of room.
We were fortunate to have some interesting conversations with Don with lots of laughs. He’s a great guy.
I hope we have the pleasure someday to show him a little of Arizona.
A BIG thanks to Don & Rita, one of the Great hosts of Boondockers.
We could not have stayed anywhere as beautiful as this Lakefront Ranch !
Thank you Rita and Don

We cannot say enough good things about this host or his property! We enjoyed it so much we stayed an extra night.
The grounds were impeccably maintained and the fishing was spectacular!
The kids especially loved the little private island that they could catch crayfish from.
Our host was the nicest, most ambitious, hardworking man that we have ever had the pleasure of their acquaintance.
Definitely be back again!
We fell asleep with the cry of the loons.
Really quiet and beautiful environment.
Thanks D n R for being a Host for Boondockers.com. From your warm welcome to your beautiful property on the lake, everything was more than we expected. The peaceful and serene setting was just what we needed after a long day of driving through northern Ontario. We would highly recommend you to other Boondockers!
A dream location worthy of the best campsites!
Beautiful property by the lake !!!!
Amazing people :-)
My puppy & I loved our 3 days by the lake.
Thank you so much !!
After the hustle and bustle of driving all day it was sheer heaven to spend time at the ranch. Easy to find. Beautiful scenery and welcoming hosts. It doesn't vet much better. A longer stay maybe.
A beautiful place with lots of space and a fascinating rock formation i wish i could have explored more. Donnrita was a great host wirh lots of helpful information about the roads ahead that and allowed us to follow a really nice route to our next destination. Thanks Don, best drive in a long time! And getting fresh fish from the lake was fantastic!
The Ranch is absolutely beautiful. The directions given to us were easy and spot-on.
There was someone there to meet us and he even gave us some worms for fishing! We didn’t require any water or power but it was great knowing it was there if we needed it.
We fished on the rocky point and had deer right outside our trailer! Our evening and night was peaceful and quiet.
Would definitely recommend!
This spot is absolutely beautiful. A Park by the lake. We woke up to the Loon,s call. Very peaceful. Gracious hosts.
Don's a great guy and has an awesome spot. We did a little fishing while there and my wife fed a couple of deer. Couldn't ask for a better spot. Thanks Don!
Terry & Wendy.

Nicest ranch ever visited! Gorgious place!
