Just perfect!

We were looking for a place to stay over on our way from Killbear to Algonquin Park and Fox Den worked out perfectly. Even though they had guests Ellen and her husband took time out from dinner to greet us and make sure we had everything we needed. They also invited us to join them around their campfire later that evening where we met their guests and chatted about our travels, etc.

Thanks again Ellen!

Excellent!!!

Ellen & her husband were wonderful hosts!
We enjoyed sharing our mutual travel tips & stories sitting with them by the lake.
They even lent us their amazing bug swatter to rid our camper of a few pesky mosquitoes 🦟 that snuck in 😊
A truly wonderful stay!

Her instructions are spot on πŸ‘πŸ»

Great hosts

The host was there to welcome us and treated us to a boat tour of the lake.
His wife arrived home in time for a shared glass of wine/cup of tea before we settled in for a very peaceful night on their property. Nice folks !
