Suggested Local Attractions

We have the nicest pub nearby called Crow and Gate, even if you do not drink, it is quaint and good food! We have a lot of great swimming holes on the river and even one that is a 5 minute drive or easy bike ride away!

Very accommodating. When my next host didn't get back to me she was fine with me extending my stay. Thank you Jane! 🥰

Lovely Lady

Jane was a delight and went out of her way to make my stay comfortable. And her grapes are so delicious.

Great Place near the ferries

Great place to overnight if you are wanting to take an early ferry. This is such a calm and tranquil place. The name does not disappoint.

Artsy Acreage Living

What a great place to stay. Our hosts where so welcoming and friendly and the property was off the hook!

Near parks and trails

Found these two to be more than accommodating. Friendly and very helpful -- especially since I got caught in a heat wave that had me needing 30 amp service to run my air conditioner. If you are looking for a space to explore the many attractions between Nanaimo and Lady Smith, you will enjoy having this spot.

Incredibly gracious hosts

We've had an excellent stay with Jane and Richard. They are experienced RV'ers and were very welcoming from the moment we arrived.

We could hook up to their conveniently located 30amp RV socket. That was much appreciated, as our solar was not very useful during the rainy days. We were also able to refill our fresh water tank. This was also great as many public fill-up stations are closed for the Winter.

The spot itself is 100% level and located close to the house. The neighborhood is very safe.

Due to COVID-19 we've socialized fairly little. We hope to come back again and catch up on the travels after the pandemic.

More Calm than calamity!

Wonderful people and hassle free setting for my 19 foot Roadtrek! God willing, I will be back!
