Shaun made sure that we were comfortable and was very pleasant to chat with. Sylvie(?) presented us with fresh carrots from her garden
Shaun received us in front of his beautiful handy constructed house. He shows us the name’s place “By the Barn” … it is really that! And more, we have a good overlook of the bay along the Outaouais River. He came back in the evening to see us and ask if everything is ok. We have a good talking on our respective life. We highly recommend Shaun’s “By the Barn” place.
We had a very nice stay at their beautiful location over looking the bay. Was very quiet and very private next to the barn.
They came and checked on us a few times to make sure we were ok and they were very accommodating.
Would love to stay there again if passing through the area...
Shaun met us at the road to show us in and got us set up, and checked back a couple of times to make sure everything was ok.
As we were both busy, we didn't spend a lot of time socializing, but we really appreciate being allowed to stay here.
The spot was beautiful, well maintained. We liked the walking trail and quietude of the site and area in general.
Plus it was close enough to visit family in Orleans a couple of times over the weekend.
Our hosts got us quickly settled in and hooked up with electric. Nice spot looking over the Ottawa River with beautiful fall colours as a backdrop. Nice trail right along the water's edge. Very private and quiet.
Shaun welcomed us with open arms by cell and golf cart after our GPS sent us slightly astray. He escorted us to what can only be described as an absolutely beautiful site between two older barns. There is even wood for a campfire if you desire along with trails to the river. He ensured everything was to our satisfaction before leaving and even checked in later to make sure that things were OK. We were pleased to be able to give him some information on RVing in Mexico. This is a fantastic place to stay if you’re in the area.
