The bar is set high

Twinholm was our first Boondockers Welcome experience and it far exceeded our expectations. Our hosts were warm and welcoming, and we had an incredible evening sitting around the fire visiting. What a piece of paradise in the city. We will be back to visit our friends at Twinholm again.

Paradise within the city

What a perfect place, within a crazy city. You actually feel like you are far in the country. This was our first boondocking location, and it will be hard to beat. Through pictures my father even said he hoped all our future sites were as nice as this one. Im taking chickens, a horse, and a dog, you can actually forget where you are for a few days.

Everyone was so very kind and helpful, couldn't have asked for a better host.

If ever you are in Costa Rica email us, we would love to show you around.

Fantastic! 5 Stars!

P.S. I am putting honey on everything, actually the best I have ever had!

A great first experience with BW

Our host was amazing. We were very fortunate to have the privilege of spending the night. So quiet and beautiful. Loved the horse and the chickens. We were even invited to share their campfire and some exceptional corn on the cob. Thanks for everything. Hope to see you again soon.

Perfect stop

Such a great guy. We arrived in the cold and rain and Ross was a great help. He invited us for wine after dinner and we had an hour of warmth in his house(greatly appreciated) plus delicious "home made" wine. We got to trade travel stories and fried chicken stories which apparently we both enjoy. We are really hoping to boondock here again on our return . Thank you Twinholm and good luck with your new place!

Do Not Pass this Place Up!

Twinholm and his beautiful, loving companion were the best hosts ever on the most conveniently placed and wonderful property. He was so kind and generous every day, we may have moved right in if we didn't want to see more of this wonderful province. We have a big rig and parking and getting out was so easy. It was level and peaceful with an easy train ride into Toronto. We could have just snuggled that dog forever. Best boondocker location so far for us. Thanks Twinholm.

We enjoyed our stay at Twinholm. Ross greeted us when we arrived & of course his dog which was super friendly.
He gave us some eggs from his chickens & honey. I have already had some honey - really good.
Can not thank you enough for making your place available to us.

Perfect Boondocking experience!

This is the perfect location to boondock! The host was extremely hospitable and great to talk to. We were able to park both our 31 foot RV and tow car. We loved his dog and horse. We hope to be back one day!

Terrific!

Incredibly generous host with a beautiful property that was very easy to negotiate even with our large fifth wheel. We talked about past and future travels and we hope that we can return the kindness once we have a permanent home in the future.

Awesome stay near the city

We had a great moment at Twinholm’s location. Our host welcomed us very well and even had a huge surprise for us as we were their 50th boondocker. Our dogs had a great time off leash and it was a very safe area. Would go back anytime

We had the warmest welcome from this Kind Spirited Soul

Don't hesitate to book a night at the Twinholm homestead~~~
It was a lovely stay at this 200 year old family farm. Our Host was generous with his time and attention. We only stayed overnight, but we had a lovely short visit. The phrase "its a small world" applies as having had my husband pick the site and arrange the stay, I was pleasantly surprised that we were staying just a few concessions away from where I grew up, and that his sister and I both attended the same primary school, years apart. I got a thrill out of bouncing names around with our host and knowing folks in common. I was able to spend the next day tromping around with my memories visiting the places I remember.
We can't say enough about our host and his welcome. Your sense of creativity was a breath of fresh air, i hope you can figure out how to take that wonderful tree stump village with you to your new homestead~ We hope to come see you again! We were so happy to have you as our first host with BoondockersWelcome~

It was an absolute pleasure to meet Ross & Barney. Their hospitality and warm welcome was second to none.

We very much enjoyed their beautiful location and lovely scenery.

We would highly recommend this location to any other boondocker.

Ross is amazing. He's what all humans should aspire to be. Glad we were able to meet him, our travels are more memorable because of him!

Beautiful setting

The host was extremely friendly and welcoming. He has lots of room and nice level areas in which to park.
We Ubered to the Go Train station in Oakville and then caught the train into Toronto knowing our truck and fifth wheel were safe and sound back at this location.
I would have no problem recommending this spot to anyone.

Wonderful Stay

Thank you so much for your hospitality.
We really enjoyed spending the night at your beautiful place.
It was lovely having a Happy Hour on your porch, thank you for the invite.
What a nice touch giving us some of your eggs when we left this morning. Cheers! We will have a lovely omelet tomorrow!! Thank you again!

Great place to stay

Ross was great. We had such a warm welcome! The place is beautiful and we really enjoyed our stay at his farm. We loved it and can absolutely recommend Ross as a host. A perfect place for Boondockers.

A gem in the heart of suburbia

Sorry this is so late - thought it was done. This location is a terrific old farm with absolutely charming hosts. These folks have what (I think) is an ideal location. You are in a semi working farm that has been handed down for generations. Horse(s?) chickens, very friendly dog and interesting congenial hosts. What more could you ask?

Wonderful country in the city

We loved staying at this hosts location. It was a peaceful spot overlooking a field. We enjoyed all the time we got to spend chatting with our hosts around the campfire, and getting to see their rig and set up. We enjoyed fresh eggs and honey too! Fascinating history of the property, and we hope to visit again next time we are in the area.

Great first Boondockerswelcome stay!

My stay was short, but could not have been nicer. It's a great location - a quiet and peaceful oasis close to Toronto - and Ross, Sylvia and Barney made me feel right at home. I hope to be able to get back for a longer stay soon!

Super nice guy. Hooked me up with fresh eggs and tomatoes when I left. Sat up late one night and solved the worlds problems (well, some of them anyways.) Quiet and easy to get in and out. Hi to Sylvia!

Awesome

For our first experience as boondockers, it couldn't have been better. From the first moments, we felt as if we were at an old friend farm or in the family.
Lots of space and quiet, electricity and good wi-fi.
Thanks so much to our hosts for their kindness.
And more thanks for the lifts to the train station.
We hope we could see you again somewhere... for having dinner and many other stories to share.

Peaceful Night at the Farm - Excellent First Boondocking Experience!

My family of six stayed with Ross and Barney after a very stressful day of driving. The peaceful farm was a welcoming change from the hustle and bustle of being on the road. I can not begin to describe the welcomed feeling that we received during our short stay. My husband and I joined Ross on his beautiful wrap around porch for an evening of chatting before turning in for the night. My daughter was overjoyed at the opportunity to meet Dawn - the horse, share some loving with Barney - Ross' dog, and watch chickens play in the yard.

Our parking spot was perfect, as it was nice and flat with great electrical hookup that powered not only a CPAP machine but also air conditioning, which was beyond appreciated. We never even had to unhook, as the area is nice and roomy - even for our 34' camper and Suburban.

We hope to return on our next trip through the area - only with a little extra time to enjoy. We all left wishing that we had just a bit more time to chat and enjoy the quaint farm life and cozy porch!

Thanks again Ross!

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful farm! Great location close to the train into Toronto. Lots to explore in the area. Ross could not have been a more hospitable host. We were lucky to share a lovely evening around the campfire with Ross and another Boondocking couple.

Thank you so much for hosting us last weekend. We enjoyed meeting you both and we're grateful for a beautiful, quiet place to stay. Hopefully we an welcome you for a visit.

Extremely nice people

Contacted Twinholm at last minute because we wanted to reach and visit the Niagara region. Quick reply and very good communication.

Easy to find location in a beautiful environment.

We had plenty of interesting chats with them while sitting in their backyard enjoying a glass (or few) of wine in front of a campfire.

Although we had planned to stay 2-3 nights and then move to the Niagara region itself, we finally stayed 7-8 days and traveled back and forth to Niagara. We then moved on to the Windsor region, but stopped for one more night on our way back home.

I believe we have made new friends and would be happy to visit them once more or host them if requested.

We highly recommend to stay at Twinholm.

Thank you so much once more ! ! !

Great Hosts

We stayed in at Twinholm Sept 2017. Great host with lots of recommendations for traveling to Toronto and Niagara Falls. Stayed 3 nights while visiting attractions. Large area, no problem turning around our 60ft truck and trailer.
Friendly host providing relaxing atmosphere and evening campfires.
Thanks for your hospitality.

Fabulous place to stay

We said at Twinholm for 2 nights, Sept 9-11 with 2 of our friends in their own rigs. Our host was great, he gave us so much information and made us feel completely welcome. After a long day trip to Niagara Falls it was so nice to feel like you were coming home. We were invited to campfires and enjoyed some good conversation over a glass of wine. Thank you so much, this was our first Boondockers Welcome experience and you made us feel safe and comfortable.

Very, very, very great

We stay there 2 nights, the farm is near Toronto, calm and not noisy, at 10 minutes of a station. It's a perfect place to go if you want to visit Toronto. Twinholm is a very great person, and his wife too.
Thank you so much!
We recommande this nice boondocking!

The perfect country haven

A lovely stay with the most accommodating people, we were welcomed in to hear of adventures past and met the handsome Barney the Brittany Spaniel who was very generous with cuddles.
The location is very well situated for those that want to venture into Toronto for the day with the Go train station a 10 min drive away.
Thank you for having us, and if we pass through your way again we will definitely stop by :) Nat and Alex.

Country Living Close to the City

When my travel plans quickly changed just before the Labor Day weekend, when most campgrounds are full, Twinholm came to the rescue with a spot I could set up camp. We hit is off and I enjoyed the farm environment. I would consider returning the next time I am in the area.

Wish we had more time

We appreciated the welcome at Twinholm Farm, and the extra effort to make us feel welcome. While we did not stay overnight, our Rig enjoyed 4 nights at the Farm, while we spent time with friends in Toronto. The offer of drives to and from the GoTrain made this very convenient. We only wish we had more time to spend a night to really enjoy the fantastic wrap-around patio and wonderful welcome with our host. Highly recommended, and we hope to welcome you on the West Coast some time soon!

Twinholm is "The bees knees" !

This was my first ever boondockers welcome experience. It was fantastic! I told our hosts that I should just stop using this site because anything after would likely be a disappointment.
I have a larger sized trailer, but was welcomed to park next to one of the large barn/outbuildings. There was a 30amp hookup which was just what i needed.
I very much enjoyed my time spent swapping stories and enjoying wine on the farmers porch with a view of the fireflies and a show of candle lights. My dog Briggs made friends with Barney the sentinel Spaniel.
Lovely people, and I only hope they enjoyed my company as much as i did theirs.

P.S. If you are coming from the States... bring Jimmy Dean sausage for Ross!!!

BOONDOCKERS TRULY WELCOMED HERE!

This idyllic 'Century Farm' is not more than 4 miles from our previous home in Oakville. For years we drove by this property and always admired its charm and appeal and the beautiful white horses grazing in the pastures. For our very 1st Boondockers Welcome experience we couldn't have chosen a more perfect spot! We came for 2 nights and returned 1 week later for another 2 nights!

The host, is gracious, generous and welcoming. We were invited to relax on the beautiful wrap around porch, share the fire pit(s), gaze at the full moon and generally, just make ourselves at home. The property is spacious and there was ample room for our 'big rig' to maneuver the drive and park.

The big bonus is 'location, location, location'. Just minutes from the highways (and public transit) to Niagara Falls to the west and Toronto to the east. Plenty of shopping and restaurants are also close by.

Thank-you Twinholm for a great experience. It was "BEEYOND" our expectations.

Beautiful farm and welcoming hosts!

Twinholm was very welcoming and accommodating. He offered Woodstove Pizza the evening I came along with a glass of wine and hours of great conversation. We even had a campfire. His farm hosts horses and very beautiful and quiet. I was able to plug in. Highly recommend!

Loved the Corn

Ross & Sylvia were rally nice to us. They even gave us some fresh corn from their garden which we thoroughly enjoyed. WE appreciate the stay at their place for two nights. They advised us to take the GO Train to Toronto and that really was a wise decision because of the traffic and the road construction.
Thanks again and we hope to see you in Alabama at our place next spring.

What a great guy!

The missus and I stayed with Twinholm on his marvellously tranquil farm with very short notice and he was more than obliging, kind and patient with us newbies. Tons of space, firm footing under tires. He even waited up for us to return from dinner out and invited us to join him at his campfire where we talked about neat places we'd all been, what we thought of boondocking etc. over wine and beer.

There wasn't a sound all night and we slept like the dead. Thanks Twinholm. If this first experience is any indication of what the rest of the Boondocking community is like then we're thrilled to be new members!
