Description

Other than the noise and smell of the chicken barns across the road (my wife complains bitterly) there are no drawbacks to our location unless you arrive during freezing rain or a snowstorm.

House Rules

Good Question! With the pandemic thing, to borrow a phrase from German "Drei Schritt vom Leib" (not sure about the spelling) would be de rigueur.
Other than that, the only water hook-up I can offer is a cold water hose.
I do have a compost pile, am in the process of improving it.

Main rule, if you see a dog from your car, or someone waving, stop and wait.

If you are here and see a four-legged little one - simply crouch down or remain sitting until they get to know you.

The rest is basically common courtesy.

Feel free to include any pertinent details regarding your vehicle, dates and other needs in a written message, but no final decision on whether we can accommodate visitors can be made until at least one, old fashioned, conversation has taken place

Access Road Conditions

Payed road to the driveway. Gravel driveway. In winter, I wait until both parts of the storm have passed before having the driveway blown though.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

There are many options, just starting this location, if the longest transport can deliver here without issue, we can surely find you a spot - perhaps even in the shade for half the day.

The reason that I did not require lots of advance notice is that this artisanal production requires me to leave, sometimes for extended periods on sales trips.
If I commit to a someone "boondocking" while I am not present, my wife would not be a happy camper - happy wife, happy life!

Location

North Lancaster, ON, Canada

Suggested Local Attractions

The Ruins at St. Raphaels, South lancaster, Glen Nevis Church and Parish, very historical Dalhousie Mills Ontario - home of the Bathurst Legacy, the Round Church there as well, the Georgian House 1858 in Alexandria all of which can be reached by a competent cyclist(s). There is more, much more, but I talk way faster than I type.

Quiet country life

Thanks T for the lovely stay. We explored the area, watched the stars at night and listened to the birds during the day.
