A beautiful stay

Our hosts went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The main reason for our visit to the Sudbury area was to see my brother. Our hosts said he was welcome to visit. Further they offered us their fire pit patio to use which we did in the heat of the afternoon each day. They also took us for a boat cruise on their beautiful lake on our last afternoon.
We do want to thank them for their hospitality and warm generous spirit.

Very Helpful

Byebob and his wife where are wonderful hosts.

In addition to wifi and both electric and water hookups, they were very kind and welcoming. They even offered us a delicious loaf of homemade bread.

I was having trouble with my refrigerator and he volunteered to help me fix it.

Thanks so much for letting us stay with you both on your lovely property!

Another great stop-over!

It's such a treat after weeks on the road to have a comfortable place to come back to with friendly people who make you feel at home. Sorry we couldn't visit and share tales of our adventure on this stay - maybe you two need to come visit us?! Thanx!

Thank you so much for a relaxing, enjoyable stay. And for inviting us to stop again on our way home, we will try hard to make that happen.

A little bit of paradise

Fantastic hosts and a beautiful back yard lake view. It doesn't get any better than that. We were humbled by their generosity and are grateful that they could accommodate us with the short notice we gave.

Way Better than we expected...

Bob and his wife made our stay very especial by opening their house to us. What started as a simple overnight stay end up in a very pleasant morning with a chance of using their beautiful little paradise by the lake...
Than you for your warm hospitality guys!...

Bye the Lake is a wonderful spot, with a nice level site and electricity. They are very welcoming and gracious. I enjoyed getting to know them and we have several Roadtrek friends in common, so they felt like family. I hope we see each other again! Many thanks.

First time and found heaven

I had my first boondocker expriend here and i fell inlove with the boondocker experience. I was nervous and the hosts put me at ease immediately. In fact there were several other boondockers present and they all welcomed me into their family. The hosts could not have been more gracious. I would most defineately say they were incredible. I thank u for my first great experiene w boondockers.

wonderful hosts and location!

This is one of the most beautiful locations we have had the pleasure of visiting. Byebob and his wife are gracious and fun hosts. we had a wonderful time having coffee on the porch overlooking the lake, and great conversation over breakfast. Hope to see them again on the road some day

Thanks for boondocking!

We stayed with the ByeBob`s for two nights. From the very beginning on we felt so welcomed. We were invited for coffee in their beautiful house and we enjoyed chatting with them about life, travelling and future plans.
They allowed us to park our rig in their parkway next to the house and they gave us full hook up with WIFI. Awesome!
The retired couple owns a peaceful property at a lake with a small private beach and firepit. At the second day they helped us to bring our canoe to the lake and we were able to start a small tour on the lake which we really enjoyed. They helped us also with some repairs on our rig in the afternoon which we really appreciate.
We feel very lucky that we had the opportunity to meet and boondock with them.

Unfortunately we couldn’t say thanks and goodbye when we left.

We wish you guys all the best and fun on your own roadtrips. Safe travels for you!

Diana and Tobi
