Another great stay!

This was our second stay at Cossak1’s boondocking location and we enjoyed it as much as the first one! Our hosts warmly greeted us upon our arrival and made sure we felt right at home. This time, we wanted to go to a farmers’ market and do some hiking. They suggested some trails and a famers market. And once again, we had two peaceful nights on their lovely property and each morning, we had breakfast while listening to the birds. Thank you so much to these fantastic hosts!

Wonderful stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Ron and Pat. We would highly recommend staying at their lovely property. They were very gracious and accommodating and we appreciated that they allowed us to camp at their home, and enjoyed talking with them. A great stay!

Crofton Shire was amazing!!

The hosts of Crofton Shire were very welcoming, hospitable and wonderful. Equally wonderful was the property - and what a property it was!! Do take advantage of the walking trails as they have been lovingly created by the hosts with a couple of surprises along the way - including a Shire and a magical forest!!. Crofton Shire was centrally located for our travels within the Prince Edward County and I wouldn't hesitate to go back there another time. Thank you!!

Welcoming and friendly!

Our hosts were very friendly and made us feel very welcomed! The site is quiet, clean and well-maintained. We had a very good experience here and would gladly recommend them for future guests.
The night skies here great for star-gazing (a fantastic experience for urban dwellers, which we are)!

Thanks very much for a great introduction to the RV'ing world!

Wonderful hosts and boondocking location!

We stayed two peaceful nights at Cossak1’s boondocking location. Our RV was parked beside their beautifully landscaped backyard. In the morning, we would enjoy our breakfast while looking at their lovely garden and watching all the birds coming to the feeders. Cossak1 were wonderful hosts! We wanted to go cycling in the area and they suggested some less traveled roads with scenic views. We really had a great time cycling on these roads! We also talked to them about an upcoming road trip and they gave us good advice on finding boondocking sites along the way. We highly recommend this welcoming couple as hosts!

Fabulous hosts

We were hosted by Cossack1 and had a wonderful stay on their beautiful property. So sorry we didn't get a chance to meet you Ron, hope you are feeling better now! Thank you both so much for a great trip.

A great place to stay

Our first boondocking experience. The hosts accepted to have both my friend's and our motorhome at their place. Our hosts were not there for our visit, I guess they were boondocking somewhere! They seem to be very nice people (I met the neighbours) and they have a beautiful home and garden, very quiet place where you can relax and rest before visiting the surroundings. Many wineries to visit in the regions of Prince Edward County.

Would have liked to meet them but just being at their home, we know them already just by the way the created their gardens.
