Ottawa is the Capital of Canada. (I am sure you already know that). We are located about 5 miles from Parliament Hill. We are close to the Rideau Canal, and Mooney's Bay Beach. There are many summer festivals in Ottawa and lots of museums and national historic sites to visit. We have a very long driveway that can fit our 44 foot class A motorhome and still have room for a car. We store the motorhome off site when not in use so driveway should be free. The back slides can open but the side slides may be too close to the retaining wall, depending on your rigs configuration.
We are health conscious, and plant based, we would prefer no BBQing animal products, or smoking in the yard.
Paved road. Driveway has a slight slope but still livable
All depends on your rig and toad size. There's usually street parking.
We are usually not here over the winter, not that anyone want's to come then anyway.
Parliament Buildings, Aviation Museum, Museum of Civilization, the Mint, National War Museum, Byward Market, Rideau Canal, etc. Very clean, safe, easy city to access with lots of cultural and historic attractions.
We love that we have much in common!
Grandli was very kind to let us stay in his driveway and plug in for the night. We only came for one day and didn’t get to talk with him that much because he was very busy but he was very kind and accommodating. We will keep you guys in our prayers please reach out if you are ever in Oshawa.
Grandin were perfect hosts, sharing their driveway, their lovely gardens and their lives with us for a day or too, despite some trying personal circumstances. Good people and we wish nothing but the absolute best for them.
We had a great stay with grandi. The couple of days were very busy for both of us. We had some good conversation and had a great time in Ottawa. These are very nice people, very helpful. A great location to the capital, about 10 minutes away. 2 blocks from the river bike path that will take you almost anywhere you want to go.
A great stay, thanks.
We had a great experience here and were encouraged to stay longer than the original two nights. A good place to be in a quiet neighbourhood.Relatively easy to get to town by bus or by train and bus. I highly recommend these hosts.
Our host were perfect. They were helpful, respectful, welcoming. They give us information about places to visit. I would recommended staying there. If we go back to Ottawa, it will be for sure our host.
As it was our first boondocker experience we are so happy that our host was so friendly and helpful! Great! We enjoyed our stay.
Unfortunately our schedule did not mesh but were helpful and kind when communicated together. Gladly stay here for a longer period of time.
This couple are simply wonderful hosts. Every time we stay with them we leave wishing we could have stayed longer.
They are warm and friendly, very generous with offerings from their garden and very willing to share their vast knowledge.
The ideal example for Boondockers Welcome hosts!
I arrived early evening and they treated me to a cocktail while we sat and chatted in their outside gazebo. Very friendly and welcoming couple. Lovely garden, where I was invited to pick their abundance of snow peas for myself - they were delicious! The kale was looking rather sad - it was providing sumptuous pickings for a local groundhog. This host is very much in demand; I stayed 3 nights and someone was coming in right after - a third time visitor. I look forward to spending more time with them in future. Thank you Grandli!
We had a really nice time with them, Talked for hours about our RV ing experiances, they gave us some tips on for our road ahead and shared a beer.We would have stayed longer but they already had the spot booked for the next two nights. Would stay again if we are ever back in Ottawa area. Would let them stay at our house if we had one.
We had a comfortable stay at this lovely, quiet location. Very convenient for touring Ottawa. Our hosts were very informative and helpful. There is a peaceful green space directly across the street from the drive.
Extremely welcoming people who made us feel at home. Our stay was already special, as we visited Ottowa on Canada day. However, our amazing hosts really made our visit unforgettable.
This was my first experience using Boondockers website.
I couldn't have wish for a better experience.
They were so welcoming & generous.
I stayed longer than I planned to.
Very well located, calm neighborhood.
I recommend ! :-D
Our second boondockers experience. The location is close enough to the city with bus 87. The property is beautiful and quiet in the night. Lisa and Andrew were very kindly, Andrew helped us with the electricity. We stayed two nights and it was wonderful. We recommended this place. Thank you for the stay.
We were in Ottawa for the Canada 150 celebrations and were greeted so very well for our 2 night stay.
They were generous and helpful... they even had a couple of maps handy for us!
Thank you very much!
Our generous hosts greeted us warmly, helped with electricity and water; gave us maps and brochures for downtown along with practical suggestions. We chatted so long, I'm sure their supper was cold. Intending on staying two nights, we actually doubled our stay to take advantage of Ottawa's 'Doors Open' event. A most enjoyable stay. Thank you so much. Hope to see you down east!
Lots of advance information for us Brits in Canada for the first time and a rented RV. There were a few shortcomings with the rental vehicle which our hosts helped us to overcome. Very welcoming and helpful. Very close to bus stops into town. Thanks for a pleasant first Boondocking experience.
It was a real pleasure to meet Grandli. We stayed only one night but we felt like home. Hoping to see them again!
We got a very warm welcome.
Very friendly and opened minded hosts.
Had a nice conversation with them.
We felt like being at home. Had everything we needed for our 2 nights we stayed. Easily hook up to electricity and water.
There is a bus driving downtown in about 20 minutes.
We stayed one night with Grandli in September 2016. Their driveway is sloped but was not a problem. Easy hook-up to electricity and water. Super friendly couple who invited us into their backyard screened area to enjoy conversation over a glass of wine. We really appreciated that they offered the use of their guest "loo."
We stayed back in July for two nights while visiting Ottawa. Hosts were accommodating and made room for us in their driveway providing electrify and water. It was raining and their driveway was just fine. Thanks for the great boondocking stay.
We had a great stay in Ottawa, and appreciated our welcome. Thank you for hosting us, even when you had guests!
We enjoyed our conversations, and your welcoming nature and flexibility. We hope to see you on the west coast some time!
They are very accommodating, very open personalities. recommend highly, very close to the transit bus routes to downtown.
The closest one could expect, with a wonderful dog park very close. Great advice for all trips around and in the city. Garden is great for sharing when in season, and easy to trade stories of ours and theirs RV travels and Blunders. Haha. We have a 36 ft motor-home and lots of room. we stay a few nights in June 2016, and they responded very quickly. less than 48 hours.
Enjoyed our brief stay. Great location.
Beautiful yard and garden. Very helpful with great suggestions. Loved hearing about their Travelling experiences. Definitely recommend this gem in Ottawa. Thank you for making our first boon docking a great one. Solera
This was our very first boondockerswelcome experience and it was superb.
Lisa and Andrew were very friendly and helpful. Even offered us veggies from their garden.
We are looking forward to meeting them again as we found we had many things in common.
Stayed Aug 21,1015. Lovely place,great people.
We really appreciate our short stay in this quiet residential area of Ottawa just near the river. Lisa and Andrew where very friendly and generous. We will surely come back .
Very helpful hosts and very generous. Sharing more than just their driveway but also their beautiful garden and advice. We were only there a day and were sightseeing most of that but they were very gracious hosts when we saw them. Thank you very much
Lisa and Andrew are great hosts. Very helpful and accommodating. Their site is very close to downtown Ottawa and Ottawa is a great place to visit.
We were very fortunate to spend a night with Lisa and Andrew on our epic road trip across Canada. Andrew and Lisa are a wonderful couple and took very good care of us. Wanting to ride our bikes on the Rideau Canal, their house is about 5 minutes from the Rideau River and onwards to the canal. We hope to visit again.
We stayed a couple of nights with Lisa and Andrew - lovely hosts and a great place from which to explore Ottawa by public transport.
This is a very nice spot in a central location in Ottawa. Easy access to downtown by bus. The hosts are charming, interesting and very accommodating. They helped me with problems I had with my new Roadtrek, invited me into their garden and home, shared RVing stories (and photos),and generally provided me with a delightful first experience at a Boondockers Welcome site, for which I am most grateful. Highly recommended!
