We live in a single family home in a sub-division north section of Kemptville, ON that has homes on 1+ acre lots. This location is approximately 30 minutes south of Ottawa (Canada's capital) and 30 minutes north of Ogdensburg, NY. It is easily accessible from Highway 416 (exit 42 if traveling south and exit 34 if travelling north). Parking is available on our paved driveway, next to our rig. We can offer water and 30 amp electric - therefore no need to run a generator. We can also offer you high speed WiFi.
Have fun, enjoy yourselves, relax and take a load off. Although we have put a maximum of 2 days, this MAY be extended.
All roads from the highway to our house are paved and kept clear of low hanging branches. However, there are 2 traffic circles/roundabouts on County Road 43, soon after getting off the highway. Our Driveway is slightly sloping (nothing that can't be dealt with using blocks or jacks).
Driveway is approx 66' long and 24' wide. If 5th wheel and depending on length, you may not have to detach. If Class A, toad can park in front of rig, same with Class C. Class Bs, we can park two of you.
We can normally offer a place from May-early October. As we are also Rvers, there are times when we are "on the road". Please contact us to check availability. We usually check e-mail daily.
Parliament Hil, Governor General's Residence, Changing of the Guard, in summer, Ottawa museums and art gallery. Surrounding small towns along the Rideau River and canal lock system. Beautiful area to do site-seeing and just relax.
We stayed with BusyRetirees on Sept 5/17 and they were warm and welcoming. This was our first time using Boondockers Welcome and it was a great experience. Providing us with power and water and a bedtime snack, we had great conversation and a fantastic nights sleep after spending a couple of nights at truck stops. Thanks so much for your insight, advise, friendship and great hosting. Highly recommend staying here to anyone travelling through the area (if they're not out using 'Boondockers Welcome' themselves..).
An additional note: our having a dog with us was not an issue.
Great new friends we hope to meet up with on the road.

Marcel and Jeannette took time from their very busy schedule to welcome us, insure we were set up in their driveway and later made recommendations about sites to visit around the area. We spent a wonderful day hiking through a nearby forest and then along a trail on the historic Rideau canal, as well as a short time at the local farmer's market. We appreciated their hospitality.
