Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My husband and myself have been married for 40+ years, retired from farming since 2006 but still living on the family farm which has been in the family going on 100 yrs.

Since retiring from farming we have been enjoying many different ways of seeing the world. Traveling in our Motor Home, backpacking in central America and on occasion cruising and all inclusives.

We enjoy hosting people from all over the world, swapping stories and learning about their travel adventures.

Lovely place

We had great time, so much so that we extended our stay. They were super nice, shared tips on what to do around and our children got to play the grandkids toys. We will definitely remember our stay, especially since our daughter took her first step at their house :)

Second Time and Still Charming

The stay was fabulous. We keep bringing the rain to this farm, but it is an easy in and out and very quiet nights. We spent the morning talking with our hosts and they let the kids play with their grandkid’s toys. It could not have been more welcoming. It is a visit we will remember.

Amazing views

Wonderful hosts and amazing views. Enjoyed the opportunity to chat about, well, everything, and share some travel stories. Would definitely stay again! Thanks guys!

Friendly Farm

Chryke49 helped us out in the rain when we got there and invited us in for coffee/tea and some good conversation for the evening to get out of the rain. There is plenty of room to maneuver in and out. We only spent one night, but plan on visiting again when we come back from Alaska and have to pass through again.

Beautiful location, easy for big rigs, lovely people

This was our first experience boon docking and chryke49 were wonderful hosts. They have a large flat area where we parked alongside two other RVers, who shared their knowledge with us and were great neighbours. Our kids loved it here, picking crabapples, chasing the cats, playing on the kids' playground. The feeling of solitude here is beautiful, and we feel very fortunate to have found chryke49 for our first boondocking experience.

nice hosts with easy access to park

We stayed one night with them able returning home after 3 months of travelling. Chryke49 are gracious hosts and we were lucky to be there when 2 other families had stopped. We all had a great time sharing experiences and learning from one another. Definitely a great stop!

Lovely place

We stayed here after a long day of driving. We were welcomed warmly and enjoyed our stay. We were even able to wash our dusty Roadtrek. Although our hosts were not there, their daughter greeted us and helped us out. She even allowed us to follow her into town so we could gas up and avoid driving another dusty gravel road. Thanks again for a wonderful stop on our journey in Canada. We would definitely return to this location.

Great couple & lovely place

Lovely place to stay, it's so quiet and peaceful. They are a great couple and very helpful if you need help.
Thanks for the dessert, it was delicious.

Wonderful Hosts!!

We can't say enough about how gracious and welcoming chryke49 are. Their place is fantastic (wide open and private at the same time) and we wish we could have stayed longer. Their hospitality went over and above what we expected. We would certainly love to stay with them again if we are in the area. Thank-you!!!

Peaceful stay with a great host

What a great way to experience cattle and grain country. We spent one night here recently and were welcomed with a smile. After being shown where to park and hookup to power and water, we were invited in for coffee. Thanks for the stories.

WOW! Great views and really nice people.

This is a really easy review to write. Our hosts were so nice. The views are spectacular.
We would love to go there again if we have the chance!!!

It is wide and open.

Spent one night here with some other Boondockers. We had great conversations with them all. We were amazed at how far one could see nothing but farms. Hope to see them again someday.

Wide Open Spaces :)

We enjoyed warm (campfire), friendly, helpful hosts while enjoying staying on their farm in the wide open spaces of southern Alberta. Also met other boondockers while there and both they and the hosts shared good information for us newby boondockers. Highly recommend Chryke49!

Wonderful hosts

We stayed a night here and enjoyed a lovely couple who have lots of travel experiences to share. Very welcoming and a great spot with wonderful views to the mountains.

Warm and friendly hosts

We stayed one night with Bev & Garry and were welcomed in their home for good conversation and to get acquainted. They are a well travelled couple who shared their experiences of travel to exotic places as well as to underdeveloped countries for their charitable work. We thoroughly enjoyed their hospitality and highly recommend staying at their farm.

Very nice hosts

We had a very enjoyable evening sharing travel stories and gaining area information from Bev and Garry. Beautiful quiet location too.

A wonderful spot; wonderful hosts.

These boondocker hosts, Bev and Garry, were most welcoming. Their farm near Pincher Creek Alberta provides amazing views of the surrounding countryside. I spent a lovely evening around a campfire with them, and slept well in this scenic, peaceful, and quiet (except for the howls of coyotes!) spot. Highly recommended. Thanks so much, Bev and Garry.

Best Hosts in the West!

This was our first time to try Boondockers locations and what a pleasant experience! Even though this farm is 20 miles south of Pincher Creek, Alberta, it was so worth the effort to get there. They went above and beyond the call of duty. Not only did they plug us in but also prepared dinner for us. We spent a most pleasant evening getting to know our gracious hosts. If you want a break from city lights, and noise, this is the place to go.
